Saima’s family

A fifteen year old Christian girl Saima Masih became the latest victim of abduction, rape and forced Islamic marriage in Pakistan, when she was kidnapped on 3rd January 2015.

Saima and her family were worshipping at their local church in Kasur, on Sunday 3rd January. During the service Saima felt thirsty so she went out to drink some water. To the dismay of her family she never returned as she had been kidnapped by a local Muslim man by the name of Munir, who took her to his home town of Harrapa 184km away. Here he forced her to marry her despite her age being below the legal age of consent which is 16. Munir owned the local fields were the family of Saima and other local people were hired as labourers and was spotted taking Saima with him.
