Another Hindu girl named Jamna aged 14 was abducted from Tando Allahyar, occupied Sindh and was later converted to Islam.
This is a second case of a minor Hindu girl who has been abducted in a span of a month.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. So far no justice has been provided in similar cases of abduction and conversion.
