On 28th April,2012 Tania Rubecca, resident of Village Daultabad ,Tehsil Manawala , District Shiekhpura was kidnapped and forcibly converted to Islam. The Aggrieved family luckily traced the kidnappers through cell phone number.

According to Tania “ On the day of incident, I left home at around 9:00 A.M for Nankana City to my maternal uncle’s home . I was stopped by Rehana who offered to sit in the car and they would drop me to my uncle’s home. I accepted the offer and sat in the car as Rehana is well known to me. when I sat in the Car, I Observed that there were three men in the car, Muhammad Ashraf ( the Husband of Rehana ) ,Rehana’s Son , and an unknow driver. When I tried to resist they warned me and threatened me that if I would make a noise they would kill me . Then Rehana informed me that we are taking you to Multan for the delivery of their relative . Afterwards they put toxic powder in my eyes and put black scraf on my eyes and started beating me. However I realized that they have kidnapped me . They informed my family that they are taking me to Multan for a delivery .

Rehana and Ashraf took me to Dera Ghazi Khan and handed over me to Muhammad Zafar . I was completely out of mind and unable to understand the situation . Rehana and Ashraf left the place , Then Muhammad Zafar Sexually harassed me .Even his family members were forcing me to convert to Islam. I totally refused to Embrace Islam. Later on I was sent to Muhammad Ismael aged 50 – and Khadim Hussain aged 45, the resident of Nawan Janoobi Dera Ghazi Khan. I was Completely unaware of my sale and purchase . Both of them raped me again and again.”

During this time the family of Tania was doing their best to track their daughter. They were lucky to track Muhammad Zafar through his cell phone SIM.

But when Robert (Brother of Tania) and Shafaqat Masih went to Dera Ghazi Khan to find Tania , Muhammad Zafar refused to tell anything about Tania . However with the intervention of the Ex-Mayor of Dera Ghazi Khan, Muhammad Khan Khachela, they were able to get the exact location of Tania. Muhammad Zafar Informed the police and Muhammad Khan Khachela that they have paid 85,000 PKR for Tania . Muhammad Zafar said that if they are able to pay us 95,000 PKR we are ready to set Tania free. Muhammad Zafar also told that presently she is in the custody of Khadim Hussain and Ismael .

Tania’s Mother immediately give their house on lease on 200,000 PKR . On 1st June ,2012 Robert (Brother of Tania) and Shafaqat Masih went to Dera Ghazi Khan, there they came to know that Khadim Hussian and Ismael had sold her to Atta Muhammad and Rub Nawaz . After knowing this, Ex-Mayor Muhammad Khan Khachela called Atta Muhammad and Rub Nawaz to bring the girl . Firstly they were not agree to return the girl but later on they agreed to return the girl . After the Long struggle Tania Rebecca was recovered by the family after paying the amount of 95,000 PKR .

A prejudiced action was shown by the police that there was an FIR (First Information Registered) against the culprits but police did not arrest them. And Still Tania and her family is receiving threats from these Culprits as well as from the Police . Twice unknown people visited the house of Tania’s parents to get Tania Back.

When she was recovered, one Pakistani NGO started claiming in the international Community that they are helping this persecuted Girl, whereas her experience with the NGO is bitter. Which we will definitely unveil in her Interview.

Awful Torture:

During a counseling class with Tania we found that she was very much ill-treated physically and mentally, you cannot even imagine the torture suffered by Tania. The abductors treated her like barbarically . But it is shameful for A Human rights and Christian Rights Organization who only used her for their benefits. We would request the international community to look in such matters closly and support the victims directly rather than giving money to such people and Organizations.
