Recently, a drama about 10-year-old boy getting married in India has aroused widespread discussion. The story tells the story that a 10-year-old boy married an 18-year-old girl, which has been broadcast to arouse strong dissatisfaction of the public. Child marriage in India is already serious. The broadcast of the drama undoubtedly encourages child marriage in disguise.
A soap opera aired by Indian TV channel recently aroused the audience's anger. It describes a 10-year-old boy who married a 19-year-old girl. Some people are dissatisfied with petitioning the authorities to ban the "strange show" encouraging child marriage, which immediately won the support of nearly 50000 people.
According to the mail today, Sony entertainment television, the most popular channel in India, has been broadcasting the series "pehredar piya ki" every weekend night since July.
However, according to the report, the plot of the series describes a 10-year-old boy married a 19-year-old girl, and there are many absurd plots, which make many viewers feel dissatisfied and angry.
Mansi Jain, an audience member, wrote a petition to upload it to the petition website, asking India's minister of information and broadcasting to ban the series. Within 48 hours, nearly 50000 people immediately joined in for support.
The petition says India has been cracking down on child marriage, but the series encourages child marriage in disguised form, and that it will have a negative impact on society by allowing minor children to play the role of bridegroom in India's marriage ceremony.
Asha bajpai, a professor in the Department of law at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, said the soap opera encouraged, beautified and promoted child marriage, which had a negative impact on society.
It is reported that in India, the legal age of marriage is 21 for men and 18 for women; India's' child marriage law 'imposes a fine of 1500 US dollars and two years' imprisonment on parents who lead the marriage of minors, but child marriage is still popular in many parts of India.
However, the actors who took part in the performance argued that the play was purely entertainment and could not increase the development of child marriage in India.
