The girl’s father, Ramesh Bheel, said Naukot police had only registered it in the missing persons register and had not registered Rouf and his friends with the FIR.
Bheel said police officers stressed that she must have left with Rouf voluntarily and that he should wait another week before filing a kidnapping case against the accused.
On 19 February, Naukot police called the father and gave him a copy of a certificate dated 18 February stating that the girl had voluntarily converted to Islam. The girl’s name was also changed following the switch, police said.
According to the Naukot Police Inspector, “The girl on the phone confirmed that she had accepted Islam and said she wanted to live with Rouf’s family in Samand Khala, Umarkot.”
The girl’s father now fears he may never see her daughter again because she will marry her captors in three months when she turns professional.
Abductions and forced conversions of Islamic and Hindu girls (mostly Muslim minors) continue unabated in various parts of Pakistan, especially in Sindh province, with little concern from the Pakistani government, human rights organizations, mainstream media and social media platforms. Any concerns and concerns. (ANI)
