Afghanistan - Forced Wedding

Afghanistan - Forced Wedding

Lal Bibi, wearing a Burqa, sat with her mother, Shebnem, as her grandfather, Haji Rustam, and her father, Haji Gulam, posed for a portrait during an interview with the family...Lal Bibi, an 18 year old Kuchi tribeswoman from Kunduz, recently came out publicly with her family to accuse a man from her area, Khudai Dod of rape, and members of the community, including several members and commanders of the American trained Afghan Local Police force in the area, of facilitating the forced marriage to Khodai Dod, which was performed after one of Ms. Bibi's male relatives was said to have made a transgression against Khudai Dod's daughter. The case has caused controversy in Kunduz, with President Karazai attempting to intervene personally, disbanding the ALP unit involved. However, Kunduz's police chief has still not arrested the ALP commander who abducted and supported the forced marriage, Ishaq Neezami, nor any of the elders or the mullah who authorized the union.
