Sheena Hastings reports. After five of her sisters had already been married off to men they had not chosen, Jasvinder refused to follow the same path. When she resisted marrying a man in India she had only seen in a photo, she was incarcerated for weeks but managed to flee the family home. Six weeks after the year-old had disappeared, she heard that her sister Robina had committed suicide to escape the abusive marriage she had willingly entered into.

When she could bear no further beating, Robina had poured paraffin over herself and lit a match. Even this tragedy did nothing to heal the rift with Jasvinder. She was allowed to visit the house just once to pay her respects to her dead sister, but her mother then made one thing clear: in her eyes, Jasvinder was also dead.

Their parents are now dead, but still her remaining sisters cross the road to avoid her. Jasvinder struggled for years, sometimes living on the streets. She has also written two best-selling books, Shame — which described her own experiences, and Daughters of Shame, detailing the stories of some of the thousands of women who had been helped by the charity.

The stories are a sorrowful catalogue of beatings, rape, kidnapping and torture. Sign up to our daily newsletter The i newsletter cut through the noise Sign up Sorry, there seem to be some issues.

I doubt she knows who I am because my family never spoke about me. But she meets an aunt who tells her that Bugenol has been dead for six years.

Jasvinder suspects the story to be untrue. If alive, though, she may know nothing of me, and reject me. This would be a good day to die! Just ignore them. For the first time I am embracing my real culture. I can see beyond the oppression that my culture brought into my life in England.

The first generation immigrants to the UK became locked into an outmoded mindset. People in the village in India did not have the same feelings about it at all. It was a huge fillip to her that she had been right to believe what she believed about her mother using religion as a tool of oppression.

Jasvinder heard from her sister that her father had been proud of her in many ways, which is perverse, given the situation that had gone on for so many years. The experience also underlined how the work Jasvinder does is about fundamental human rights. One of the key things is the question of those girls who are taken over there and trapped.

I would not have a clue how to get back, so they will be completely isolated in rural villages. The Forced Marriage Unit has to link with us to prevent British subjects from going and to support those who they repatriate. What happens to those we rescue?

No-one knows as no-one tracks them. I suspect many end up going back home and do become repeat victims.
