Another Hindu girl kidnapped, gang-raped for over 3 months: Pakistan

Armed Islamists in the Sindh province of Pakistan, abducted and gang-raped a Hindu girl named Tamanna Meghwad for over three months. They forced her to convert to Islam. Somehow, she escaped and returned home to her parents.

The girl and her family are now being threatened by Islamists. As apostasy from Islam (leaving the faith) is not allowed as per Sharia law, police, administration and courts are also not helping the beleaguered family.

From what we could grasp from the above video, the girl says, “Ghulam Rasool, Allah Baig, Rasool Baig kidnapped me and forced themselves on me…they held me captive for 3.5 months, but I somehow escaped. Now, we are being threatened.”

Tamanna was kidnapped from Kunri which falls in Umerkot district of Sindh province. Over 90% of Pakistani Hindus, who constitute 2-4% of Pakistan’s total population, live in Sindh; mostly concentrated in border districts like Umerkot, Tharparkar, Mirpurkhas, Ghotki and Sanghar. 

And most of these Hindus are from poor, marginalised SC/ST communities. Yet, rather than protecting them, the Pakistani state leaves them at the mercy of Islamists and feudal landlords who still practice bonded labor. Around 1000 Hindu girls, mostly minor, are abducted each year for sex slavery or forced conversion and marriage.

Tamanna’s case was tweeted by a human rights activist of Pakistani descent named Rahat Austin who fled his country and is now living in South Korea.
