CAUGHT ON VIDEO=> Muslim Father Marries Off 5 Year-Old Daughter for Money and a Goat
A poor Afghan father married off his 6 year-old daughter to a 55 year-old man for money and a goat.
The five year-old girl is seen in a burqa crying in the video as she is traded for cash and a goat.
Russia Today reported:
A father from Afghanistan, barely making ends meet, sold his own daughter to a 55-year-old cleric for a goat and some food. Footage doing the rounds on the Internet shows the moment local women gave him a beating.
The father agreed to sell his six-year-old daughter Gharibgol to the 55-year-old imam, Seyed Abdolkarim, which runs counter the law in Afghanistan, which allows girls to marry from the age of 16 and boys from 18, according to France 24.
Abdolkarim was arrested when it had came to police knowledge that he had wed a girl who was sold to him for a goat, a bag of rice, tea, sugar, and cooking oil. The officers were pursuing the father after local women discovered what had happened and snapped at him.
The footage was taken by local journalist Fawad Ahmady for France 24.
