While taking pictures at a wedding, a professional photographer was disgusted to learn that the groom was about to walk down the aisle with a child bride — so he took matters into his own hands.
As Islam grows in the West, we’re told that the countless oppressive and violent compulsions perpetuated by the Muslim community are part of their culture, and therefore must be tolerated and respected. Female genital mutilation, wife-beating, rape, and child marriage are now being excused and even legitimized in courtrooms across the globe for the sake of avoiding offending and provoking retaliation from the so-called religion of peace.
Because the prophet Muhammad, who Muslims are scripturally required to emulate, married Aisha at age 6 and consummated their union once she turned 9, many Islamic nations allow adult men to wed girls as young as this, citing their religious right and duty. While leftists grovel and apologize for this inhumanity, fortunately, there are real men who are willing to stand in defense of these innocent children.
On July 5, professional photographer Onur Albayrak arrived at Turgut Özal Nature Park in the eastern Turkish province of Malatya to shoot a traditional Islamic marriage ceremony. Having photographed many engagements and weddings, Albayrak assumed it would a typical job capturing the happy couple on their big day. However, once he found out that the bride-to-be was a terrified 15-year-old girl, he did the only thing he could think to do.
After discovering that the Muslim groom he was hired to photograph was marrying a 15-year-old child bride against her will, professional photographer Onur Albayrak furiously beat the child molester, breaking the groom’s nose in the process, according to Hurriyet Daily News.
Albayrak reportedly questioned the groom about the age of bride when he noticed that she looked far too young to be getting married. Understandably, he erupted into a rage when the groom unapologetically informed him that she was only 15.
After Albayrak reacted angrily to the news of the bride’s age, he and the groom began to quarrel before engaging in a fist fight. Not only did the photographer brutally beat the perverted groom, he left him with a broken nose as a reminder that marrying an underage girl is morally inexcusable. He has since been hailed a hero on social media.
Responding online to the allegations, Albaryak explained that while he wishes the incident could’ve gone differently, he doesn’t regret attempting to stop the child marriage.
“Thanks to all friends who have been able to see this news for two days and write a much-needed message. Yes, unfortunately, the situation is one that I wish hadn’t happened, but it did happen,” he wrote on his Facebook business page. “I’m not going to do it again, but I’ll say, yes, no one is sorry. Child marriage is child abuse in my eyes and no can force me to take a picture of it.”

Albayrak told the media that he was hired by the now injured groom several weeks prior to photograph the July wedding. However, he didn’t discover the bride’s young age until he arrived at the location on the day of the ceremony and noticed the girl visibly upset, The Straits Times reports.
“The groom had come to my studio some two weeks ago and was alone. I saw the bride for the first time at the wedding. She’s a child, and I felt her fear because she was trembling. The groom attacked me as I was leaving,” Albayrak said, noting that he is “happy to manifest his reaction.”
There has been no report on the status of the groom or child bride since the incident. Although Turkey’s legal age of consent for marriage is 18, child marriage is a growing problem. As the country continues to move toward Islamic values, oppressive religious tenets are on the rise.
Child marriage is not only widespread in Muslim countries, it is promoted and sanctioned in Islam. The prophet Muhammad, Allah’s messenger and Islam’s perfect man, married his favorite wife, Aisha, when she was just 6. This was at the command of Allah. He then had sex with her when she turned 9, setting the standard for all Muslims.
Bukhari vol. 7, #65: “Narrated Aisha that the prophet wrote the marriage contract with her when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old. Hisham said: ‘I have been informed that Aisha remained with the prophet for nine years (i.e. till his death).'”
Book 008, Number 3311: “A’isha (Allah be pleased with her) reported that Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) married her when she was seven years old, and he was taken to his house as a bride when she was nine, and her dolls were with her; and when he (the Holy Prophet) died she was eighteen years old.”
As it has for over a millennium, Islam will continue to oppress billions of Muslims who practice it and non-Muslims who are subjected to it. The only way to stop this vicious circle is for good men to stand up against it. Thanks to Onur Albayak, the plague of Islamic child marriage is being exposed. Now, we must also do our part in combatting this barbaric ideology.
