The angry mob at the gurdwara is being led by Mohammad Hassan’s brother, who has claimed that Hassan has been beaten up mercilessly by the officials for legally marrying the girl. The family alleges that the Sikh girl, now known as Ayesha, has declined to convert back despite the pressure.

“I have been beaten by police authorities many times on orders of the minority minister and others. These Sikhs have been pressurizing us to send the girl back to them. But that will never happen because she is a Muslim now. She does not want to leave my brother or Islam. We will stand by her side and protect her,” said the brother of Hassan.
