How Two Kidnapped, Rapped Christian Sisters were Rescued in Pakistan
The two Christian sisters, Parvisha, 18, and Sanam, 14 who were reported to have been kidnapped and rapped repeatedly by two Muslim men have been rescued after all.
The two girls, daughters of one local Pastor, Sharif Alam, International Christian Concern (ICC) reported were tricked by a neighbor, Muhammad Irfan, through a phone call that he was going to offer them a training in cosmetology and then after provide jobs for them in his beauty salon.
“Parvisha, the oldest of seven children, convinced her father, to allow her to take the opportunity so that she could help support their struggling family. Irfan told the girls that he would come to pick them up since they did not know where his shop was,” the report said.
Not smelling any rat, the father of the two girls obliged them, so they were picked up by Irfan with the help of another man, Muhammed Mehboob, who drove them 30 minutes away from home and stopped to get drinks.
According to the report, the girls' drinks were heavily drugged and when the sisters came to their senses, they found themselves locked in a small hotel room almost 500 miles away from their home in Gujranwala.
It stated that at gunpoint, the girls were told that if they tried to escape or made any noise they and all of their family would be killed adding that during the night, each man raped both girls repeatedly.
“The next day the men drove the sisters to Karachi where they stayed at Mehboob's brother-in-law's house. There again they repeatedly raped both girls over several days and then took them to an Islamic religious school where they forced them to convert to Islam. Parvisha and Sanam were given Muslim names and told that if they cooperated they would be released soon,” ICC report added.
It noted that both sisters were then taken to local law office by Irfan and Mehboob, where they met with two lawyers, Nayer Zia-Ul-Din and Kokab Sahab-Ul-Din, and told the lawyers that both girls had embraced Islam and wished to stay in a government run shelter home for women.
It stated: “The lawyers asked the girls to sign a blank sheet. Irfan told the girls that the lawyers would present them in the court tomorrow and then they would be free to go. Irfan and Mehboob then left, leaving the girls with the two lawyers.”
It added that the lawyers then told the girls that since they had no place to spend the night, they could come with them and stay with their family and that they took the girls to their apartment stating that the lawyers waited until both girls fell asleep and then dragged Parvisha into another room where they raped her. “Sanam woke up when she heard someone crying and yelling for help. She ran out of the room and saw both lawyers inserting electrical equipment into Parvisha's private parts.”
The report continued: “While Sanam was looking for a weapon she could use to defend her sister, she saw a cell phone lying on the table, grabbed the phone and dialed the emergency mobile police number. Within no time the police arrived and arrested Kokab Sahab-Ul-Din. An FIR was registered against him. Parvisha was immediately taken to the hospital. Sanam called her father from the police station, informing him of the situation. Pastor Sharif Alam rushed to Karachi to bring his daughters back home.”
