Sirsa thanked the government of India and the media for its overwhelming support on the issue and stressed this fight is not only about Kaur but also a fight for all Hindu and Sikh girls who are facing the threat of forceful conversion to Islam and are being forcibly married to Muslim men.

Sirsa also released a list of 31 Hindu and Sikh girls who were abducted forcefully, converted to Islam and then married to Muslim men during last two and a half months in Pakistan.

Today, Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh had also offered to help Kaur by offering her and her family to settle in India. Lambasting Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan for not being able to help Kaur, 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.

The 19-year-old 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).

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.

There were widespread protests where PM Khan’s effigies were burnt, slogans were raised to protest abduction, forceful conversion and marriage of a Sikh girl to a Muslim man in Pakistan.

Pakistan is notoriously known for its persecution of not only religious minorities but also ethnic minorities within their own country. The forceful conversion programs have often been unleashed against the minorities especially Christians, Sikhs and Hindus living in Pakistan with utmost brutality. There have been many such cases reported in the recent past.

Recently, a report released by the Members of the European Parliament (MEP) threw light on the plight of religious minorities in Pakistan. The report claims that around 1000 girls from religious minorities are forcibly converted to Islam every year. The numbers might be higher as many cases are not even reported.
