Sajal Aly claims Parents need to be ‘Taught’ how to Treat Kids
ajal Aly has reacted to the Dua Zehra case, stating that parents should be taught how to deal with their children.
Karachi-based Dua Zehra is a teenager who went missing from her home.
Her parents claimed that she was kidnapped. Dua was later found in Lahore and she revealed that she got married.
In a statement, she alleged that her parents physically abused her and were planning to get her married to someone she did not want to marry.
As a result, she ran away and married out of free will.
A court in Lahore has now ruled that Dua is free to live with her husband.
Dua’s situation prompted a lot of reactions as she said she is 18 while her parents claim she is actually 14-years-old.
Armeena Khan said: “Dua is a child (a minor) and she belongs to her parents until she is 18.
“Under Pakistani law, if she has been subjected to child marriage, then it is still rape and abduction.
“A court marriage or a nikah cannot take place under false pretence.”
