Indonesian cleric under fire for marrying 12-year-old plans to marry more girls despite possible criminal charges

* He will get away with it, because nobody will dare to challenge him. Because Muhammad was a child molester and every good Muslim must follow Muhammad’s example.

“According to the [12-year-old] girl’s parents and some witnesses, the marriage between Pujiono and her is valid according to religion (kawin siri), but it is not registered with the state.”

It’s clear which brand of law Pujiono is going with, after the example of Muhammad’s marriage to Aisha.

More on this story. “Cleric may face criminal charges: Commission,” by Erwida Maulia for the Jakarta Post, October 27:

The Indonesian Child Protection Commission (KPAI) is planning to report to police a rich Muslim cleric in Semarang, Central Java, who married a 12-year-old girl, accusing him of having illegal sex with a minor.

KPAI secretary Hadi Supeno said Sunday the commission’s fact-finding team sent to Semarang at the weekend found that cleric Pujiono Cahyo Widianto, 43, owner and head of an Islamic boarding school there, had married and very likely slept with 12-year-old Lutfiana Ulfa.

“According to the girl’s parents and some witnesses, the marriage between Pujiono and her is valid according to religion (kawin siri), but it is not registered with the state,” Hadi told The Jakarta Post.

“What surprises us is that she was selected through a contest involving Puji’s first wife and followers as a panel of judges. Puji married the girl after she beat her competitors.”

He said Lutfiana’s parents admitted they had married her to Pujiono because of their financial difficulties.

“They said they couldn’t afford to send their children to school and hoped the marriage would improve their economic situation.”

Hadi said the commission would immediately report Pujiono, his 26-year-old first wife and Lutfiana’s parents to the Central Java Police for a criminal investigation.

All those involved in the case, he said, could be charged under Articles 81, 82 and 83 of the 2002 Law on Child Protection. If found guilty, they would face a maximum sentence of 15 years in jail and a fine of Rp 300 million (US$30,000), for “forcing”, “swindling” and/or “trading” a minor to sleep with another person.

The law defines a minor as anyone under the age of 18.

Hadi said Pujiono and the minor’s parents might have also violated the 1974 Marriage Law, which states a person must be at least 16 to marry.

Hadi said it would require a psychological test to prove whether the cleric could be termed a pedophile.

“We hope the police or the court, if the case is brought to trial, can determine this,” he added.

Pujiono reportedly married Lutfiana as his second wife in August and has declared he plans to marry two even younger girls — a seven-year-old and a nine-year old. The “eccentric” cleric refused to name the children out of concern it would spark “wider criticism”….

  1. The Indonesian Child Protection Commission (KPAI), should be calling for the girl to under go a virginity test, and DNA test, so as to get conclusive evidence as to whether this “charitable kyai” has had sex with her.

    Now what would be the case if she is found to be a virgin ?

    Does anybody here know ?

    Well for starters, this “charitable kyai” is acting within the law on Marriage No.1/1974 article 45

    Early marriage is not uncommon in Indonesia. Indonesia laws allow girls to marry at the age of 16. However, marriage before the age of 16 is possible with the consent of the girl’s parents, and the religious court or an officer of
    the government’s religious affairs office. Once married a girl is no longer considered a child and no longer benefits from child protection rights.

    Even though it is only in rare cases that married children still continue their education, regardless of their age, there is no legal restriction imposed upon them not to go to school. Law No.2/1989 on national education system does not prohibit married children from going to school. Article 5 of this law states
    that “every citizen has an equal right to receive education”. At the same time,Article 7 states “the acceptance of a person as a student in an education unit held without any discrimination against sex, religion, ethnic, race, social status
    and level of economic power, taking into consideration the specific characteristics of any special education unit”.. Therefore, there is no
    requirement/obligation for every school to accept married children as its students.

    It is deplorable to label this “charitable kyai” as a pedophile until we have conclusive evidence

    What we should be doing is target the Indonesia government, for having such a law, that has made it possible for hundreds of thousands of young girls to be legally raped since this law was passed in 1974.

    We should also be targeting the root source of this disgusting law. ISLAM

    We should remember a little ditty by Frank Vincent Zappa before we libel this “charitable kyai” without evidence

    But I think it’s your MIND

  2. Muhammad wasn’t a child while he got married and most of the Muslims right now are good Muslims and they don’t do that. But there’s many people of those who non-Muslim they having sex with girls under 18 even that not allowed and that not secret you can see that in sex web sites.

  3. * you can see that in sex web sites

    Which under-age sex sites are your favourites? (I’m not interested in visiting them, but the authorities might be)

  4. John . you are a muslim – at least use your own name, you miserable coward You are a piece of canine excrement. What web suites are you talking about?? Give them to the police — muslim pervert!!! Still trying to turn the UK into a backward muslim hovel, john? Well go and kill yourself – save us the trouble when the time comes. Try and write in English correctly – you ignorant worm.

  5. Indonesia has become the paedophile capital of the world. Hard on drugs but when it comes to the rights of the child – no way. There are thousands of complaints about Indonesia and its treatment of women and children. Your days are numbered you Muslim bastards. Any nation that abuses its own people is doomed.

  6. There Is A Huge Difference In Muslims And The infidels, The Muslims Honour A Girl By Making Her Their Wife But The Infidels Go around Fornikating Kommiting Adultry All Over, No One Knows Who Is The Father And Every Girl Has Multiple Partners, No One Gets Married And If Someone Does They Are divorced Within The First 2 Years Flat.

    Simple Fakt About The Infidels Is That Over 85% Of Infidels Born Are Bastards. Meaning Illigitimate Children, Bite On That Fakt Before Yous Dare speak About The Muslims. Making A Young Girl Your Wife Is Not A Sin But Something That The infidels Do Which To Rape A 5 Years Old Girl And then Kill Her Is Diskusting. Only If The Infidels Were Able To See Their Own Slimy Ugly Filthy Reflektions In The Mirror. Only If….

    Allah O Akbar

  7. Ah Peace,
    Firstly change your moniker – it is dishonest (but I guess you are a muslim and lying is second nature to you). Thank you so much for showing us again how stupid you muslims really are! Actually, only a few percent of us “Infidels” are bastards – meaning no father – so perhaps you have got confused and are taking about muslims. And in the west, women usually have one partner. Here in the west it is illegal to marry more than one woman. As usual you are uninformed and incorrect. You know that we need muslims like you to continually show the world how moronic and stupid you really are – well done and thanks. This site would not exist without people like you (LOL).

    As for raping and killing 5 years olds: while there are a few non-muslim criminals who do this they are quickly jailed/executed in the West, however muslims tend to honor them after all they are only acting as your perverted prophet mohammed did. Did you know that all religions excepting islam consider murder as a sin, however muslims have raised the arts of murder to new standards. I seem to recall a mass-murdering muslim who beat the brains of a young girl out against a rock and was then accorded hero status in Lebanon.

    I am wondering if I should correct your spelling, but there seems little point as you are obviously a brain-dead twirp who has been through the Madrassa Mindwash. Now some corrections to your little diatribe. Being born out of wedlock is not the same as being a “bastard” since the child has a father. Over 80% of non-muslims are born in wed-lock, with the married pair being a single couple, who raise their children to generally respect others and to contribute to society. Muslims, on the other hand, raise their chidren to be violent, anti-social welfare cheats who contribute very little to society. This is despite the muslim parents being married, in what is essentially a relationship in which the woman is often threatened and abused (actually, on a simplistic level this goes some way to explaining the violent behavior of muslim youth).

    I think that you should first clean your mirror and then study your refection.
    As for us infidels, we often look in the mirror, we often ask if we could do things in a better way, and we try to understand what we see in the mirror.
    Lets us compare that to you, a muslim, blinded by stupidity and hate, who can only look in the mirror and see a reflection of what it can dimply imagine. It must be lonely, muslim, to be so stupid that you cannot understand the world that passes you. That is why you hate the world outside you – you can never aspire to it, you remain a slave to the words of a violent criminal rapist ca. 600 AD, and that is all you will be., YOU CAN NEVER GROW, YOU CAN NEVER LEARN, AND YOU DESERVE ONLY PITY.

  8. Kaw, that is an excellent response, it’s a pity that “peace” will never understand just what you have written.
