Forced wedding: The clip was filmed in Kazakhstan's Akmola region, where such abductions are a custom

In most countries, bride kidnapping is considered a sex crime. Local women's rights activist Anfisa Zuyeva, 30, called the practice 'barbaric'.

'No wonder people think we're backward, ' she said.

The video shows the screaming girl dragged from the car and along a special bridal carpet towards her suitor's house as guests in smart wedding dress throw confetti over her.

She makes one final effort at resistance at the door to the home, pushing back on the doorframe, before a crowd of men and women finally hustle her inside.

Barbaric: The bride-to-be makes one last attempt at resistance before she is bundled through the door

Shockingly, such bride kidnapping, where a young woman is taken by force to the home of a man who wants to marry her, is said to be on the rise in Kazakhstan.

The groom-to-be hires relatives and friends who use deception or force to get the girl into their car. This can include offering to give her a lift, or dragging her off the street and tying her up in a sack.

Once inside the car she is driven to the man’s home where one of his female relatives prepares a special neckerchief called an Oramal which the girl must accept to show her consent to marriage.

The practice is an ancient custom in the region and there are various formalities to go through. In some circumstances the abduction can even be consensual.

Where it isn't, perpetrators are rarely dealt with by the legal system.

This latest video has been rounded on by critics who say the practice must stop.

Ms Zuyeva, who has campaigned against the tradition, said: 'This is a barbaric and evil practice that forces young girls into loveless marriages with men they hardly know.

'Often the families of the victims agree because the groom pays them a lot of money.

'But it is an outdated and horrific tradition which has no place in modern Kazakhstan.

MPs have now called for it to be made illegal, pointing out over 60 per cent of adults and 74 per cent of teenagers had either been victims of kidnappings or knew people who were.

What is a non-banking sector?

It is a way for say an ETF to indicate that there are no banks in it's Portfolio. During the recession the banks were underperforming the SP so badly that people were not buying ETF's / ETN's that owned banks. So the marketing people in the ETF business came up with a bunch of SP index funds that were non-banking sector SP indexs. Which meant they held all SP sectors except the banking sector.
