Forced marriage focus on Pakistani community
A London based women's charity has launched a campaign to raises awareness of forced marriages.
JAN Trust deals with issues concerning minority communities and migrants and has launched 'Mujboor' which means 'forced' in Urdu.
The campaign will be piloted initially in Slough and eventually extended to other parts of the UK.
Forced marriage is an issue that is widespread across all communities, however statistics show that the majority of victims come from a South Asian background.
