She said, ‘There is a level of mental illness in this country that nobody has recognised yet. It is not everybody that you see walking on the streets that is sane. How sane can a man be if he is taking a nine or 14-year-old girl for a wife? Is that person sane?’.

‘As the saying goes, power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. That is what we are seeing now. We need to find our moral compass because we have lost it totally. If we don’t find our moral compass, things would not change for the better.’
