“Christian women in Pakistan forcibly converted to Islam and married off to their kidnappers,” by Shafique Khokhar, Asia News, February 26, 2016 (thanks to C. Cantoni):

Lahore (AsiaNews) – Tahira, 21, and Reema Bibi, 20, are two Pakistani Christian women who were abducted on 2 December 2015 from near their home in Sargodha (Punjab) as they returned together from work.

The two Muslim men who took the two young women, raped them, and then forcibly married them. Afterwards, they kept them segregated in their Islamabad home, this according to British Pakistani Christian Association (BPCA), an activist group that works for religious freedom in Pakistan, and monitors the continuous violations against minorities, especially women, which the government does not punish.

Forced marriages have been a scourge in the Muslim nation for years, one that does not seem close to any resolution. The case of Tahira and Reema is emblematic. On 11 February, Tahira managed to escape, but her Muslim “husband” filed a complaint with police, who immediately arrested six members of her family. The relatives were released thanks to pressure from human rights groups, but the authorities have ordered the family to return Tahira to her “husband.”

The BPCA reported a similar case a few days ago. A Christian woman was seized and forced to marry the Muslim owner of the house where she worked as a cleaner. After she managed to escape thanks to a colleague, the police ordered her family to hand her over to the authorities; otherwise, they would arrest a relative.

According to a report by the Movement for Solidarity and Peace in Pakistan, at least 1,000 Pakistani women and girls are forced into Muslim marriages and made to convert to Islam each year. However, the real number is certainly much higher, since many incidents go unreported.

The aforementioned report found that forced marriages usually follow a similar pattern: females between the ages of 12 and 25 are abducted, made to convert to Islam, and then married to the abductor or an associate.

Even if a case goes to court, the victims are threatened and pressured by their “husband” and his family to declare that their conversion was voluntary.

Victims are often sexually abused, forced into prostitution, and suffer domestic abuse or even wind up in the human trafficking racket. Those who try to rebel are told that they “are now Muslims and that the punishment for apostasy is death”.

In November 2015, the Pakistani Ministry of Religious Affairs and the Council of Islamic Ideology opposed a law on “forced conversion”, sparking dismay and protests among Pakistani Hindus and Christians.

Since most minority Pakistanis are very poor, it is hard for them to have adequate political representation and receive justice.

That of forced marriages is just one of many issues that religious and ethnic minorities face as they are deprived of their rights, even though they are formally guaranteed by the Constitution.

A landmark Supreme Court ruling on 19 June 2014 took note of the injustice meted out to the country’s minorities.

Headed by Chief Justice Tassaduq Hussain Jillani, the bench included justices Azmat Saeed and Mushir Alam. It found that the government is complicitous in the acts of injustice. Unfortunately, the court’s ruling did not spark any reaction from the government.

What a surprise.

In the latest case, the Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has called for the return of Tahira and Reema to their families and criminal proceedings against their captors and rapists. Established in 1994, the AHRC is based in Hong Kong.

What are the odds that Muslims who kidnap and rape Infidel women in Pakistan will pay attention to a court ruling by Infidels in Hong Kong? Right.

    Vile, nasty, cruel, perverted, putred Islam at it best. I look forward to the day women rise up and smash the filthy male “religion” back into the hell it came from.

      It is the United States of America which has allowed this ISLAMIC STATE to survive with all its civil and military aid since its illegitimate birth. The Christians in Pakistan have NO FUTURE WHAT SO EVER. I hope and pray that DONALD TRUMP becomes the NEXT PRESIDENT and takes the necessary steps and cleans the world of ISLAMIC FILTH from AMERICA AND ABROAD.

    Christian women in Pakistan forcibly converted to Islam and married off to their kidnappers

    Remember: questioning whether or not Europe should take in millions of people raised in an actual rape culture (not the Western “feminists” version where rape means a woman willingly consenting to sex and taking the consent back the next day) is “xenophobia”, “racism”, “bigotry”, etc.

      I regret having to disagree with you Angemon, but most US rape victims do not take back consent the next day. They never gave consent. Perhaps you are not aware of the wave of rapes and murders in Charlottesville VA. A dead girl cannot withdraw her consent. There are certainly false rape allegations in the US but you cannot group all rape allegations together as :Buyer’s regret.” That sounds positively Islamic to blame the victim of rape. Shall we stone them?

        That wasn’t his point. Of course rapes happen in the west, but in order to make the false and clearly hysterical claim that the west is a ”rape culture” feminists have indeed been consistently trying to broaden the definition of rape to include such things as buyer’s remorse.

    This happens to all Christian minorities in Muslim countries. In Egypt they abduct rape and forcefully convert the Coptic Christians.

      And it isn’t just the Christians: it’s *any* non-Muslim minority that is treated as lawful prey.

      In Pakistan Hindu and Sikh girls as well as Christian girls are seized, raped, terrorised and ‘broken’, ‘converted’ to ISlam – with the full connivance and approval of the police and the government and the judiciary and, basically, pretty well the entire Muslim ‘community’ in the country.

      In Egypt the only minority left to victimise are the Christians. But I’d hazard the guess that when Dhimmi Jews lived in Egypt *their* women and girls were preyed upon in the same way (as also all over the *rest* of the dar al Islam; Muslim men felt totally entitled to seize Jewish girls and ‘disappear’ them).

      In Iran it would have been Zoroastrian and Jewish girls as well as Christians.

      I would hazard the guess that wherever any non-Islamic population lived as Dhimmis, their girls and women were regularly preyed upon by the surrounding Muslims…all day, every day. Just as the Muslims have done and are doing to girls in Britain, *right now*. And neighbouring countries not yet fully under the Muslim boot were ‘raided’ continually, with young girls a primary target, to be dragged off and enslaved and raped and often simply abused-unto-death.

      Islam is fundamentally about licensing rampant predatory behaviour amongst its adherents, especially the males. They can bully, deceive, slander, rob, rape, terrorise, torment and MURDER non-Muslims anytime they like; the non-Muslims are viewed as things, to be used and abused with absolute impunity. It is sickening. It is disgusting, and it is *infuriating* to see people in our own society endlessly making excuses for and defending and enabling this horrible, horrible belief system.

      The more I see of Islam-on-the-ground the more I despise it. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it, because it is a licensing and unloosing and active promotion of human wickedness that seems to be me to be more thoroughgoing and shameless than any other such system that humans have ever produced. And that’s saying something.

        Indeed, this is a daily occurrence in Pakistan. Muslims in Pakistan kidnap non-Muslim girls(mostly Hindu, Christian and Sikh) and convert them or rape them before converting and then the girls are married off to the rapists. After that the girls are not even allowed to meet their families since now they are Muslims.

        This is real Islam – what these stupid Western media and leaders talk about peaceful Islam which is a plain lie and delusion. The West will never ever admit that Muslims are committing this abhorrent atrocity on non-Muslims in Muslim majority countries. Also to note is Muslims in Egypt commit the same atrocity on Coptic Christian girls.

      The Balkan countries know all about this ‘hell on earth’, but Greece for some unknown reason is sharing the ‘hell’ with the rest of Europe and bringing these supremacists back to Greece after kicking them out 100 years ago!

    Our Western governments are so totally complicit in almost every aspect of this global shitiness.

    We’ve been foreign aiding and abetting these countries for long enough:-

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreign_aid_to_Pakistan

    Whatever happened to Quid pro quo?

    This is the problem with not understanding the way islamic states think.

    It may appear that we’re buying their cooperation in one area, like flying drones over their land, but if we’re acting on their ‘intelligence’, then we only end up doing their dirty work anyhow. And all the while, they see our donations as merely jizya and a sign of subservience to their spiritual sickness.

      It is disgraceful that my tax money and your tax money is confiscated by our government to give to such countries as Pakistan. We need to stop that aid at once and altogether to Pakistan and every other Muslim country where this degradation and torture of women is occurring in conclusion with the government of the country. We should give no money to any country where women are required to cover their heads and/or bodies with shrouds.

      Of course we have stopped aid to Egypt, but that was because the army kicked the Muslim Brotherhood out of control, not its treatment of women or Christians.

    Here is the important point: “In November 2015, the Pakistani Ministry of Religious Affairs and the Council of Islamic Ideology opposed a law on “forced conversion”, sparking dismay and protests among Pakistani Hindus and Christians.”

    No less than the ‘Pakistani Ministry of Religious Affairs and the Council of Islamic Ideology’ refused to protect vulnerable Hindus and Christians.

    This TACIT APPROVAL OF FORCIBLE CONVERSION…thus putting the lie to the claim that Islam does not allow forcible conversion.

    Mohammed forcibly converted people in the hadiths, therefore forcible conversion is Sunna and normative Islam, rather than an aberration.

    Pakistan is using state power to contravene the human rights of minorities in Pakistan.

    The Pakistani government and legal system are shielding the abusers of minority women from arrest and prosecution.

    We can imagine that Christians and Hindus who tried kidnapping a Muslim girl would be arrested and prosecuted.

    • Carolynesays

      I don’t think they would be arrested and prosecuted, they would be torn apart by a mob in the streets. That’s their way.

    Obama, Cameron, some prominent catholic priests and those from other denominations go into overdrive to defend Muslims from imaginary, so-called islamophobic threats but do little for the real victims, Christian and other religious minorities who are raped, kidnapped, murdered and abused in various other ways with impunity In Moslem lands. There’s hardly a whimper from western leaders. They are indeed culpable. Christians foolishly campaign for Muslim ‘refugees’ and welcome them with placards. We have these vile Muslims on the one hand, and some unbelievably stupid and dumb Christians bent on hastening their own demise, on the other. It’s maddening, to say the least.

    I cannot say how much I nowadays loathe this cult of Islam and the behavior of many of it’s followers. Our big problem is that there are literally BILLIONS of people who follow this cult and they are not all in line with or understanding what is going on in other places. The ME is the biggest problem since the Arabs seem to have devolved into Islam’s very worst people. I wish we could arrive at a consensus of how to deal with the problem of good caring people who do not actually understand & realize what their own religious book says and how it is used to justify terrorism & hatred. I fear we are descending into WW3 because we are trying to be rational & assume that with enough caring & understanding we can thwart the threat with talk. I am not religious myself but it seems as tho everything is headed towards that Biblical Armageddon, what is wrong with us humans, why do we have to do this sh*t ? After considering every alternative I believe that unless the West guards it’s structure & borders carefully, we will lose everything to the evil of a regime that desires only to subjugate everyone – therefore I support the view that the West has to prevent the cult from entering wherever possible and keep tabs on those already in the West – Protectionist? – yes – the only way forward now. And I am a Liberal !
    You will notice that I have no words of hatred or violence towards any follower of Islam – you may follow who you like, but NOT push those ideas on to anyone else or contribute to the welfare of Islam as an organization. I would severely punish anyone who raised their hand against any other human being in the name of religion – YOU are the disgusting filth of the world and part of the very problem you rail aqainst !

    None cares much about Non-Moslems who don’t care about survival.
    Let alone normal humans, even a normal ant shall bite when being harmed.

    One of possible theories is, both Non-Moslems and the alleged “kidnappers” collaborate to invent a politisation news and a propaganda with a hidden agenda to humiliate the majority Moslems, especially if the news appears only around hatemongers’ websites.

    Any dispute between Non-Moslem minority and angry Moslem minority (abandoned criminals who fail to get the expected pieces of prosperity from their Moslem nation) is supposed to be settled quickly between themselves locally, that is if only those Non-Moslems have a guts to abandon the suicidal masochism of “giving other cheek”, or to flee from city to city continuously until the Christ comes again to bleed the heads, to slay, to wound, and to fill the streets with the scattered bodies per Ps 110:7.

    Psychologically, a loser tends to seek a cheaper vengeance thru victimising of the more weaker losers to satiate his frustration or anger.

    Unfortunately the “abnormal” Non-Moslem minorities invite the repetition of violence from the Moslem minority rather than to ensure violence has to be not repeated.

    Until the life opens the door to a new exciting life, everybody should be serious to survive.

    Where is the much lauded dhimmi protection under Sharia law?

    Another example of islamic takiya.

    Those who kidnap Christians are acting in accordance with Sharia. That’s why the “police” are passively if not actively assisting the kidnappers in muslim majority countries like Pakistan.

  3. θ says:

    “madmanna says: Those who kidnap Christians are acting in accordance with Sharia. That’s why the “police” are passively if not actively assisting the kidnappers in muslim majority countries like Pakistan.”

    Only in a state of war the Islamic captivity is legitimised. Beyond it, a kidnapper’s hands can be mutilated or cut off by the courts.
    Are Non-Moslem minorities the tax-payers , which is a precondition for them before demanding the police’s protection? Sadly, mostly Non-Moslems commit the crime of tax-evasion.

    The kidnappers are minority. Internal problems among the minorities should be settled firstly by themselves, to prove whether they are serious to survive, or not.
