The National Minority Alliance of Pakistan and Voice of Justice addressed the media at Faisabad Press Club. The press conference took place on Tuesday, May 23. The two organizations took the stage to highlight the ordeal of the girls who go through forced religious conversions. These girls typically belong to the religious minorities of Pakistan.
The abductors force the girls into marriages. Accordingly, the representatives of the NMAP and VFJ called for the authorities to take strict actions against the culprits of the young girls. They have urged the people of the country to protect the minor girls who are involved in these predicaments.
The chairman of the NMAP, Lala Robin Daniel addressed the press on Tuesday. He claimed that the dignity of the girls is in danger and the system is collapsing. Additionally, reasoned that the situation this way, due to lack of lawful implementation and malpractice. He added that the laws are strict when it comes to abduction of girls with the intention to rape.
However, these girls do not get justice due to loopholes in the laws of the country. The system allows the culprits of the women to walk free. This happened even after these culprits commit crimes. Accordingly, the chairman has urged the law enforcement agencies and the judiciary to play a better and more effective role in the protection.
Accordingly, the coordinator of Voice for Justice Ribq Navesh shared the story of an underage Christian girl in this regard. The said girl identifies as Hoorab. She was abducted by forced and her abductors converted her forcefully. Sharing this story, the coordinator of the VFJ has demanded that the victims should get justice quickly. They added that the judiciary of the country currently stands at a significantly low rank.
The authorities have claimed that they are raising their voices against the injustices. They are trying to stop inter-religious marriages and underage marriages. Meanwhile the situation has not improved significantly as the authorities have not sentenced any culprits.
