In the Footsteps of the Prophet, Australian Muslim Marries a Child — and Pays the Price For It

For some reason, the perpetrator’s identity is being kept secret. But let’s call him Mr. Mo, in recognition of the self-proclaimed prophet who, just like Mr. Mo, was a passionate pedophile.

From the Sydney Morning Herald:

A Lebanese man [residing in Australia] was “determined” to marry a 12-year-old girl he saw in a mosque, despite being told it was illegal.

Mr. Mo succeeded in marrying the preteen girl and consummating the relationship, after he

… embarked on a “determined and deliberate pursuit of the girl” and with the help of one of her relatives, organized for a ceremony to take place at a private home on January 12, 2014.

But how could he have found anyone in modern, secular Australia to perform the wedding? Easy: he asked some Oz-based representatives of the Almighty for help. After the imams of one mosque told Mr. Mo that wedlock with his underage beloved was illegal, Allah the Most Merciful hooked him up with Sheikh Muhammad Tasawar,

… an Iranian cleric based at a different mosque, [who] agreed to “marry” the couple.

In the post-wedding throes of sweaty passion, Mr. Mo promptly got his “wife” pregnant. She miscarried.

The 27-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was sentenced to a maximum 10 years’ jail in the Downing Centre District Court on Friday, after pleading guilty to the persistent sexual abuse of a child.

Earlier,

Tasawar, 35, pleaded guilty to the offence of solemnization of a marriage by an unauthorized person. He was fined $500 and his religious-leader visa was cancelled.

I have no idea what court action, if any, was taken against the girl’s pimps parents.

Mr. Mo will be eligible for parole in six and a half years. The Australian government is likely to deport him when he gets out, meaning that Mr. Mo can then try his luck with barely pubescent girls in a country where the authorities aren’t such sticklers about child rape.
