“Muslim Father wanted her to marry her stepbrother”, Daughter accepts Hinduism

A video is increasingly becoming viral on social media in which a girl from Badaun, Uttar Pradesh can be seen making serious allegations against her family members. She has alleged that her father Idris Khan, who is a police officer posted in the IG office in Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh, and her brothers have been sexually exploiting her and forcing her to marry her cousin brother. The Badaun girl accused family of sexually exploiting her and forcing her to convert to Islam

The girl fled her house and reached Haridwar Kotwali. She revealed that her mother was a Hindu while her father is a Muslim. She further alleged that her father Idris Khan killed her mother and since then her family has been sexually harassing her and now she is being forced to marry her cousin Waqar Younis. Tired of the exploitation and harassment she left her house and approached Viswa Hindu Parishad and Bajrang Dal activists who brought her to the Haridwar Kotwali on Tuesday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the girl’s father has lodged a missing complaint and based on the complaint the Badaun police reached Haridwar Kotwali to take her back home. But the girl, who is an adult now, has refused to go back home. Reiterating all the allegations in front of the police she has sought police security. The victim, a resident of Badaun, alleged that she had left the house on her own will on November 5. She said that she was repeatedly being sexually exploited and mistreated. Her father was also pressurising her to marry his elder brother’s son Waqar Younis.

The girl also alleged that UP Police is not helping her in this matter. Some of them have good terms with her father and are forcing her to return to UP. She added that she is mature enough and knows what is wrong and right. She refuses to go back to her family members. She also claimed that her family has threatened that all the VHP and Bajrang Dal workers who have been helping her will be killed in ‘encounters’.

The Haridwar police have presented the woman in the City Magistrate Court. City Kotwal Amarjeet Singh told that the girl has been produced in the City Magistrate Court. He said that appropriate action would be taken based on the victim’s complaint.
