Watch: Iraqi TV host interviews a child bride who was sold to forced marriage by her Muslim father.
As you can see the girl almost burst into tears when she describes how she is prevented from going to school by her Muslim fiancé.
This child is 10 years old. 10 years old. She looks absolutely broken. Engaged to a 25 year old man because his culture permits this.
The interviewer asks her her name, grade, and if she goes to school. She says no, my fiancé took me out. He asked how old is your fiancé? She didn’t know. He asks the fiancé his age, he says 25. He asked how long he’s been engaged, he said since she was 8. He asked how he knew her, he said they’re related. He then asked when theyre getting married and he said, in a bit, when she grows up (euphemism for ‘when she gets her period’ following the example of his prophet).
