The British government’s forced marriage unit has rescued an eleven year old girl from forced marriage in Dhaka. The unit was set up just over a year ago, and the government were careful to point out that : “Forced marriage affects children, teenagers and adults from all races and religions, including Christians, Hindus, Jews, Muslims and Sikhs.  And it is not solely an issue facing Asian communities. We deal with cases in the Middle East, Western Balkans and Africa.”
