Auction of girls is going on in Afghanistan
One hundred days of Taliban rule in Afghanistan have been completed. In this era of politics, the economic crisis in front of the Afghan people is getting deeper. In such a situation, now unemployed and indebted people are seeing only two ways. Under this, either they take the risk of starving or marrying their young girls so that they can get some money in return.
A woman named Fahima told in conversation
A husband named Fahima has sold his 6-year-old and one-and-a-half-year-old daughters. Fahima said that she has cried many times. Because her husband has sold his two daughters for marriage to escape the drought in western Afghanistan. Fahima said that my husband told me that if we do not give our daughters, we will all die. We don’t have anything to eat. I feel very bad for selling my daughters for such money. we have no choice.
Money is being received now, will take the girls later
According to another report. A woman from a village in western Afghanistan also sold her newborn daughter for $500 to raise food for the rest of the children. Now that woman has been paid $250. The rest of the money will be given after the girl learns to walk.
This is not marriage, it is child rape.
Hamza Frog, a prominent women’s rights campaigner in Afghanistan even said this. The rate of child marriage could almost double in the coming few months. Seeing such cases, my heart believes that this is not a marriage. This is child rape.
Taliban said – this is not our problem
Abdul Rahim Akbar is providing bread or other food items to the poorest people in the camp of the poor in Kala-e-Naw. He has appealed to the local Taliban administration after several cases of selling daughters due to starvation came to light. But the Taliban’s local governor, Maulvi Abdul Sattar, told AFP that child marriage was not a Taliban problem.
