"I already shown you that 10% of Pakistani children are born with mental disabilities".

"I don't know, I would ask the many girls escaping this system, but they are all dead, facing mecca, of course".

Susan, land lord system in Pakistan is the source of most social illnesses and crimes. Land Lords are powerful and obey no law. They only wish to save their lands and wealth by having girl to stay within family. And this is injust and my voice is with you on this.

Susan, in urban areas in Pakistan, most marriages now a day do happen outside the families with some of marriages within family as well.

But there is a difference between "arranged marriage" and "marriage within family". I hope you can appreciate.

My love to you.
