Tune in as Pazhvak covers one of the ongoing issues in Iran and many other contries under Islamic sharia laws. In late September 2013 another law was passed by the Islamic legislative assembly in Tehran that makes it legal for adopting parents to marry their adopted children. Legal age of marriage in Iran could be as young as 9 years old for girls and 13 for boys.  Girls would likely be the first ones impacted by this law as their adopting fathers can marry up to four wives and have an unlimited number of temporary marriages.

Inspired by the criticism that's ongoing in Iran regarding this new law, the Pazhvak radio program will be covering this issue.
