A Bad Practice

Snapshots of Change, South Asia

Intercutting dramatisation with interviews, this film explores the illegal but wide-spread practice of BAD in Afghanistan, which allows a murderer’s family to ‘give’ away one of their daughters in marriage to a member of the victim’s family to atone for the crime. Endorsed by mullahs, it’s a practice which condemns young Afghan women to a life of abuse and violence.
