Children in Iraq could be legally married before the age of nine under sweeping legislation tabled on Tuesday that introduces new religious restrictions on women's rights.

As almost its last act before elections at the end of the month, the Iraqi parliament looks likely to pass new marital rules for its majority Shia community with a draft law criticised by human rights activists as "legalised inquality"

The legislation has been approved by the governing coalition in an effort to attract support from Shia Muslims in the April 30 vote.

Current Iraqi law sets the legal age for marriage at 18 without parental approval and states girls as young as 15 can be married only with a guardian's approval. It does not allow for special provisions according to sect.

But the legislation, known as the Jaafari law, introduces rules almost identical to those of neighbouring Iran, a Shia-dominated Islamic theocracy.


Ayad Allawi, a former Iraqi prime minister, warned on Tuesday that approval of the law would lead to the abuse of women. "It allows for girls to be married from nine years of age and even younger," he said. "There are other injustices [contained in it] too."

While there is no set minimum age for marriage, the section on divorce includes rules for divorces of girls who have reached the age of 9 years.

Marital rape is condoned by a clause that states women must comply with their husband's sexual demands. Men are given guardianship rights over women and the law also establishes rules governing polygamous relationships.

Hanaa Edwar, a well-known activist and head of the charity Al-Amal ("Hope" in Arabic), has campaigned against the law as a setback for women's rights in a country that has struggled since the 2003 invasion.

"It turns women into tools for sexual enjoyment," she said. "It deletes all their rights."

Human Rights Watch, the US-based organisation, has issued a plea for the Iraqi government to abandon the legislations.

"Iraq is in conflict and undergoing a breakdown of the rule of law," Basma al-Khateeb, a women's rights activist, said in a Human Rights Watch report. "The passage of the Jaafari law sets the ground for legalised inequality."

Supporters of the draft, named after a Shiite Muslim school of jurisprudence, say it simply regulates practices already existing in day-to-day life. Officials said there has been a surge in under 18s being married off since the overthrow of Saddam Hussein in 2003.

Mohammed is revered as the perfect human being and muslims follow whatever he did like growing a beard and in this case sexing with 9 year olds. That is why people shouldn't be getting their morals from ancient outdated religions.

Lol please, go do your research. Also, its the only religion that hasn't changed over time or altered and your saying that about 2 billion people who preach Islam are blind? Furthermore, he actually is the most perfect human being that set upon this world and this law won't even proceed. It's a 'maybe' and you can't call all the 2 billion people lunatics due to just a small number of them agreeing with this. Before you come to conclusions, I suggest you actually do your research and further develop your knowledge of Islam before you start dissing it.

As for the thread itself, is the decision being made by "Backward Muslim Lunatics"? NO! The article itself names three individuals who condemn this idea, are they also "Backward Muslim Lunatics"?

Please, do not attempt to attack and ridicule an entire religion based on the views of a minority that *may* implement rules that you don't agree with.

I have done my research, I have read the quran cover to cover several times and have been muslim for most of my life.

That is the fucking problem that people think that is perfect, him fucking a 9 year old makes people think that is an okay thing to do which it's not.

Also thanks for putting words in my mouth, I never said 2 billion people are blind or all muslims are lunatics. I said that certain people are using Mohammed's actions with Aisha as a proxy to have sex with children.

Quite amusing that your reply is only a profanity and you can't argue. And besides, I'm not going to bother anymore.
muslims all worship a pedophile so implicitly endorse paedophilia and by extension this law

its not a good idea to degrade another religion. Despite what religion you are; you should still respect other people's decisions and choices

but this is the internet; so whatever

Why should religions be beyond criticism, no one blinks an eye when a politician is criticised but everyone looses their shit with religion. If a religion is harmful to society it should be criticised.

Do you respect the religions of juche, aum shinrikyo, and heaven's gate?

Do you respect the decisions and choices of Robert Hughes, Rolf Harris, the prophet Mohammed, and Geoffrey Leonard?

Clearly it is a good and fair idea to deride, harass, and humiliate others for their beliefs often, especially in the case of bad religion.
