18 Imams have been caught agreeing to marry off girls as young as 14!
Undercover reporters, posing as the mother and brother of a 14 year old, visited 56 mosques across Britain and asked clerics to perform an Islamic marriage ceremony, and 18 Imams agreed!
The preacher was prepared to arrange the marriage despite being told that the ‘bride’ was being forced to move in with a man against her wishes.
The revelations will raise questions about how prevalent underage marriage is in Britain.
Marriages can only be officially registered if both parties are over 16.
Assistant Secretary-General of the Muslim Council of Britain, Shaykh Ibrahim Mogra, with Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, blasted the schemes. He said: "In this country, it is illegal, it is forbidden and no imam should be allowed to conduct the marriage of an underage child."
