The Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) on Friday demanded a probe into a Punjab woman pilgrim’s conversion to Islam and re-marriage with a Lahore-based Pakistani national.
“The VHP demands a thorough investigation into Kiran Bala’s mysterious disappearance, religious conversion, remarriage and unwillingness to return to India,” a VHP release said.
VHP Working President Alok Kumar called the development serious in view of the alleged involvement of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence.
“The incident has stunned not only her family members but the entire nation,” the release said.
The woman left for Pakistan on a pilgrimage as part of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee delegation on April 12 and reportedly went missing on April 16. Her passport had a Pakistani visa valid till April 21.
