“Well of Death” Girl who was forced to marry terrorist narrates Pakistan

“Pakistan is like a well of death”, said Uzma Ahmed, the Indian woman came back to the country from Pakistan where she was forced and duped into marrying against her choice.

“I am an orphan. I am an adopted child and have nobody,” Uzma told reporters in Delhi, hours after she crossed into India through the Wagah border, a day after the Islamabad high court permitted her to travel home.

 “It is easy to go, but tough to return”.“They could have sold me or used me in a risky operation,” she said about a family in Buner, Pakistan.

Uzma said she was not the only woman forced into marrying a man from Buner. “There may be a lot of girls in Buner.

Buner people are mostly in Malaysia and they get girls from Malaysia. It is a dangerous area. You hear gunshots every day. Every man has two wives there. I don’t want this to happen with everyone,” she said.

The woman said she saw women who went to Pakistan after their arranged marriages also crying.

She thanked the government of India, particularly external affairs minister Sushma Swaraj for making her return possible.

“I am proud to be an Indian citizen. Sushma madam would call me every day to say we are fighting for you, you are our daughter, you are India’s daughter,” she said.
