11 year old Ashu has been kidnapped at gun point by the Islamists from Umerkot, Sindh. Ashu’s mother is running around to rescue her daughter.
Pakistan’s forced abductions and conversions have been known to put minority women at risk. Young girls are abducted, converted into Islam and forced to marry or are kept as sex slaves or raped. The government has been unsuccessful to implement the Child Marriage Restraint Act 1929 and the Sindh Child Marriage Restraint Act 2013, which raised the legal minimum age of marriage to 18 in Sindh province. The victim girls are largely left in the custody of their kidnapper throughout the trial process, where they are forced to claim that the conversion or marriage was consensual.
