A London doctor is telling a horrific story of how she was tricked by her family to return to Bangladesh, drugged, put into a psychiatric hospital, and then married to a stranger. The Muslim family felt that Dr. Humayra Abedin was too independent and living a non-traditional life as a physician.
Dr. Abedin was allegedly given a drink with sleeping pills and kept locked away while the family looked for a husband. When she used her cellphone to call friends, it was taken away and sent to a psychiatric hospital. She was able to send the message “My life is in danger, please save me.”
She was forced to marry a man who she met only a few hours before. A Bangladeshi judge eventually ordered her release and return to England.
