Actress Amna Malik’s new upcoming drama, with the tentative title ‘Child Marriage’, is all set to break the stereotypes against an extremely important topic that has latched on to our society.
“Child Marriage”, is being produced by Big Bang Entertainment and will air on ARY Digital after Eid. In an interview, Amna Malik shared her two cents on the script.
“The script is very interesting, people will enjoy it while watching the drama. It is like old dramas such as Ankahi, a similar kind of family is shown in this [drama]. It shows the 70s era where we all wear churidaar pyjamas,” she added.
What we know so far is that the drama has been directed by Syed Meesum Naqvi and also stars Ijaz, Maria Wasti, Maya Khan, Saad, Paras, Diya Mughal and Sajida Syed.
Importance of Ending Child Marriage
The practice of child marriage, which is the marriage of individuals under the age of 18, is a violation of human rights and is harmful to the health, education, and well-being of children, particularly girls. This is true in many countries, including Pakistan.
There are several reasons why it is more than necessary to end the concept of underaged marriage in Pakistan. Firstly, child marriage has significant negative consequences for the physical and mental health of children. Child brides are more likely to experience complications during pregnancy and childbirth, which can lead to maternal and infant mortality. Underage marriage also puts girls at risk of domestic violence, sexual abuse, and exploitation.
Secondly, child marriage has a negative impact on the education and economic opportunities of girls. Girls who are married at a young age are more likely to drop out of school, which limits their potential to earn a living and contribute to their families and communities. Child marriage perpetuates the cycle of poverty and inequality, as girls who marry young are less likely to have the skills and resources needed to improve their own lives and those of their families.
Finally, child marriage perpetuates gender inequality and reinforces harmful social norms and attitudes towards girls and women. It limits their autonomy and control over their own lives and bodies and reinforces the belief that girls are less valuable than boys. This contributes to a culture of discrimination and violence against girls and women.
