A Catholic teenager has been forcibly married to a Muslim man in Pakistan

A Muslim in Faisalabad, Pakistan who abducted a 15-year-old Roman Catholic girl has forced her to marry him and convert to Islam, but police reportedly refuse to help the family,


Nadeem Masih, a sanitation worker at a textile factory, told Morning Star News that his daughter, Saba Masih, was abducted on May 20 from the Madina Town area of Faisalabad when she and her older sister were on their way to work.

Their 45-year-old neighbor, Muhammad Yasir, forcibly took Saba away in a rickshaw, Masih said. “Yasir has already been married thrice but does not have children from either of his wives,” he said.

The family called police soon after Masih’s older daughter informed them of Saba’s abduction, but there has been no progress in the case, he said.
