Where is the OUTRAGE by ISLAMIC leaders, how can they condone this kind of behavior, or not say anything, and think that the rest of the world will think their religion is worth taking seriously other than to be banned outright for such EVIL practices? When a religion condones evil practices, they are taking God's Name in vain. Western culture has many evil practices, but Christianity would NEVER condone such an evil act.

Really? I see this a huge propaganda article!! Consider the sources here people!! The Vatican? What have the churches and priests done for years and years to young boys? What has the Vatican done? Nothing and we do not need a source to tell us that is truth! I'm not pro anything so don't get all hill billy on me just yet! Poeple need to wake the fuck up, whatever religion or country or whatever! Stop pointing fingers and get off your ass and do something about it!! This kind of thing happens in all corners of the world and I've heard worse stories from the backyard of the United States of America, Canada Europe and Countries alike! It has nothing to do with Islam or Christianity it has all to do with fucked up people! A person of God wouldn't do this I don't care what religion you are. How can they? how can they? How can we condone this as a human race? I think that is the better question!

There are not enough words for how hideous the child bride system is. Could they at least allow 3 to 4 years or menstruation BEFORE making/allowing child to marry?

This is what you call religion you fuckers? Allowing an 8 year old HUMAN to be brutally raped by a paedophile.

Horrific. :'( How can anyone, in any country, of any religion think that marrying off an 8 year old is okay? And how can any man in any country, of any ethnicity, of any country or religion believe that it is okay to have sex with a child. This is a sad day in a sad, sad world.

No I totally believe in tolerance when it comes to cultural differences. But in this case while I am thinking how to understand this level of cultural perspective, that man should be taken outside stripped naked, have a rough cord tied securely around the offending organ and dragged through the streets until the parents his young wife feel that justice had been done. May Allah be kind to his wretched soul.

i dont think the issue is just re defining what constitutes a child. there is a much bigger problem in my opinion that could explain why young girls are being married off in the first place. i believe that poverty is the driving force. of course the islamic understanding is that both girls and boys at the age of puberty become responsible in terms of their religious obligations like praying and fasting etc however there are also clear guidelines in islam concerning marriage, the most obvious one being that it has to be consensual. so i dont think its entirely accurate or fair to say islam is the cause of this problem in yemen or elsewhere. also id like to add that this problem of child marriages is predominately common among the poor. so if human rights org are really concerned than they should be saying something about the impact of poverty on families.

If this was the US he would be in jail and so would his family a fitting punishment for child abusers. This is intolerable. These girls should be in school or at play not sold as brides where they are subject to rape. It is rape so let's tell the truth. What a horrible bunch of people.

This is just sickening are these people animals. What kind of culture would look at a child in this way and think that it is normal

Tomorrow my daughter will be 16 years old...I could not imagine being so cold toward my daughter that I'd sell her like cattle to a monster like that. Tomorrow I will light her candles and be even more thankful to have such a good daughter...alive, smiling, safe. Stories such as these break my heart.:(

How does one get sexual gratification from a screaming, bleeding child??

Anonymous (not verified) Tue, 09/10/2013 - 01:10

Sadly this is a Muslim thing. I'm not surprised so many Muslims are opting to become Christian. If not for any other reason than to save their daughters from this kind of crap. I know In Iran it's lawful to even marry your first cousin. They'll cut your head off for preaching Christ Jesus and getting Baptized but are okay with having their daughters sold into marriage just to have them raped and treated as a piece of property. Sheesh people get civilized.

This is disgusting! anyone doing this on 'culture' 'religion' or whatever bullshit is not worth being called a human, NO culture or religion supports this, if only people would just think as humans rather than animals and stop taking the cover of culture etc for their sick actions

Any man that violates a child deserves nothing less than death. Cut his nuts off and let him bleed out!

My heart goes out to a soft, sweet little girl who certainly cried for her mother while she was being raped and brutalized by a MONSTER. SHAME ON YEMEN. You are shamed before the world for allowing this to happen to the children of your country

I have been sat here for 20 minutes in shock , disgust , despair , and most importantly , helplessness . That grown man, with all the knowledge and experiences of hardship that comes over the duration of his 40 years commits this atrocity to a young girl experiencing her first chances at a life that had the potential to blossom and create joy , to be destroyed by a culture that condones such activities . Time will tell whether humanity can invest its mind to reason, consideration and self control . 50 million to be married off before 15 years of age MEH . Brothers of the world , sort it out - Let people blossom . To the girl in the article , whoever you are, young girl, you are not forgotten

That this should happen to any child is horrendous...but the worst part is that the "father" of the child would allow her to be married at such a young age, knowing full well that her husband would deflower her and hurt her is unforgivable...both men should be shot. Women in those countries have no rights and children even less.

No details, no names, no precise place... You call that information really?
Oh, wait... We need propaganda to convince masses to bomb Syria and... 'Yemen is currently showing unconditional support to the Syrian government, and is one of the few Arab countries that has supported President Bashar al-Assad.'

OK got the point.

This is frightening, but I'm also curious where the sources are of this information? I'm having a hard time locating the author of this article even. Can anyone back up this horror story?

The "husband" should be charged with First Degree Murder, Child Murder and Rape. The cleric and parents should be held as "accessories" to the same crimes. Parents should also be charged for human trafficking, prostituting of a minor. This is a fine example of evil being treated as acceptable and encouraged under the falsehood of religion. Any religion, worth its merit, protects the weak and keeps the strong as accountable. Islam does not do this. Islam's very roots are words from a pedophile, rapist, polygamist, murderer, thief and liar. More it is a religion of satan, than that of a gentle god. Beware, men and women who swear they write God's words, as many false prophets condemn themselves to darn nation by their own pen.

"One of the main issues is that there is currently no consistent established definition of a "child" that has been agreed upon worldwide. This leaves various interpretations within countries and little protection for those who are affected."

No, the problem is Islam. The sooner you can admit that, the sooner little girls like this one will be spared a lifetime of misery.

Muhammad "married" 'Aisha when she was six and began raping her when she was still a prepubescent nine-year-old. That's why chilid-rape-as-marriage is a problem in "the Middle Eastern region" and why the age limit was rejected as "un-Islamic."

And this article's obfuscation in defense of Islam's institutionalized pedophilia only facilitates its crimes against humanity.
