AHRC condemns forced conversion and remarriage of Hindu woman in Sindh province

Lahore, Sat, 12 Nov 2011 ANI

Lahore,Nov 12(ANI): The Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) has condemned the forced conversion of a young Hindu woman to Islam, and held the court responsible for the act.


A Pakistani woman, Anita was allegedly kidnapped from her house in Sindh province's Moro town on April 27, The Daily Times reports.


AHRC said the Pakistan's Supreme Court allowed her to live with her new Muslim husband without annuling her previous marriage with her Hindu husband.


"The way in which the case of Anita was treated in the high and Supreme Court was no more different from the ordinary jirga or panchayat, where the elders of tribes sit down and decide the case on the basis of personal liking or disliking," a commission's statement read.


"In the cases of forced marriages the courts even allow marriage to the already married woman without following the teachings of Islam and Muslim Personal Laws of the country that declare such marriages as against Islam and as haram," the statement added. (ANI)
