原文标题：Saudi teen hides on wedding night to avoid 90-year-old 'husband'
LONDON: A 90-year-old Saudi Arabian is suing his 15-year-old child-bride's family because she hid herself in the bedroom on their wedding night.
The terrified teen locked the door from the inside so that her new husband could not enter on their first night as a married couple. Two days later she fled back to her parents' home, Daily Mail reported.
The elderly man now wants his money back as he claims he paid the parents 10,767 pounds (about $17,500) for the teenager for the marriage.
According to Al Arabiya TV channel, the man said he paid the dowry to the young girl's Saudi mother and Yemeni father, making the marriage "legal and correct".
The 15-year-old's arranged marriage sparked outrage and widespread condemnation in Saudi Arabia where activists took to Twitter calling it child trafficking and prostitution.
A member of the Saudi National Association for Human Rights (NSHR), Suhaila Zein el-Abedin urged authorities to "save this child from tragedy", adding that marriage in Islam must be based on mutual consent.
She also blamed the girls parents for accepting the dowry and marrying off their daughter to such an old man, underlining the importance of establishing a minimum age of 18 for marriage in Saudi Arabia.
沙特国家人全协会(NSHR)的一名成员Suhaila Zein el-Abedin督促当局“将这名孩子从悲剧中拯救出来”，并补充说伊斯兰的婚姻必须建立在双方同意的基础上。

Islam is not to be blamed for this. Don't blame Islam for the acts of few so called muslims. In Islam a bride is first asked whether she accepts the marriage if she says yes then groom is asked. If she refuses then there cannot be marriage. Such traficking is also done by Hindus in Haryana. Does that mean that we should blame Hinduism? As per a report every 3rd house in Haryana has bought a girl through Human Traficking.

Difference is that vast majority of hindus condemn such practices, vast majority of muslims accept and want such practices. Vast majority of muslims want sharia law where 4 women's testimony in court is counted as equivalent of one man. Vast majority of muslims want man to be able to dump his wife by simply uttering three words and then not pay any money to support her. Vast majority of muslims don't educate their daughters and treat them like breeding cows. Vast majority of muslims don't allow their wife to drive. Vast majority of muslims are basically slave owners, who treat the female members of their family like slaves.

90-15=75,........I wonder what was the girl scared for, she should have killed the old as* and claimed that he died of heart attack. She would have been the owner of all his wealth,.....or some part of his wealth.

This girl was not aware of the benefits of marrying a 90 year old man. Even if she had slept with him, she would have remained a virgin. Further this man would have died within a year or two, leaving her lot of wealth and her virginity intact.

This is one of the 1000's of girls who get married at a very tender age, the Saudis are very well known in going to Pakistan and buying women, who are then made slaves.

A Saudi royal travelling in Air India flight to New Delhi saw an air hostess and asks his henchman to get her for him, to which he replies she is property of Air India so he cannot do. Buy Air India asks the prince angrily. I cant, henchman answers back very politely saying, Air India is property of Ministry of civil aviation. Go and buy that bla blah ministry, royal fires back, to which henchman again pleads his inability to do the needful saying ministry of civil aviation is property of Govt of India .

She is 15 means she must have received her first period which in turn makes her old enough to get married. Quran says so and thats the word of allah himself. Even a 90 years old muslim man would be potent enough to consummate the marriage. You impotent, cowards and skeleton looking hindoos are no match to a muslim man's power. Thats why all your bollywood heroines marry muslim men since only muslim men are strong, powerful, you hindoos are not. You may hate us for that but you cant deny the fact that even hindoo women like mardana muslim men.
