    Malaysian Muslims below the age of 16 are allowed to marry if they obtain the permission of a religious court.
    But the country's women and families ministry said there was no record of religious authorities approving the union, which took place last month across the border in Thailand's largely Muslim far south.
    "Our officers have gone to the house and met the girl's mother. We are waiting for more reports before deciding on the next course of action," deputy prime minister Wan Azizah Wan Ismail was quoted as saying by the Sunday Star newspaper.
    The 41-year-old husband could be jailed for six months if he married without permission.
    Malaysian activists have called for law reform to end child marriage, which they said was widespread among the country's Muslim population.
    Some 16,000 Malaysian girls below the age of 15 are already married, advocates claim.
    "Marrying a 11-year-old girl is like the behaviour of a child predator or paedophile," child activist Syed Azmi Alhabshi told AFP.
    Alhabshi said the man was a prosperous trader and already married to two women while the girl's parents were impoverished rubber farmers.
    Muslim men are allowed to take up to four wives in Malaysia.

    Its a different culture, they may not share your morals or values.

    You weren't elected to dictate how every nation on the earth should live.

    Or did I miss that memo?

    Its their society so where do we draw the line?

    Should we dictate everything they do according to our standards?

    You can't do only a little, once you decide to change a whole society you have to change it all according to how you think people should live.

    That's definitely a problem but its one they, as a society, needs to deal with on their own.

    How would you like if they all of a sudden got power and decided they wanted to change our rules so our men hit the women?

    Societies won't grow and mature if they are being told what to do.

    American wouldn't be what we are if we hadn't experienced the horrors of slavery. We learned from it and became better because we understand how terrible it was.

    Sometimes you need to let the child touch the stove, just get the bandages ready for when they get burnt.

    Actually, the parents were impoverished. Does Thailand have any social safety net?

    No... we didn’t learn from slavery, becuase we had segregation. We did learn that you have to protest. We certainly didn’t learn from Nazi history...starting with a leader using “us” and “them”

    So that justifies donating their daughter to a pedophile?

    My parents were poor when they had me. They ate hot dogs or macaroni and cheese every night for two years. I'm glad they didn't abort or sell me.

    You could raise up a large band of several thousand jungle-fighting experienced mercenaries and go make them stop, or die trying.

    In the USA some Christian clergymen raping little boys in church basements is and has been quite the norm for a great many decades. Unfortunately, many Americans feel compelled to complain what goes on overseas but are quite comfortable with ignoring what goes on domestically.

    The old story about about those from glass houses ...

    conditions for females are infinitely worse in Hindu India:

    this problem persists to this day:

    We should try to stop ALL violence. But we need to begin at home rather than be selective by always pointing the finger at Muslims and ignoring all the other violence which often is far worse in other parts of the world.

    Why not, after all the (false) prophet married a 6 year old and banged her at the age of 9.

    And what about the child's rights ? Every country should have an interest in violations of childrens rights to a childhood without forced sex and domination.
    This is outrageous and any decent adult should be appalled that this young girl is forced to marry a dirty old man. Shame on you!

    This is the type of thinking that brought us Iraq.

    These people are different, their culture is different .... FULL STOP.

    Trying to tell them they are wrong or even worse, taking action to tell them they are wrong will do nothing but create enemies.

    We need to understand that different cultures are different, again .... FULL STOP

    Meanwhile, dozens of nations around the world are saying the same thing about you and your "Western Morals" that are harming children in Western Societies.

    "This is outrageous and any decent adult should be appalled that those young children are forced to go against God's will and take part in dirty western morals. Shame on you!"

    This is why SJW moral shaming is ridiculously stupid and rightfully being called out on.

    Cultures are different, for you to try to claim cultural superiority on them is laughable at best. Get over it and stop trying to claim you are some morally superior being that should be idolized, you sound like a Fascist that is demanding people agree with you, or else they should be shouted down and "shamed".

    I don't like it and you obviously don't either, but this moral superiority stuff is a losing battle in today's politics.

    Social Justice politics are dead, I look forward to what is coming next as Liberals and Conservatives have a great opportunity to discuss and define what both sides believe.

    Aisha was born before the Call so she was 17-19 or older when she married.

    We prosecuted the priests. No one here was comfortable with what they did.

    How would you feel if they tried to tell us how we should live and conduct ourselves?? It's their society, let them live it as they see fit. If enough of them want change, then it'll happen on their terms. I just don't think we should be sticking out nose into their affairs.

    True, some have been prosecuted with many churches bankrupted over these evils. But while church parishioners have had their money given away to such victims, clergymen are still being charged with sexual assaults on children because the problem never went away. The problem is the social tolerance of such evils in this professing Christian society which persist on pointing the finger towards others overseas while ignoring what goes on domestically.

    And making teenagers give birth to children is something the US Christians got on their agenda. In or outside wedlock.
