'She's an adult as she has had her 1st period' says judges on minor Catholic girl's forced conversion, marriage

The cases of crime that are coming up today are shocking. Now the matter which we have brought today is from Pakistan where two judges from the hearing of the case related to the 14-year-old girl have said that, "If the first period of the girl has arrived, she will be considered an adult." In this case, the father of a Catholic girl named Huma Yunus has alleged that 'Huma was abducted from her house in Karachi. Later Huma converted to Islam and married a Muslim man.

According to the news received in this case, Huma's parents have not been able to meet her since the incident of kidnapping on 14 October 2019. The case of Sindh High Court, Muhammad Iqbal Kalhoro and Irshad Ali Shah are being heard in this case. Let us tell you that while hearing the case this week, the judges said, 'If Huma's first period has come, she will be considered an adult under Islamic Sharia law and her marriage to Abdul Jabbar will be considered valid. Because now Huma says that she has married without any pressure and her own will.

Huma's parents were surprised by the comment of the bench of 2 judges. During this time Huma's father Yunus Christ said, 'We are shocked that the judges did not consider our evidence and cited Sharia law to justify marriage.' Let us tell you that the High Court has not yet given the final verdict. After hearing the case on February 3, the court gave the officials more time to decide the age of Huma and now the hearing of this case will be on March 3, 2020.
