Times of India: Pakistanis kidnapping Hindu, Sikh girls for forced conversions, ransom

Incidents of abduction of Hindus and Sikhs girls, for forced conversion and marriages to Muslims, as well as for ransom have increased, a Pakistani official told the Times of India newspaper.

Pakistani parliament member Dr. Haresh Chopra of the Pakistan Muslim League was in India seeking Indian parliamentarians who would take up the issue of plight of Hindus and Sikhs as it did in case of illegal transfer of real estate in Pakistan, the Times reported.

His motive was “to put international pressure on Pakistan government to protect minority communities.”

The Times reported:

Chopra, who is also member of standing committee on human rights, was here on a personal visit on the invitation of Nankana Sahib Sikh Yatree Jatha President Swaran Singh Gill.

“I receive information of at least two cases of abduction of Hindu and Sikh girls in a week,” he said. There are organized gangs of mullahs and terrorists, who even abduct minor girls of minority communities and procure their age certificates with Muslim names from madrassas proving them adults.

“In such cases we can’t do much to save the children,” he added.

Chopra, who is a member of parliament from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, formerly known as the North-West Frontier Province, said, “Being a soft target, many Hindus and Sikhs are abducted from the province for ransom, but cases of forced conversion are more in Sindh province.

“Those who can’t bear their persecution anymore often think of migrating to India as they are not financially sound enough to shift to European countries.”
