Shoebat: Thankfully one of the girl’s relatives said something about this, and both her father and the pedophile have been arrested, but the fact remains that for these men, a little bit of food was worth more than the life of their own daughter:
A six-year-old girl has been forced to marry a 55-year-old man after her father allegedly sold her in exchange for a goat in Afghanistan.
Both the man, Seyed Abdolkarim, and the girl’s father have been arrested after a concerned relative raised the alarm about the wedding.
According to the father, who also allegedly received rice, tea, sugar and cooking oil for his daughter, he and his family were desperate for food and by selling his daughter he had one less mouth to feed. (source)
