Maulana marries student younger to him by 31 years as second wife – UP

A 50-year-old Maulana teaching in a madrasa ‘fell in love’ with a 19-year-old high school student studying in his village in Pipraich area, Gorakhpur district, UP. When other villagers found out about this, they called a panchayat on Thursday where the 2 were ordered to get married.

The 50-year-old maulana’s father opposed this the maulana was already married and this new marriage would lead to issues in property division. So it was decided that the maulana will have to give half his property to his first wife and then only marry the student. The maulana agreed to this decision and married his young second wife that same night.

On Friday, Pipraich police learnt about this and arrived at the village to inquire. Both parties claimed that the marriage was done with their consent. As Muslim civil law (governed by sharia) permits up to 4 marriages for a Muslim man, police did not take any action.

In February, a Pakistani parliamentarian and Muslim cleric in his late 50s, Maulana Salahuddin Ayubi, married a 14-year-old girl.

In accordance with Sharia law (Muslim religious law), Pakistani courts have ruled that men can marry underage girls as long as they have had their first menstrual cycle. Not to be left behind, even courts in Bharat have ruled that Muslims girls can be married off once they attain puberty, and that in the absence of evidence, puberty is assumed on completion of the age of 15 years.
