Sushma Swaraj takes on Pakistan minister over Hindu girls’ abduction, forced conversion


New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Sunday sought details from the Indian High Commission in Islamabad following reports of abduction, forced conversion and underage marriages of two Pakistani Hindu girls in Sindh province.

“I have asked the Indian High Commissioner in Pakistan to send a report,” the Minister wrote on Twitter.

The two sisters, aged 15 and 13, were reportedly abducted on the eve of Holi.

India has also shared its concerns through an official note to Pakistan Foreign office sent on Saturday. According to sources, India has said that suitable remedial action is taken by Pakistan to protect and promote safety, security, and welfare of its own citizens, especially from the minority communities.

The incident came to light after their father and brother said in videos that went viral on social media that the two were kidnapped and forced to embrace Islam.
