Saturday Aug 11, 2012
JACOBABAD: A Hindu girl, who disappeared two days ago, has reportedly converted to Islam and married a Muslim man in Jacobabad, Geo News learnt.
Reports have it that a erstwhile Hindu girl, Manisha Kumari, 14, now Mahvish, herself telephoned her parents from an unknown location and broke the news of her conversion, that she claimed was as voluntary as her love-marriage with a man named Ghulam Mustafa Channa.
On the other hand her father, Ravet Mal, has alleged that her abductors have forced her to convert and marry.
“She can never give up on her religion, she has been coerced into doing it”, her father said while talking to Geo News.
According to her father she went missing a couple of days back and was nowhere to be found.
Girl’s uncle, Sanjay Singh, told Geo News, from the way her voice wavered on the telephone, it appeared as if she was saying all this under pressure.
“She sounded scared on the phone, it’s not what it seems, there were people around her dictating her, we could hear their giving her instructions”, said Sanjay.
Meanwhile, vowing to recover her before long, SSP Jacobabad said that police were hot on trail of her alleged abductors.
Sindh has a sizeable population of Hindus, who are the largest minority community in Pakistan.
