The women's wing of the Muslim League has written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In this letter, he has opposed the proposed move to increase the age for legal marriage of women of 18 to 21 years of age, opposing the proposal and urging them not to take a hasty decision on an important social issue.
In a letter written by PK Nurbana Rashid, secretary of the Indian Union Women's League, the delay in the age of marriage will lead to a live-in relationship and illegitimate relationship. Instead of enforcing the Child Marriage Prohibition Act 2006 in the letter, he termed the efforts to increase the age for women eligible for marriage unfair. Also, what is the point of taking such decisions when the existing laws are not implemented effectively?
Last year, there were 300 reported cases of early marriage in Kerala. According to a report, 30% of women in rural areas are getting married before the age of 18. He further said that before reaching a decision, proper dialogue should have been done, it is unfair to take decision without talking.
