Forcibly-married 14-year-old Maira hopes for Easter miracle

Maira* loved to sing hymns at her church’s Easter service.

This Easter, she is forced to hide rather than be able to join in celebrations. She had been abducted, forcibly married to a much older Muslim man, and must now wait in hiding after escaping.

Forced “conversion” through marriage affects an estimated 1,000 girls from religious minorities in Pakistan every year.
