A 14-year-old Hindu girl, identified as Sonia Bhel, was kidnapped, forcibly converted to Islam, and married to her Muslim abductor in Hyderabad, Pakistan. This incident comes shortly after a similar case involving Sonika Chawla, a Hindu girl from Larkana, who was also subjected to the same ordeal.

These cases highlight a troubling pattern affecting Pakistan’s Hindu community. Young Hindu women and girls have become frequent targets of systematic abductions. Victims often face multiple forms of abuse, including sexual violence and coercion, exacerbating the trauma of their experiences.

Despite the severity of these issues, international human rights organizations have not given sufficient attention to the issue. The Hindu community in Pakistan has expressed growing fears for their safety and the preservation of their cultural identity.
