Pakistani Child Marriage: 9-Year-Old Sold For Thousands

Another Pakistani pedophile paying off a family to marry their 9-year-old daughter, because child marriage is justified in the minds of some Muslims.

Although the pre-teen's uncles tried to delay the Rukhsati (when the groom takes his bride to his parents' house to live after the wedding ceremony), and  police were called to intervene, nothing was done since the 35-year-old groom, Zahid Zardari, is apparently a man of influence and riches, since he allegedly paid Rs1.5 million (about $24,000) and had armed guards at the ceremony.
