    I hope you're a troll... or else you're just someone who is really dumb.

    Arranged marriage is different to forced marriage. So I guess you've been to Pakistan and asked a good proportion of the female population in order to reach that conclusion? :rolleyes:
    Hey, hey! The majority of people who feel the need to comment on such issues almost always have first hand experience and knowledge of such things. :holmes:

    Of course she has been to pakistan, don't be foolish. What kind of silly person would comment on things they don't know about :rolleyes:

    Are you trying to insinuate people's opinions..... are wrong :shock: lol

    No, I can make a decision based on common sense through observing how women are treated in Islamic countries. I beleive that the vast, vast majority of "arranged" marraiges are in fact forced, I simply do not believe women have a choice.

    It's funny because I imagine a DM journalist would try and kill their daughter if they fell in love with a muslim as well.

    So you've been to many Islamic countries and seen first hand what happens in many different marriage proposals? (I'm getting this from your use of the word 'observing')

    Common sense? There is a direct absence of that in your comments :mmm:

    PS your negs are quite obvious to subs and does nothing. Why you even bother to neg a comment that has nothing to do with you is beyond me :sigh: children

    nothings is wrong with them if there is consent. I was merely presenting it to mel0n who held an opposing view. I guess if there was anything for me to disagree with would be the second bit where the family disassociate the girl from their lives. Why? That is just cruel and unnecessary.
    The family disagrees with her as she is persistent in going against Islam, the religion of which they follow. So they are clearly not backing down on her having a relationship with a Non-Muslim and she is clearly not happy with this. Given the circumstances, dissociation is the most appropiate, if both are determined not to change their choice.

    I imagine the scenario as a magnet, the family are North, the daughter is South, both will repel, so separation is ideal.

    No the family is north, she is north-east. She hasn't forsaken Islam, she merely likes someone non-Islamic. She isn't leaving her faith. Everyone sins surely even from an Islamic perspective. So why punish her or disown her because she is sinning or made a mistake, when they also are not perfect.

    Bah, self righteous judgements of people is stupid and such things should not occur especially not resulting in beating or disowning your children. Call me old fashioned, but I believe in loving my family regardless of if they make a mistake and sticking through with them and my religion rather than domestic violence and divestment.

    Although id agree that its extremely stupid to beat up your daughter for going out with somebody you dont approve of, you cannot beat her up nor should you call her a slut.

    Also lets admit it, alot of the people here wouldnt be happy if their daughter/son went out with a muslim.
    I prolly wouldnt be happy tbh

    Lol yeah it is true, I know it is. But it's such a stupid thing to say (she shouldn't have been dating a non Muslim or anyone in the first place - as if that's justification for what has happened [whether verbal or physical]), and the 'tut' sort of adds to it - well that's how it came across to me. Didn't like the tone of the post so I facepalm'ed :ninja:

    Ah true true, I see what you mean. What I really thought was terrible is her being called a "slut". Its like, she went out with 1 guy! Just a date, nothing to imply anything promiscuous. Gosh, this article annoyed me :sigh:

    Lol, maybe that was heat of the moment I dunno (doesn't make it any better, but one of my siblings called me one once :rofl2: but it's all forgotten cos it was all in the anger and stuff [well forgotten as in it doesn't really matter anymore, not forgotten as in I can't remember it happening cos I obvs can :p:])

    And yeah it is an annoying article. I suppose that it could show two things - 1) it could highlight that this might be happening to other Muslim girls but 2) maybe it is in fact a thing that happens to a minority but just because she's an actress it's been brought to light :dontknow:

    I think it goes beyond sinning and making a mistake, if it ends up in a court.

    Islam is a way of life that has only has one path that a Muslim can follow. Sorry it can seem that a Muslim may take a 'self righetous' judgement sometimes as a result because the religion, Islam, is quite intrusive, I agree. Hence, it's a 'struggle' to choose halaal over haraam, something that they do not desire their daughter to lose, so she can be in heaven rather than hell.

    ]Call me old fashioned, but I believe in loving my family regardless of if they make a mistake and sticking through with them and my religion rather than domestic violence and divestment.
    But it isn't a one-off mistake, if she persisted. It essentially becomes an act of disbelief.
