Appeal to Pope for Huma, 14yo Christian girl abducted by a Muslim and forcibly converted to Islam for marriage


by Fabio Giuseppe Carlo Carisio for VT Italy

The parents appeal to Pope Francis to intervene to help them bring home their 14-year-old Christian daughter abducted by a Muslim and forcibly converted to Islam to have the legal motivation with which to marry her. This is happening in Pakistan, where Asia Bibi has lived her long imprisonment, so the threats of the Islamic man are arriving.

“If you don’t stop looking for your daughter, we’ll accuse you of blasphemy.”

These are the threats of the Muslim Abdul Jabbar to Huma Younas’ parents and lawyer. The family’s lawyer, Tabassum Yousaf, reported this to the pontifical foudation Aid to the Church in Suffering (ACS). It is the latest development of the dramatic story of the fourteen-year-old Christian abducted in Karachi, Pakistan on October 10 last year, converted by force and forced to marry her kidnapper, the Muslim Jabbar.

“It often happens that the kidnappers threaten family members to accuse them of blasphemy – explains the Catholic lawyer – an accusation that in Pakistan involves the death sentence”. As Asia Bibi, the peasant mother of five children, risked just for defending her faith in Christ.


In cases like Huma’s it is very difficult for families to get justice. “Christians are poorly educated and do not know their rights – continues Yousaf – and are too poor to bear the legal costs necessary to take the case to court. So the kidnappers have the upper hand, often thanks also to the same police officers who in addition to discouraging parents, tell the kidnappers the legal loopholes to use “.

It is unfortunately a dramatic pattern that is repeated every time a Christian girl – even a minor like in the case of Huma – is kidnapped, raped, forced to convert and marry her tormentor.

“Faced with the tragedy of this teenager and her parents, Aid to the Church in Suffering is not indifferent – says Alessandro Monteduro, director of ACS-Italy – We will support all the family’s legal fees. So that for once the Christians of Pakistan can have justice. Our hope is also that a possible favorable outcome of the affair may discourage new forced conversions of Christian youth “.


In a video recorded in Pakistan and circulated to the international media, the parents also addressed” to the Holy Father Francis, to the international community, to the Pakistani politician Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, son of the former premier Benazir Bhutto’s death, to the country’s premier, to the president of the Supreme Court, to the head of the armed forces. They ask for an urgent intervention “, underlines the lawyer, also a Christian.


Lawyer Yousaf has filed a petition with the High Court of Sindh, the province of Karachi, denouncing Adbul Jabbar for kidnapping, forced conversion and forced marriage. Despite the fact that the family presented the girl’s birth and baptismal certificates, attesting that Huma is 14 years old, her abductor claims that the young woman actually has 18 years. Probably helped by local police officers, the man also filed a lawsuit against Huma’s parents.

“Unfortunately in Pakistan, even if you are right, it is not so easy to obtain justice,” explains Tabassum Yousaf.

The involvement of local politicians and media will still be fundamental, as they have remained silent despite the interest of international media in the affair. That is why this morning, at 10am Italian time (14 local time), the lawyer and parents demonstrated publicly in front of the Karachi Press Club. “If no one intervenes locally – adds the lawyer – the risk is that Huma can no longer return home.”

  1. Why doesn’t Imran Khan at least seek to intervene, and additionally push for civiised legislation ? He should be sufficiently familiar with our Western values – at least our Christian ones – and I don’t doubt, true Muslem ones as well.

  2. Interesting timing on the report about Peters Pence only distributing 10 % of proceeds to the needy. The single most trusted Charitable Intention is Peters Pence which most Catholics think is 100 % distributed directly to the poor and starving children or other “extreme needs”.
    The most recent publicly reported distribution of PP, was to migrants forced to camp in Mexico for months on end. The amount was $500,000 , and occurred directly after the Comptroller of NYS accompanied several Catholic officials to Central America to make an assessment. Using the formula, that means $5,000,000,000 of PP was spent on administrative or “movie ” investments such as the Elton John Biopic, which was the first movie to depict Gay male sex scenes in major motion picture. The Vatican priorities are clear.

    • Should be 5 million, $5,000,000. Other investments from PP were in the movie “Men in Black:International” and as I have consistently said, depicting ‘aliens” as demons, and then also supporting the notion they are present in our lives, serves the Catholic agenda. men in Black and the Black robes. This is not a spiritual endeavor. This entity and other religious orgs, must be kept at a fair distance from our policy makers in the US and recent statements such as Mike Pence’s (irony) statement he is a christian first and politician second, should be a disqualifier for office in any capacity.

  3. To move beyond trust, is the step toward sovereignty. Trust is a false belief, that the establishment of it, can form a contract without verbal or written proof. In the world of interaction, it is a small thing, and quite normally unnecessary. it is a step by step thing, not given lightly. So, if a Pope is seen as a trustworthy thing, then I would say, it should be established step by step just as any person to another, piece by piece. A title alone, has proven over and over unworthy of trust. It is a personal thing, no matter the situation. I do not trust the Pope and would never recommend such a thing. It has not been proven and in fact shown otherwise.
