Lambasting at Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan not being able to help Jagjit Kaur, the Sikh girl who was allegedly abducted and forced to convert to Islam in Pakistan, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh on Tuesday offered to help by offering Kaur and her family to settle in India.

Capt Amarinder Singh Tweeted that he extends his full support to the young girl and will be happy to have her and her family settle down in Punjab along with any help needed.

Strongly protesting against the horrific act, Punjab CM Amarinder Singh had earlier too slammed Pakistan PM Imran Khan for not ensuring the safety of minorities in his country. Posting the video of the family of the Sikh girl’s, Amarinder Singh had appealed to Imran Khan and Indian EAM S Jaishankar to take up the matter swiftly.

Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh too had echoed similar sentiments and demanded Imran Khan to take strong action in this case.

The 19-year-old Jagjit Kaur was forcibly converted to Islam and made to marry a Muslim man. The daughter of a ‘granthi’ (priest) at Gurudwara Tambu Sahib was allegedly converted on gunpoint. Reportedly, the Pakistan man, who forcibly converted and married Sikh girl is affiliated to 2008 Mumbai attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed’s proscribed terror outfit Jama’at-ud-Da’wah (JuD).

On August 31, it was reported that the girl was found and returned to her family and 8 subsequent arrests were made in the case, however, later the family released a video in which they confirmed that she had not returned and also said that the reports of her returning and the arrest of kidnappers were fake.

It was reported on September 2 that Kaur was abducted by one of her classmates, Babar Aman, along with Mirza Dilawar Baig, who is a member of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), the party founded by current Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan.

A group of members of the Sikh community on Monday launched a massive protest outside the Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi to protest against the forced conversion of Sikh girls in Pakistan. Reportedly, the protesters were seen burning effigies while demanding protection of the Sikh families residing in Pakistan amid heightened tensions between India and Pakistan.

The police forces posted outside the Pakistan High Commission struggled to contain the protesters behind the barricades while the Sikh protesters climbed over the police posts and raised slogans against Pakistan.

Addition to Sikh protests, people belonging to different faiths and communities took out a march in Delhi on Sunday to protest abduction, forceful conversion and marriage of a Sikh girl to a Muslim man in Pakistan.

They walked from Teen Murti Bhavan to Pakistan High Commission in solidarity with the girl.

In a separate protest, 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.
