Karachi, Mar. 25 (ANI): The Sindh High Court has ordered Karachi Police to recover and produce two Hindu girls, who reportedly converted to Islam, on April 9 to record their statements.
Earlier, Mohandas, the father of Monika Bai and Lilawanti, had alleged that a Maulvi at Mirpurkhas had abducted his daughters and converted them to Islam.
He further claimed that he was allowed to meet his daughters only in presence of an armed Madrassa official, who asked him to convert to Islam if wanted to reunite with his daughters.
The division bench has directed the Karachi Police to bring the girls in Judges chamber in absence of any Madrassa official.
However, Maulana Masood Baig of Jamia Binora, who is charged for kidnapping, appeared before the court claiming that girls had left their family on their own. And, they also filed a petition against their father, he added.
The bench decided to ascertain that girls are legally competent to decide for themselves whether they have converted. (ANI)
