    PAKISTAN POLICE RAID CHILD WEDDING - New York Post

    ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Police raided a wedding between a 7-year-old boy and a 5-year-old girl in Pakistan's largest city, arresting the Muslim cleric officiating at the ceremony and the children's parents, a senior officer said Friday.

    The cleric had not yet begun the ceremony in Karachi, which was attended by 100 guests, said deputy superintendent of police Malik Mazhar.

    Pakistan law forbids marriage below the age of 18, but some Muslim scholars say it is permissible if the bride and groom have reached puberty.

    TV footage showed both children in traditional wedding clothes in the laps of policemen after the raid, the girl with tears running down her cheeks.

    The parents said the wedding had been arranged to end an eight-year feud between the two families, according to a report on Express News TV.

    Mazhar said he had heard about similar cases in rural areas but "it is shocking to have this right in the center of the city."

    The parents would be brought before a court on Saturday, he said.

    A Pakistan Human Rights Commission official, Hina Gillani, said the maximum possible punishment for the parents was one month in jail and a fine of just over $10.

    Good grief, where's the disgust, the outrage, the hatred of the religion that could allow such a horrific thing to occur?

    Anyone remember the general hysteria and outcry over the fact that 18 year olds were getting married in the FLDS church and...gasp...having their babies instead of aborting them?

    Remember how Ravi was running around calling Christians child molesters?
