Christian Woman in Pakistan Wants to Pursue Annulment of Forced Marriage

One Pakistani Christian woman was forced to marry a Muslim man after he kidnapped her in July of 2015. Fouzia Bibi was in the home of Muhammad Nazir for months until she was enabled, by the power of God, to escape captivity in October of 2016.

Wilson Chowdhry of the British Pakistani Christian Association told The World View that Fouzia wants them to “pursue” an annulment of the marriage.

“After hearing about the new piece of legislation that came out in December of last year Fouzia Bibi has asked us to pursue an annulment of her marriage; which could in essence become a landmark case that frees her and not only her but could in essence be the trigger for the release of many other Christian girls who have forcibly kidnapped and forced into Islamic marriage in the same manner.”

The prosecutor said, “To use words translated in 1611 in a very different context, in the context of modern British society, must be considered to be abusive and is a criminal matter” – especially the notion that Jesus is God in the flesh.
