Earlier this month, the case of Arzoo Raja, a teenage girl from the Christian community in Karachi, who was allegedly forced into marriage to a 40-year-old man after being converted to Islam, made headlines.
She was eventually moved to a shelter house on the court’s orders but the case revealed the impunity enjoyed by the perpetrators of forced conversions.
