That the conversion-by-forced-marriage trend is inspired and imported from a global Islamist agenda, is not in any doubt. According to the Movement for Solidarity and Peace, a research, education and advocacy group, 700 non-Muslim girls are converted to Islam each year in Pakistan.
In a recent such incident, 15-year-old Saima Bibi was abducted by a group of Muslim men, forced to convert to Islam, and marry one of her kidnappers. The family filed a complaint with police against her captors, showing her birth certificate confirming she is beneath the legal age for marriage in the country. The Police, however, insisted that they have official documents proving the marriage and confirming that Saima has converted to Islam. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2016/01/14/pakistani-family-says-teenage-christian-daughter-kidnapped-forced-to-convert-to-islam-and-marry-her-abductor/.
Sardar Mushtaq Gill, a Christian lawyer and head of Legal Evangelical Association Development, explains that it is common in cases like this for perpetrators to take a plea of marriage and conversion to Islam in order to “save themselves from criminal charges of rape and kidnapping.”
