“I consider God’s law and that of his prophet above any other law”
Nigeria’s Senator Ahmad Sani Yerima assures us that he has done nothing wrong. What a relief.
Ahmad Sani Yerima, 49, told the BBC that his fourth wife was not 13, but would not say how old she was.
He denied breaking the law but said he would not respect any law that contradicted his religious beliefs.
Ah good; how noble, how pious, how devout, how holy. If any pesky law contradicts his “religious belief” that he is allowed to fuck a girl who is too young to give her life away and too small through the pelvis to bear a child safely, why then he will bravely and nobly ignore that law in favour of the “religious belief” that lets men of 49 fuck girls of 13.
The Nigerian senate ordered an investigation after complaints from women’s groups but the senator said he did not care what the groups thought.
Mr Sani was the governor of Zamfara state, where he oversaw the introduction of Sharia law – for the first time in a northern state – in 1999.
Well, that’s the kind of guy who doesn’t care what women’s groups think all right.
The senator said he had followed “standard rules for marriage in Islam”.
“I don’t care about the issue of age since I have not violated any rule as far as Islam is concerned,” he said.
“History tells us that Prophet Muhammad did marry a young girl as well. Therefore I have not contravened any law. Even if she is 13, as it is being falsely peddled around.
“If I state the age, they will still use it to smear Islam,” he said.
Thus revealing that the age is still much too low to be marrying a brutal callous goat of 49.
But, much more, also revealing that most of the point of all this “introduction of Sharia” crap is to strip women of rights and enable men to fuck more and younger women as well as getting rid of the older ones they don’t want to fuck any more. Also revealing that this selfish greedy moron thinks that the fact that Mohammed married a child makes it perfectly all right for him to marry a child and that his doing so is a way of standing up for Islam.
The women’s groups want Mr Sani to be taken to court, to face a fine and a jail sentence.
They say he has contravened the Child Rights Act of 2003 which, although not ratified by all Nigeria’s 36 states, is law in the capital where he lives and his marriage is believed to have taken place.
“As a Muslim, as I always say, I consider God’s law and that of his prophet above any other law,” Mr Sani said.
“I will not respect any law that contradicts that and whoever wants to sanction me for that is free to do that.”
That’s exactly why the very idea of “God’s law” is so dangerous.
