Here is yet another article illustrating why it is not wise to let large numbers of devout Muslims immigrate to Canada as their most basic and fundamental values clash strongly with our Cdn values.
With some comments of my own in brackets):
Girls as young as 9 can marry, Turkish religious body's Islamic glossary suggests.
(And is it not rather creepy that even though Turkey is the most modern and progressive of Muslim nations- they can still produce this radical CRAP?)

ANKARA, Turkey — A suggestion by Turkey’s state religious affairs body that girls as young as nine could marry has sparked an outcry, including calls for an inquiry and the dismantling of the scandal-tainted organization.
(Turkey is a country dedicated to the separation of church and state- in a fairly western model but clearly radical Muslim forces are at work there- just as they are in all other western and middle eastern countries!)
Its online glossary of Islamic terms, which has since been removed, defined marriage as an institution that saves a person from adultery and said girls can marry when they reach puberty — as early as age nine, Turkish media reports said.
Our directorate has never in its history approved of child marriages and never will.
(But the Diyanet definition of “child” sounds rather close to pedophilia!)
Turkey’s main opposition party has called for an investigation into the Directorate of Religious Affairs, or Diyanet, accusing it of inciting underage marriages. Social media users joined a campaign demanding the closure of the body that oversees mosques and imams and has frequently courted controversy.
Diyanet vehemently denied approving underage marriages, saying that “our directorate has never in its history approved of child marriages and never will.”
Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag accused the media of manipulating definitions in the glossary to make the government look as though it supports child marriages. Bozdag added that it was the religious body’s duty to interpret terms according to Islamic laws, not civic laws.
The Diyanet previously caused fury for issuing an online fatwa, or religious ruling, suggesting that a father can lust after his daughter. That fatwa was quickly retracted. In other rulings, the Diyanet has said Muslims cannot marry non-Muslims and that engaged couples cannot be left alone or hold hands.
(One has to pity the poor moderate Muslims who have to live down the more ridiculous fatwas being issued by crackpots who seem to want deliberately to feed the most ugly of Muslim stereotypes! And one has to worry about Canada after a report a year back by 2 reporters who told us that the only voices at Cdn mosques and Muslim schools are radical ones- shouting down the moderates!)
The legal age for marriage in Turkey is 18. Women’s rights groups say underage marriage is widespread despite the laws and accuse authorities of not taking sufficient steps to protect girls from becoming “child brides.”
In 2016, the government scrapped a proposal that critics said would have allowed men accused of statutory rape to go free if they were married to their victims, following similar outrage.
(In some Muslim Sharia Law versions of woman’ rights, a woman who accuses a man of rape must provide FOUR MALE WITNESSES or else she will be charged with PERJURY! Some Muslims certainyl do have a more moderate view of womens issues but the great concern is that Our idiot Boy Justin is not doing nearly enough to weed out the crazy ones!)
