Pakistan Compels 45-year-old Man to Divorce his 4-year-old Wife

ISLAMABAD: A marriage that was solemnised by a panchayat invited ire from local residents and was forced to be called off. Public and media pressure and threat of action by the police compelled a man, 45, to divorce a four-year-old child whom he had married under a tribal custom in Dera Ismail Khan. (Feb 9, 2007)

The winds of change are slow,
But I can hear them round the bend.
We can all feel them blow,
And watch barbarism bend.
