  1. We are the living race with different cultures, people should learn to respect the culture of other even if they think it's not a good culture due to their culture.
    In Muslim culture it's Okey marrying a girl at the age of baalegh which is between 9 yrs to 14 yrs.
    In the western uncivilized culture they hold that marrying a girl under 18 is a child marriage, for them it's Okey for these girls to commit adultery and it's Okey if they get pregnant out of marriage than in the marriage - this act of refusing human rights to the girls by marrying them when their bodies needs it is a crime but no one sees it.
    What makes the people see that the girl has been sold? Is it because the man is an African-nigerian? If a an Indian old man marries a girl, will the response bee the same? THIS IS RACISM ON MY OPINION.
