Probably an arranged marriage:

A HUSBAND and his family have been found guilty of murdering a pregnant young wife at her Birmingham home, in the belief that she had been possessed by Jinn spirits.

Naila Mumtaz died in hospital on 8 July 2009, after being found collapsed at her home in Craythorne Avenue. Paramedics were called to the address by family members, however the 21-year-old could not be saved and she was pronounced dead a short time later.

Naila, who was six-months pregnant at the time of her death, died as a result of smothering, according to a post mortem examination, and the trial heard that members of her husband’s family had deliberately caused her death.

The court heard how Naila’s husband, father-in-law, mother-in-law, and her sister-in-law’s husband believed that the young woman, who had arrived in Birmingham some two years earlier from Pakistan, had been possessed by Jinn spirits.

Disgusting.

"Jinn" aka free spirits. Mohammed didn't like "free spirits".
