Can you contact me? I'm a guardian journalist in Lahore right now. If you look it up, you'll see I used Misbah throughout.
I'd like to talk to you.


Audrey, well done for ploughing that lone furrow!


Don't forget The Times' stupid coverage.


Btw, thanks. This must have shamed at least one guy who was shooting off his mouth over at the MPAC forum.

And yeh, I heard it here first. ;-)


Sunny, didn't see it at the time, but presumably you mean this


I have always believed that the wicked grandma may have used the sensationalist media to score points with her son-in-law by invoking stereotypes of Misbah's forced marriage.


Well, not just the Leader. The Times also carried some comment pieces on forced marriages and a whole bunch of articles on how even an Asian girl from the outer Hebrides could not escape forced marriages.

News in today's Metro indicated that part of the reason that Misbah prefers life in Pakistan is because of the racial abuse she received in Scotland. Judging by the comments posted on The Scotsman newspaper's website, I wouldn't disbelieve that. See http://news.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=1496&id=1300602006 and their "Misbah" page at http://news.scotsman.com/topics.cfm?tid=1496. Incidentally, I have placed a link to your worthy Rolled Up Trouser page on the FNF home page at http://www.fnf.org.uk/fnfindex.htm because your coverage is edifying.


See this one, v. interesting:
