Pakistan: Christian girl rescued from forced conversion, marriage

March 19, 2013

A Pakistani court has annulled the forced marriage of a 14-year-old Christian girl to her Muslim abductor. Rafia Mansha was kidnapped in December and forced to convert to Islam.

Another Christian teen, Ryan Stanton, fled Pakistan with his family after he was accused of sending a text message that blasphemed Muhammad, the founder of Islam. Stanton said that Muslim friends had taken his phone and sent the message.
