Age issue….is it or just a non-issue. Or is it only a “dimaghi futoor” of Pakistani people. No wonder we are ruled by the ignorant.
First there are men and women who who always LIE about their age, it’s just like they were born yesterday. And they do pretend it by showing “LACK OF INTEREST AND LACK OF KNOWLEDGE” in everything. It really makes me laugh at these fools when they don’t know where are places like Empress Market, Chawla Market, Surjani Town, Khuda ki Basti, Karachi Zoo or even Quaid-e-Azam’s tomb situated. Permanent residents of Karachi don’t even know if there exists an aquarium on any of our beaches. I mean, you are born in Karachi, spent 40, 50, 60 years of your life here and you don’t know about specific areas of famous places or markets. That is because Karachi is not the part of our curriculum. Lairs are all the leading political and religious parties of Karachi who claim ownership to this city.
Then there come illiterates of two kinds, who make this an issue of honor and dignity. First category demands to add a title/s to their name to show your respect. Majority of them belong to religious sector or our middle-class respectable, who think that they were “something valuable” prior to 1947. Second category adds a title that shows a blood-relation to your name to show their respect to you. They usually do that to show that they were born after you and so you have to excuse them for their ignorance in anything. And I hate both of them.
Next, Pakistan is suffering more due to this EDUCATED CLASS who raises age issue to show their cause and love to humanity while on the other side, intentionally or unintentionally, use it to denounce Islamic laws and famous Muslim personalities especially Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Most of them belong to NGOs in Pakistan, the best preacher of Western-hatred toward Islam.
What’s wrong with Hazrat Ayesha marrying the Prophet (peace be upon him) at the age of 9 or 12? Prophet didn’t endorse it as the rule of Shari’ah.
Isn’t it better to marry a girl and provide her a shelter at this age than to rape her at the age of 3, 4, or 5 or get her pregnant at the age of 12 or 13 with an insecurity of not owning the child by the father? What sounds more pure and just….a city full of female prostitutes and sex-addict males or a society run by people of sacred bonding, father, mother, brother, sister, daughter, son, husband, wife etc….????
Age doesn’t matter. It’s good training and proper education that makes a difference. Find ways to break boundaries set by religion in order to fulfill individual desires never leads to anything but injustice, disrespect, chaos and miseries.
