1,000 Christian and Hindu girls are abducted, forcefully married, and converted to Islam every year in Pakistan.
The girl’s family believes the abductor took her to Balochistan to force her to convert to Islam and marry him.
Usually the Muslim men attack these girls in groups.
The girl managed to escape from her family and now lives with her Christian aunt.
The Christian girl was working in a medicine factory given that her school was closed down due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The court handed the girl over to her family, but her abductor was not punished.
In Pakistan, Christian and Hindu girls are the primary targets of forced conversion and forced marriage.
Ninety per cent of countries featured in the 2021 World Watch List reported incidents of forced marriage.
Pakistan ranks fourth on Open Doors’ 2021 World Watch List regarding religiously motivated abductions.
