Shiromani Akali Dal leader Manjinder Singh Sirsa on Wednesday took to his official Twitter handle and wrote about the forced abduction, conversion, and forced wedding of a 14-year-old Hindu girl Mehak from Jacobabad, Pakistan.
Releasing a video, Sirsa demanded that India should pressurize Pakistan into returning the minor girl to her parents.
Sirsa's tweet roughly translates to, "14-year-old Mehak was first abducted and then forced to marry. They are not even letting her go back to her parents. The entire Pakistani system is against minorities. In a situation like this, help from the Indian government is their last hope."
जैकबाबाद में 14 साल की महक को पहले अगवा किया गया, ज़बरन निकाह किया और अब उसे उसके माँ बाप के पास वापस भी नहीं दिया जा रहा— Manjinder S Sirsa (@mssirsa) February 5, 2020
पाकिस्तान का पूरा सिस्टम अल्पसंख्यकों के ख़िलाफ़ है
ऐसे में भारत सरकार से मदद ही उनकी आख़िरी उम्मीद है @AmitShah जी@ANI @TimesNow @republic @thetribunechd pic.twitter.com/rBVsoFwgef
Calling it a clear violation of Human rights, Sirsa also further tweeted the Verification certificate of the Pakistani minor girl Mehak and also called out the Pakistani judiciary for 'acting biased.'

Earlier on January 24, Shiromani Akali Dal MLA Manjinder S Sirsa lashed out at Pakistan over a new case of forced conversion of a Hindu girl into Islam saying that the trend won't stop until India raises the issue and the United Nations take action. He was referring to an Urdu news article where the forced marriage of a girl Saanwri to Shafkat Hussain in Liyaqaitpur was reported. Sirsa has been vocal about his criticism of Pakistan over its treatment of minorities.
