Time and time again we hear of “predominantly Pakistani” groomers, rapists and child abusers, Sikh’s know about this issue better than anyone. Today we are reporting about a kidnapped Sikh girl forced into Islam.
(Please bear with the video above as it was live streamed, it does work)
A daughter of a Sikh priest has been missing for many days now. Her family are distraught fearing for her safety and wellbeing after she was taken from them. She has been forcibly converted to Islam and made to marry a Muslim man in the Nankana Sahib area of Lahore Pakistan.
“Our family has faced a tragic incident as some goons forcibly entered our house and abducted my younger sister. They tortured her and forcibly converted her to Islam.
We went to a police station to register a complaint. We met many senior officials but they have not listened to our complaint. The goons again came to our house and forced us to withdraw our complaint and threatened that they will also force us to convert to Islam if we persisted with the complaint.”
Chief Minister Amarinder Singh of Punjab has intervened and asked an external affairs minister to take up this issue urgently.
“Shocking incident of a Sikh girl being kidnapped & forced to convert to Islam in Nankana Sahib, Pakistan. Call upon @ImranKhanPTI to take firm and immediate action against the perpetrators. Request @DrS Jaishankar to strongly take up the issue with his counterpart at the earliest.”
Sikh Community Taking Action
There is a small yet thriving Sikh community in Pakistan; unfortunately, their daughters are always targeted by Muslims for abduction, forced conversions and “marriage” which really means “rape”. All these atrocities are carried out with threats of death for those who try and stop this from happening.
The Sikh community have rallied around the family in support. They have organised a protest outside a governors house while an international conference related to Kartarpur Corridor is scheduled to be held there.
President of Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) and Akali Dal leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa also condemned the incident. They have pleaded with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan to deal with this matter at a global level because forced conversions happening in Pakistan are angering the Sikh community.
The young girls family have stated that unless they get her back home and safely, they will self immolate in front of the Punjab Governor’s house.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the kidnapped girl and her family, we hope their daughter is returned safely to them.
