Forced marriage campaign rolls out in Croydon
by Chris Madden
A campaign to combat forced marriages is being rolled out in Croydon.
The Mujboor campaign - which comes from the Urdu word meaning forced - is being run by the JAN Trust to highlight the issue amongst minority communities.
Statistics from the FCO Forced Marriage Unit show that most victims of forced marriage come from an ethnic minority community, with the majority of victims from a South Asian background.
