Jacobabad: Members of the Hindu community recently staged protests here after a court in Pakistan did not record statement of minor Hindu girl Mehak Kumari who was allegedly kidnapped and then converted to Islam forcibly and was married to a man named Ali Raza Machi.

The protest took place in Jacobabad.


The incident remained as another instance of persecution of minorities in the Muslim-dominated South Asian nation.


The protest came as the second hearing in the case of the alleged forced conversion of 15-year-old Mehak Kumari, a Pakistani Hindu girl, was deferred after the judge cancelled it, saying he was unwell, reported Sputnik news agency.


The protesters could be seen holding placards which read: "Mehak Kumari Wants Justice."

Sharing the video of the protest, journalist Ravinder Singh Robin tweeted: "#Breaking;Hindu community in #Jacobabd,Pakistan staged protest after court didn’t recorded statement of minor #HinduGirl #MehakKumari who was allegedly kidnapped, converted to #Islam & married to a Muslim. Pak Rangers sealed the city to stop Hindus to assemble in favour of #Mehak."
