Pakistan Forced Conversions

(Police officers escort Arzoo Raja, center, a teenage Christian girl, who was allegedly abducted and forced to convert and marry a 44-year old Muslim, while they leave after appearance before the High Court, in Karachi, Pakistan, Nov. 3, 2020. Rights groups say each year in Pakistan, as many as 1,000 girls are forcibly converted to Islam, often after being abducted or tricked. Most are then married off, frequently to older men. Activists say the practice has accelerated during lockdowns against the coronavirus, when girls are out of school and more visible, bride traffickers are more active on the Internet and families are more in debt.
