    How do people become so stupid? Is he not aware that Islam clearly states that a woman cannot be forced into marriage? This is what happens when you don’t dump anti-Islamic “cultural luggage” from your life. 70 years is enough time for our society to stamp out all residual traces of an evil exploitative culture from a foreign land which especially targets women.
    Hope they execute this guy. Recommend
