Opposition Of Anti-Child Marriages Bill Is Disappointing
Bill against child marriage generated heated discussion in the National Assembly. Several lawmakers, including those from PTI, opposed it because it was ‘unislamic’. There is a history of conservative quarters in the Parliament opposing progressive pieces of legislation, but opposition coming from lawmakers of a party that promises ‘change’ is disappointing.
