4-year-old girl married in India and divorced at 8! WTF!

Four years ago, a four-year-old girl named Fatima became a victim of child marriage in Nakhi village of Shravasti district of Uttar Pradesh.Fatima's father Mangre, a poor labourer got her daughter married with a 14-year-old boy, Bakridi.

But, in a span of four years, the light of knowledge and education changed Mangre's old beliefs.

After four years, when the groom's family, staying in nearby Tulsipur village, came at Mangre's home to take eight-year-old Fatima to her in-laws's place, then brave Mangre had the guts to say no to them.Mangre asked 18-year-old Bakridi's family to wait for ten years to take Fatima at their home.

Because, according to law, a girl should be at least 18-year-old at the time of marriage.

But, Bakridi's family did not agree with Mangre's decision. So, he called a Kazi, who helped in granting divorce to them. Full story...
