Forced marriage, deprivation of happiness

Spread the love

Shafia Fida
There are countless issues in Pakistan which are on daily basis being practiced throughout the country and no policies are so far made to counter those issues. Forced marriage is one of those issues which is largely practiced in Pakistan particularly in rural areas. Pakistan has the 6th highest number of force marriage. Cousin marriages are usually done forcefully. A report indicated that in 2016 there were 15.4 million of people who were by force married and among the victims 88% were women and 37% girls were under the age of 18 during the time of marriage. I request the government to make policies and laws regarding this issue in order to not allow the parents who forcefully marry their children and deprive them from happiness.
