this is totaly unacceptable and should not be tolerated by any country anywhere. A 9 year old girl is not social, psychologically, mentally or physically ready for Marriage.
This is only legalizing for dirty old men to rape little girls and this should be shunned and not tolerated anywhere, Men that do this kind of thing in a country like Australia or America are put to prison and are usually given a hard time by other prisoners as a rock spider, this new law of Iraq makes rock spiders legal by legislation.
In Newcastle NSW Australia a 26 year old student from Lebanon got Married by parents consent to a 12 year old girl - the NSW police arrested him, the courts annulled the marriage and the Imam who married them lost his marriage licence and was charged with marrying minors, in the same light the parents of the girl was charged and the Lebanese man deported.
