A shocking video which went viral on social media shows little Afghan girl being beaten and forcibly taken away from the arms of her crying mother after her father sold her into forced marriage to a 60-year-old man. Forced marriage and child marriage are common practice in Afghanistan.
Afghanistan has been granted United Nations Human Rights Council membership after getting 130 votes.
130 countries including Western countries voted to elect Afghanistan to the UN Human Rights Council, the same country where child marriage, forced marriage, honor killings and Domestic violence are social norms Pakistan and Qatar also gained membership at the Human Rights Council, Countries where violence against women is at an alarming level. Women of all ages are enduring brutal physical and sexual abuse in their own homes.
An estimated 15 million girls under 18 are married each year. Girls who marry before they turn 18 are less likely to remain in school and more likely to experience domestic violence. Everything possible must be done to protect these vulnerable children.
Under Sharia law girls can marry at the age of 6, just like the Prophet Muhammad from the Koran did when he married Aisha. Muhammad consummated his marriage with Aisha when she was nine.
