Karachi: The Sindh assembly in Pakistan on Thursday saw lawmakers expressing concern over the abduction of a Hindu teenage girl as they demanded exemplary punishment for the abductors, media reports said.

Pakistan Peoples Party MPA Lal Chand Ukrani rose with the permission of Speaker Agha Siraj Durrani and expressed his anger and grief over the abduction of the minority girl, reports Dawn News.

He said the entire community was in a state of shock and distressed over the kidnapping of the teenage girl.

Speaker Durrani intercepted him reminding that he could speak on the issue on a point of order and asked him to sit on his seat, reports Dawn News.

Later, speaking on the point of order, he termed the incident a cruelty and said no religion permitted forced marriages and conversions.

He told the House that a 14-year-old girl belonging to the Hindu community was abducted in Qazi Ahmad and later her marriage certificate was presented.

“We respect every religion, but it is not appropriate to change someone’s religion by force,” he said adding that there was wide protest across the province over the incident.

Provincial Minister Giyan Chand Essrani described the incident as sad.
