Dr. Humayra Abedin was leading a quiet life in London, far from her native Bangladesh, when she got a call that her mother was gravely ill. That, it turns out, was a lie. Her parents, claiming she's mentally ill (since she's dating a Hindu), have held her captive since August and are attempting to force her to marry. A British lawyer, in cooperation with the British government, is attempting to use the Forced Marriage Act to free her. Bangladeshi courts have given her parents until December 14th to bring their daughter to court to prove she is mentally ill. [Daily Mail, Huffington Post]
