NCW against ‘Mut'ah’ marriage

New Delhi: The National Commission for Women (NCW) has asked External Affairs Ministry to issue instructions to all embassies to ensure that ‘Mut’ah’ or short-term marriage is stopped totally and those indulging in such practices are dealt with strictly. 

NCW chairperson, Poornima Advani, addressing a press conference on July 13 in New Delhi said that consulates should give instructions to the visiting foreign nationals to ensure that they abide by law of the land and do not promote sex tourism.

She referred to a case of marriage of a minor girl without her consent with a Yemeni national at Dombivili in Thane district of Maharashtra. The girl got suspicious when she saw the groom giving Rs 10,000 to her aunt who had organised the alliance. She raised an alarm and reported the matter to the police station. Four of those involved in the racket were arrested and two are absconding. 

The enquiries of NCW revealed that agents got young poor girls married to foreign nationals and in exchange got a fee.
