Pakistani lawmakers had to withdraw a bill aimed at curbing the practice of child marriage after a prominent religious body declared the legislation un-Islamic.

The bill, which proposed raising the marriage age for females from 16 to 18, also called for harsher penalties for those who would arrange marriages involving children. Despite the laws in place, child marriages, particularly involving young female brides, are common in parts of the country. It's estimated that some 20 percent of girls in the country are married before they turn 18.

But the Council of Islamic Ideology, a constitutional body which gives advice to parliament on the compatibility of laws with Sharia, appeared to slap down the legislation after deeming it "un-Islamic" and "blasphemous," according to Agence France Presse. It had already handed down a similar ruling in 2014.

Did you read this part:

Clerics on the council object to minimum age requirements, arguing instead that an individual can marry once reaching puberty, which can be as early as the age of 9.

I watched a documentary in school once about Pakistan and they went to a water park and every went on the slides and stuff with their clothes on.

Did you read this part:


Girls can reach puberty way earlier than 9. Those assholes should do some damn research. Shaking my head.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

sorry this isn't new news to me


the Guinness book of world records consistently has its youngest marked marriages in Bangladesh, usually infants. my grandma got married when she was 13. my parents weren't arranged but most of their friends were so a bunch of my friends' parents were arranged at a young age

I like pumpkin personally, but I've heard conflicting information about whether they count as a fruit or not.

Yeah it's gonna take Islam a few years to finally make pedophilia illegal. Hopefully they'll get there, though. Certain progressive Muslims think pedophilia is bad. So I look forward to it when Islam becomes fully modernized and no longer sanctions pedophilia.
