I want to draw the attention of the government towards a serious act which is comon everywhere in Pakistan. People in Pakistan have made child marriage a part of their culture. However, they are not aware that this barbaric custom is killing the dreams of their children. According to a UN report published in 2014, one in every five South Asian girls is married before she reaches the age of 15.

It is my humble request to the government of Pakistan to end this inhumanity. They should save the innocent souls from this cruel act.
