A Death Trap, Uzma on her return from Pak

Uzma Ahmed is back in India and safe, however she shudders as she shares her ordeal in Pakistan. It may be recalled that Uzma, an Indian woman, alleged, she was forced to marry a Pakistani man at gunpoint. Uzma, emotionally wore down, said "It's easy to enter Pakistan. But it's nearly impossible to leave. Pakistan is a death trap. I've seen women who go there after arranged marriages. They're miserable and living in terrible circumstances. There are two, three, even four wives in every house."
Uzma, returned to India earlier in the day after crossing the Wagah border near Amritsar. She revealed there were many women like her still trapped in the town of Buner, Pakistan. "If I'd remained here for a few days more, I would have died. They lure women from east Asian countries like Phillipines, Malaysia... there're many women like me still trapped there," she alleged.

Uzma profusely expressed her gratitude to the Indian government for rescuing her, "I'm grateful to the Indian High Commission and EAM Sushma Swaraj, who gave me hope and a reason to live. They made me realise that my life was valuable, it was not futile. So I fought hard against my circumstances there."

Uzma, in her early 20's, belongs to New Delhi, is believed to have met and fallen in love with Tahir Ali in Malaysia. Reportedly, Ali forced her into marrying him in Pakistan on May 3, when she was visiting that country.

She petitioned the court on May 12, requesting it to allow her to return home urgently as her daughter from her first marriage in India suffered from thalassaemia - a blood disorder characterised by abnormal haemoglobin production. It was because of the court order that Uzma could finally return to India.
