HYDERABAD October 10, 2012. By Abbas Kassar

A 22 year old Christian girl named Rebecca; resident of Mariam Colony Sukkur was kidnapped by armed men hired by Mian Aslam son of Mian Mithoo, Member of Parliament of Pakistan (National Assembly). The kidnapping occurred while Rebecca was on her way to work as a Nurse on October 02, 2012. She was taken captive to Bharchoondi the Haveli (Residence) of Mian Mithoo, who is also a politically influential Pir (religious leader) of the area. While there, she was forcibly converted to Islam and married to one Manzar Dahar, a disciple of Pir Mian Mithoo.

When the parents of converted girl came to know about her kidnapping and forced conversion, they were threatened by Mian Aslam the son and instigator of the kidnapping, who warned her family to remain silent or face dangerous consequences. This is not the first time that an incident has occurred and it has been reported that MNA Mian Mithoo (of the ruling Pakistan People's Party) is notorious for kidnapping non-Muslim girls, holding them captive at his Haveli, forcibly converting and marrying them to his disciples or servants.

MNA Mithoo is also the criminal behind the  infamous case of the young Hindu girl Rinkel Kumari; who was also kidnapped from her family and married to his follower. This case made headlines worldwide, however was ignored completely by Chief Justice of Pakistan Iftikhar Chowdhry; who refused to rescue the Hindu girl and instead handed her to her kidnappers. As usual, he seems utterly helpless in matters of violence against non-Muslims in Pakistan.

Rebecca's parents along with Christian supporters had held protest demonstration in front of the Press Club, Sukkur and tried to file a police report, which the authorities would not allow.

Rebecca is the daughter of Younus Masih, her family is heartbroken. After marriage she has been renamed Kalsoom as often happens to persons converting into Islam --to destroy their former identities and remove them from their former lives.

Younus Masih has witnessed that although police DSP Abdul Rehman Sheerazi was approached to support their request to file an FIR, he too refused to entertain their complaint and asked them to remain silent. They have made an appeal to the president of Pakistan and international community at large begging for someone to help them recover their beloved daughter from these tyrants.
