Now, let’s understand the whole case: she was a poor girl who married a man because her family accepted this solution, issued by a local judge, as lawful and convenient, according to local codes and traditions. Now, she was not happy in her husband’s company and ended up commiting suicide, which is totally understandable and regrettable. However, who are we blaming here? Morocco’s legal system? Morocco’s society? Amina’s rapist and husband? Amina’s family? Is this a trick to oust the country’s government, with the help of occidental NGOs and to the profit of occidental world control strategies? What do we know?…

The focal point here shoud be the condamn of islamic society to the fact that a girl has lost her virginity without being married - which would disgrace her and her family. Girls there may marry even younger than 16, with the parents' permission. If all that's to change, it's not a case of changing some articles in moroccan law, but expecting that their whole society changes - which cannot be imposed on them, or blamed on the government.
