Pakistan MP marries a 14-yr-old girl from Balochistan, probe launched
In an extremely shocking incident, a Pakistan parliamentarian has married a 14 year old girl. Pakistan police have launched an investigation into the marriage of a 14-year-old girl with Maulana Salahuddin Ayubi, leader of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F), and a Member of National Assembly (MNA) from Balochistan. The marriage of the teenage girl with the Pakistan MP, who is four times her age, comes despite the country's law, which does not allow marriages of girls below the age of 16 and also recommends punishment for parents if they wilfully do it.
