The age of marriage of girls has now been increased from 18 to 21. It was a proposal that has been approved by the Cabinet. However, as soon as the approval is given, there has also been an uproar. Muslim MLAs have objected to the approval of the proposal from the Modi cabinet. Abu Azmi was the first name on the list and now Jharkhand Minister Hafizul Ansari has also objected to it. He says, 'Girls should not be more than 18 years of age.'
Last Wednesday alone, the Union Cabinet approved a proposal to increase the legal age of marriage of girls from 18 years to 21 years. As soon as the proposal was approved, many Ministers came out against it. The Bill is now said to be introduced in the same Parliament session. Let me tell you that as soon as the bill is enacted, the legal age of marriage of boys and girls in the country will be the same.
Earlier, Samajwadi Party leader and Maharashtra MLA Abu Azmi had said, "Just as someone is cremated immediately after his death, he should get married at the earliest even when he is an adult. At the same time, he said, 'But now an 18-year-old girl can't get married. Will she no longer be sensible at the age of 18, mature at the age of 21? He also alleged that malnutrition is on the rise. Corruption is taking place in the name of Beti Bachao Beti Padhao. All this is being done to hide all this.''
Abu Azmi further said, "If a girl's marriage is fixed in 18 years and is no longer allowed and the relationship is not found in the long run, who will be responsible for it. He also said, "I have heard that under the British rule, many people in Kerala were forced into bogies. People had started drinking blood and urine there. Similarly, there is a natural need. If they are not completed at the right age, it can increase crime.''
