Dear Editor,

I read with disgust in the SN of the 22nd May, 2004 "Businessman grabs 13 year old 'sweetheart' from aunt - flouts court order." I believe the law should be very firm with this individual who seems to be above the law and allowed to do things with impunity. I call on the Muslim community to condemn this act by this Muslim businessman who hurt another Muslim family, harmed a child and caused pain, dislocation and distress to the young girl and her family.

I call on those responsible for the protection of the rights of children to come out against this dastardly act and to speak out forcefully against the injustices meted out against the poor and powerless and against the advantage taken on this thirteen year old child.

Yours faithfully,
