Ms. Magazine Runs Mock Cover Highlighting Child Brides in Islam

Women and children in Islam

In what could only be called a pig-flying moment (no halal pun intended), Ms. Magazine has published a mock magazine cover featuring “child brides.” And while it doesn’t specifically say Islam, it screams it — from the hijab to the references to Yemen ( an Islamic country) and acid attacks (notoriously Islamic).

So many Muslim countries under the sharia allow child marriage, in accordance with  Muhammad’s preferences for child brides.

Just last week, women in Iraq protested new sharia legislation approved by the Iraqi cabinet that would permit the marriage of nine-year-old girls (the age Muhammad consummated his marriage with his favorite wife, Aisha)  and automatically give child custody to fathers.

And while it wasn’t Ms. Magazine’s idea, they were picking up the post from a crowdfunder site, they did run it, and for a sharia-compliant media, that is something.
