India has asked Indian High Commissioner in Pakistan to send a report on incident where two minority Hindu girls – aged 13 and 15 — were abducted on the eve of Holi in Sindh province.
The teenagers — 13 year-old Kaveena (name changed) and 15-year old Neena (name changed) — were kidnapped and forcibly converted to Islam in Ghotki district.
The incident has triggered massive protests of Hindus in Pakistan, seeking stern action against the perpetrators and reminding Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan of his assurance to religious minorities to protect their rights.
Meanwhile, Pakistan Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Chaudhry, in a tweet, described it as his country’s internal issue.
Replying to Chaudhry’s tweet, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj asked him if giving data on abducted Hindu girls is making them nervous. She attributed the nervousness to a guilty conscience.
