As you can see in the video below a senior Saudi cleric on TV defends the practice of child marriage in the Arab-Muslim world under Sharia law.
He says the founder of islam, mohammed, was 52 years old when he married Aisha. She was 6.
He waited until she reached the age of 9, before starting to have regular intercourse with her.
This is still a common practice in most parts of the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
An estimated 15 million girls under 18 are married each year. Girls who marry before they turn 18 are less likely to remain in school and more likely to experience domestic violence. Everything possible must be done to protect these vulnerable children.
Under Sharia law girls can marry at the age of 6, just like the Prophet Muhammad from the Koran did when he married Aisha. Muhammad consummated his marriage with Aisha when she was nine.
