" I am not from madrassa, but I do not see any injustice if boy and girl agrees to marry (do Nikkah) which their parents suggest. It is Muslim family system, do you see any unjust and I will work shoulder to shoulder to voice for it.

Obviously forced marriages (that happens in remote parts of Pakistan) has nothing to do with Muslims, Christians, Buddhist, Hindus, Jews, Animists or for that matter any just person."

arranged marriages are part of islam, as well as incest and breeding with close relatives. That's the reason for the many cases of mental illness, all related also to your brainwashing cult.
