Forced marriages ‘at record high’ – South Wales Police

ONE WOMAN DESCRIBES ESCAPING FORCED MARRIAGE

“My background is quite modern. No-one had been through it in my family. I was the eldest daughter. I was going to college. I wanted to be a teacher.

One day I came home and my mum was on the phone. She put the phone down and she goes ‘they’ve got someone for you to get married to’. I was like, “me?”.

I was awoken by someone pulling me by my hair. And I felt something cold on my face, like a rifle.

A torch flashed in my face and all I saw was three men. The husband, his brother and another man.

I was going to scream. He said: “You make a sound, and I’ll kill your mother.” I remember physically shaking.

Don’t think you have to do it because that’s exactly what I thought.

They have to find the guts and the courage to speak up and ask for help.”

South Wales Police say they are dealing with the largest number of cases of forced marriage and honour based-violence they have ever seen.

In the past 12 months, the force has dealt with 49 cases of forced marriage, up from a typical 30-35, with new cases almost every week.

The four Welsh forces have been involved in about 60 cases, with four in north Wales in six months.

The figures are released to coincide with International Women’s Day.

A forced marriage, as opposed to an arranged marriage, is where either bride or groom, or both, do not consent to a wedding and are coerced into accepting it.

In many cases they are told they will bring their family shame or dishonour if they refuse.

Ch Supt Neil Kinrade, head of South Wales Police’s communities and partnerships department, said forced marriage was a “hidden harm” among some sectors of the community.

He said: “I’m pleased that we are dealing with the numbers [of cases that] we are, however, we are still only dealing with a small number of the actual incidents and practices that are taking place.

“This, amongst the community, is a hidden harm.

“It goes on and it goes on often unchecked by senior members of the community who know it’s taking place.

“I think it’s less of a problem here than perhaps places like Bradford and London, but nevertheless, it is a problem and it’s something that we need to do something about.”

He said he believed his force had taken a lead role on the issue of forced marriage, drawing up a training scheme that was now used by more than half of UK police forces.

Strategies for helping victims included supplying them with a secret mobile phone if they feared they were being lured to their family’s country of origin as a prelude to a forced marriage.

The force had also set up a “buddy” system where force marriage “survivors” were a role model to those who were now going through the trauma.

‘Complete shock’

Ch Supt Kinrade added: “We do understand the issues and I think we are becoming more effective at dealing with it but what I sense is happening is there is an East v West clash.”

He said young people were being educated in south Wales and were “very westernised” then their families give them the news that they have had a partner chosen for them.

“And that often comes as a complete shock to them, against their intent to go to university, to maybe follow a career path. And that’s where many youngsters are rejecting it,” he added.

“And I think that’s important, because here in the UK – and this is the government and the police stance – people must have their basic human rights of determining their own future.”

Gwent Police said they had 14 incidents recorded under honour-based violence in 2009/10 and a further five in 2010/11.

Dyfed-Powys Police said they had been involved in two cases of forced marriage over the past two years.

More about the Muslim genocide of millions of black Africans using castration.

Arab historian, Ibn Khaldum wrote, “The only people who accept slavery are the Negroes, because of an inferior degree of humanity, their place being closer to the level of animals.”

To make sure these “animals” did not reproduce when they were enslaved in Arab Muslim lands, they used castration on the men, a brutal mutilation that caused the death of millions over 13 centuries. The Quran encourages the enslavement of non-Muslims and it has been estimated that Muslims have enslaved some 17 million black Africans, a practice that continues today.

In Sudan, Muslims in the North still hold tens of thousands of Black African slaves, many of them Christians from the South.

Death Death Death and more Death by the Religion of so called ‘Peace’

Bomb kills 37 at Pakistan funeral

A suicide bomber targeting members of an anti-Taliban militia at a funeral in northwestern Pakistan killed 37 people and wounded at least 45 others on Wednesday, police said.

Police and witnesses said the bomber had slipped into the congregation of more than 200 people attending funeral prayers for the wife of a known anti-Taliban militiaman in Adezai village, near Peshawar city.

Television footage showed bearded elderly men wearing bloodstained clothes rushing from the scene in panic. Prayer caps and slippers lay alongside scattered body parts at the prayer site, which was spattered with blood.

“We have taken 37 dead bodies and 45 injured to the hospital,” Kalam Khan, a senior police officer at the site, told AFP.

The head of the main hospital in Peshawar city, Abdul Hameed Afridi, told AFP that 36 bodies had been received along with body parts, and warned that the death toll could rise, with several people critically injured.

Police officer Mohammad Ijaz Khan confirmed the bomber’s target.

“The target of the bombing was members of the anti-Taliban militia,” Khan said.

“We have sent teams to remove the bodies and shift the injured to the hospital,” he added.

Villagers brought wooden carts to transport the dead and wounded, an AFP reporter at the scene said.

Adezai village is known for clashes between the Pakistani Taliban and pro-government militiamen, local police officer Siraj Ahmed told AFP.

Witness Gul Akbar, 22, told AFP the blast took place as those attending the funeral had lined up to offer prayers.

“The suicide bomber very easily came here and joined the participants. There was not a single policeman to check him,” said Akbar.

Akbar said that the village, close to the lawless tribal region of Darra Adam Khel, had been attacked several times.

“We have had several fights with them (militants) but we cannot stop the suicide attacks. We need the government’s help to stop such attacks,” he said.

Hamyun Khan, a member of the village pro-government militia, complained that the government had not provided enough arms, ammunition and police to deal with the militant threat.

“I was standing in the last row. The blast took place in the middle of the funeral. It was so severe and huge that I still feel deaf,” he said.

“The government and police are responsible for such incidents.”

Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani issued a statement condemning the attack and reiterated the government’s “resolve to root out the cancer of terrorism from every nook and corner of the country”.

Peshawar city lies at the gateway to the country’s remote and militant-infested tribal regions.

The United States has repeatedly urged its key anti-militant ally Pakistan to launch army offensives to combat extremists in the border region, which it says is home to key Taliban leaders.

But Islamabad says its resources are already overstretched by the militant threat across the country.

More than 4,000 people have died in suicide and bomb attacks throughout Pakistan since government forces launched an offensive against militants in a mosque in Islamabad in 2007.

On Tuesday, a car bomb planted by suspected militants at a filling station in the central Punjab region killed 25 people and wounded 154 others.

The last major attack in the northwest hit a packed mosque during Friday prayers last week on the outskirts of Nowshera, close to Peshawar, killing at least 11 people and wounding over 20 others.

Taliban and Al-Qaeda-linked militants launch daily attacks across northwest Pakistan and the tribal belt that Washington has branded the most dangerous place on Earth.

More Innocents Slayed by the Religion of Peace

‘Six shot dead’ in Egyptian religious clashes

Six Coptic Christians were shot dead and at least 45 were injured in religious clashes with Muslims in the Egyptian capital, a Coptic priest told AFP on Wednesday.

“We have at the clinic the bodies of six Copts, all of them shot,” local priest Samann Ibrahim told AFP.

The clashes between Christians and Muslims erupted in the poor working class district of Moqattam late Tuesday after at least 1,000 Christians gathered there to protest the burning of a church last week.

A hospital official had initially reported one person dead late Tuesday.
