forced marriage

Forced marriage still happens in the UK because police are scared of being called racist for fighting honour abuse

When I was seven, I travelled to Bangladesh. My father said it would be the first time I would experience his nation and his heritage. It was also the first time I experienced something else: witnessing a girl aged just 17 being forced to marry.

Forced marriage is a horrid custom, entirely different to arranged marriage, which relies on relatives introducing you to potential partners – a sort of vetted version of Tinder where you have the control to say yes or no. But for the young lady in Bangladesh, there was no control.

    Let’s get to the root of the problem here. The only reason forced marriage happens in the UK is because women are allowed to vote and they vote for these barbarians to be allowed into the country.
