Different cultures are different. That doesn't make them right or wrong. It just is what it is. If your religious I can understand why you might have a hard time wrapping your mind around this. However, lets say an 17 year old marries a 7 year old girl and has sex with her whether she wants to or not. At the very least he would be married to her for the rest of their lives most likely so whats wrong with that?
If you want to blame ANYONE for this travesty and miscarriage of justice in a supposedly "democratic" state, blame America for putting this completely hopeless nutjob into power.
The law — which some lawmakers say was never debated in parliament — is intended to regulate family life inside Afghanistan's Shiite community, which makes up about 20 percent of this country of 30 million people. The law does not affect Afghan Sunnis.
Nope, I didn't miss this part, any more than in Iran when they had finally achieved a moderate government in a democratic election the US/UK sent its jakyls in and the Ayatollah Humani.
Wow, to think our soldiers are risking their lives in Afghanistan only for crap laws like this to be put on the table.
So progress is allowing women to finally be able to vote
