Christian Family Appeals to Pakistani PM After Daughter’s Abduction
A distraught Christian family from Wazirabad, Punjab has implored Pakistan’s Prime Minister and Chief Justice to intervene, following their daughter’s disappearance. Fouzia Bibi, the mother of 16-year-old Muskan, says that her daughter vanished from a local market on May 14th, raising fears of abduction. Despite lodging a First Information Report (FIR) with local police, Muskan’s whereabouts remain unknown, with the suspected kidnapper Ahmad Ali still at large.
According to Fouzia, Ali had been persistently following her daughter for a long time. She recounted a disturbing incident where he threatened her with a knife, demanding that she hand over her daughter to him. He even threatened that he would abduct her from their home if necessary.
Following this alarming incident, Asghar, Muskan’s father, immediately sought help from the local council members in their area. The council members assured him that they would address the issue and speak to Ali about his intimidating behaviour towards the family. However, Asghar expressed his disappointment as the council failed to take any action to help them.
In desperation, the family reached out to the police through the 115 helpline, but their pleas for assistance fell on deaf ears. The police neither intervened nor made any effort to speak to the boy to put a stop to the harassment.
