Marriage of a minor

THIS is apropos of the news item, ‘Jirga orders marriage of four-year-old village girl’ (Aug 31). I thought these jirgas were declared illegal but apparently the government is unable to enforce its writ even in Jacobabad.

However, what is really surprising is that no one in the Federal Bureau of Revenue ever notices the wealth of the people involved.

In the instant case, the jirga imposed Rs400,000 fine on Jawed Brohi.

Mind you, these people never pay taxes, ostensibly on the grounds of poverty, yet they are able to pay huge amounts as fines.

Shouldn’t the tax mandarins visit the place and recover the much-needed taxes from these people? Or will they go on punishing those stupid citizens who pay taxes honestly?
