It was previously reported that the government denounced the company’s attempt to promote child marriage as the practices violate the rights of children.

"Getting married at a very young age is against the purpose of the marriage law itself, which is supposed to bring benefit to the married couple," said the Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Culture Muhadjir Effendy in a statement last week. 

Child marriage violates Law No. 16/2019 on Marriage. It mentions that girls and boys can marry with parental consent at 19 years.

Muhadjir further added that getting married at a young age would harm the children and the nation's future generations.
