The Muslim Women’s Association expresses their deep concern about the recent media reports that a 26 year old student has come before the courts this week on charges relating to having sexual intercourse with a minor.


The Muslim Women’s Association as a peak body representing Muslim women in NSW would like to unequivocally state its position on this issue: ‘There is no religious leader, Imam or scholar in Australia that we work with that would conduct an Islamic wedding ceremony that involved an underage child. In fact Islam condemns any action that involves breaking the law of the country that one lives in', said Ms Maha Abdo, Executive Officer of the Muslim Women's Association.
