A Muslim U.S. judge ruling that a Muslim man can marry a 9-year-old girl in Montana is fake news.A Muslim judge in Montana did not approve the marriage of a 9-year-old girl to a Muslim man. There is no truth to a report that a Muslim judge allowed a Muslim man to marry a young girl in Montana.
Where did this fake news originate? Freedom Junkshun published the fake news article reporting that a Muslim judge in Montana approved the marriage of a 9-year-old girl to a Muslim man.
There’s a reason the United states didn’t allow Muslim judges until liberals flipped out and demanded “equal treatment” for people of all religions, even if that religion tells them to hate us. Citizens in Montana were shocked to get a perfect example of why there aren’t that many Muslim judges and why there were none until very recently.
The “Honorable” Rahid Musad, a judge in the 19th Circuit Court, heard a horrifying case on Monday. A Muslim man who came to the United States from Iran wanted to get married and felt he was oppressed because he wasn’t allowed.
Why wasn’t he allowed? Well, for starters his “fiancee” is nine years old.
Malik Malam entered the United States in 2005 on a work visa and was granted citizenship in 2012. Then he fell in “love” with the daughter of his neighbor, Sherry Smithers.
As Smithers and Malam became friends, he spent a lot of time converting her to Islam, which teaches that marrying (and everything associated with marriage) was not only acceptable, but was the will of Allah. Ultimately, Smithers agreed to marry her daughter off to this slimeball. But when they filled out the paperwork for the “wedding,” they were told that this was not allowed in the United States.
Undeterred, Smithers and Malam filed a lawsuit demanding that the “marriage” be allowed as a protected action under the First Amendment freedom of religion. They lost, but appealed and found themselves standing before Judge Musad, who agreed with these sick people that child marriage is a protected religious activity under Islam.
However, there is no truth to the story, according to Fact Check. Montana law sets the minimum age for marriage at 16 years old with judicial approval and 18 without it. Most states set the minimum age at 18 with exceptions for those between the ages of 16 and 18, according to a recent survey from the National Conference of State Legislatures comparing the marriage laws in all 50 states.
While the above story says that a judge named Rahid Musad, of the 19th Circuit Court, handled the case, Montana state courts are referred to as district courts, not circuit courts, and the 19th Judicial District, has no such judge. Federal appeals courts are referred to as circuit courts, but Montana is in the 9th Circuit, not the 19th. And that court does not have a judge by that name, either.
Additionally, the picture used in the fake news article is actually of Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Halim Dhanidina, who is the first Muslim judge in California, according to a UCLA description.
The other photo that ran with the story shows a gray-haired man with a 12-year-old girl in a wedding dress. But it was staged. The couple are actors, and the photo was taken in 2015 by an organization called KAFA that advocates women’s rights in Lebanon. The photograph was part of a public relations campaign to bring attention to the issue of child marriage.
Here are some examples of people sharing the fake news on social media.
