Marriage Ban on Children Underage Girls

The National Society for Human Rights [NSHR] is stepping into the fray and is going to recommend "to the higher authorities a ban on marriages of underaged [sic] girls; the society will seek to fix 15 years at the minimum marriageable age for girls." Good news. We will have to wait and see whether or not anything becomes of this, though. "...the move was based on several court rulings on cases of underage girls married to men tens of years older than them, which have aroused debate in society." You mean debate around the world!
