Islamabad HC Sends Forcefully Converted Hindu Girls Back To Their Husbands, Calls Them ‘Willingly Married’

Apr 11, 2019

The Ghotki sisters, Reena and Raveena, two Hindu girls from Ghotki in Sindh, Pakistan who were allegedly abducted, forcefully converted to Islam and married off have been sent back to their Muslim husbands Safdar Ali and Barkat Ali by the Islamabad High Court.

The decision was taken in the light of an alleged confession by the girls that they had willingly converted to Islam given they were impressed by the Islamic teachings.

Earlier, the Islamabad High Court had formed a 5-member commission which examined the case and surmised that the girls had accepted Islam on their own accord to marry their lovers. The commission also informed the court that alleged medical tests had proven that the girls were aged 18 and 19, and therefore not minors.

Meanwhile, when Justice Minallah asked another member of the commission his views, advocate IA Rahman advised the court of regularising centres where the conversions take place as there are no laws to prevent forced conversions, reports The Tribune.

This case witnessed a huge uproar on Social Media and the case of the girls was also taken up by External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj.
