Karachi, Apr 16(ANI): The Hindu community has rejected the claims of 15-year-old Asha Kumari that she embraced Islam and married a Muslim man by her choice.
Patron of the Pakistan Hindu Council, Ramesh Kumar described Asha's appearance as merely a drama staged by kidnappers.
"She came to record her statement before the date of her hearing which is on April 18.No statement was recorded but she spoke to the media in the presence of Mian Mitho's sons and said that she converted of her own choice," he added.
"She was kidnapped from a beauty parlour and for more than forty days, there was no news about her whereabouts. On April 13, she suddenly turns up at the Supreme Court and says that she chose to change her religion. What is this?" The Express Tribune quoted Asha's uncle, Sundar Das, as saying
Das said that Asha's family refused to believe her statement, as they know that she was forcefully converted and married off.
The community blamed a lawmaker, Abdul Haq aka Mian Mitho for backing Asha's alleged kidnapping, conversion and marriage and demanded be taken action against him. (ANI)
