A culture that supports kidnapping of their children, for any reason, is sadly warped. To support the kidnapping of someone else's daughter/grand daughter is to condone kidnapping of your own.

I guess I'm just naive. I don't understand why any man would want to kidnap and force a woman into marriage. Are these women known to the kidnappers or do men just go out and take a stranger to force into marriage? Marrying a stranger for any reason is beyond my ability to comprehend. I am glad that there are steps being taken to stop this practice.

I'm guessing it is the Muslims who are kidnapping others as they do this in other countries in which they are the majority including Egypt and Pakistan.

Kyrgyzstan is a multiethnic country populated with people of various religions. Different religious confessions coexist peacefully on the territory of Kyrgyzstan. Today Sunni Muslims comprise almost 83% of the population. The Christians (15%) is the second largest religious confession. They are Orthodox Russians, as well as Germans, who are traditionally divided into Catholics and Lutherans. A small percentage of the population professes other religions such as Buddhism and Judaism.

What a terrible way to treat anyone, stripping them of their dignity, their rights and their choices! What does this say about the men who are doing this? And what does it say about a Government that condones this kind of abuse by not doing anything about it.......Shame on all of them! Thank you for the post, noted and signed.
