Earlier, a case of kidnapping of three Hindu girls and forcibly converting to Islam came to light in Pakistan.According to the parents of the kidnapped girl, she was abducted from Fateh Chowk area of Hyderabad when she was returning home. According to reports, a complaint has been made to the police but the girl has not been found yet. This comes days after three women from the minority Hindu community were abducted and forcibly converted to Islam. Amidst the continuous atrocities against minorities, there is anger and fear among the Hindus living in Pakistan. Earlier on September 24, a 14-year-old girl was kidnapped from Nasarpur area. While returning home in Mirpurkhas town, another Hindu girl has also been kidnapped.Kidnapping then forcibly married to Muslim youthEarlier, in Mirpurkhas town of Pakistan itself, a Hindu man had alleged that his wife was abducted. After some time she came to know that her religion had been converted and she was married to a Muslim youth.Police accused of discriminationSerious allegations of discrimination have also been made against the police in this case. On the marriage of a Hindu married woman to a Muslim youth, the police officials had given a statement that the said woman had converted to Islam of her own free will and married a man named Ahmed.Significantly, in recent times, there have been frequent incidents of atrocities on Hindus in Pakistan. In June this year, a minor Hindu girl testified before the court that she was forcibly converted to Islam and married off to a Muslim man. Just three months after this incident, the same fate happened to three Hindu girls.Bill against forced conversions rejectedIn October last year, a parliamentary committee in Pakistan rejected a bill against forced conversions. Affairs Minister Noorul Haque Qadri had said that the environment is not conducive for enacting a law against forced conversion. According to the Dawn report, the minister had even claimed that the law against forced conversions could disturb peace in the country and make minorities more vulnerable. According to the Central Intelligence Agency's factbook, as of 2020 data, Hindus, Christians and other minorities make up just 3.5 per cent of Pakistan's population.
