Minor Hindu girl forcibly converted and married to Muslim boy in Sindh


In a distressing incident that underscores the precarious situation of religious minorities in Pakistan, a 13-year-old Hindu girl named Roshni Meghwar from Mirpur Khas, Sindh, was forcibly converted to Islam and married to a Muslim boy. This case highlights the urgent need for greater protection and awareness regarding the safety of minority girls in the region.

Hindus, who once comprised a significant population in Sindh, have been reduced to a vulnerable minority. Hindu girls are prime targets for radical Islamists who abduct them, forcibly convert them, and marry them to their abductors, often men two to three times their age. These victims frequently face sexual violence and coercion. Despite the gravity of the situation, international human rights organizations have largely overlooked their plight. This neglect has led to an irreparable loss for the Hindu community in Sindh.

The abduction and forced conversion of Roshni Meghwar have sparked outrage among the community.
