10-year-old girl forced to marry father’s friend

A 10-year-old girl in Pasir Mas, Kelantan, was allegedly forced to marry her father’s friend, who is in his 30s, reported Harian Metro on its front page.

The nikah koboi (illegal marriage solemnisation ceremony) was appa­rently carried out in a car by the girl’s father who acted as wali (the guardian) and jurunikah (marriage registrar) without the presence of the bride and a witness on Feb 22.

The incident was related by the girl’s mother who wished to be known as Na, 33, to the daily after being informed by the girl, who was brought to a hotel after the ceremony.

However, the girl, who found out about the ceremony, excused herself and slept with a sweeper at the hotel before being sent home the following day.

According to the daily, Na’s husband had married off his daughter to his friend whom he met at the mosque for prayers.

Na lodged reports at the Pasir Mas police station on Feb 25 and at the Kelantan Islamic Religious Affairs Department following advice from her family.

Following that, her daughter was issued a mufarakah (live separately from her husband) order by the Kota Baru Syariah Lower Court last week.

> Kosmo! highlighted a report of Ahmad Nabil Ahmad, winner of Raja Lawak 2, denying talks that he was caught for khalwat (close proximity) with his girlfriend and local actress Irma Hasmie.

The comedian, who is facing a RM2mil legal suit by SDAF Pictures for trashing Lu Pikirlah Sendiri De Movie produced by the film company, quashed the controversy by saying that he would not do anything to put himself and his family to shame.

Nabil, however, admitted that he always visits Irma’s home to send food or to pick her up for dates. He claimed that at times, after sending food, he would perform his prayers at the surau near Irma’s house.
