1,200 cases of forced marriage annually — one involving a two-year-old child
“More than a third of cases related to Pakistan but the number of Somalian cases has increased by a massive 100 per cent year on year.”
Welcome to Theresa May’s brave, new multicultural Britain. Celebrate diversity! Diversity is our strength! This practice results from the dehumanization and commodification of women in Islam. With polygamy (Qur’an 4:3) and wife-beating allowed (Qur’an 4:34) and women’s testimony (Qur’an 2:282) and inheritance rights (Qur’an 4:11) devalued, and Islamic law making women essentially the possessions of first their fathers and then their husbands, this sort of thing is bound to happen. And in Britain continues its race to chaos and Sharia, there is going to be much, much more of it.
“New figures show scale of forced marriages in the UK – with one child as young as two rescued,” by Lynn Davidson, The Sun, May 11, 2018:
A TOT aged TWO was Britain’s youngest ‘victim’ of forced marriage in Britain last year, shock official figures revealed yesterday.
The Home Office revealed the toddler was one of 1,196 cases dealt with by officials investigating potential forced marriages by expat families in the UK last year.
The oldest involved a 100 year-old pensioner.
The infant was one of 355 children under 18 helped by the Government’s Forced Marriage Unit last year.
One in five cases related to male victims.
More than a third of cases related to Pakistan but the number of Somalian cases has increased by a massive 100 per cent year on year.
The FMU dealt with 1,196 cases last year – a decline of 19 per cent on 2016.
But experts said that did not represent a reduction in the number of forced marriages in Britain….
Since 2012, the facility has provided support in between 1,200 and 1,400 cases per year….
It added: “Forced marriage is a hidden crime, and these figures may not reflect the full scale of the abuse.”
