Kozhikode: Kanthapuram AP Aboobacker Musliyar Friday said that Muslim girls should be allowed to get married at the age of 16.

“It should be legalized that Muslim girls can get married at the age of 16. That will divert them from some wicked traits and help them lead a rightful life,” he said while reacting to the queries of the reporters over the controversial circular issued by the government which allowed registration of marriages happened before the girl turned 18.

“Marriage at the age of 16 cannot be considered as child marriage,” Kanthapuram said adding the other communities can also follow it if that is legalized.
