One in three of world's child marriages happens in India
Report dated 24/07/2014 @ 3:19 PM

One in three of world's child marriages happens in India A UNICEF official researching child marriage in India, said in traditional Indian society girls are seen only as future mothers and wives. In rural Indian villages there are concerns about the safety of girls, as if a girl is married off early, the logic is that her husband can protect her. This also blocks the possibility of a girl bringing dishonour to her family by selecting her own undesirable partner.

In 2006 India passed a law banning child marriages but implementation of it is weak because of social pressure, and child marriages are rarely reported to local authorities because few people see it as breaking a law.

The Indian government says it has taken steps to end child marriages including the establishment of a National Commission for Protection of Child Rights in 2007.

Samajwadi Party parliamentarian Dharmendra Yadav says poverty leads to a lack of education and poor uneducated families just want to avoid huge dowries by giving away their daughters in marriage at an early age.
