    get marry if you want but don’t have kids. especially if you’re going to treat them like this, they don’t deserve it and the ignorance this people are filled with. better option adopt kids don’t destroy a kids future with a disability, when you know you’re not always going to be there for them

    This is another reason as to why God forbidden incest and first-cousin marreages.

      @Christian Apologetica I agree with you its totally wrong but what i keep saying is Religion allows its why the people that do it do it.. You will not find one sikh married to a first cousin because the religion says you can't marry a cousin. Christianity Judaism Islam all allow it. Half of America forbids it. Uk does not Europe does. Can you explain to me why that is?
      The Hindu marriage act forbids first cousin marriages.

      @VHS youtube Maybe in your religion or culture is not, but the fact is that, no matter how many people and cultures practice those abominable things DOES NOT mean they are ok! I have a friend that married his cousin and his kid born with a severe mental problems. The doctor said that if they have another child, it could came with Down syndrome.

      @Christian Apologetica what I am saying is it was not forbidden and still isn't forbidden, people don't marry cousins in the west because they follow medical science. None of tge Abrahamic religions had the wisdom for bid it. Ashkenazi jews married Cousins when they came to European. Arabs have done it before Islam even existed. First blame Judaism then blame Christianity then blame Islam for all this mess. Hinduism No first cousin marriages. Sikhs no first cousin marriages hsve ever taken place. How wise compared to the Abrahamic jokes.

      @VHS youtube I don't think so, because in Israel that was allowed before God gave the law (the 10 commentments) to the jewish people. Muslims and other cultures and religions still develop those practices.

    I wanted to marry my 1st cousin and I’m white British but my family said no you cannot as you could end up with disabilities in your children and it’s not fair on the children, and I can understand that now and it is incest plus it should be against the law in this country.

    This video is another effort to defame the Muslims...almost 50% of muslims marry to their cousins...and then they say muslims are deliberately increasing their numbers to surpass every other community and to rule over them... silly hypocrites

    How are they all still alive after inbreeding for that long. Wouldn’t their bloodline die off since the kids who were born with genetic health problems aren’t getting married off and having kids. Unless that’s why they are producing many kids to try to get a healthy one to continue the tradition. 🙄🤦🏻‍♀️

    Pakistan is the land
    of cousin marriage.
    Some radical pakistanis
    even marry their own daughters.

    about that.

    When maulvu sahib says in his takreer "first cousin marriage is the result of disability in children" you understand should you listen him carefully or not.
    Btw it's disability in children is the result of first cousin marriages. Or simply incest

    If third generation British citizens are doing it despite getting all the morden education, knowing their fundamental rights, being in much diverse society then I think there's a certain mental hack that's stoping the community to move along with rest of world and not third world situations and compilations.

      Its not. Bible, Quran Torah allow incest this is why Christians and Jews have have all married cousins in the past, Muslims still do. Only Hindus and Sikhs don't allow any kind of incest.

    It takes a selfish and stupid person to know this is a probable outcome for your child and still choose to do it. Marrying your cousin is like marrying your sibling.

    I understand this but I also don’t because I’m a Bangladeshi Muslim and when I was eight my parents were already making deals with their sisters to marry me off to their sons but since I’m in England and am educated I have the freedom to say no but some people are just forced to (my parents wouldn’t force me) and that’s not ok there’s people in my house right now that are my cousins and they got married one is eighteen the other was thirty six and she only did it so she could move from Bangladesh to England so there are many reasons why people do it but I don’t exactly agree with any of them anyway, but it does happen like, one of the cousins could be in a well off country and the ones in a place like Bangladesh would want to move to that “better” country but without a good education they can’t so they marry, also some are forced because it would be “easier” and there’s not really any way for the relationship to fall apart unless the different parts of the family feud, but this marriage would either prevent it or enforce it which is kind of sticky nevertheless ITS ALL WRONG STOP 😭😭😭

      Oh and for the people that are saying they’re having more kids even after having mutated ones, this is kinda sickening but everything here is so, it’s actually shameful to have a small family and three kids is actually considered a “small family” it’s very looked down upon and people with smaller families get “ridiculed”?

    • Nasima
      Nasima 2 days ago +1

      Also people are blackmailed into it quite severely so the only thing that would actually stop this would be the education of these people in Bangladesh and Pakistan but it doesn’t exactly happen there, actually people are brought up with the security of having their life laid out in front of them, go to school, marry this person, care for them and that’s really just it and they just find it so easy

    I think family marriage should be band world wide there are way too many health risks deformities blood problems and more. I myself being a decent from a royal family know this I have little problems but the rest of my siblings and both of my kids have issues and I don't think that this is okay at all or to be incerged and to make it more of a problem I have one of the most rare blood tips in the world so as a child I had been in and out of the hospital to the point I felt like I was more of a ginpig then a child to the doctors that where trying to find out what was the problem and how to fix it and now I have a fear of hospitals and much of enny thing that has to deal with it. For a example my blood tips so rear that I'm shoer you have never seen or heard of it before because it's so rear that it's not docomated as a tip I will put it down so you can know that we do exsest min's RHn OBn
