    This one of the most disgusting news i read
    Daughter's pregnancy signs raised suspicion-India-The Times of India
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    JALPAIGURI: A 36-year-old man who married his teenage daughter, apparently after convincing his wife that he was carrying out divine instructions, kept the event under wraps for more than six months. Until, his 15-year-old daughter began showing signs of pregnancy.

    Villagers of Kasiajhora found out about Afazuddin Ali's wedding when one of them found the girl showing pregnancy's swelling signs.

    The sordid drama of what happened, however, unfolded on Monday when Ali was produced in court. When Ali, a daily labourer who has three daughters and two sons moved to marry his eldest girl child, his wife naturally was aghast and protested madly. To placate Sakina, he told her he was only carrying out Allah's instructions and the family would be rewarded. The poor, illiterate woman saw no reason to doubt her husband's heinous act.

    "He is a religious person and will never lie taking Allah's name," she said on Monday. It still wasn't clear whether the 'wedding' was conducted by a qazi who had been paid off. The family had kept the unholy wedlock under wraps until the girl's pregnancy became obvious.

    They tried to prevent her from leaving home during the day, but after all she was just another 15 year old. A few days back, a village woman saw her and the news spread like wildfire. Soon there were mobs knocking on Ali's doors.
    On Sunday, when Ali was finally confronted, he confessed. But cops arrived just in time to avoid the mobs unleashing their fury on him.

    Ali, who looked nervous when police brought him to the court, was seen strutting around after being released. "I haven't done anything wrong. Isn't it clear from the judgment?" he said. Yet, he decided it wouldn't be prudent to return to his village.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
