The video below gives a glimpse into the harsh lives of women in Afghanistan who serve as a member of the UN Human Rights Council.
During an interview with a German journalist, Afghan father explained why he sells his little daughter to forced marriage. He claims women are a burden on the family and he needs to get rid of her as soon as possible.
The mother also interviewed and explained that in Afghan society, a woman woman is treated like a farm animal, women's lives have no value and a husband can kill his wife if he wants to.
In most Islamic countries there are no laws protecting women's rights, or prohibiting child marriage.
Under Sharia law a woman is considered half of a man, because the Qur'an says she has only half of a brain.
According to Islamic tradition, the "honor" of the entire family is measured by women's behavior. Any action that may be perceived as harming the family's honor may cost the woman her life. In other words, a woman is required not only to obey Islam including its strict codes of modesty but also to completely obey her male guardians (husband, father, brother and even uncle).
Sharia laws permits child marriage, forced marriage, child brides, polygamy, FGM, acid attacks, honor killings, flogging, beheading and stoning.
Unfortunately the UN ignores the crimes against humanity taking place in Afghanistan and even elected the country to be a member of the UN Human Rights Council.
