UNC senator: For God’s sake, let’s rape children! Live Wire corners Waffie on Quran

Islamic Council of Scholars official Dr Waffie Mohammed, who was sworn in as a temporary UNC senator, yesterday argued that Trinidad and Tobago should continue to permit the legal rape of minors—otherwise known as child marriages—because it was the ‘command of God’.

“Muslims believe that the marriageable age of a female begins at puberty that is what the Holy Quran says,” said Mohammed.

Waffie claims to be an authority on the subject of the Quran, as the holder of a PhD in Islamic Studies. But he did not offer any explanation as to why he is less zealous on the bit about raining brimstone on homosexuals.

All the same, the Princes Town MP is best advised to lie low when Waffie is in the building, lest his fabulous fashion sense causes the holy man to see red!

Is it worth mentioning that Waffle spoke at the invitation of UNC political leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar who, as Education Minister, famously outlawed corporal punishment in schools? Spare the rod, rape the child?

Sigh. Let’s turn our thoughts back to God.

The Quran, for the kafirs reading this article, is believed to have been written 1,385 years ago. And, as we know, public sentiment on a wide range of issues—from inter-racial marriages, homosexuality, abortions, global warming and seatbelts—evolve constantly according to time, information and culture.

Take the pick-up strategy: “Grab ‘em by the pussy.”

If you were a US presidential candidate, then that’s just good old fashioned values. But as a director at Massy Holdings or the Arthur Lok Jack Graduate School of Business? Not so much.

At least Dr Rolph Balgobin gave the opposite sex the chance to swap bookbags and sneakers for handbags and high heels before he cranked up the sleeze-o-meter though—and that really was the least he could do.

Waffie, a Hummingbird Medal (gold) recipient for community service, suggested that even Standard Five students should be fair game for grown men—statistics, provided by AG Faris Al-Rawi, show 3,478 child marriages occurred in Trinidad and Tobago over the past decade with girls as young as 11 married to men as old as 56.

Mr Live Wire has a hard time believing that was what God meant when he said “suffer the little children to come unto me.” But, if Mohammed insists, then it is only fair that we allow him the opportunity to go meet his Maker and return with confirmation.

And if Waffie comes back to Cabinet in a month’s time with his own death certificate and a sworn affidavit by Allah—signed in the company of two witnesses and checked for authenticity by a handwriting expert—it would be childish of us to not hear him out.

Until then, pardners, when any of your flock spies a cute 11 year old girl and wonders: What would God have me do? Ask yourselves a second question: What will the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) do with me?

And speaking of what the TTPS is up to, acting Commissioner of Police Stephen Williams sent shockwaves through the local police this week after he invoked a clause in the Police Service Act, which can force senior heads of department to retire for “poor performance.”

Wait… What?! Does that mean we are not third world anymore?! Somebody call Tom Saintfiet quick!

Senior Superintendent John Trim of the Eastern Division and Senior Superintendent Simbonath Rajkumar of the Inter Agency Task Force supposedly now have seven days to either get lost, or make representation as to why they “should not retire from the [TTPS] at the instance of the Commissioner of Police.”

If Williams’ plan works, can someone turn Trinidad and Tobago into a police state please! Oh god, you know what I mean by that.

Of course, God had as much to do with that last paragraph as he did with the legalised rape of 3,478 children over the past 10 years. But, if you doubt Mr Live Wire on that, there is only one way to be sure.

Go meet Him.

Otherwise, as a Trinidad and Tobago citizen, you best know and respect the constitution even more than those sacred books. Prison is hell.

Pinch yourself Trinidad. Babylon Boops is trying to drag the country towards righteousness and moral enlightenment while religious leaders are gazing at our children with criminal intent.

Lord put ah hand!

  1. Please you ppl…make a little sense…sometimes at least…this article??? Biggest load of ….pooooop…

  2. Trinidad is NOT an Islamic state – he can go to Saudi Arabia or somewhere like that where it’s OK.

  3. Let the goodly senator marry off his 11 yrs old daughter if he has one.

  4. really wired868 ? is that what he really said ?

  5. Call it religion, culture or habit a paedophile is just that, a paedophile. The definition – a sexual desire or want for young children, of any sex, punishable under the laws of TT.

  6. I can bet and guarantee that there’s overwhelming sexual abuse and harassment in the private and public sector. Our women are poor and many are struggling to work their way up to a job…but these men…these humans who have political power and control over our income truly believe they can railroad us…it is happening today and these guys appear as respectable family guys. We will catch up!

  7. “=-Is it worth mentioning that Waffle spoke at the invitation of UNC political leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar who, as Education Minister, famously outlawed corporal punishment in schools? Spare the rod, rape the child?”

    Brilliant stuff, nothing short of! But the reference does not make pellucidly clear (As the late PM PMM used to say) that the temporary senator – and he was only one of two – was given his appointment SPECIFICALLY to speak on this bill. Mr Live Wire, I think you let KPB off the hook by not pointing that out in a way that was unambiguous.

  8. And what does God have to do with that too? God ent come Trinidad since Brian Lara rest down his bat. 🙂

  9. I’m so disgusted that ppl can defend child marriage. ?

  10. oh lawd…the headline…anyway, these people need to get out of the dark ages….the ignorance that is so pervasive is frightening…what happened in the dark ages cannot happen any more…get over it and try and preserve some dignity in the process…the legal rape of minors cannot continue. Period.
    And fyi, the age of puberty varies with different children…so having a blanket age of 12 is ridiculous anyway….not that it matters for this particular circumstance because be they 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, or 17, they should not be wed…end of discussion. Why do we even have to listen to such ignorance?

    • Free country, my dead, a free country. You;’re free to talk any shit and get away with it.

      There are two important corollaries (1) You are free not to listen (2) You should feel compelled to rebut any shit – your synonym is “ignorance” – that you find intolerable. Failing that’ it’s the first speaker’s shit that will stand and carry the day.

  11. Imam Yasin Abu Bakr put it out there on Power 102 last yr and said he had been a marriage councilor for 27 yrs and a practising muslim and wanted anyone to show him where in the holy book says it is ok to marry off children.
    This was after Anisa Ahamed in her capacity of Prisident of the Muslim women’s organization said she supports child marriages.
    What frightens me most is the fact that she along with this recent individual are being elevated to the highest offices in the country. She was also acting President in the absence of Carmona.

  12. Their argument is also along the lines of reducing abortion because these young ladies can get married. Really? I wonder where they got that as many of the young ladies who get pregnant are not married before or after the birth of the child otherwise we would really have to allow polygamy but let me not go there as that will really send my Muslim brethren frothing at the mouth.

  13. That’s Y The Country in a Mess People Dow take things serious

  14. For the life of me I cant understand why we as a people are not collectively enraged by this shit.
    This is unacceptable on every level. Fuck the religious manure. It cannot be that in 2017 we are still debating the rape of children.

    • Kester, Righteous indignation helps to highlight problems, hardly ever to solve them unless you make it hugely contagious. See what you can do to make others feel as strongly about the issue as you do, that’s you best bet.

  15. They have Scared Many Young Women by Having Sex wit dem first before they Married Facts

  16. UNC is always aligned to questionable persons. This temporary senator is using religion to justify pedophilia.

  17. ROWLIAR done take up yuh offer he raping dem while in school ….and giving dem children too and not minding dem !

  18. Is it true that Opposition wants JSC on the bill ?

  19. Lasana….. go to the naughty corner for this one……yuh go get in trouble for this….. Just that P/Town snip alone is more trouble than you really want…… lmao….. Lasana…..me nah have no bail money inno….. all I could do is pelt hops and cheese over the wall fuh yuh lol

  20. Apparently Pastor Samuel had some other nonsense to say and was brought to heel by our new and youngest senator. It appears that the UNC is against this bill (surprise, surprise) and want to lose it with the FATCA bill in a JSC. They want to get back into power!!

  21. Spare the rod, rape the child? LOL

  22. dUDE you went too far with that Princes Town snick!

  23. Because it’s part of their So called Religion

  24. I just cannot understand why these supposedly learned people want to legalise hardback man tackling pre-teen girls… Come on! Better than that!!!!!
