Sindh High Court directed a Christian man to allow his minor daughter meet her mother, who converted to Islam in August, daily for one hour till the next date of hearing.

The petitioner, who is now residing with her aunt in North Nazimabad, alleged that her former spouse was threatening her to convert back to Christianity and he also got her terminated from her job in a private bank. She submitted that she came to know that her daughter was being shifted abroad by her former spouse, and prayed the court to include his name on Exit Control List and the minor’s custody be given to her and she be provided protection against harassment by her former spouse.
Following court notice, John Desoza was produced before the court along with the minor by the Frere police. He sought time to engage a counsel. The court, adjourning the matter till November 5, directed him to allow the minor girl meet her mother daily for one hour.
