"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

On Child Marriage in Malaysia and Islam

Ayee Mazlan:

""Here’s the thing.

Either you accept the 11y/o marriage as “sunnah”, or you don’t accept it because it is wrong.

However, if you do accept it as “sunnah”, but argue “the practice is no longer relevant in this modern age”, you are basically using the same argument as any anti-hudud proponent.

If you reject the “sunnah” and say it has been wrongly interpreted, you are basically using the same argument as any anti-hadith (or some say quranist) proponents.

Needless to say, if you support the pedo, you are no better than ISIS. Blindly following “sunnah” even though it harms the society.

So for a muslim, this issue is really a catch-22 scenario; you either are anti-hudud, anti-hadith, or pro-ISIS.

That’s the reason why most (if not all) Islamic authorities in Malaysia chose to stay silent on this issue. Paling kuat pun siasat je.

Diluah mati emak, ditelan mati bapak, dikemam matilanak."
