Forced Conversion– is the adoption of a different religion or the adoption of irreligion under duress. Someone who has been forced to convert to a different religion.

It’s sad to witness the forced conversion reports in Pakistan as it is increasing in Pakistan day by day.

Recently, on October 13, 2020, Arzoo Masih was abducted by a local Muslim man, while she was playing outside of her home in Karachi st’s Anthony’s parish. Her parents immediately filed a kidnapping complaint with the police.

Two days later, on 15th October 2020, Arzoo’s parents were summoned to the police station where they saw the couple with marriage and conversion documents.

The documents stated that Arzoo is 18 years old and that she had converted to Islam and married Azhar willingly.

Arzoo was a 13-year-old girl and this was a true act of forced conversion and forced marriage. Which was bad and needs to be highlighted.

Speaking to the Union of Catholic Asian News (UCAN), Shabbir Shafqat, President of the National Christian Party, condemned the abduction, forced conversion, and forced marriage of Arzoo.

”The forced conversion has become a major tool for the prosecution of Christians and other minorities in Pakistan. We must make a united stand against Arzoo’s abduction”. Shafqat told UCAN.

According to a study by the Movement for Solidarity and Peace Pakistan, an estimated 1,000 Christian and Hindu women are abducted, forcefully married, and forcefully converted to Islam every year.

These victims are minors who are subjected to forced conversion and marriages.

The issue of religion is often injected into cases of sexual assault to place victims from minority religious communities to face disadvantages.

Because they know that they can play in the name of religion and nobody would say anything to them and they can cover up easily.

Whether people are in minority or majority, forced conversion and marriages should not be appreciated at any level and we must stand against it.
