Media organizations play Tasek Gelugor MP's Parliament Video Statement which has gone viral worldwide, to show his statement was quoted as he said

He said a child who has reached puberty, even at nine years old, can be considered matured.
He added in some cases, someone aged 12 and 15 years old could physically look like they were 18, and thus would be ready for marriage.
"In some instances, it is not impossible that they get married if they have reached puberty at the age of nine. A 12-year-old may have a body of an 18-year-old which means some girls are "physically and spiritually" ready for marriage," he said.
