The myth of marriage appropriate age

In the desi culture, men and women are believed to have a marriage appropriate age. You would often hear people say things like, “shadi ki umar nikal jaye gi (the age for marriage will pass).” This idea is deeply rooted in our culture and the minds of people here.

The question is, why is getting married at a young age more important than taking your time and finding and settling with the right person.

Acclaimed singer Haroon Rashid’s past work

Haroon Rashid is a British-born Pakistani singer, songwriter, music producer, composer, director, and social activist. Haroon started his career in music with the acclaimed band Awaz. He and his friends made the first Urdu song titled Janeman to air on MTV Asia.

He later started his solo career and released some of his solo albums. Haroon Rashid has advocated for social activism through his songs. He has raised issues like peace and tolerance. Haroon also created and directed the multiple award-winning children’s TV series called Burka Avenger.

Is it unfortunate that despite the singer’s many accomplishments, all people care about is his “late marriage.”
