Bride Kidnapping in Kyrgyzstan

Bride Kidnapping in Kyrgyzstan


[MUSIC PLAYING] ANNOUNCER:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: All right. Hi, it’s Thomas. We’re in Bishkek. I’m on a Kok Beru horse. That’s basically polo, but you
play with a dead goat. It is one of Kyrgystan’s
many fine traditions. One of the other traditions, a
little less fun, is kidnapping women and making them
your bride. We’re going to go out of Bishkek
up into the hills and see that happen. Kyrgyzstan is a tiny landlocked
country next to China that spent most of the
last century as part of the Soviet Union. Prior to that it was a wild,
tribally ruled Conan land known for it’s people’s
horsemanship, the mythic hero Manas, and for being
the birthplace of the black plague. The Kyrgyz people celebrated
the end of communism by adopting Islam as the state
religion and getting really into their old national
identity, some parts of which jibed nicely with the modern
times, others of which didn’t. BRIDE TO BE:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: Bride kidnapping
is a traditional way of getting married that
supposedly dates back to the horse days. How it works is a guy wants to
marry a girl, he gets a few of his friends together, they grab
the girl off the street, then they drive her back to
his place, and his mom and aunts try to convince her that
marrying their son is the right move– even if he’s a total stranger. We’d heard a young east Kyrgyz
villager named Kubanti was in the market for a bride. So we offered up our services
as wedding photographers. KUBANTI:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [MUSIC PLAYING] UNCLE SULTAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: So far
this is very similar to a Western wedding. You just have all the family
together, favorite uncle kind of holding court at the
table, a lot of food. It’s hard to reconcile this
hospitality with the kind of potential violence that’s
about to happen. BRIDE TO BE:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: Bride
kidnapping is not a fringe custom. In rural areas, nearly half of
all marriages result this way. BRIDE TO BE:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: And while it’s
technically illegal to kidnap your wife, not many Kyrgyz cops
realize this, and even fewer care. BRIDE TO BE:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] FEMALE SPEAKER 1:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] RUSSELL KLEINBACH: There
are two laws that make kidnapping illegal. And even in cases where the
couple love each other. I know a number of
cases where the woman said, I was kidnapped. I loved the man. I wanted to marry him, but I did
not want to be kidnapped because it’s very humiliating to
be physically captured and forced into a car. BRIDE TO BE:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] RUSSELL KLEINBACH: The majority
of the police and officials in the country don’t
even know it’s illegal, or if they do, they believe it’s
an old tradition. TYNCHTYK:

[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: Back at Kubanti’s
place, the groomsmen pop a final squat to coordinate
the snatch. GROOMSMAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: We’re planning
the kidnapping right now. How long have you guys
been planning this? KUBANTI:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: Who’s the girl? Is it somebody you’ve
been friends with? Somebody you know or
is it somebody, like, your family knows? KUBANTI:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [SCREAMS AND MOANING] THOMAS MORTON: While bride
kidnapping is largely a rural phenomenon, there’s
been a spike in cities in recent years. Generally attributed to
the success of Ernest Abdyjaparov’s 2007 pro-kidnapping film, Boz Salkyn. ERNEST:

[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] -[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] ERNEST:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [MUSIC PLAYING] MALE SPEAKER 1:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] RUSSELL KLEINBACH: Spousal
abuse is higher in kidnapped marriages. Divorce rate is higher in
kidnapped marriages. There’s a higher percentage of
women who go through that process who wind up rejected
by families and going into prostitution. And suicide rates are higher
among women who are kidnapped. ABDYSHOVA ZYINAGUL:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: With the plan
locked in place and the bridal yurt set up for the reception,
all that was left for Kubanti and his pals was to go
secure the bride. KUBANTI:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] UNCLE SULTAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: Kubanti’s uncle
gave the boys one final good luck blessing, and they all
piled into the get-a-wife van. Good luck, guys. GROOMSMAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: We’re going to
go to the, I guess the local watering hole, like, literally
watering hole. That’s where they’ve arranged
for the friend of the bride to be to capture her. It’s a little animal kingdom
picking off your bride at the watering spot. [MUSIC PLAYING IN FOREIGN
LANGUAGE] KUBANTI:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: I feel OK about
this right now just because this guy evidently knows her. In this case, it’s just kind of
a weirder form of popping the question, it feels like. At the same time, it’s an
extremely troubling institution. KUBANTI:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] GROOMSMAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [MUSIC PLAYING IN FOREIGN
LANGUAGE] GROOMSMAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: So this is the
girl’s friend who’s going to help them lure out the bride. They’re negotiating with
her right now. They’re just planning
how to do it. GROOMSMAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: They’re just
going to grab her? There’s not like a blanket
or anything? MALE SPEAKER: No. THOMAS MORTON: OK. Pretty basic. KUBANTI:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: Oh, my god. That got very real in a hurry. NURGUL:

[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [CRYING] FEMALE SPEAKER 2:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: From here on,
it’s up to the women in the family to get the girl to put on
the bridal scarf and agree to the wedding, a process
that can go on for hours or even days. FEMALE SPEAKER 2:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: OK. Thank you. This is a very confusing
scene. FEMALE SPEAKER 2:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: I think
the girl has accepted what happened. And I don’t know if she was
just putting up resistance because that’s what you’re
supposed to do, or if she was genuinely freaked out. She’s eating cookies now though
and accepted a candy. Which I did too, which I don’t
know how I feel about that. FEMALE SPEAKER 2:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] ERNEST:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] FEMALE SPEAKER 2:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: Well, everybody’s
all smiles. I hope she likes her groom. [MUSIC PLAYING] THOMAS MORTON: Is this what
a wedding is normally like around here? UNCLE SULTAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: Well, why
do they do that? If the families already know
each other and are fine with it, why the kidnapping? Where does that come from? UNCLE SULTAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] RUSSELL KLEINBACH: In
Kyrgyzstan, tradition stands even above religion, I think,
in terms of importance, and religion above law. The old tradition of Kyrgyzstan
is the Manas Epis. Manasa is the authority. It’s a kin to being in the
Midwest according to Bible. If there’s a Kyrgyz tradition,
it should be in Manas. Manas is Kyrgyz, Kyrgyz
is Manas. And there’s no stories
of kidnapping in that oral tradition. It’s a violation of Islam. It’s a violation of the law. And it’s pretty clear that prior
to the Soviet period, it was very uncommon and was not
an acceptable traditional practice, even though it
happened sometimes. [MUSIC PLAYING IN FOREIGN
LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: God. Today just gets rougher
and rougher. So everything worked out? KUBANTI:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: OK. It looked like she was fighting pretty hard in the van. I’m surprised you aren’t,
like, more beat up. KUBANTI:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: Did she know who
she was marrying once she got in the car? Did she know it was you? It could have been any
of those guys, right? KUBANTI:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: It was clear. I mean, you’re clearly– Also, you’re wearing
the nicest clothes. And you knew her, and you’d
been dating her. So it makes sense. What happens next? Do you have to go
get her family? KUBANTI:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: So the bride’s
been napped, sheep’s been slaughtered. I guess we’re really getting
into the thick of the wedding right now. It kind of occurs to me that compared to American groomsmen. Kyrgyz groomsmen have
a rough job. All anybody ever complains
about having to stage a bachelor party or, you know,
buy gifts, or wear a suit. You don’t have to kidnap a
girl or cut open a sheep. God knows what else is
going to happen. So you’re the grill
master here? What is that furry part? Is that lungs? GROOMSMAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: Stomach. OK. Could you have gotten
in trouble for this? I mean, if like a policeman or
something had seen you, like, could they have like
stopped you? GROOMSMAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: And then they’d
be fine with it. OK. What’s the best part
of the sheep? Those floppy ears– Hey, you. [MUSIC PLAYING] THOMAS MORTON: Once the girl has
finally said yes, the men from the groom’s family go over
to the bride’s house and tell her parents, sorry, we
kidnapped your daughter. Is that OK? Unsurprisingly, this process
can also take a while. The men bring tons of
gifts and food to smooth things over. So hopefully the bride’s family
will think of it less as losing a daughter and more
as gaining a sheep. This is the bride’s family–
or bride to be. So evidently they aren’t
allowed in yet to see the family. So what’s happening right now? Why do you have to wait? UNCLE SULTAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: OK. That was short. [MUSIC PLAYING IN FOREIGN
LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: I’m starting to
get a little suspicious that the bride’s family may
have known about this ahead of time. This is a pretty nice spread
to put out on, like, an hour’s notice. MALE SPEAKER 3:

[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] FEMALE SPEAKER 3:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: How are you
feeling about all this? SOIROGUL:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: The custom, the
taking her up off the street, is that how people got married
when you were little? SABIRA:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [MUSIC PLAYING] THOMAS MORTON: Everyone kept
telling us how old and hallowed the practice of
bride kidnapping was. But if it’s not even in Manas,
the country’s national epic, how old actually is it? RUSSELL KLEINBACH: If we go back
to the 19th century, when you had tribal groups, they
would go through villages, and they would steal horses,
and cattle, and women. So there is a tradition
of stealing. But it would produce a real
conflict between tribes and was not an acceptable
traditional practice. And all the evidence shows
that kidnapping was on an increase from the latter period
of the Soviet period. And then it continued to
increase at the end of the Soviet period. The Soviets said, first of
all, we’re going to stop marriages of young girls before
the age of 15 or so. We’re going to now send both
boys and girls to high school and college. We collectivized the wealth so
there’s no money for bride price and a dowry. So now the young people
are getting older before they get married. They go off to the university. And they may come back
and say, I found someone I’d like to marry. And the parents say no, we’re
arranging a marriage for you in the village. So she might go back to the
university, or he, talk to the boyfriend or girlfriend and
says, is there any legitimate way we can get married against
our parents wishes. You say, well, I will kidnap
you, take you to my home, keep you overnight. Then they will consider you an
unclean girl, and so they will have to let you marry me. And I think strangely enough,
kidnapping is a response to the Soviets bringing about more equality for men and women. UNCLE SULTAN:

busy doing vodka shots with mayonnaise chasers, the local
imam stopped by the wedding yurt to make the marriage
official. Did you know you were about
to get married? NURGUL:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: How do
you feel right now? NURGUL:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: Did you
want to marry him? NURGUL:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: You accepted

you fight more? NURGUL:

[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [MUSIC PLAYING] THOMAS MORTON: Ah. It’s got kind of a Western
flair to it. Wow. That’s very shiny. The wedding itself
was yesterday. But the celebration is today. I feel we’re going to class
ourselves up a little bit. Yeah. Suits here are very
shiny, though. I think this might
be the winner. Minimally shiny, still shiny
enough to go to a wedding in. I think I found my suit. We were really getting into the
spirit of the festivities, which was kind of unsettling
considering we had just seen a girl get abducted
off the street. Yeah. Yeah. This is definitely it. BUBUSARA RYSKULOVA:
[SPEAKING RUSSIAN] THOMAS MORTON:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] UNCLE SULTAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: How
are you doing? Hi. We got some cooking ware
for the bride to be. And then for Uncle Sultan,
we got some smokes. UNCLE SULTAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: Yeah. You’re welcome. Very welcome. Everybody’s in t-shirts
and jeans. I just bought this suit. OK. Hey. KUBANTI:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: This is for
you and your wife. KUBANTI: Thank you. THOMAS MORTON: Yeah,
of course. Working on the intestines
there. [FOREIGN LANGUAGE]. THOMAS MORTON: Last night we
stayed up late with the bride’s family. We drank a lot. We ate probably all
of a sheep. And now we’re back to drinking
and eating fried bread. Oh, I’m sorry. [FOREIGN LANGUAGE]. Uncle Sultan brought us into
the yurt, and we kind of suspected this was why. UNCLE SULTAN:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: More vodka. [MUSIC PLAYING] THOMAS MORTON: So right over my
left shoulder is the sheet from their wedding
night, basically. If she’s a virgin, she’s going
to bleed on the sheet. And then they take it out. And that’s proof to everybody. And they hang it. It’s kind of weird. You know, everybody put sort
of a premium on virginity. I never really got that shit. But there it is, bride
is a virgin. Double good happiness for
the bride and the groom. [MUSIC PLAYING] SABIRA:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] THOMAS MORTON: Traditionally,
the day after a Kyrgyz wedding, the bride has to prove
yourself to her new family, especially the women. So it’s kind of like a hazing,
sort of, almost of women. Still kind of not sure how to
feel about this whole thing. I kind of get the impression
it might be the case of one family not having lost a
daughter so much as another gaining a scullery maid. She seems happy, says
she’s happy. NAZGUL:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] SABIRA:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] FEMALE SPEAKER 6:
[SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE] [MUSIC PLAYING] THOMAS MORTON: We’re not going
to pretend to be experts on Manas or the finer
points of Islam. But for all the justifications
we heard, it seems like the real reason men kidnapped women
in Kyrgyzstan is the same reason they do questionable
stuff anywhere, the same reason a dog
licks its balls– because they can. Which of course, is the
oldest and shittiest reason in the world. Congratulations. [INAUDIBLE]. Thank you. [FOREIGN LANGUAGE]. I appreciate it. [FOREIGN LANGUAGE], thank you. [MUSIC PLAYING IN FOREIGN

  1. Their names are not muslim this is how you follow a religion and not the place where it was originated. Thank god some sensible islamic country.

  2. Vodka shots with MAYONNAISE CHASERS?! I pressed pause on this video, set my phone down on the passenger seat and literally walked out of my car in disgust.

  3. People got to understand TRADITION AND RELIGION or two totally different things… people make a RELEGION LOOK BAD BY ADDING THEIR OWN STUPID TRADITION

  4. I imagine that saying no to a wedding is even worse than saying yes after all both families agreed to it, i imagine that saying no would displease her family alot and she would get a bad reputation in the community, that's manipulation at its best

  5. "It's kinda weird," the calicky incel vice reporter says, ´to lust after virgins, he didn't know they still exist out in the wilds. Can u imagine giving up hope on love the way he has. It isn't even on his horizon. How defeated, and he is premoting his self loathing pathogen. He is striken from the gene pool but will he accept a high protein diet and gladiator school, to release him from the soy-pos?

  6. Thank God such shit doesn't happens in India in the name of culture and tradition.
    If such happens, then you get all the feminists running behind you abusing you till you are arrested and banged up in jail.
    If this so-called culture would take place with a girl in India, the entire family of the boy is either thrashed up in public or banished from the community
    Those who are seen saying 'Let's pray to God…' are the real sponsors of female abuse.
    In India, it would have been 'Let's pray to God or else the media and feminists would running after us, getting us arrested'

  7. "They put a premium on virginity" In rural Kentucky when someone gets married the next question is "So when's the baby due?"

  8. i'm not a cunty vegan or anything, but at least when you slaughter an animal you have to blindfold them first make them stand or sit calmly, then go ahead and cut their throat, wait until the spirit leaves the body, but this is some unnecessary BS!

  9. commits a crime

    Police: “Hey stop right there that’s illegal!”

    “Oh, it’s for a wedding”

    Police: “Aight that’s fine, you can go.”

  10. THIS is totally a human rights violation, but this FUCKtard human beings CAlled it CULTURE/TRADITION,, basically u can fuck and marry anyone , u just have to kidnap , no matter if ur UGLY. smelly., or what, u just have to kidnap the girl u want , ,, FUCKING TRADITION , fucking humans, what i hate the most is that the parents cant even do anything or the government .. just imagine a smelly ugly motherfucker will kidnap the girl he wants and fuck her, where is the rights for the women ryt there? no wonder the westerners bomb you coz u have shitty people and shitty SO CALLED "TRADITIONS"

  11. i want to go there and bomb all that old fucking people that gather and wait for the kidnapping,
    ..the hardest part here is , they all laughing and giggling after the girl was kidnap ,, then the girl friend that help the kidnapers is trying to help her to escape , wtf ,,,its really a stupid country with stupid human bein

    KIDNAPPER : God help us..
    GOD : Fuck you!

  12. The most incredible thing about this & similar video's is always the same and it's not the video content. As usual It's these Comments & their obnoxious authors that turn up like flies to dogshit, debating a culture, religion, practice, law or <insert subject here> that they know little to nothing about, other than a few minutes of youtube, yet here they are dazzling themselves with their own conceited bullshit.

  13. I married a Kazakh wife and the culture was hard to understand for a long time and all this stuff is the same all over Central Asia, my end result after all of it was people using culture and tradition this and that to profit from it and get things for free and once I realized it I said the hell with it and everyone else bc its a bunch of bullshit. Constant gift exchanges, money this or that, it gets tiring its not 1900 anymore, people got bills and all.

  14. 6:05 Hey asshole! How about just getting married normally?! My people do this shit too and it still pisses me off! Fuck your culture and Fuck my culture too!

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3021500/You-never-parents-Man-21-kidnapped-15-year-old-girl-tried-force-traditional-Hmong-marriage.html

    Basically that link there is an example of someone trying this in the US. I can't stand what our people used to do. Some people still follow this back in old country and it sometimes shows up on either facebook or youtube. Also, an amendment to what they say in the link: at the very bottom, I call bullshit on wives being allowed to return as if they do return they are shamed by the whole community and her parents will scorn her more often than not. Furthermore, sometimes parents will literally sell their daughter away to the richest man around.

  15. I tried to kidnap one Kyrgzstan girl,but she was too fat/too heavy.I couldnt lift her off the ground,so i had to put her back down and look for something a little easier to manage…..

  16. What makes me angry is that the VICE conspire with them for ratings, the VICE pretend to be in tears but they are really happy because its for the rating..

  17. I think its justified if the girl kinda know the guy like this case, even without the kidnapping they're kinda incage i think this is the right way, the only thing that is cruel is that you might have pick a not so good man.

  18. I am so beyond confused…I don't even know where to start with this. Kidnapping anyone is beyond cruel and inhumane. Staging a kidnapping as a tradition for marriage is just as problematic, even if the bride is okay with it. How are the acts of kidnapping and trying to force someone into marriage symbolic of anything even remotely positive? The assertion that saying no and fighting against being kidnapped is representative of innocence and purity is twisted and predatory. For anyone to actually prefer to put a girl or woman through all of that trauma/anxiety, rather than reaching an agreement with a woman who uses her autonomy to give consent, makes me feel uncomfortable and upset on so many different levels… Like I said, I don't even know where to start.

  19. I'd rather be a virgin my whole life than get a woman this way, violating her freedom and breaking her heart. At least I could still call myself a man.

  20. What the bro they’re acting like girls are Pokémon you can’t do that idc that it’s a tradition you gm don’t kidnap someone smh

  21. How can u do something like that! Thats ignorance
    The ignorance of pagan arabs!
    They buried their daughters alive and had no shame before islam
    They went around the kaaba naked!

    The Girls are humiliated! This is not Islam bitches!

    Dumbass Kyrgyzstan choose for yourselves other religion not islam!
    You people are shitting islam and people have begun to believe that islam is a dumbass shitty religion!

  22. This is not tradition! This is ignorance! Your dumbass tradition will lead you to hell

    The jews had tradition made for themselves their religion hard by not doing anything on sabbath and also following murderer fathers!
    When jesus came to them to break that tradition they tried to kill him but was saved! Same thing with Muhammad pbuh
    The pagan arabs tradition to worship idols and go naked around the kaaba and burry their daughters alive!
    Muhammad pbuh told them and preached to them to stop and start worshipping the Lord and God of Abraham! The pagans were gnashing their teeth with the intent to humiliate him And they tried to kill him in front of his home But Allah Saved him!

    leave this tradition and follow the way of Muhammad pbuh SAAWW

    This will surely lead you to hell you dumbass cowboys of kyrgyz

    I am speaking to the villagers not to whole Kyrgyzstan!

  23. This has got to be one of the most fucked up things I’ve ever seen what a bunch of sick twisted fucks man burn in hell you desperate fuckwits

  24. This is not islam.. This is. A stupid dumb and wrong thing they have made up themselves saying this is what their elders did

  25. No ijab qabul? Is it consider they really get married the right way? Got me confuse here. i know it is wrong to steal from others and Allah forbid this kind of method. Only He know the answer… Wallahualam

  26. i remember when my relatives went there their daughter was kidnapped but my relatives daughter being a savage shot the guy point blank with a pistol

  27. These niggas just horny and can’t get bitches. So they hide behind Culture and tradition. That’s bullshit. I’ll be shooting these niggas gunning them down

  28. Men NEVER STOPS TO USE WOMEN AS MERE COMMODITIES be it any society in any corner of the WORLD, BE IT IN ANY GIVEN time!!!

  29. In Bihar (INDIA), it used to be the other way around. Instead of bride being kidnapped, it was the groom. Several poor families ,unable to pay hefty dowry for their daughter's marriage would resort to this. Now it's not done anymore.

  30. 19:00
    Kyrgyzstan should be nuked from the surface of the planet and all people who do this, gassed. It just gets worse a few minuted after.
