Under #PPP Govt. Child Marriage laws aren’t worth more than paper they’re printed on. Doors to forced conversion of minor girls are open because Child Marriages are facilitated by corrupt & ignorant JoPs, Nikah Registrars, UCs & Police. #PoojaKumari a child had to defend her self pic.twitter.com/63iNI1aPhS
