Does Islam Perpetuate Child Abuse

16 Sep

CAWM would like to remain indepdent. However, the following comment from Anonymous is quite inaccurate and does not reflect the faith of Islam nor of its Prophet Muhammadh (PBUH).

“Islam is perpetuating a large amount of child abuse because Mohammed is the perfect man in the eyes of muslims. He “married” babies and commited child abuse.” Anonymous

Child abuse knows no legal, social or religous boundaries. It is unfortunate that some single out Islam as the culprit (which it is not) in child abuse. It is the conditions that promote child abuse, not any particular religion or faith:

Artcile on Child Abuse in America
Child Abuse statistics USA
Bush reward Child Abuse

The USA is the world’s top democracy. There is no one that can challenge the rights that are accorded to any human in the USA. Yet Abu Ghraib is a reality and Guntanemo Bay is a reality for which the Bush Administration only knows the justifications. We cannot or need not blame the US forefathers for the wrongs that are committed by individuals.

    well, i know every muslim will do what ever he/she can to defend islam and the prophet.but the problem here is …maybe mohamed didnt do it.or maybe it is somehow justified.maybe he is a special case…maybe it is a spiritual bond. but what i fear is, with the growth of islamic extremism at this rate in maldives…there would be more child abuse (in the name of islam)…yes, it had happened before also…and there was nothing maldivian government could do about it, because it is legal in ‘shariah’.that is one reason for the separation of the state and religion!and about America.. yeah i agree it has got worse problems than we’ve got.but do they come to maldives looking for children? NO! that makes us more concerned about islam than america.Im not accusing Prophet Mohamed of anything.You can justify it anyway you want. but the point is this should not happen in Maldives now!
