Forced conversion of Sikh girl to Islam: AISSF activists stage protest outside Pakistan High Commission’s office

NEW DELHI, India—In protest of the alleged abduction and forced conversion of a Sikh girl in Nankana Sahib (Pakistan), a faction of All India Sikh Students Federation headed by Manjit Singh Bhoma today staged a demonstration outside the Pakistani High Commission’s office in New Delhi. AISSF veterans Sarabjit Singh Jammu and Kuldeep Singh Majitha were also present on this occasion.

The protesting Sikh leaders demanded that the Pakistan government should deliver justice to the victim Sikh family by punishing all the guilty people in a strict manner so that no one could dare in the future to commit such a heinous crime.

It may be recalled here that an incident of the alleged abduction of a Sikh girl and her conversion to Islam by a Muslim youth in Pakistan has come to limelight on August 29. It had come to fore that the Muslim youth married a Sikh girl named Jagjit Kaur after abducting her on gunpoint. 

Manmohan Singh, brother of Jagjit Kaur, had said in a video that her sister was threatened to accept Islam by the abductor by saying that her brothers and father would be shot if she did not accept Islam. “I request Imran Khan and Army Chief of Pakistan to help us in bringing the girl back so that it does not backfire on them on the Kartarpur and Kashmir issues,” he had said.

Meanwhile, it is learnt that the Nankana Sahib police have arrested eight people involved in this case. Some local media reports are claiming that the Sikh girl has been united back with the family, however it has been learnt that the Sikh girl is still under custody of the police and the family members were shown the girl from a large distance.
