This is the man’s second wife ~ he ran an Islamic school and picked one of the kids from it for his ‘wife’. But the Indonesian court did not buy his ‘Muhammad did it’ line and put an end to his child molesting days.
Pujiono Cahyo Widiyanto, 45, from the Central Java city of Semarang, sparked nationwide controversy over his decision to marry poor village girl Lutfiana Ulfa. “We recommend six years prison for him. He has been proven legally as being sexually abusive towards women, especially towards this underage person,” prosecutor Suningsih, who goes by one name, said. “As the owner of a religious school he doesn’t set a good example,” she said.
Widiyanto, also known as Sheikh Puji, married Ulfa in August 2008.

It is a brutal story involving 12 children, and includes allegations that dogs were allegedly set upon victims.
The accused were arrested, charged, and ordered to hand in their passports, and are now out on bail.
Temporary marriage is one way in which sexual immorality is cloaked with respectability in the Islamic world by those who scoff at the West’s alleged immorality.

The practice of temporary marriage has long been common in Shiite Muslim communities, especially in Iran. The idea is that rather than having an affair, a man who wants to be sexually involved with a woman should marry her — for a few months, or even, hours — so the relationship will be legitimate.
