This is one story out of millions, a girl who was forced to marry at 14 in Bangladesh. Her father sold her into forced marriage with an abusive husband who abandoned her after she became pregnant at the age of 15.
As you can see in the video below she describes how she gave up all her dreams, and how her future is ruined.
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 12 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.
