Conversion of Hindu girls

KARACHI: This refers to the recent cases of the three Hindu girls who ‘converted’ to Islam and got married to Muslim men. A PPP MNA has, according to several media reports, been instrumental in such cases, facilitating the ‘conversion’ of Hindu girls to Islam. After the recent decision of the Supreme Court under which the girls were allowed to go with their husbands, the legislator organised celebrations on the return of the girls to their new homes and distributed sweets, claiming that the girls had married of their own choice.

I have a very simple question to ask of the MNA. If any young girl from his family decides to get married of her own accord, even if it is to a Muslim boy against her parents’ will, what will be his reaction?

    Is there any prove yet in which these girls claim that we were not forcefully converted in presence of both parents and husbands?
    Whenever these girls ask to give thier opinions they were under opposite party not with thier parents.
    Only once when both parties were present i.e on 26th March than everyone knows that what those girl said but i don’t know why Chief justice sent them to shelter home.
    Main objective of Court is to hear both parties but this time without hearing they sent to registrar office with police. Is this is justice? who knows that in registrar office the girls claim themselves to go with their husbands?
