March 25, 2019: India has sent a note verbal to the Pakistan Foreign Ministry over abduction of two Hindu minor girls in Pakistan and their alleged conversion to Islam. This followed a Twitter spat between External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj and Pakistan’s Information Minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain over the matter on Sunday.

 “India has asked that suitable remedial action be taken by the Pakistan government to protect and promote safety, security and welfare of its own citizens, especially from the minority communities,” a source said.

As the incident, that happened in Pakistan’s Sindh province, raised an uproar among civil society there, Swaraj tweeted on Sunday morning that she had sought a report from the Indian High Commission in Islamabad. The Pakistani Information Minister hit back, noting on Twitter that the matter was Pakistan’s internal issue and adding that it’s not “Modi’s India where minorities are subjugated”.

The sisters, 15 and 13, were abducted on March 20 from their village Hafiz Salman in Ghotki district of Pakistan’s southern province of Sindh, where a majority of the country’s Hindu population lives. Soon after, a video went viral in which a cleric was purportedly shown solemnising the nikah (marriage) of the two girls. In a separate video, the girls can be seen saying they had accepted Islam of their own free will. On Sunday, Prime Minister Imran Khan ordered a probe into the matter.
