The Daily Mail reports:
Nadia Menaz, 24, was found dead at her home in Oldham, Greater Manchester in May, five months after taking out a court order to stop her family from forcing her to marry.
...In December last year, Ms Menaz took out a forced marriage protection order at the Family Court in Manchester against her father Sabir Hussain, 60, her mother Ruksana Kousar, 55, and three of her eight siblings. According to government guidelines, the legislation protects women if they are being threatened with a forced marriage or are already within a forced marriage.
Menaz had already gotten married in an Islamic ceremony to a man named Uman Rasool a few years prior. They had a child. Menaz's parents, however, did not approve of the marriage and because it was not legal according to British law, they were reportedly pressuring her to leave Rasool and force her into another marriage:
On May 1, the day she died, she had argued with Mr Rasool, who then went to see his family and visit their local mosque, the court heard.
Ms Menaz had sent him a text saying she was going to hang herself, and when he returned home at around 6.30pm he found his wife's body.
Police investigations ruled out third party involvement and a post-mortem examination confirmed a cause of death as hanging. There were also wounds to Ms Menaz's thigh, which appeared to be self-inflicted.
When questioned by Mr Nelson at the hearing, Mr Rasool agreed that Ms Menaz's family 'weren't particularly happy with the fact of their relationship'.
'I was aware of the forced marriage protection order,' he added. 'She was being treated in hospital because of her depression and her life.
Once again, western feminism has failed a Muslim woman in Britain. Last year 1,400 rape victims of a Muslim prostitution ring were brushed under the carpet by British police, politicians and feminists. How many more Muslim women and victims of radical Islam will suffer at the hands of a multiculturalist agenda?
