This young woman is simply one of at least 700 Christian women and girls who are kidnapped each year in Pakistan, and subsequently raped or forced into marriages with Muslim men. Both the rapes and the forced conversion to Islam make their return extremely difficult, even if their families could find them:
The High Court in Multan will judge and determine the truth about the case of Farah Hatim, the Catholic girl kidnapped, Islamized and forced to marry a Muslim man in the city of Rahim Yar Khan in southern Punjab ( see Fides 25/6/2011 and previous days). This is what Paul Bhatti, Special Advisor to the Prime Minister for Religious Minorities Affairs in Pakistan and leader of APMA (All Pakistan Minorities Alliance) tells Fides. APMA had tried to mediate in recent days, asking the Muslim family with whom Farah is now, to meet the girl, repeating the official request by a judge of the Court of First Instance in Rahim Yar Khan. The attempt failed (see Fides 07/07/2011) because the family did not appear and the judge himself said to "consider the case closed".
So the challenges include living as a small Christian minority where the police won't take your claims seriously, the neighbours obstinately refuse to help, the courts slam the door on open cases, the bureaucracy won't change ID cards back to Christian (despite forced conversions) and the cultural damage to a girl who has lost her virginity or left a marriage (no matter the circumstances). When priests or bishops make too much of a fuss, they are either harmed or have their churches burned, and any closely related to the protest will lose their jobs.
Raymond Ibrahim lists some more cases here, though of course the phenomenon is not limited to Pakistan. Furthermore, immigrants who leave these regions often bring their cultural constructs with them. I'm still looking for feminists who seem to care, though this ardently secular woman did have some squeamish moments about this story. It's a start...
