In November 2014, 13-year old Mavi from one of Pakistan’s most marginalized communities was abducted and forced to marry an older man against her will. She is one of many Pakistani Hindu girls being forced into marriages and religious conversions. Mavi is also one of the luckier victims, after aster the Sindh Court’s ruling in her and her family’s favor in early 2015 she was reunited with her family. The perpetrator has, however, been acquitted.
Our local partner, Pakistan Hindu Seva, interviewed Mavi Kolhi after the Court hearing.

Other victims of such heinous crimes are not so fortunate.
