The Sindh province government has passed Sindh Child Marriage restraint act to stop the forced abduction and marriage of girls from minority community.
Every year, Muslim men abduct and forcibly convert about 1,000 girls — mostly Hindus, but also Christians, according to the South Asia Partnership-Pakistan, a local human rights group. About 5,000 Pakistani Hindus leave every year for neighboring India — where 80% are Hindus — to escape religious persecution, according to the Pakistan Hindu Council.
“Muslims in Pakistan will never treat Hindus as their own,” said Meera Bai, a Pakistani Hindu immigrant in New Delhi. “For them, we will always remain the ‘other.’”
“We escaped religious and cultural persecution when we came to India,” she added. “We are happy here. At least here we know that no one will steal our cattle or our young daughters.”
A Christian teenage girl from chand colony in Faisalabad was also kidnapped, forcibly converted to Islam. Anguished family says no one is listening to them, asks under which law a 15 year old can convert. Breaks heart to million pieces when the father Javed says “jeendi hai k maar gayi ae.”
