Suara.com – The Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture (Menko PMK) Muhadjir Effendy also commented on the promotion of child marriage being spread by wedding organizer Aisha Weddings. He strongly criticized the existence of marriages involving children.
Muhadjir admitted that he was angry with Aisha Weddings’ promotion through social media and posted banners in a number of regions in Indonesia.
“Not only the government, but the general public are also restless because of the propaganda carried out by Aisha Weddings,” said Muhadjir in his statement, Saturday (13/2/2021).
According to Muhadjir, the promotion of Aisha Weddings was inappropriate, especially in the midst of the concerned condition of the Indonesian people who are facing the Covid-19 pandemic. Currently the Indonesian people are focusing on protecting themselves from the spread of the virus.
Moreover, Muhadjir assessed that getting married at a young age is in fact contrary to the purpose of the marriage law itself, which is to bring benefit and goodness to married couples.
Muhadjir further emphasized that getting married at a young age would certainly bring danger and disaster to the child itself and the future of the nation’s future generations. Biologically and psychologically, the children are not ready for marriage.
In addition, the purpose of marriage in Islam is to create a sakinah family and in order to obtain offspring (hifzh al-nasl).
That, too, can only be achieved at an age where the prospective bride and groom have perfect minds and are ready to carry out the reproductive process.
“Child marriage has the potential to produce unhealthy babies because children under the age of 18 are not physically ready to give birth,” said Muhadjir.
Moreover, mother is the first school for children. Therefore, a woman who is getting married must be aware of her duties and responsibilities in providing a good education for her children.
