Kidnapped & forced to marry her kidnapper

In October 2019, 14-year-old Christian girl, Huma Younus, was kidnapped from her family’s home in Zia Colony, Karachi & forced to marry her kidnapper, Abdul Jabbar, of another faith.

Huma’s parents have taken the matter to court and there were several hearings regarding the validity of the marriage of an underaged girl without her guardian’s consent. The court ruled in favour of her kidnapper and Huma’s parents have filled an appeal against it. The hearing of the appeal has been scheduled on March 4th this year.

In the meantime, Huma’s family are not allowed to see her and they are concerned for her safety and well-being.

Sneha is another 14-year-old Christian girl who was kidnapped while returning home from school. She was forced into a vehicle, taken to an unknown location, tortured and raped multiple times. She was also forced to convert to another faith and then married to her kidnapper. Thankfully, Sneha was recovered five days later and returned to her family. With the help of human rights advocates, the family is pursuing legal action against the kidnappers but have been forced into hiding for their safety.

Please pray that Huma’s family will be successful in their upcoming appeal and that Huma will be able to return home to her parents and family.

Pray also for Sneha and the many other Christian girls in Pakistan who have been victimized and forced into either marriage outside of their faith or forced into prostitution against their will.

Pray that God will intervene in each situation, rescuing these precious young lives from further assault on their dignity and well-being. Pray also that they will receive much needed healing – spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically.

Please share this prayer request.
