16-Year-Old Muslim Girl Married Off To A 65-Year-Old Arab Man For Money

Updated on 28 August, 2017 at 7:21 pm By

A 16-year-old Muslim girl has been married off to a 65-year-old Arab man for Rs. 5 lakh in Hyderabad.

The elderly man from Oman paid Rs. 5 lakh to get married to a minor girl in Hyderabad. The girl’s parents have now approached the police alleging that the girl was fraudulently married to the sexagenarian Omani national. The teen girls parents have also approached the city’s commissioner to help them get the girl back from Muscat, where she currently resides after her marriage.

The girl’s mother, Unnisa, in her complaint mentioned that her sister-in-law, Ghousia and her husband, Sikander, fudged the documents with the help of a Qazi. They then performed the marriage of her daughter to the Omani national at a hotel in Barkas area of the city before Ramzan. According to the complaint, the girl’s parents did not have any knowledge of this event. Unnisa also said that the Omani national paid Rs. 5 lakh to Ghousia and Sikander for this unethical contractual arrangement and marriage.

This is not the first incident that has taken place in the city. The city has maintained a close relationship with Arab nations and also shares a rich cultural past. It is quite common for Arabs to visit the city to “marry” young, virgin girls for a price ranging from Rs. 10,000 to several lakh. Not only this, several maulvis also charge anywhere between Rs 20,000 and Rs 1.5 lakh to participate in nikah halala, a practice that requires Muslim women to marry someone else, sleep with the man, get a divorce again in order to marry the first husband.
