Two Hindu young women who converted to Islamabad will be provided security by the federal government, the Islamabad High Court ruled on Tuesday. 

A bench, headed by IHC Chief Justice Athar Minallah, was hearing their girls' petition asking for protection. The young women said that they converted to Islam of their own free will and should be given protection.

The court ruled that the young women can't be taken to Sindh till their case is being heard. A female SP should ensure their security, the court said. The women, identified as Asiya aka Raveena and Nadia aka Reena, and their husbands have been handed into the custody of Islamabad deputy commissioner.

The government should provide all types of protection to the young women, the court said.

Justice Athar Minullah said that it is an extremely sensitive case.

All respondents in the case have been asked to submit their replies too. The respondents include Ramesh Kumar, Harilal, Sindh IG, interior ministry, Sindh CM, human rights ministry, chief secretary, the Sindh government and the federal government.

IHC has ordered the federal government to submit a detailed report on the case too.

Their husbands, Barkat and Shafaqat, have filed a bail petition in the court too. Their lawyer, Umair Baloch, submitted the petition.

An FIR has been registered against them, the petition says. The police should be stopped from arresting them.

The brother of the young women, Shaman Daas, had registered a case against six people at the Ghotki police station on March 21. Safdar Malik, Barkat Ali and Aman Shah have been named in the case. Three unidentified men have been mentioned too, said IO Sahabuddin.

The case has been adjourned till April 2, Tuesday.

Forced conversion?

The family of the two girls claims that they were kidnapped and forcibly converted and married to Muslim men.

Shaman Daas submitted a petition in the Lahore High Court’s Bahawalpur division bench for the recovery of his sisters. He submitted the B-forms of the Ghotki girls to the court. Daas said his sisters –Raveena and Reena—are underage as they are aged 13 and 15 years.

“If Nikkah is permissible at this age under the Pakistani law, my family will accept the Nikkah of the two girls,” Shaman said.

The B-form shows Raveena was born in 2004 and Reena in 2006. Shaman Daas reached Bahawalpur along with his lawyers. “We came to Bahawalpur as we were told that the girls will be produced before the court in Bahawalpur,” he said. But, they haven’t been produced so far, he said.

    Time for Pakistan to stop these forced conversion and under age marriages. These jaahil mullahs and he complicit Sind police need to have their arses kicked publicly and then chucked in jail for a very long time.

      When the girls claiming that they accepted Islam at their own will, who are you to interfere in their matter? As far under age conversion is concerned it is not against Islam and how can a bill be passed which is not according to Islam? Everyone should mind his language when posting something on an official website.

      P.S. Hazrat Ali (R.A) was underage when he accepted Islam.

    these girls were abducted at tender age of 13/14 years and then claimed as converted, Abduction is a crime/kidnapping. These girls were not of age to go themselves and converted. Instead, they were abducted, then their nikaah done in one step.
    The so called husbands are complicit in the kidnapping. They cannot claim subsequent alleged conversion to cover up their abduction/crime.
