A Muslim man in Pakistan kidnapped a Christian girl and made her into his sex slave. She managed to escape but the police have forced her back into sex slavery. As we read in one report:
A Pakistani Christian mother who was kidnapped and forced into an Islamic marriage with her Muslim landlord and then escaped months later has been returned to her abductor by her own family in hopes that it will spare the rest of the family from extreme persecution and arrest.
As The Christian Post previously reported, Fouzia Sadiq, a 30-year-old mother of three whose entire family works as bonded laborers in Pattoki, was abducted last July by her Muslim landlord named Muhammed Nazir.
Although Fouzia’s brother, Paris, went looking for her at Nazir’s house, he was told that Fouzia had entered into a marriage with Nazir and that she was now his property.
After months of Fouzia being held captive by Nazir, the family devised a plan to help Fouzia escape. And in February, Fouzia fled from the clutches of her abductor.
After Fouzia escaped, Nazir responded by filing a police report accusing Fouzia of stealing jewelry. On the day of Fauzia’s escape, police officers went to her family’s home at a time when only her elderly father was there and threatened to arrest a member of the family if Fouzia was not returned to Nazir.
At the time, the humanitarian organization British Pakistani Christian Association stated that if the police had caught Fouzia’s brother, he likely would have been tortured or killed. And If the police had caught Fouzia’s younger sister, she likely would have been taken to Nazir as consolation.
The BPCA offered to house Fouzia, her brother and sister in a safehouse inside Pakistan and even filed inquiries with the British Embassy and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees requesting asylum for Fouzia, her brother and sister.
Unfortunately, the British High Commission in Pakistan replied saying that asylum could not be offered because protocol doesn’t allow for consideration of asylum applications lodged abroad. Additionally, the U.N. High Commission for Refugees did not respond to the BPCA inquiry.
As BPCA was not able to procure rental property inside Pakistan fast enough and asked the family to stay with another persecuted Christian family in a house inside Pakistan, the family decided it would be in the best interest of the entire family to return Fouzia to Nazir so that Paris and other members of the family don’t face severe persecution or arrest.
“This family has gone through a torturous decision making process,” BPCA President Wilson Chowdhry told CP in an email Monday.
“They have not wanted to deliver their daughter back but the threats on their family were so extreme, including potential blasphemy law allegations and kidnap charges against Paris the brother of Fouzia, that they felt there was no other way out,” Chowdhry said. “This was an extremely low point for the BPCA and despite our remonstrations they went ahead with this plan of action completely sapped of any morale. We offered a home and much more support but the family chose to stay with an uncle rather than inconvenience the family whose home we were asking them share, whilst we sourced a more permanent safe house.”
