But in August 2008, then 42-year old Syech Puji decided that his then 25-year old wife Ummi Hani was not enough for him. So he took Lutfiana Ulfa as his unofficial wife. Lutfiana Ulfa was then 2 months away from her 12th birthday, and she had just started her studies at a local junior high school.<br /> <br /> Lutfiana Ulfa became a child bride when Syech Puji married her in a nikah siri (informal marriage) ceremony. This brought a chorus of disapproval and condemnation from many Indonesians, with some questioning whether this nikah siri is merely a cover for pedophilia, particularly as Syech Puji had also announced his intention to marry 2 other young girls, aged 9 and 7 respectively.<br /> <br /> Syech Puji is no ordinary Muslim man trying to marry 4 wives. He is in fact a Muslim cleric and he runs an Islamic boarding school called Ponpes Miftahul Jannah in Central Java. Moreover Syech Puji is also a very rich man, being the owner of PT Sinar Lendoh Terang (Silenter), an exporter of local handicrafts.<br /> <br /> The Anti-Corruption Civil Society Coalition (Kompak) filed a police report against Syech Puji who was then charged with child abuse. But in 2009, a judge at the Ungaran District Court released Syech Puji citing incomplete and vague indictment. The judge said at that time: "Puji is acquitted from all charges and therefore, he must be released from jail."<br /> <br /> The Attorney General Office appealed that ruling, and now the appeal judge has found Syech Puji guilty.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.theyoungturks.com/">http://www.theyoungturks.com/</a>
