Child marriage: The Jirga way

Quite surprisingly, the custom of child marriage still exists in some of the most rural parts of the world. Unfortunately, since these prehistoric traditions - mind you, not associated to national culture or religion - have been handed down from past generations, they can not be eliminated so swiftly. Additionly, they do not receive the spotlight of the media, since such incidents give nations a bad name, and so they continue to exist without any government interference, even though where they exist, at least in the following case, such acts go against the religion that the nation upholds with such fervor.

One girl from Pakistan, Amna, has decided to break this trend with her opposition to this long practiced custom, following the footsteps of the brave and determined Mukhtar Mai, to step forward and speak out against this oppressive and binding tradition called "Vani". Read about it here.
