Dukhtar, an incredible story of a mother to save her daughter!

           Forced marriage occurs when a man or woman is coerced by their family or other persons in authority, to marry, without any regard for their consent.   A forced marriage may involve many forms of oppression and abuse such as threats, emotional blackmail, fraud, and even bribes.  Emotional and social coercion is often experienced as threatening by the individual, as distress may lead to accepting the decision that is against  one’s will.
