Afghan father sells 6-yo daughter into marriage for a goat, bag of rice
“A father from Afghanistan, barely making ends meet, sold his own daughter to a 55-year-old cleric for a goat and some food.
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.
The man explained he tried to take care of his family and at the same time wanted to get rid of another mouth he had to feed. Abdolkarim promised him that he wouldn’t have sexual intercourse with the girl until she turned 18 and that sealed the deal.
After the ceremony, the imam reportedly took his six-year-old wife to his relative’s house in Firozkoh, in Ghor province, without specifying their status. Thus the house owner at first thought that it was his daughter. However, some time later he noticed that Abdolkarim was undressing the girl before they slept.
Isn’t that nice? You racists and biggots just don’t understand, he was only trying to comfort the child. It’s perfectly normal, natural and healthy to sleep naked with 6 year olds! Like hello, like its 2016, get with the times.
