Kuala Lumpur , 6 April 2017 (MyTimes) – Wanita MIC demands Tasek Gelugor MP Shabudin Yahya resigns from his seat over his ridiculous remarks, that there was nothing wrong with a girl getting married to her rapist and that it would be good for the girl as she would otherwise face a bleak future
“We are incensed over his remark and he should stop blaming the media for quoting out of context. His remarks are like giving a greenlight to pedophile to rape childrens.
It’s not a solution to force children who is underage to get married. Instead, Tasek Gelugor MP should have called for an outright ban on child marriage”, blasted Dato Mohana Muniandy.
“The marriage supposed to be a lasting union of both. How can a rape victim endure living with a beast who dishonours her against her will? Practicality and logic dictates that she should be provided psychiatric treatment from trauma and given justice by court sending the culprit to the gallows”, she continued.
The Women Chief stressed that child marriages under the age of 16 should be banned indefinitely and children must be protected at all costs. She also call for authorities who are in support of child marriages must be reprimanded or relieved of their positions.
The Wing chief hopes that the government will ban child marriages and call for severe punishment for rapist and not be rewarded with marriage to the underaged victim.
