    LAHORE, Pakistan — Page after page, the names stack up: 629 girls and women from across Pakistan who were sold as brides to Chinese men and taken to China. The list, obtained by The Associated Press, was compiled by Pakistani investigators determined to break up trafficking networks exploiting the country’s poor and vulnerable.

    The list gives the most concrete figure yet for the number of women caught up in the trafficking schemes since 2018.

    But since the time it was put together in June, investigators’ aggressive drive against the networks has largely ground to a halt. Officials with knowledge of the investigations say that is because of pressure from government officials fearful of hurting Pakistan’s lucrative ties to Beijing.

    The biggest case against traffickers has fallen apart. In October, a court in Faisalabad acquitted 31 Chinese nationals charged in connection with trafficking. Several of the women who had initially been interviewed by police refused to testify because they were either threatened or bribed into silence, according to a court official and a police investigator familiar with the case. The two spoke on condition of anonymity because they feared retribution for speaking out.

    At the same time, the government has sought to curtail investigations, putting “immense pressure” on officials from the Federal Investigation Agency pursuing trafficking networks, said Saleem Iqbal, a Christian activist who has helped parents rescue several young girls from China and prevented others from being sent there.

    “Some (FIA officials) were even transferred,” Iqbal said in an interview. “When we talk to Pakistani rulers, they don’t pay any attention.”

    Asked about the complaints, Pakistan’s interior and foreign ministries refused to comment.

    Several senior officials familiar with the events said investigations into trafficking have slowed, the investigators are frustrated and Pakistani media have been pushed to curb their reporting on trafficking. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they feared reprisals.

    “No one is doing anything to help these girls,” one of the officials said. “The whole racket is continuing and it is growing. Why? Because they know they can get away with it. The authorities won’t follow through, everyone is being pressured to not investigate. Trafficking is increasing now.”

    He said he was speaking out “because I have to live with myself. Where is our humanity?”

    China’s Foreign Ministry said it was unaware of the list.

    “The two governments of China and Pakistan support the formation of happy families between their people on a voluntary basis in keeping with laws and regulations, while at the same time having zero tolerance for and resolutely fighting against any person engaging in illegal cross-border marriage behavior,” the ministry said in a statement faxed Monday to AP’s Beijing bureau.

    There is shortage of women in China. Because of one Child policy, there had been substantial number of female foeticides. One good thing one must commend about Islam is almost zero incidence of abortion of female babies. There is nothing wrong in Pakistani women choosing a better and more secure future with Chinese men. May be those men might be the ideal lover, provider they always longed for...Sex is the most complicated and the most important thing we humans we do as a species...You will never understand the importance of sex unless you go at least 100 days of NoFap

    Yes..It is a vast subject...better if we make a dedicated thread towards NoFap or revert to private correspondence...But a dedicated thread on Member's section would be better..given that 95 percent of PDF users are men, and NoFap is the most serious also the toughest self improvement tool that there is
