As Muslim immigration increases, forced marriage has become increasingly commonplace in the UK. No civilized society should tolerate this. This is the poison fruit of the failed government of Theresa May and her disastrous, suicidal policies regarding Muslim migration. The one irreducible fact here is the one that no one in Britain will dare to say: the UK has a problem with forced marriage because of the Muslims who live there. It never had a problem with forced marriage before it admitted massive numbers of Muslims. Now it faces a choice: will it become a Sharia society or remain a free society? It is rapidly choosing the former.
“Forced marriage: Mum guilty of making daughter wed older man”, BBC News, May 22, 2018:
A mother who forced her daughter to marry a relative almost twice her age has been convicted in the first successful prosecution in England.
The woman duped the 18-year-old into travelling to Pakistan to wed the man, who was 16 years her senior.
Years before the ceremony, the girl was entered into a “marriage contract” with the man and became pregnant aged 13.
A jury at Birmingham Crown Court found the mother guilty of two counts of forced marriage.
The court heard the girl had an abortion upon her return to the UK, with her GP reporting his concerns to social services.
Prosecutors said her mother “made all the right noises” to suggest her daughter and the man were just “two teenagers who had sneakily had sex” after she was referred.
‘Burn passport’ threat
Just after her 18th birthday, the girl was tricked into travelling to Pakistan again under the pretence of a family holiday.
Once there, the court was told, the girl sobbed as her mother forced her to sign marriage papers.
Giving evidence during the trial, she recalled crying as her mother led her by the arm to meet her husband-to-be.
“I didn’t want to get married to him,” she said.
When the daughter protested against the marriage, jurors heard, her mother threatened to burn her passport and assaulted her.
The girl “has been let down badly by her mother, whose love and attention she craves,” prosecutor Deborah Gould said.
The mother, who cannot be named for legal reasons, looked shocked as she was convicted of forced marriage and of deceiving the victim to go to Pakistan in order to enter into a false marriage.
She was also convicted of perjury, after she lied about the incident in the High Court….
