716 new under 10 brides in Iran

by Fred

Officially sanctioned child-bride is increasingly becoming a sad fact of life in Iran.

A translation of Hamshari online statistic by Siavosh Jalili for Persian2English states:

“Farshid Yazdani, a member of the Association for the Defense of Children’s Rights, has raised the flag on the increasing rate of the marriage of girls under the age of 10 in Iran. He stated that in 2009, 449 girls under the age of 10 were married off. The number increased to 716 cases in 2011.”

Islamic supporters of child-brides justify it based on the historical fact of Prophet Mohammad while in his fifties marrying the 9 year old Ayesha.

However, in s report by Mehr Newa Agency, Mrs. Fathieh Ghanadi, the “academic and educational counselor” sees things somewhat differently.

The culprit according to this expert is none other than “mass media such as satellite” television programs, which have caused “Fading of religious teachings in some families weaken the religious beliefs of adolescents...”

Whatever the cause or justification, be it too much religion or not enough, the despicable practice of officially sanctioned under age little girls, some younger that 10, being legally married to men many times their age is an abominable practice and a national shame.

ps. previouse blog in Persian on this officially encouraged barbaric practice, here.

Islamic Republic, Islam In Government, who wants this??????

by amirparvizforsecularmonarchy on

The Answer, the USA, the Uk & France.

Why do they want Iran to be backwards, barbarically run, inhumanity, tyranny, corruption?

Why did they want this for Africa, For india?

For anyone so stupid as to betray the late shah, in the name of human rights and democracy.


So what was the late shahs governments leadership producing in reality if it was not peace, progress and human rights and creating the foundations for a democratic country with the institutions necessary gradually????  

Tabrik to all the fools that were used as patsys to create this.  And have never been listened to since, as the west loves extremism for iran. 

Yeah the west wants human rights and democracy for Iran, aha, need some swamp land in Florida, stupid countrymen and women (and I don't mean the Mullahs in Power) the mullahs are just criminals.

Israel must attack the Islamic Republic. All mullahs and their mosques must be destroyed using cluster bombs. All supporters of the Islamic Republic who wish to fight or support this regime are welcome to become collateral damage,



The Barbarians' Brides!

by Demo on

And how many of the under 10 brides were around in the Kings' private 'haram-saras' for the past 2466 (i.e. 2500-34=2466) years of our happy, happy!! history before our current sad, sad!! situation??? Needless to mention of 84+ wives of Naseredeen Shah as one recent example.

PS: Unlike our delicious 'Barbari Bread' our 'Barbaric Culture' is deadly toxic!
