Abduction of Bangladeshi girl

BANGLADESH – Twelve-year-old Christian girl kidnapped by Muslim man; family fear the possibility of her forced marriage (i.e. rape!)

A twelve-year-old Christian girl from Boruakona, eastern Bangladesh, was kidnapped by a 35-year-old Muslim man on 26 May. At the time of writing, the girl’s whereabouts are unknown, although the family have expressed concern that she may have been forced into marriage. The girl’s grandfather said that, as well as reporting the kidnap to police, the family also approached local Islamic leaders who “had assured us that we could bring our child back in 24 hours. But nothing. Police have also failed. They say they are searching … As Christians and religious minorities, we are persecuted by the Muslim majority. We can no longer live in this country.”
