“Cultural acceptance does not mean accepting the unacceptable”

-Jasvinder Sanghera CEO Karma Nirvana

If you are worried someone is going to be forced into marriage, it can be hard for you to ask for help, especially if you are worried you are discriminating against someone’s religion. But remember, no religion condones forced marriage. If you were in the position of the victim, you would want help too, so please talk to someone.
