A report released by the Aurat Foundation states that every year over 1000 women from religious minority groups are abducted, raped, and forcibly married to their rapist as they are forcibly converted to Islam.
Forced marriages usually follow a similar pattern: girls, often between the ages of 12 and 25, are abducted, made to convert to Islam, and then married to the abductor or an associate.
Women face significant discrimination, particularly on a religious basis. Those who are forced to marry are often threatened and pressurised by their husband and his family to declare that their conversion was voluntary, even if the case is taken to court.
Forced marriages and conversions are common practice in Pakistan, but are largely ignored by police and civil authorities.
