It is a very old tradition that still exists in many countries. Arranged marriages are not limited to muslim or islamic culture, many countries and cultures have and still practice arranged marriages. In Islam the couple has to agree to the marriage there is no compulsion. Silence from the bride, however, does mean she consents, so if she is against the arranged marriage she should "speak now or forever hold her peace".
