Is it ‘culturally sensitive’ to let little girls be raped? Sweden seems to think so. And that’s just one of the crimes against Muslim migrant women and children rationalized that way. Cutting the genitalia of Muslim girl children is nothing less than mutilation, but Europeans defend it as “cultural sensitivity.”
Speisa In a move that can only ever go down in history as incredibly regressive, Sweden decided to approve underage “child marriage” among Muslim migrants.
A 14-year-old child bride from Syria came to Sweden and became pregnant with her husband, who is also her cousin. Now a Swedish court has approved of her marriage, because she appears “mature,” and for religious and cultural reasons. The girl was married off to a cousin when she was only 12 years old.
In Sweden, she has been placed with his aunt and her family. The social service authorities in Sweden thought her marriage is completely outrageous and took it to the justice system. But the judge does not think there is anything wrong with it, since she was brought up with another religious and cultural perception of what is right and wrong.
In addition, the girl, according to court, is precocious for her age and early matured, so the court does not see anything wrong.
This means that Sweden now approves of Sharia law. The court looks through the fingers with sexual relations concerning Muslim minors, and approves of the pregnancy in a child’s marriage where the girl is only 14 years old. This is a verdict that may set a precedent for further introduction of Sharia law in Sweden.
“It is difficult to interpret the verdict in another way. The girl is also described as a mature person with free will. Anyone who knows what honor culture is, is well aware of the powerlessness and pressure a minor married girl is exposed to. Why close your eyes to that she is underage?”
Lebanon (below) and other Muslim countries boast tens of thousands of child marriages every year. And the West appears to be catching up.
There was a time when European so-called “progressives” openly advocated civic intervention in the face of cultural and religious practices that violated individual liberties. They believed that society would progress if it adopted liberal, secular human rights values.
Not only have many Progressives ceased to defend liberal values, they have started to pro-actively defend regressive practices instead. Quite literally, “cultural sensitivity” has led many of then to justify the genital mutilation of very young Muslim girls in the name of chastity, in the name of multiculturalism.
