Hindu girls in Pakistan converted, married off triggering protests from community

Yet another outrageous piece of news coming in from Pakistan where two minor Hindu sisters were allegedly kidnapped and forcibly married after being converted to Islam.

The incident took place in Pakistan’s Sindh province.

The incident rightfully triggered protests by the minority Hindu community.

It need be mentioned that Hindu community in large numbers have already migrated to India for fear of safety from extremist elements in Pakistan.

The two girls are aged 13-year-old Raveena and 15-year-old Reena.

It is said that they were allegedly kidnapped by a group of “influential” men from their home in Ghotki district on the eve of Holi.

Soon after the kidnapping, a video went viral in which a cleric was purportedly shown soleminising the Nikah (marriage) of the two girls.

Later another video surfaced in which the two sisters claimed they embraced Islam themselves and no one forced them to covert or get married.

The Hindu community in Pakistan has carried out massive demonstrations calling for strict action to be taken against those responsible, while reminding Prime Minister Imran Khan of his promises to the minorities of the country.
