On Friday, Pritam Singh sent a message to the media and some Sikh bodies informing about the incident, Pritam Singh wrote “Meri beti da dharm is wakt khatary vich hai jo is wakt zalima dae sikanjay vich hai (my daughters religion is in danger who is in custody of merciless people at this time )”.
Confirming the incident, Pakistani human rights activist Radesh Singh Tony said that forced conversion had become a regular issue in Pakistan. “The girl is a minor and she was kidnapped about ten days ago, the government should take immediate action to recover the girl and ensure the safety of her and her family.”
