Worthy Christian News » Pakistan's High Court forces Christian to remain with Muslim kidnapper

By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent

ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN (Worthy News)– A Christian girl who had been abducted from Sukkur in Sindh was recently remanded to her alleged kidnapper husband by the Sindh High Court after rejecting all appeals by her lawyer to send her home with her father.

Justice Naamatullah Phulpoto rejected the requests of Rebecca's father, Younis Masih, and his lawyer, Mukesh Kumar, to return the girl home to Darul Aman. Instead, she was instructed to go home with her Muslim kidnapper turned husband, Manzar Daharand; Phulpoto then adjourned the case to early November.

Rebbecca, who remained silent during the court proceedings, was accompanied by the son of Mian Mithoo, a politically powerful member of the National Assembly of the ruling Pakistan Peoples Party who himself has been accused of kidnapping non-Muslim girls and arranging their marriages to servants and friends, according to the Pakistan Christian Post.

President of the Pakistan Christian Congress Nazir Bhatti has accused PPP leaders of being involved in the kidnapping and forceful conversion of Christian and Hindu girls to Islam.

He said non-Muslim girls are being kidnapped by PPP members and then either forced to be sex-slaves of Islamic "feudal lords," or sold in marriage to wealthy Muslims in Sindh.

    Heavenly Father, I ask that you would set angels around this girl, and others like her, to protect them. Please send the Holy Spirit to comfort them in the darkest hours. I ask also that you would have mercy on the oppressors, the kidnappers, by striking fear in their hearts of the fact that hell is real, and that it is eternal. May they know that, no matter how dispicable their sins are, that you still love them, but that they need to turn from their evil ways before it is eternally too late. Although they have free will, may they be placed in a position where they have to see things through your eyes, that the world does not revolve around them, nor their fake gods..that their actions hurt hearts and souls, including thjeir own…Lord,may you be glorified regardless of the outcome, and please, also give the father of this girl your peace that goes beyond understanding..we are asking for your mercy, and thanking you for it, in Jesus' name. To God be the glory.

    Know just how she feels, in the USA, we get to be forced to convert to the national faith of Psychology, if a household member abuses us or anyone else in it. Then, our government forces the females in that family to destroy their own marriages, and go be heads of our own households instead, or they take our children taken from us (just for starters). Same, same. Only no ones reports on it, even our Pastors (usually, it doesn't matter what denomination) abdicate all assistance/responsiblity by calling in the government themselves. Then, they wonder at all the "church hopping," sky rocketting divorce rates, and loss of members?

    Over 1/3 of all females in Alaska already have been sexually assaulted.
    We don't have the numbers on male victims.
