Child Marriages
By Usama Junaid Khan

Child Marriage/Child slavery
Early marriage is a violation of children’s human rights. despite being prohibited by international law, it continues to rob millions of girls under 18 around the world of their childhood.
Marriage involving children under 18-years-old remains a widely culturally accepted practice in many corners of the globe. UNICEF estimates that 11% of women worldwide were married before reaching the age of 15. Although boys can be affected by the practice, it is mostly girls who suffer slavery as a consequence of child marriage.
Child marriage is fuelled by gender inequality, poverty, traditions, and insecurity.650 million women, and over 150 million men, already suffer the consequences of child marriage.

In Pakistan there are many cases of abusing and using a child as for the labor or to damage their future and young age by doing early marriages. in both cases children of young age are facing bitter view of their life.
People from tribal areas and low wagers make their children to do marriage just for the penalty of any issue which they are facing or in case of having no money to feed them.
A High Court In Pakistan has ruled that men can marry underage girls, under Sharia law, after they have experienced their first menstrual cycle.
Sharia law is the religious law of Islam derived from the teachings of the Quran, which acts as a divine code or guide for living.
The ruling was made by the Sindh High Court on Feb. 3 during the hearing of Huma Younus, a 14-year-old Catholic girl who was abducted, pressured to convert to Islam, and forced into child marriage.
(Copied for the reason of showing legal actions in Pakistan)
WHY CHILD MARRIAGE HAPPENS
• Persistent inequalities between boys and girls
• Laws protecting girls aren’t enforced
• Parents think marriage will protect girls from violence
• Younger wives are considered to be more obedient
• Higher dowry for older girls or women

There has been growing awareness about the negative consequences of child marriage, especially for girls , including the Impact of marriage on children’s education and risks to their physical and psychological health.
We have to stop child marriages in our country too because, it is devastating for our future generation,and for our future nature of humanity.it is the time to take action against child marriages and this type of slavery because it is not doing good with under age people.
