A British court has convicted a woman of trying to trick her teenage daughter into marrying a Pakistani man, according to Mail Online.

The mother, a 45-year-old, has been found culpable by the Birmingham Crown Court of duping her own daughter to go to Pakistan and then tying the knot with a Pakistani there.

Vast majority of abducted girls forced into marriage

This is the first prosecution of its kind with the defendant forcing the girl to marry her against her will and then threatening her with black magic.

The mother was charged with false marriage, perjury and perverting the course of justice. She denied all of the charges was found guilty.

The prosecutor said that the defendant tricked her into believing she was going on a family trip instead.

However, when she reached the country she was given wedding documents by an Imam to sign.

    This verdict is very close to what Islam teaches us. There is no compulsion in “deen” and similarly there is no compulsion in marriage. If a girl is married under duress, the Nikaah is actually invalid. We have several such examples from the early history of Islam where a Nikaah was reverted when it was found out by the Qazi or the Caliph that full consent of both the parties was not taken.
