Image via WikipediaForced marriages of minor Muslim girls reported in NZ...
A documentary program on New Zealand television dealt with under age teenaged Muslim girls being forced into illegal marriages with older men in New Zealand..
One girl has gone into hiding after being raped and forced by her despicable parents to "marry"the man.
Marriage is illegal under the age of 16 years in this country. Young people under 18 years need parental consent. The program dealt with cases of a 14 year old and a 15 year old forced to marry men by their parents. These people are Muslim refugees who are thumbing their noses at New Zealand law. New Zealand has generously given refuge to families from war-torn countries in southern Asia, the middle east and Africa. This is how they show their gratitude.
These people obviously consider NZ to be a soft touch. Mosque leaders deny any knowledge of these so-called marriages, but the various communities obviously know all about them. But they are obviously happening. Some girls are forced to go overseas to have a couple of children by their 'husbands'' to make them accept their situations.
The NZ Minister of Immigration denies there are the numbers to make any enquiries necessary about these so-called marriages. The British government which has concerns about forced marriages of children there, will make it a criminal offence to be a party to these marriages
