Sikh girl News
A17-year-old girl named Bulbul Kaur, who is the daughter of Granthi of Gurdwara Panja Sahib Preetam Singh, was abducted 15 days ago by two Muslim men in Panja Saheb of Pakistan. There is no news of Bulbul since then and her family is worried thinking that she may also be forced like Jagjit Kaur to convert into Islam and get married to a Muslim man. In a video sent to Bulbul's father, she has expressed fear of being killed if she came back to her parents.
Nine family members of a converted Sikh girl from Nankana Sahib have written to authorities asking them to make a passport for them as they want to leave Pakistan. A letter read, "Please be kind to us to hand over Jagjit Kaur to us" or "have our passports made so, that we can live a dignified and safe life in another country". A court had earlier ruled that Jagjit should go with her "husband" Muhammad Hassan who said that Jagjit alias Ayesha Bibi married to him on her own accord.
Activists of Bajrang Dal Hindustan on Sunday set fire to the effigy of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in Amritsar and called for solidarity between Hindu and Sikhs to protest against the continued lack of action by the Pakistani government on the abduction of the Sikh girl, who was forcibly converted and then married to a Muslim man, in Lahore.
India on Friday took up the case of a Pakistani Sikh girl who was kidnapped, forcefully converted to Islam and then married to a Muslim man in Lahore. The Ministry of External Affairs asked the Pakistani authorities to take "immediate remedial action" in the incident which has once again shown that minorities are not safe there.
The family of the Pakistan-based Sikh girl who was allegedly kidnapped, forcefully converted to Islam and then married to a Muslim man in Lahore, said on Friday that they would immolate themselves if the government did not protect and help them in getting justice. Claiming that no Pakistan government official had approached them till now, one of the brothers of the girl said that they had set a deadline of Friday, 5 pm (Pakistan time) for government intervention.
