The case of the Imam who married an asylum seeker from Myanmar and fourteen year old girl has been re-opened for another publicly bleeding. Back in February 2017 it was alleged Noble Park Imam, Ibrahim Omerdic presided over a marriage in September 2016, between a thirty year old man and a fourteen year old minor. (The Age).

In April 2017 the sacked Imam was found guilty.

Side Note, but still important…

The ABC reports seem ‘confused’, as firstly the man’s identity is “suppressed” , yet in the same paragraph the ABC report has a link to another article which clearly names the man.

Aside from some of the routine inconsistencies which one has come to expect with fake news is the fact that this type of event is most likely being perpetrated across the country. It is more a matter of this only coming to the authorities attention through a balance of probabilities and luck than the reporting of such practices as people fear that if they speak out they will be villified as racist or “Islamaphobes“…(what ever that means)

The fact that this is a cultural practice and something which possibly is not raised to the public’s attention defines the shifting polarities of a societies values and laws.
