Pakistan court orders 14-y-o Christian girl to return to Muslim man who kidnapped her
A 14-year-old Christian girl was in tears after a judge ordered her to return to the Muslim man who abducted her at gunpoint during the COVID-19 lockdown and forcibly married and converted her to Islam.
Catholic teenager Maira Shahbaz, who was abducted in April, had recently been allowed by a lower court to leave her captorâ€™s home and stay at a womenâ€™s shelter until her case was heard by the Lahore High Court.
However, Judge Raja Muhammad Shahid Abbasi ruled this week that she must return to the home of the married man who kidnapped her, and who the judge referred to as her "husband," on the basis that she had converted to Islam, according to the U.S.-based persecution watchdog International Christian Concern....
Our miserable pro-Islamic Foreugn Office, as a matter of urgency, should summon the Pakistani High Commissionsr (equivalent to an ambassador as Pakistan is in the Commonwealth of Nations,, basically nations with a former imperial link to Britain), to explain this disgraceful decision, and we should threaten to suspend any foreign aid, until dreadful laws like this one, and the infamous blasphemy laws are rescinded. In Britain and the USA, this rapist and paedophile would be in gaol, and the judge would be unceremoniously kicked off the bench!!!
