Islam has failed to protect our children - we need to look somewhere else....

Islam is the reason why pedophilia is so rampant in our society. All those who disagree with me are welcome to post their arguments here. Unpunished pedophiles are roaming free because of a legal system based on Sharia Law.
We Maldivians thought that Islam was the answer to everything. We sent our our children to Arab and Muslim land so that they may may bring back the true teachings of Islam. We created Islamic schools like Arabiyya and Mauhadh to teach our children Islam.
We based our judicial system on Sharia Law.
The "Ghazi" who metes out the sentence is educated in Islamic Law.
And what is the result?
Police Sergeant Shiyam says - "We present the alleged abuser to court and it's the court that decides whether we can detain them or set them free.
Abdullah Mohamed, chief judge at criminal court says when it comes to girls, puberty is a significant factor as according to Sharia law, she will be considered an adult.
What do you expect from a cult whose founder Mohammed at age 54 took a 6 yr old as his "wife" ?
Sheik BA Naseem and other Islamic Scholars are openly condemning a minimum age of marriage!
Don't tell me this religious view has nothing to do with the lenient pass that pedophiles are getting.
So what happens?
So what happens is Naseem So is enjoying a stiff woodie in a classroom filled with children.
Ghazis educated in Islamic jurisprudence set him free.
The President who presided over this 30 year horrendous miscarriage of justice regarding the protection of the children is a great Islamic luminary educated at Al-Azhar University. And where is the Education Minister the Honorable Zahir Hussein Al-Azharee who presided over cover-up attempts of NaseemSo? Another Islamic Scholar?
Islam has not provided the moral compass and the penal system necessary to protect our children.The answer is not in these pages.

Maldivians who are still capable of exercising their buddhi must do so and speak out. The answer to protecting our chilren is not in Islam or Islamic scholars. Islamic education has clearly failed to do so.
Muslims will once again say "When we practice true Islam that will not happen". I am not waiting for more Maldivians to go to Pakistan, Egypt and Mecca to bring back true Islam.
That line is a Utopian pipe dream that maintains a healthy job market for "Islamic Scholars".

    Very true! Do you think we are the minority or they are? If we lot came out on streets, would that make a difference? I can't take this anymore! my life is like 600AD, when i know im in 2009, and can see the future.but i can't make future with this religion bull crap.

  2. Anonymous,
    We must stand up against these Mullahs preaching a 7th century ideology that sanctions a 54 yr old man to rape a 6 year old child under the guise of marriage. They are promoting and enforcing gender apartheid, they are trying to censor and gag freedom of speech. They are dragging our country backwards to 7th century arabia.
    We must stop this by exposing and refusing to accept their crazy ideology.
    And we must find a way to unite against them.

    Joseph, Mary's husband, was "90 years old" when he married 12 to 14-year old Mary! Was he too a pedophile?Let's discuss the age of Aisha being 9 when she married our Prophet in Islam!

    First of all, it is important to know:

    Aisha's parents were the ones who married her to our Prophet, and that no Muslim or even pagan objected to the marriage because it was widely practiced. And even until today in 3rd world countries (Muslims and non-Muslims), little girls as young as 9 or 10 do get married. Anyway, the reason no one objected was to the Prophet's marriage was:

    People used to have very short life-spans in Arabia. They used to live between 40 to 60 years maximum. So it was only normal and natural for girls to be married off at ages 9 or 10 or similar.

    Marriage for young girls was widely practiced among Arabs back then, and even today in many third-world non-Muslim and Muslim countries.
    how old was your grandma when she got married?
    Answering Islam: 12 perhaps

    My response to the "Child Molester" lie against Prophet Muhammad:
    Narrated Aisha: "The Prophet engaged me when I was a girl of six (years). We went to Medina and stayed at the home of Bani-al-Harith bin Khazraj. Then I got ill and my hair fell down. Later on my hair grew (again) and my mother, Um Ruman, came to me while I was playing in a swing with some of my girl friends. She called me, and I went to her, not knowing what she wanted to do to me. She caught me by the hand and made me stand at the door of the house. I was breathless then, and when my breathing became Alright, she took some water and rubbed my face and head with it. Then she took me into the house. There in the house I saw some Ansari women who said, "Best wishes and Allah's Blessing and a good luck." Then she entrusted me to them and they prepared me (for the marriage). Unexpectedly Allah's Apostle came to me in the forenoon and my mother handed me over to him, and at that time I was a girl of nine years of age. (Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Merits of the Helpers in Madinah (Ansaar), Volume 5, Book 58, Number 234)"
    Notice here that Aisha's mother and the Muslim women back then were ok with her marriage. It was part of the Arab custom and still is in many of the Muslim and non-Muslim countries today for girls to marry at a very young age. When a girl's body starts showing up (her breasts and her height and physical size), then she would be ready for marriage.

    Was Aisha engaged to someone else before she got engaged to Muhammad?

    I was told that Aisha was already engaged to a non Muslim man named Jober Ibn Al-Moteam Ibn Oday. Back then, the people of Mecca did not object to Aisha's engagement to Jober because she was physically big enough and tall enough to be considered for marriage. Her parents saw that and they engaged her to Jober.

    The only reason why Aisha's father, Abu Baker Al Siddeek, broke her engagement with Jober is because he was a non-Muslim. Later, a woman named Kholeah Bint Hakeem suggested for Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him to marry Aisha, because the Prophet and Abu Baker became best friends. Prophet Muhammad engaged Aisha for 2 years before he married her.

    Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was not a child molester as the haters of Islam claim. He was a Noble Messenger of God. Muhammad peace be upon him lived in a society and culture that existed 1400 years ago, and we must not judge what he or others did based on our standards today. It is wrong and foolish to do so.
