In a subsequent hearing, the parents of Arzoo brought the birth certificate of Arzoo to the court which stated 2007 as her birth year. Even though the birth certificate proved that she was thirteen years old, the court ruled that the marriage was legal.
A video of Arzoo’s mother in which she lost consciousness after the decision, went viral on social media.
