15-Year-Old Afghan Girl Beheaded For Rejecting Marriage Proposal

Posted by   + Show Post


KUNDUZ, Afghanistan (CBSDC) — Afghan police arrest two men for allegedly beheading a 15-year-old girl after her father turned down a marriage proposal.

According to BBC News, the two men who proposed the arranged marriage and attacked her are relatives of the girl.

“Our investigation shows those who killed her were people who wanted to marry her,” a Kunduz province police official told the BBC.

The father did not want his daughter to get married because she was “too young to be engaged.”

CNN reports the girl was killed near her family’s home while bringing back water.

According to The Washington Post, dozens of Afghan women kill themselves each year in order to avoid arranged marriages.

That is so terrible :( :( 

I know its inappropriate, but i just have to say, i am actually pleased to see that not ALL afghan parents force their children into marriage at a young age.

One way to stop this killing of young girls is to kill the man fast!

No, I don't worry about my daughter being beheaded if she doesn't accept a marriage proposal.  You seriously worry about it?  When was the last time that happened here?

Quoting Aslen:

You dont? Women here are killed for not wanting to marry someone.


Quoting tooptimistic:

I am so thankful that I live here in the states, and I don't have to worry about that happening my me or my daughter.  I can't even imagine being a female over there!!
