Its time the MMDA is no longer part of the law of the land and should be replaced
with the same law for ALL citizens of Sri Lanka irrespective of their beliefs, and origins!
The BBC today is highlighting a frightening problem our Media in our own Country is reluctant to bring to the discussion table as one of the most serious practices of today, and which will have permanent harmful effects on our INNOCENTS! Namely the Muslim Marriages and Divorce Act. Shortened as MMDA for purposes of discussion.
Today’s BBC website: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-39898589
Lets get a grip on what is and is NOT child abuse first. There are NO different definitions of that depending on your religious beliefs as Mormons in the US were also engaging in such Child Abuse and their practices were also subject to the law of the land and NOT Mormon Law.
Lets be clear, this is NOT an attack on Islam, as it was never the intention of Islam that children should be subject to torture. It is the interpretation of this by either pedophiles in their community or zealots who have NO place in religion and the rest of the Community, the 99% of Muslims who abide in the law of the Land to accept that it is time that we all adhere to one Law and not different ones just because of some past precedent.
I implore the sane to read the article in full, and realize that what we have at the end of this is a male dominated culture, that is against the precepts of Islam and their teachings and are being interpreted in order to belittle, subjugate and enslave half of the believers in Islam that that what their merciful God has ordered, which IS NOT THE CASE.
It is up to the elders of the Community to immediately make peace with their community first in doing what is right and just and then agree to abide by the law of the land in Sri Lanka above any other law so that they being rightful and full citizens of Sri Lanka behave that way and are NOT treated as a special case as it is done today.
Please go to any police station and ask any policeman. They say that it is very difficult to deal with the Muslim people when complaints of this nature are made as the strictures imposed on Muslim Kids by the Community are barbaric to border on torture of the worst kind in allowing them certain freedoms afforded Children and their rights, and after that once they are Adult afforded to all adults in this Country as rightful citizens within the law.
THE ONLY WAY TO ENSURE THIS IS IF THE LAW IS EQUAL TO ALL WHO LIVE IN SL!
HAS ANYONE GOT A PROBLEM WITH THAT?
It is universal after all!
