I slightly feel that comparing with "forcing someone to do something", "forcing someone not to do something" is a bit unnatural. Any comment?

Perhaps you're conflating unnaturalness with commonality?

She was forced to not eat = Dia dipaksa [untuk] tidak makan. She was forced not to eat = Dia terpaksa tidak makan.
