Violence against women is a global issue and takes many forms. Not only does it manifest itself in the most apparent form — physical abuse — but the term includes sexual abuse, rape, trafficking/forced prostitution, honour killings, acid-throwing, harassment, emotional and psychological abuse, verbal and economic abuse.

To most in Pakistan, Western values are embodied not so much in brave schoolgirls but the repressive Muslim regimes supported by London and Washington as long as they are on the ‘right’ side of the political divide. If a public execution or amputation happens in Saudi Arabia, its ‘domestic law enforcement.’ If it happens in Iran or Syria, it’s an atrocity. This is about right to life, not just education.

When we take all this evidence into consideration, we are bound to reject the statement that ‘A’ishah was as young as nine at the time of her marriage to the Prophet. We say that most probably she was around 20; perhaps one or two years younger or older.
