A heartbreaking report that went viral shows a 14-year-old girl from Pakistan in an interview with AP begging for help after her father sold her to pay poker debt.
As you can see in the video below she says:
"My father lost me in a poker gambling match. His name (the man who won the game) was Lal Haider. Tribal elders are insisting on handing me over to them. They threatened to pick me up forcibly and kidnap my brother too. I need justice in the name of god."

Child marriage is still practiced all over the Arab-Muslim world in countries such as Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, etc.
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.
