Assalam o Aleikum
I wanted to ask you, if the father of a woman can deny her nikkah becaus he doesnt agree with the nationality of the man. The woman and man want the nikkah and they fit together perfectly.
I also want to know if there are any alternatives, if the father doesnt allow the daughter to marry because of unislamic reasons.

Salamun Alaikum! Hope you are doing well. We are sorry for replying you late.
Difference in nationality is not a valid reason for a father to deny a nikah of his daughter with a Muslim from different nationality, race or other social status. Mutual understating, respect and cooperation is needed
