Pakistan: Police Reluctant to Register Crimes with Religious Elements

AsiaNews reports that an 18-year-old Christian girl was abducted and raped by a man who forced her to convert to Islam, but despite the gravity of the case, police in the area were reluctant to register a complaint, fearing repercussions because of the religious element of the attack. The girl, Razia, who was abducted on October 31, found her way back to her family ten days later and is currently receiving medical attention. Meanwhile, her attacker is still free.
