Model Nadia Menaz

Muslim model, 24, is found hanged after fearing she was going to be forced into arranged marriage by her parents

A model was found hanged after fearing she was about to be forced into an arranged marriage by her Muslim parents, an inquest heard.

Nadia Menaz, 24, was found dead at her home in Oldham, Greater Manchester in May, five months after taking out a court order to stop her family from forcing her to marry.

The mother-of-one had already married husband Umar Rasool in an Islamic ceremony, but her family did not approve of him and the union was not recognised under English law, Oldham Coroner’s Court heard.

      Only forced marriage, but the first rule of forced marriage is …don’t talk about forced marriage.
