Cultural Issues

Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

Submitted by A. Ahmado (United Kingdom), Sep 13, 2002 at 22:06

I feel that cultural issues like forced marriages should not be attributed to Islam, but to traditions of Indo-Asia. Unfortunately many Muslims in India and Pakistan have imbibed this tradition (and many others including wedding ceremony rituals) from non-Muslim Asians. Forced marriages described in your article do not exist in my home country at least!
