StoningParliament on Wednesday urged government to investigate and arrest the killers of a girl who was stoned to death by a “desert court” in central Ghor province.

Lawmakers also advised the Ministry of Hajj and Religious Affairs to instruct Mullahs of every mosque around the country to inform people about the principles of Islam regarding the forced marriages, believed to be the biggest cause behind the violence against women.
