Muslim receives marriage certificate after he weds 11-year-old in Thailand

Man who married girl, 11, has violated Thai laws, should be extradited, says child rights expert

A MARRIAGE certificate has recently been issued to the man who married an 11-year-old girl in Narathiwat, Thailand, reported Harian Metro.

This was confirmed by Hashim Yusof, the kadi who solemnised the marriage between the 41-year-old man and his child bride.

Hisham also explained to the man that he should register their marriage in Malaysia.

The marriage, which took place on June 18, went viral due to the bride’s tender age.

The paper also reported that Thailand’s Home Ministry had summoned the Narathiwat religious council for an explanation.

“It is understood that the ministry was satisfied with the explanation and their decision to call the officials was because the issue went viral on social media,” it said.
