The Muslim feminist and women’s rights activist Shaista Gohir summed it up in a tweet:
Forced marriage is criminalised today and the media irritatingly try and link this to British values! This is about human rights!
Yes it is! And human rights are not the monopoly of any one country or any one section of the globe or geographical direction or stage of development or anything else. Skip the patriotism, please, it’s beside the point.
