Bangladesh has the highest numbers of child marriages across the world, and one would assume that they will try and fix it. But Bangladeshi government did recently will shock you. The Bangladeshi government proposed a law that permits young girls under the age of 18 to get married in ‘special cases’.

Not only this, the law under the special provision made the legal age of marriage to ZERO. Confused? Well, the law allows everyone from a toddler to 16 years of age to get married. Yes, you read it right.

It has another ridiculous point. The law also says that a girl under the age of 18 can be married to a man who’s twice her age after the consent of the parents and the court.

This new loophole in the ‘Child Marriage Restraint Act’ will not only make thousands of girls vulnerable to marital rapes but also early pregnancy.

A global movement aiming to prevent child marriage ‘Girls Not Brides’ has criticised this move extensively. According to New York-based Human Rights Watch, 52% of the girls are married before they are 18 and 18% are married before they turn 15.

Shocked? Well, this new proposal has made things worse for women empowerment. The government claimed that an underage marriage might protect the honour of women who unlawfully or accidentally fall pregnant out of wedlock.

What do you think about it?

Here’s what Bangladesh will do if India-Pakistan war happens!
