Reena Meghwar handed over to the family
Reena Meghwar, a woman who hails from a Hindu minority community of Sindh province of Pakistan, has been handed over to her parents after a court order. Reena Meghwar told that she had tied Rakhi to Kasim Kashkheli on the occasion of Rakshabandhan. Qasim lived in the neighborhood of Reena and by tying Rakhi, he considered him as his brother. But this ‘brother’ did something which has put humanity to shame. Qasim kidnapped Reena and converted her and married her.
Reena pleaded with the world for help and on seeing her video became viral. But after this the pressure started increasing in Pakistan, which was the reason why the Pakistani court ordered Reena Meghwar to be handed over to her parents. There are also allegations that the woman was tortured and that Kasim Kashkheli married her on the basis of false documents showing that she was a Muslim. Reena Meghwar was kidnapped on February 13 by Qasim Kashkheli from Keriogjar area of Badin district of southern Sindh province.
