“It is easy to go (to Pakistan) but tough to return,” she added with Foreign Minister Swaraj by her side at the Foreign Ministry.
Uzma, who had alleged that she was forced to marry a Pakistani man at gunpoint returned home on Thursday, via Wagah border.
She claimed that there are more women who have been duped into marrying men from Buner. She also said to have seen women who went to Pakistan after arranged marriages crying.
“There may be lots 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,” said Uzma who is in her 20s.
While speaking at a joint press conference with Sushma Swaraj, Uzma said that Pakistan is a well of death. â€œEven those who go there after an arranged marriage are crying.”
She also thanked the foreign minister for helping her come back to India.
Earlier, Swaraj in her tweet had welcomed her home. Â “Uzma – Welcome home India’s daughter. I am sorry for all that you have gone through.”
