Hindu Girl Held in Madrassa and Forced to Convert to Islam

By Antony Thomas ||The Chakra News

Islamabad, Pakistan (CHAKRA), Tuesday, May 11th, 2010( This report is published on the basis of news received late) – A Punjabi Hindu girl from Pakistan has been kidnapped and is being held in a madrassa where she is being forced to convert to Islam.  This has been brought to attention by leading Pakistani activist Ansar Burney. 

Burney’s rights organization has learned that 15-year-old, Gajri who is daughter of Meghna Ram was abducted from her home in Katchi Mandi on December 29th 2009 by a nearby Muslim neighbour.  This took place in the Liaquatpur in the Rahim Yar Khan District.

According to Burney, Gajri’s parents later found out that she was being held in a madrassa where she has been forcefully married off to someone in addition to being forced to convert to Islam.

The local administrator of the madrassa is refusing to speak to anyone regarding the abduction and Gajri is not being allowed to leave the madrassa resulting in not being able to speak to her parents or family members.

Burney, a former human rights activist openly condemned the forceful act of conversion in addition to the kidnapping.  He has demanded her immediate release.

“Pakistan is a state party to the Convention on the Rights of the Child and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which oblige authorities to protect religious minorities under international law,” he said.

After Gajri disappeared on December 21st from southern Punjab, on December 26th the local police station received a letter from the madrassa administrator stating that Gajri had embraced Islam and had married her neighbour Mohammed Salim.  However, the letter was not enclosed with a marriage certificate.

The police failed to immediately inform Gajri’s parents of the letter they had received even though her parents had attempted to file a report when she first went missing.  The parents were discouraged from filing a report, according to Burney.

After feeling helpless, Gajri’s parent’s went to Ramesh Jay Pal, the vice president of the National Peace Committee For Interfaith Harmony, asking him for his advice on the matter.

With Pal’s help, Gajri’s parents met the priest, Maulana Abdul Hafeez, in charge of Darul-Uloom Madrassa in Khanpur.  He told them that their daughter had embraced Islam and that she was not allowed to meet her parents.

    An important enquiry was held in this report which you have published truely. There were so many cases as portryed by you. There was an abduction
    in that Madrisa of that district. Madrisas in Pakistan are on regular watch and there is kind of preachings or teachings against any faith at present. Please make propagation against Talibani Islam in the same way as we trying the same. Propaganda against Hindu Sikh or any other faith etc. is a common thing in Pakistan. But we should demand no attack on Muslim Mosques in India and no terrorist activities in Kashmir regularly. Therefore, don’t forget that we can make a real publications against Hinduism to control the Muslims in India from Pakistan. But to save the face of Islamic Pakistan, we are developing an artificial peace and inter-Religious harmony in Pakistan and fighting against the terrorists those are paid and regularly financed by Israel and Indian Agencies in Pakistan, as believed by the common Muslim people of Pakistan.

    The Hindus in India are to hold themselves responsible for the plight of Hindus anywhere .They do not live the life of dignity in India and live like second and third class citizens , giving higher privileges to the so-called minorities , who through violence divided this ancient land of ours and forcibly took a lion’s share .This happened when the great Mahatma,Pandit Nehru and all the Congress stalwarts , , on whom are showered al the credit of bringing Independence , had been impotently looking on.Hindus have to fight for themselves.Depending upon these ptgmy and corrupt leaders of India who kowtow before the so called Minorities is perilous

    Be it Islam now or christianism in the past, monotheist religions tend to be non-tolerant while polytheist religions tend to be more tolerant. Indeed, polytheists do not bother about some one who belong to another religion, some one who believe in another god ( as long as he does not disturb them). They already believe in many gods !…
