    we should think with humanity, what is difference between human and animal, 50 yrs of old father used her 23 yr of daughter for sex, 90 yrs man used 15yr old girl for sex, in this what is leagl, no laws against to sex do with anyone, no law can be punished, but its just a humanity yaaaar

    The Cleric, the Old man (Groom), the bride's parent have all considered this marriage to be “Legal and correct” or else they would not have gone ahead with the ceremony. However, it appears that only the girl was not in agreement right from the beginning, or she has a changed her mind at some time after the marriage.

    So here is the question:
    1. This case came into the open ONLY because the girl protested the ceremony, the rest of the 3 felt it is O.K. So on what basis did these three think it is Legal and correct?
    2.There are thousands and thousands of people marrying in certain countries and they are no breaking the law or else they would be arrested.
    3.How could this practice of a child marrying a man who is her possibly her father, grandfather or even great grandfather age be allowed and this age disparity most prevalent only in certain countries are being overlooked by the law?

    So the only logical answer to all of the above is for each and everyone to surf the net and soon you will all find out what the Cleric, the Groom and the Bride’s parents did was indeed Legal and accepted by the law.

    Hence, please do not ask for the old man to be punished as apparently he acted within the law and do not politicize this marriage as this has nothing to do with Indian politics.

    @ RAMEEZ BANGALORE.. Segregate what is dowry and what is Mehar.Yes,Mehar has no right other than bride.But I studied Bridegroom's DOWERY and in KSA/Arab countries it is ever biggest social problem prompting male individuals remained unmarried and those haves not looking for foreign brides.If you ave friends in Arab countries just ask them.Do not crib for the sake of comments.

    Problem with you is, when some points a issue with you, you turn that finger to others.
    As you told this man paid some amount, for your info(you may be knowing) Arab man pay heavy when they get married, thats why many of arab man are still single as they can not pay , what girl demands.
    Many UAE arab man comes to India to get married, you can see they get married to girl from Hyderabad , Kerala, Lucknow and all.

    They do it just because they do not have to pay more.

    What ever the money this 90yr old budda had given, i am sure it was that girl side demanded so he gave.

    what is your say on this, part now.
    and i agree that poojary is rapist and physco he do not know , how to respect the relation, and this is not limited to any religion, happens in all religion in India.

    Dear Mr. Sayed Kaleem, Udupi/Dubai

    Mr. Kota or Mr. Khota Mr. Old Man or 90 year old man both are womanizers who have lust and addicted for sex. A human has rationale mind and control of his senses. He should use his rationale mind and senses in a proper manner. Now Mr. Syed how many house maids/concubines in Saudi Arabia remained virgin if not married and if married how many have adulterous.
    Secondly, once a woman is divorced what they do at their Fathers house. The father goes in search of bride for the son and the father himself marries. This is the real fact. How and why a women should remain without enjoyment/sex for a period of three months after divorce. Why the punishment only for women.
    Thirdly, recently you might have seen in daijiworld Muslim community was protesting and condemning dowry/mehar. Aren’t they have gone against your book.

    40 percent of men and women in Saudi Arabia at the marriageable are unmarried due to dowry and divorce menace.

    Sarswathi Nayak is Right. I stand by my statement dowry and divorces are the evils of the society.

    Get your facts Mam. I am in Saudi Arabia, I never knew that much you being in Moodbidri. It's a isolated case. Media always highlights such tiny social issues particularly western where we all knew their life style. They believe in multiple divorce and multiple marriages. By the way may I know in what sense Polygamy you think evil in the society.

    Dear Sayed Kaleem, we all know Shankar poojary from Kota that you mentioned has committed a grave crime and he has to be punished for that. But, your way of justifying the act of 90 yr old Saudian by giving that example is very rubbish. It is funny to say bcse he spent big amount on her he is not a womanizer! A 95 yr old marrying 15yr old is not at all fair & just. It is as simple as that.

    Dear Joseph F. Gonsalves,

    F Y I this old man has payed USD 17,500.00 Mehar and married legally the girl, if he is a womanizer why he has to pay such a big amount and marry a girl he would have thrown little amount and got many women for him day and night but not he has done it legaly, one shankar poojary in Kota has raped his daughter for 11 months and his daughter gave birth to his daughter now this poojary is father to his daughters daughter, kindly let me know who is womanizer a 50 year old rapist of a daughter or a 90 year old who legally married a girl, Your comments please.

    You cannot read and write my name itself properly
    I quote yours: @ Joseph fernandes , bannur , puttur , mangalore.Unquote.
    How would you read, write and percieve the Holy Bible accurately?! Astonishing.

    Secondly, (in general not for a perticular person) the repercussions of man made rules of polygamy is biting the Islamic ruled countries I quote: ARAB NEWS 18TH August 2002 by M. Ghzaanfar ali khan Arab news staff
    TOP LAWYER WARNS AGAINST GROWING DIVORCE CASES
    ZAMIL SHABEB AL-RAKAD

    Riyadh a prominent Saudi lawyer has warned aginst the growing number of divorce cases in the kingdom, where more than 18,000 weddings ended in separation last year.
    The Saudi attorney quoted quranic verses to substantiate his arguments about divorce and family life in the kingdom, a total of 16,725 weddings out of 81,576 ended in divorce between March 2000-2001.This represent 20.5% of all marriages solemnized and finally broke up in Saudi Arabia indicating a threat to society. Pologmy, not economic factors, is responsible for 55% of divorces taking place in the country according to a report published recently.
    The above is not from my pocket.
    Those disagree above quote of the new paper should read the news paper which I quoted above.

    @Roshan Braganza, Mumbai,
    God of the bible cannot be partial.
    My reading of the bible says god punished polygamists.
    If in your view if god approved polygamy,
    why not approved polyandry in the bible.
    God is a just god not unjust.
    My opinion is polygamy is an evil in the society.
    We hindus have one husband one wife.
    New testament clears one husband one wife.

    @ ISMAIL.K.PERINJE - Dowry from bridegroom side is not called as dowry, and it is not a social problem.. people misuse this system as this old man did.its encouraged in Islam bridegroom giving valuable stuffs to girl's side as a gift.its belongs to her (only her)..even her father or would be husband don't have any rights to (prohibited)share so called "dowry" given to her..before you move your fingers to comment think twice and know the background.

    Anywhere it is not written the age of a man for marriage as long as a man is healthy he can marry provided the female partner agrees. Nothing wrong in it. He is marrying legally istnt? No matter age. The girl also lucky. After his death she will be the owner of all his assets. With soudi nationality. Congratulations budda. Live long. Our ancester abraham got his son @ the age of 90. This man also second coming of abraham i believe.
