Asia Bibi pleads with Pakistani government to help kidnapped Christian girls

Sep 9, 2020 by

From Christian Today:

The Pakistani Government is being urged to help Christian girls abducted, raped and forced to marry their captors.

Asia Bibi, the Christian woman who spent nearly a decade on death row for blasphemy, is calling on the country’s Prime Minister Imran Khan to take action following the high profile kidnappings of Huma Younus and Maira Shahbaz, both 14.

“I know that these girls are being persecuted and I appeal to the Prime Minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan, please help our young girls, because none of them should have to suffer like this,” Bibi told Aid to the Church in Need (ACN).

Maira was abducted at gunpoint in Madina, Punjab, in April, in broad daylight and during the coronavirus lockdown.  She has managed to escape her captor but fears for her life and has now gone into hiding.

Huma was 14 when she was abducted from her home in Karachi last October. She remains with her abductor.
