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."

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.'
