In Muslim-majority countries, especially Egypt and Pakistan, Christian girls are being kidnapped, raped, and forced to convert to Islam.
The Blaze – A growing number of Christian (and even Hindu) girls are being raped and forced to marry and convert to Islam, according to Agenzia Fides (the information service of the Pontifical Mission Societies) via Continental News. Hundreds of cases are filed each year with many more going unreported out of victims’ fear. In most reported cases, authorities refuse to prosecute the offenders.
For example, 14-year-old Sidra Bibi was reportedly abducted, raped, and impregnated by a Muslim man in her Pakistani village. When she went to local police, they reportedly would not accept her complaint and refused to investigate the crime.
“The Christian girls are the weakest and most vulnerable, because their communities are poor, defenseless and marginalized, therefore easily exposed to harassment and threats. Often they do not even have the courage to denounce the violence” one sister told Fides. Fides said in a society that tolerates discrimination of religious minorities, especially of women, the dominate religion and related social position are used to impose tyranny.
Earlier this month, Pakistani police refused to help a gang rape victim and that Pakistani clerics are seeking to have the Christian Bible banned. And finally, this also comes as we’ve reported startling admissions by some radical Muslims that justify taking infidel sex slaves.
In the video below, Anila Younis, 10 years old, and Saba Younis, 13 years old, were kidnapped and forced by their kidnappers under duress (violence) to convert to Islam. Saba was forced to “marry” and then was sexually abused.
Two Christian girls were forced to “convert” to Islam after they were allegedly raped by some four Muslim men.
The men, who were allegedly armed with weapons, hurled death threats at the girls. During the night each man were said to have raped both girls. Before dawn they checked out of the hotel taking the girls hostage at gun point and drove them to Karachi where they stayed at a house for six days.
During this time they allegedly repeatedly raped both girls. On the sixth day they took the girls to a localMadressah (an Islamic religious seminary) where they were “converted” to Islam. The girls were also given new Islamic names. After the “conversion” they told the girls that if they cooperated with them they would soon release them. From the Madressah they took the girls to two lawyers. The lawyers were told that both girls had “converted to Islam” and wished to stay at a government-run shelter instead of going back to home. Instead of helping the rape victims, the lawyers then allegedly took the girls to a flat and subjected them to sexual assaults.
They were said to have dragged Parvisha into a room where they raped her. Sanam woke up when she heard someone yelling for help. Sanam managed to call emergency and the police arrived at the scene very quickly. Parvisha was immediately transferred to a hospital. Sanam then called her father Arif Masih from the police station informing him of the situation. Arif Masih immediately rushed to Karachi to bring his daughters back home.
As the police were uncooperative, the girls father and uncle filed in court to get them back. “Judge” ruled that the 13 year old abducted child is a woman who converted to Islam and refused to return her to her parents. The girls were both threatened that if they testified against their captors their family would be mercilessly killed. The older girl refused to testify against her captor. The Muslim judge did not in his ruling find any
kidnapping, but instead offered the 10-year old in exchange for a “peace” truce between the Muslim kidnappers and the Non-Muslim Christian father.
While members of CLAAS team were still talking to the victims and their family, a large crowd of people gathered outside Pastor Alam’s house. Chanting slogans, they demanded custody of the “newly-converted” girls. The crowd became hostile and started throwing bricks and stones at Pastor Alam’s house. Mr. Joseph Francis, the National Director of Centre for Legal Aid, Assistance and Settlement (CLAAS), and Pastor Alam narrowly escaped a bullet when they were probing into the case.
