The UK’s Forced Marriage Unit can also help people from Commonwealth countries
Forced marriage is an abuse of human rights and a form of domestic violence; sometimes it can also be child abuse. If you are being forced into marriage, or fear it might happen, there are friends who will help you make a master plan to retain or regain your freedom and then work with you to make it happen.
If you are thinking of leaving Islam, be wary, be careful.
Do not tell your Muslim friends or family. The Qur’an commands your death for leaving Islam (4:89 calls for the murder of renegades from the faith), and Muhammad is explicit in a hadith: “If anyone changes his religion, kill him” (Bukhari). Many, many ‘honour killings’ have been committed for “crimes” that are in Islamic law considered far less serious than leaving Islam.
