Web appeal unites jailed Muslim girl with lover

London: A Canadian Muslim girl was allowed to marry her Dubai-based Indian lover after an online appeal for help while being in her fathers captivity in Saudi Arabia for three years,reports The Telegraph.

The girl Nazia Quazi,a Canadian of Indian Muslim origin,was held captive for three years under a Saudi Arabian law which prohibits a girl from marrying against the wish of the nearest male guardian.The girls father Quazi Malik Abdul Gaffar,who worked in Saudi Arabia,used his power under the kingdoms rule to stop her from leaving the country after she went on a visit.

The pair met when they were studying at Ottawa University.The boy Bjorn Singhal,born to a partially Hindu family has a Hindu father and a Muslim mother.

Following a campaign by supporters in Canada that was taken up by the media there,and even Saudi newspapers,he relented and allowed the marriage to take place in Dubai.The girls case was taken up by Human Rights Watch and other groups in Canada after she wrote an online letter appealing for help earlier this year.
