Dishonoring 3rd rank for Rajasthan with over 2L of child marriages

- April 21, 2015
This auspicious Day turns the evil for many little children. JWB publishes horrifying statistics of child marriages to make you aware how aggravated the situation is. In 2011 there were over 27 lakh children in the 10-14 age group, overwhelmingly girls, who were married. Rajasthan keeps the 3rd dishonoring rank in this data with over 2 lakh married kids. Recently government has undertaken measures to prevent child marriages ahead of Akha Teej which falls on April 21. However, as this report suggests we have to go a long way together to stop the social evil.
