The parents of a 6-year-old girl in Pakistan's Swat Valley say tribal authorities are forcing them to marry off their daughter to resolve a family feud.
Under Sharia law in Pakistan women and girls are not considered human beings but the property of the Muslim man.
Under Sharia law girls can marry at the age of 6, just like the Prophet Muhammad from the Koran did when he married Aisha.
In Muslim countries like Yemen and Iran, girls are considered "adult" and being sold into forced marriages with grown men by their families.
There are even some cases of child marriages in Australia and Britain when immigrants brought this tradition into the West.
