Pakistan Christian girls forced to convert to Islam, marry Muslims

Two Christian girls aged 11 and 16 have been kidnapped, forcibly converted to Islam, and married off to Muslim strangers.

An AsiaNews correspondent in Pakistan's third largest city of Faisalabad says the kidnaps were completely ignored by police.

A human rights activist says this phenomenon is not new, but on the increase.

On 5 August, Muhammad Adnan, a Muslim, and his sister, kidnapped an 11 year old Christian girl named Zunaira. They forced her to convert to Islam and marry Muhammad.
