Pre-teen Christian Girls Forced to Convert and Marry

Another one for the all religions and all cultures are equal file . . .

Saba and Anila Younis, sisters from a Christian family. They are 12 and 10 years old respectively. They were kidnapped on June 26 on their way to their uncle’s house in the Punjab province of Pakistan. When their father went to the police to complain about the kidnapping, he was threatened. By the 28th, their kidnappers had married them and filed with the police for custody of them. Their husbands declared that the girls had converted to Islam.

Apparently in Pakistan if a man finds a 10-year-old that he just can’t resist, he kidnaps her. If she’s not Muslim, he wants her converted, because even though it is legal for a Muslim man to marry a non-Muslim woman, there’s no reason he should have to have a kafir as one of his wives. I’m not sure if a man has to file for custody of any of his wives in Pakistan, or if it is just for those under 13.

As reported by Ecumenical News International, a court has agreed that the forced conversion was pefectly legal. There appears to have been to no challenge to the legality of the forced marriage.

This is by no means a unique situation. In a blog describing the hundreds of forced conversions to Islam in Pakistan, there is a quote from US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice telling President Musharraf at a 2005 meeting that Pakistan is “a model country for the Muslim world”.

    The reason Rice and the rest of the Bushies spend so much time with their lips fastened to Mushie’s butt is because he has Nukes, and he’s keeping O-sum-guy Bin Forgotten out of circulation and well supplied with Welsh goats, video camcorders, and coffee.
    I can’t figure this out. A government with a relatively stable government and fairly sane Mullahs can’t have Nuke plants (for whatever reason) because Wolfowitz and the rest of the PNAC idiots said so, yet a powder keg with a dictator who lost the election yet refuses to step down (or did he just “retire” from the army? I can’t keep all these tin-horns straight) where they decide the outcome of elections with bombs and hide our Most Wanted, and can’t control who’s running the western part of their country are JUST the kind of folks we want to have Le Bombe in the region.

    How long do you suppose it’ll be before this case is cited as precedence in a British Paedophile trial?
