Pakistan: 1,000 Christian, Hindu girls forced to convert to Islam every year

Pakistan Hindus“There is no compulsion in religion,” says the Qur’an (2:256), but what constitutes “compulsion” is in the eye of the beholder. After all, the institutionalized subjugation of the dhimma, with its regular humiliation and harassment, from which one can be freed for the simple price of converting to Islam, is not considered compulsion. Remember Centanni and Wiig, the journalists who were kidnapped and forced to convert to Islam — even though their conversions were obviously coerced, their captors made them say that they were converting freely, and the captors probably believed that themselves. After all, the journos could have chosen to be killed instead.

“1,000 Christian, Hindu girls forced to convert to Islam every year in Pakistan: report,” from IndiaToday, April 8 (thanks to Lookmann):

Around 1,000 Christian and Hindu women in Pakistan are forcibly converted to Islam and married to Muslim men every year, says a report released by Movement for Solidarity and Peace (MSP) on Monday.

The report says the estimates of the incidence of forced marriage and conversion range from 100 to 700 victim Christian girls and 300 Hindu girls every year, adding that the true scale of the problem is likely to be much greater, as a number of cases are never reported or do not progress through the law-enforcement and legal systems.

The report has categorised the concurrent incidence of forced conversions and forced marriages as a distinct crime specific to minority Christian women in Punjab.

The report says that cases of forced marriages/conversions follow a distinctive pattern. Christian girls – usually between the ages of 12 and 25 – are abducted, converted to Islam and married to the abductor or third party.

The victim’s family usually files a First Information Report (FIR) for abduction or rape with the local police station. The abductor, on behalf of the victim girl, files a counter FIR, accusing the Christian family of harassing the willfully converted and married girl, and for conspiring to convert the girl back to Christianity.

Upon production in the courts or before the magistrate, the victim girl is asked to testify whether she converted and married of her own free will or if she was abducted. In most cases, the girl remains in custody of the abductor while judicial proceedings are carried out.

Upon the girl’s pronouncement that she wilfully converted and consented to the marriage, the case is settled without relief for the family. Once in the custody of the abductor, the victim girl may be subjected to sexual violence, rape, forced prostitution, human trafficking and sale, or other domestic abuse.

In its report, MSP has included 10 illustrative cases victims who have been subjected to such patterns of violence and injustice.

    This primitive behaviour is so alien to the civilised West that many people, probably most, have difficulty even comprehending it. Out of sight out of mind, alas.
    Keep exposing the truth, everyone.

    One more example (and there are a multitude) why Hindus and Christians are natural allies in the struggle against what Islam intends for Hindus, Christians and all of us kuffaars.

    Besides, Hinduism is a subtle religious assessment of the cosmos, ditto for Christianity. Contra Islam, which reeks of a dearth of subtlety, wrapped up as it is, among other things, with submission to Allah, control-freak behavior in this world, and a crude, literal and childish conception of the afterlife, where, btw, women still serve men, i.e., the 72 virgins nonsense et al.

    In any case, a Grand Alliance of Hindus, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Sikhs, Taoists (hopefully there are some left here), Confucianists, Jainists, agnostics, atheists, animists—ah, it is an almost exhaustive list—, is arguably the most important alliance of our times because a resurgent Islam (thanks to things like oil profits and PC/MC, respecting which the Islamic world is a beneficiary in typical parasitic mode) is licking its chops in the hope that it can actually prevail this time.

    Well, it won’t, though it will seem as though it will do so for a few more decades. But after this last gasp, I predict that Islam will be finished forever. It simply cannot stand up to the scrutiny that all religions have experienced over the last two hundred years or so. Many religions will definitely survive, but Islam will not (except on the fringes of society). A thorough study of the life of Mohanmmed, an accurate reading of the Koran (a dreary, repetitive, desultory, disturbing religious work if ever there were one), an exploration of Islam’s some 1400 years’ destruction of other cultures with no apology whatsoever, contra other religions which erred over the centuries and have made amends, and its many liberty-crushing directives in this world (e.g., death for a Muslim who converts to another religion) will finally finish it. It will eventually emerge for all but the most obtuse or brain-washed as the turd in the punchbowl of world religions. I say count on it.

        Yes, but unfortunately it will take probably about one hundred more years until Islam is finally dead. If no stand is taken this will be a truly horrible century.

      True, Wellington …one day islam *WILL BE* finished forever!

    • Defcon 4 says

      Your pie-in-the-sky optimism borders on the delusional. I assert that at no time in islam’s past has it achieved a greater degree of global influence than it has today. There’s absolutely no sign that influence is waning.

    And meanwhile, the “Bendigo Bank”, in Australia, in a glow of self-righteousness, is cancelling the account of a group of worried non-Muslim citizens in Victoria who have been trying to oppose the building of yet another mosque in a provincial city…a mosque whose intended site is *near that city’s airport*.

    Maybe we Aussie jihadwatchers should send the bank’s execs a copy of this news story, together with a copy of the report on gangs of Muslims in Australia (indeed, in Victoria; some of them based in provincial Shepparton, where lots of Muslim ‘refugees’ and ‘asylum seekers’ were ‘settled’ by the powers that be) who have been ‘grooming’ and sexually abusing very young and vulnerable infidel Aussie girls,

    and ask the bank why they are so very, very sure that a mosque is nothing to worry about and that anyone who opposes the building of a mosque must be eeeevil.

      First the Bank isnot paying criminal to commit crime. In case of criminals only the court of law can order bank accounts close legality. When I was in my 20’s in man power training program one of the people running it decide to take 100 million dollar than travel to Swizzland to put the money in than swizz bank. The next day Federal Bank offical travel to each training center to write than new account number on each check as the Fed will cover each check. I met the President of the New York Fed Bank early when I and other chase down than man who took his wife purse, we recover the purser but not the wallet. I said our President Nixion and State Department will make empty threat to Swizz Bank and government, He said I donot make empty threat I just early this morng call the Head of the Swizz Banking Acc than he will be arrest under Swizz for stealing money that doesnot belong to him it against Swizz law to steal money from social program run by any government. The Swizz police follow him from the airport to than bank let him deport the money opening up than number account then they arrest him and took his bankbook from him.

    … “There is no compulsion in religion,” says the Qur’an (2:256)

    Cancelled (2:106, 16:101) through 9:5 “Kill the unbelievers wherever ye find them”

    “1,000 Christian, Hindu girls forced to convert to Islam every year in Pakistan

    Like terrorist#1 Muhammad, in “Battle of the Trench” 33:26

    “… The Jews had no choice but to convert to Islam or to surrender (later in Q9:29) and face Mohammad’s judgement. They did not want to convert and so Mohammed chose one of his lieutenants to make a judgement for him.”
