LAHORE: Two Christian women abducted and forcibly married to Muslim men.
According to FIDES, one of the two victims attended school; the other is illiterate of humble social background. In another similar case, a Christian girl who was forced to marry a Muslim few years back managed to escape and reach her home. According to her she never abandoned the faith and continued to pray to Jesus Christ even after her marriage.
A Pakistani Christian lawyer who advocates for Human Rights says, “These cases are difficult. I asked a few Muslim preachers their opinion on forced marriages. They affirmed with conviction that acts of forced conversion and forced marriage are illicit and illegal, not only according to civil law but also according to Islamic law”.
