Watch: CNN's Nick Paton Walsh talks with a young Afghan girl who was married at age 13 then torturend by her cruel & ruthless husband's family.
In one of the most extreme examples of domestic violence exposed in Afghanistan, Ms Gul's in-laws pulled out her fingernails, beat her, broke her fingers and burned her body with hot pokers.
The brave girl whose life has been saved by her neighbors, asked CNN to show her face and let her speak up against the practice of child marriage and forced marriage which is considered a social norm throughout the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
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.
