Increase in cases of rape and assaults on Minority Hindu women
A rise in cases of forced conversions and marriages in Pakistan has left Hindu and Christian families in constant fear of their daughters being kidnapped, the International Forum on Rights and Society (IFFRAS) has said.
This month, the UK government imposed sanctions on its Muslim cleric Mian Abdul Haq for the forced conversions and marriages of girls and women from religious minorities, but such cases do not appear to have had an impact on the Pakistani government.
Cases of forced marriages and conversions regularly surface and are eventually dismissed.
Recently, on December 10, the Ministry of Justice (VoJ) released a report stating that between 2019 and 2022, there were one hundred cases of kidnapping, rape and forced conversion of Christian girls to Islam. However, this report does not mention these cases. of Hindu and Sikh girls which are reported almost every month. In Sindh, according to IFFRAS, even parents of young boys fear kidnapping for forced conversion.
