AMRITSAR: A six-year-old Sikh girl in Pakistan has reportedly been

converted to

Islam by a tribesman who abducted and held her for more than a month after

her

parents refused to ransom her. This was revealed by intelligence sources

here

on Sunday.

This is reportedly the most sensitive incident of conversion in the recent

past. Earlier, reports of mass conversion of Hindus in Pakistan under

threat

had been pouring in.

According to sources, Harvinder Kaur had been kept in Tirah valley of

Khyber

but no one helped the poor parents who had been running from pillar to post

for

recovery of the child. Reports received by intelligence agencies here state

Harvinder has been given a new name, Amina, by a powerful tribesman

Malikdin

Khel.

It is learnt that, after the news spread and Sikh bodies in Pakistan took

up

the issue, human rights organisations in the country had constituted a

committee to probe the incident.

Sources said the girl's family is being pressurised to not publicise the

issue

and has reportedly been threatened of dire consequences.

Whats so gr8 about this news???? Nothing...

When nobody is bothered when a bunch of Sikhs is converted to Christainity in Punjab because they gaurantee them three meals a day and sufficent money to survive with their families... These news hardly matter...

This is quite a same old story where a girl marries a muslim guy who after quenching his lust sell her to a prostitution centre somewhere in Pakistan... Its not uncommon but the point is that sikh woman still marry Muslims...

Well,

NRI sikhs have money but they are not willing to help their own people but want to go to show of Punjabi Singers.. its kind of ridiculous that from one side we claim that sikhs are rich and stuff and on the other hand our own brothers are converting to other religion not that they have faith in that religion but just to get three times of meal.
