A shocking report by ROKNA, an Iranian state news agency about a 12-year-old girl in the western province of Ilam in Iran who burned herself to death after being sold by her father into forced marriage with an elderly Muslim man. Her husband was the same age as her father.
In a meeting organized by the government to “Support Pregnant Women and Infants in the Impoverished Areas of Ilam Province”, a children right’s activist identified the girl as “Raha”.
In 2018 the Islamic Republic of Iran, member of UN Women board, has rejected a parliamentary motion to ban child marriage for under 13-yr-old girls. Each year ,more than 200 girls under 9,
and thousands girls under 13 yrs old marry in Iran (population of 80 million people).
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.
Please watch the embedded video below and listen to the life story of Aynaz Cyrus, a child bride in her home country of Iran, abused and imprisoned as a teen, she escaped to America and now advocates for women and girls,
suffering under Sharia. Her mission is to bring hope and healing to women and girls who have been unfortunate enough to be exposed to the plague of Islamic ideology. She experienced, first hand, the horrors of living under Islamic theocracy in Iran.
