Islam, religion of women's equality
In this case, in case you're wondering, it's the story of an eight year old girl whose father married her off to a creditor to satisfy his debts. Call it slavery if you want, I won't object.
The most recent ruling, in which the judge upheld his original verdict, was handed down Saturday in the Saudi city of Onaiza, where late last year the same judge rejected a petition from the girl's mother, who was seeking a divorce for her daughter.The relative said the judge, Sheikh Habib Al-Habib, "stuck by his earlier verdict and insisted that the girl could petition the court for a divorce once she reached puberty."
The head of the Saudi so-called human rights commission claims that they're trying to stop child marriages, and they claim that they've even stopped one (!!) of them. Maybe they should try just a tiny bit harder.
