Vibrant Diversity: Father jailed after daughter married on 14th birthday to man in his 30’s who raped her

A father has been jailed after his daughter was forced to marry a man in his 30s on her 14th birthday in a ceremony she did not understand.

The girl, who was later sexually assaulted by her ‘husband’, had no idea what was happening during the wedding, which was conducted in Bengali by an imam.

She was ‘pinched’ by a relative at certain points to indicate that she should speak, Manchester Crown Court was told.


No charges are being brought against anyone else.  – Not the Imam? Not the pedophile husband?

Well now, how is that for vibrant diversity?
