Historic Hindu temple facing demolition in Pakistan

Islamabad | Agencies | 25 August 2014:: A historic Hindu temple in Pakistan`s garrison city of Rawalpindi is facing demolition to make way for barracks for soldiers, outraging the minority community in the country.
The pre-partition temple along with a Hindu graveyard and 53 single-room houses could be demolished as authorities are planning to construct barracks for soldiers.
Built in 1935, Maharishi Walmeck Sawami Jee Temple popularly known as Balaknash Temple is located at Gracy Lines of Chaklala, which falls in the municipal jurisdiction of military-managed Rawalpindi Cantonment Board.
The Hindu community was informed on August 12 that the temple and a Hindu graveyard will be demolished, following which a petition was filed against the move in a court, which stayed the planned demolition on Thursday.
The decision has caused anger among the Hindus as the temple is centre of religious activities of the small community in Rawalpindi, about 25 km from here.
A Hindu resident, Ashok Chand, told media that the temple and the houses were legally built before partition and there was no reason to demolish them.
“We refused to go to India and decided to stay in Jinnah`s Pakistan, now our homes and sacred temple are being bulldozed. Are not we Pakistanis or at least humans?” he said.
The local Hindus living there are being offered alternative accommodation but it is not yet clear whether a new temple will be built for them.
About 60 Hindu families live in Rawalpindi which had a thriving Hindu population before the partition.
The decision for demolishing the temple along with other 53 single room small houses to construct the barracks by the FWO has sent shock waves across the Hindu community. An administrative branch of the Pakistan Army, active duty officers, civilian scientists and engineers serve in the FWO.

According to reports, the demolition notices were issued on July 18 but the orders were served on August 12. What had further shocked the community is the demolition of graveyard of Hindus situated at a distance of one kilometre from the temple. Luxurious bungalows are likely to come up on the 6.5 kanals of land.
When contacted, an FWO officer refused to comment on the matter. During a visit to the site, this correspondent saw construction of washrooms for labourers was under way. The bungalows meant for Army officers were also under construction less than a hundred yards away.
Anti-Hindu sentiments run high in Rawalpindi. Recently, unidentified men had attacked the people assembled at a ceremony held in the temple to mark ‘Janamashtami’. Luckily, no one was hurt seriously. Incidentally, the temple was attacked in 1992 following demolition of the Babri mosque in India. Later, the Pakistan government had reconstructed the temple. Since then, 50 Hindu families were living in the temple neighborhood.
“We are living in Pakistan from even before the Partition took place. But life isn’t smooth as it was before 1992,” Ranish Das said, adding that the authorities were forcing the families to shift to another place at the earliest. Another local, Javed Bhatti, confirmed the same. “Authorities of FWO have promised to build flats for us. They want us to hand our land to them. This is unacceptable to us,” Javed said. “Despite the fact that we refused to live in India and stayed here in Jinnah’s Pakistan, authorities want to demolish the temple… Is this fair?” Asfandyar Bhindara, a member of Lower House of Parliament, has moved a petition in a local court of Rawalpindi to stop the demolition. The court issued a stay order in this regard.
Cases of kidnappings and forced conversions are nothing new in Pakistan. As many as 400 Hindu families from Pakistan have migrated to India since 2011, while those left behind are said to have forcibly converted to Islam for escaping the wrath of extremists.
Hindus comprised nearly 15 per cent of the country’s population in 1947. Now, they are a mere two per cent. Of the 428 temples in the country, only 26 are functioning, said Jagmohan Kumar Arora, the community head in Rawalpindi. To make matters worse for the minorities, the cremation ground in Rawalpindi, used by Hindus and Sikhs was demolished on July 19, 2010.

Saharanpur riots: Main accused Moharram Ali arrested
A lone Sikh chasing hundreds of Muslim Rioters in Saharanpur Riot
IANS | Lucknow | July 31, 2014:: The main accused for instigating clashes in Saharanpur in Uttar Pradesh which left three people killed and dozens injured has been arrested along with six of his accomplices, police said on Thursday.
Moharram Ali allegedly incited a mob to pelt stones and fire at the Sikhs and had opened fire at Sahastra Pal, a constable who is battling for his life in a city hospital.
Mohd Danish, Mohd Irshad, Mohd Abid, Mohd Shahid and Haji Mohammed Irfan have also been arrested for inciting and abetting violence. Violent clashes had erupted between the Sikha and Muslims in Saharanpur last week.
Police said the main accused was behind the gherao at the Qutubsher police station when the two sides were talking out the matter related to a land dispute, in the presence of senior police officials.
The mob gathered outside the police station had gone on a rampage, firing at people, burning shops and vehicles and pelting stones.
Moharram Ali alias Pappu has confessed to inciting the mob, an official told IANS.
Senior Superintendent of Police Rajesh Pandey confirmed the arrest and said raids were being conducted at various places to arrest others guilty of inciting the clashes.
“We have identified the culprits behind the mindless violence through CCTV camera footage and soon they will be brought to justice,” the official told IANS.
Gangster Act and the National Security Act (NSA) would be slapped on the people behind the violence, a district official said.
Meanwhile, a curfew continues to be in place but has been relaxed in select areas for five hours.
These places include Janakpuri, Sadar bazaar, Kotwali Nagar and Qutub Sher, Inspector General Amrendra Senger said.
A dispute over a piece of land followed by a court order had triggered off violent clashes in the city. Para-military forces were called in to bring back peace and contain violence.
UP cops say Saharanpur riots were well-planned
The Gurudwara construction site on the disputed land over which Muslims attacked Sikh and Hindus of Saharanpur.
Piyush Srivastava | India Today | Saharanpur July 30, 2014 :: Certain aspects of the Saharanpur clashes indicate meticulous planning by the rioters who had a singular agenda of dividing the Sikhs and Muslims in the western Uttar Pradesh district.
IG, Meerut Zone, Alok Sharma confirmed that the clashes were “pre-planned”. “The riot was preplanned. The way the firing was done and shops were burnt indicate many possibilities…We are investigating all angles,” he said.
The role of the civil and police administration is also under the scanner as the armed rioters had a free hand for nine hours till 4 pm on Saturday before the lathi-wielding policemen dispersed the mob.
ADG, Telecom, Devendra Singh Chauhan admitted that the local administration could have prevented the riots if decisions were taken promptly. “The district magistrate and the senior superintendent of police are expected to take prompt decisions in such situation.
The violence could have been averted if action was initiated at the proper time,” Chauhan, who has been sent to Saharanpur as special observer, said.
The ADG said the rioters have been identified and police teams have been constituted to arrest them. The culprits will be booked under the stringent National Security Act, Chauhan added.
The rioters had a well-chalked plan as they first set ablaze the firebrigade office and fire tenders, crippling the department from carrying out any relief work. They then carried out looting and arson at the Ambala Road.
“Some rioters were lighting Molotov cocktails and throwing them inside the shops. Despite repeated requests to impose curfew in the city, the police kept saying till 4 pm that they didn’t receive any order to stop the people from gathering.
Over 4,000 people had assembled at Ambala Road by 10 am. They were increasingly getting violent,” cloth trader Harvinder Singh, whose shop was torched, claimed. Interestingly, the disputed plot was never a major issue for the two communities until recently. The Sikhs claimed the Muslims had claimed their rights over the plot after they bought it four years ago. Though the Muslims claimed that the plot was a Waqf property, they could not prove the same in a minority commission.
Later, they had withdrawn their claim over the plot and it was finally handed over to the Sikhs. Since then, it was a non-issue for the two communities. The construction work was started there a year ago without any opposition from the other side, the Sikh community claimed. But all of a sudden, some people objected to the construction by Sri Guru Singh Sabha and violence erupted on Saturday.
Locals also claimed that some motorcycle-borne masked men were indiscriminately firing at whosoever standing on their way, suggesting that they wanted to spread terror among the people for stopping construction at the plot.
“We saw two masked men on a motorcycle who were firing at the passers-by in Ghantaghar area,” Sanjeev Bhandari, whose shop was set on fire at Ambala Road, said. Prior to the clashes on Saturday, Saharanpur had last witnessed communal violence in December 1992 when the Babri Masjid was demolished in Ayodhya.

Riot rocks UP again: 3 killed, several injured in Saharanpur clashes; shoot-at-sight orders against rioters.
S. Raju | Hindustan Times | Meerut, | July 26, 2014:: Communal violence left Uttar Pradesh bloodied again with three killed (Five killed as reported by Jagran Website: HE Editor) and several injured in a clash between Sikhs and Muslims in Saharanpur on Saturday. Curfew was clamped and shoot-at-sight orders given against rioters.
The two groups fought pitched battles and burnt several vehicles, as home minister Rajnath Singh spoke to chief minister Akhilesh Yadav who assured him that the situation would be contained soon.
The communities, who clashed over construction on a disputed plot, fought with firearms, swords and stones and torched shops and vehicles.
One of the deceased, Sanjeev Kochar, died of bullet injuries. The second victim was identified only as Arif while there was no confirmation of the third’s identity. A constable and a home guard sustained serious injuries as the police stepped in to control the rampage.
They are both in critical condition.
The situation continued to be tense till late Saturday, as heavy security was deployed by the state government, officials said.
Over a dozen policemen were also injured in the violence. Curfew continues in a few areas under six police stations.
Police have arrested over a dozen people for inciting violence over a land dispute and sources in the home department said the tense situation was now under control.

Eight companies of the Provincial Armed Constabulary (PAC), six of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) and two companies of Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) were deployed in the violence-hit areas.
Akhilesh Yadav has sought a detailed report on the clashes from the director general of police (DGP) AL Banerjee and chief secretary Alok Ranjan.
A team of home department and senior police officials also briefed the chief minister on the day’s developments.
Punjab chief minister Parkash Singh Badal also spoke to Akhilesh Yadav and expressed concern over the incidents that unfolded in Saharanpur during the day.
The rampage reportedly continued for several hours. “They broke shutters, torched shops and vehicles and fearlessly roamed around the area for hours,” said Amanpreet Singh, a member of the Guru Singh Sabha. The sabha claims the plot belongs to the gurdwara near which it is located while the Muslims call it a holy spot for the community. The matter is in court.
The fight allegedly began after the Sikhs started construction on the plot early Friday, and it turned ugly in no time, spreading to the old city areas.
The sabha officials claimed they had the court’s permission to do construction.
“We have the court order but whenever we approached the police for protection for the construction, they never paid heed to our request,” Amanpreet Singh said.
Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress leaders condemned the violence and slammed the state government for its failure to control the law and order situation in the state.
The BJP’s state spokesman Vijay Bahadur Pathak said it was most unfortunate that while the state government did not miss any opportunity to blame his party for any communal tension, the government’s failure to check small incidents was at the root of all troubles in the state.

Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi in a statement in New Delhi expressed his sadness at the communal clashes in Saharanpur.
“I am deeply saddened to hear of the clashes in Saharanpur,” Gandhi said.

Amarnath yatra crosses 3-lakh mark.
PTI | Shri Nagar | 21 July 2014:: The number of yatris paying obeisance at the 3,880-metre high holy cave shrine of Shri Amarnath in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday crossed the three-lakh mark.
Nearly 10,000 pilgrims performed darshan of the naturally-formed ice lingam at the holy cave till 5.00 p.m. on Monday, an official of the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB) said.
He said this included 377 persons who performed the yatra by helicopter from Baltal and Pahalgam helipads.
More than 2.93 lakh pilgrims had paid obeisance at the holy cave shrine since the commencement of annual pilgrimage from Baltal route on June 28, and from traditional Pahalgam route on July 2.
The number of pilgrims who died during the pilgrimage this year is 33, including one Sadhu, the official said.
Although the number of pilgrim deaths is much lower this year than 120 recorded in 2012, it has risen sharply from the 14 deaths that occurred during the last year’s yatra, he said.
[ As per data available from the Shri Amarnathji Shrine Board website, the total pilgrimage has been recorded as 3, 11, 725 as on 22 July 2014. Our data base shows a highest record of 6.36 lakh pilgrims took part in the Yatra in 2011 and came down to 3.65 lakh in the last year. The year wise pilgrims took part in the yatra as recorded: 2002 – 1.10 lakh; 2003 – 1.70 lakh; 2004 – 4.10 lakh; 2005 – 3.88 lakh; 2006 – 3.47 lakh; 2007 – 2.96 lakh; 2008 – 5.33 lakh; 2009 – 3.81 lakh; 2010 – 4.55 lakh and 6.21 lakh in 2012 ~ Ed. HE ].
Inputs suggest threat of terror attacks on Amarnath yatra
PTI | New Delhi | 22 July 2014:: There are intelligence inputs which suggest threat of terrorist attacks on Amarnath pilgrims, Lok Sabha was informed today.
Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said there are intelligence inputs about the plan of terrorists to target Amarnath yatra and the same has been shared with security agencies at the Centre and state levels.
Rijiju said since the beginning of the yatra this year, the reports of some incidents of stone pelting on yatra vehicles from Jammu and Kashmir’s Ganderbal district have been received.
In these incidents, injury to one pilgrim and damage to the windowpanes of three vehicles have been reported, he said adding the state government has been taking adequate measures to provide security to the Amarnath pilgrims.
[Jihadi threats to Bharat are nothing new. Time and gain they are humiliating terrorizing the majority populace in India. Now, Narendra Modi government warns of terror attack threat on Amarnath pilgrims. But, has the Govt. its right will force to crush all terrorists camps in J&K and in POK right now?
Modi must wage a right war against the Islamic Terrorism that has been trying to destroy the Hindu majority in India, cutting off Kashmir from Bharat and silently invading this country for a Muslim majority. A single stone pelting to Amarnath pilgrims or any attack on them should be the turning point of ‘Terror Free Kashmir’ and then whole of India. Enough is Enough. Pak generated and ISI operated terror in J&K is growing ceaselessly. Modi Govt. must not find any excuse like their predecessor Congress.
The spell of big talks must be reinforced into practical initiative to teach a hard lesson to any obstinate and ill motivated neighbour for the protection of countrymen, keeping aside all bogus drama or hobnobbing. ~ Ed. HE].

Blatal attack on Amarnath Yatra Pilgrims condemned by Hindus through Jammu ‘Bandh’ (shut down) on Saturday and protests of VHP, Bajrang Dal, Shiva Sena and other Hindu outfits seen in many places.
Hindu Existence Media Bureau | Jammu | 19 July 2014:: Hindus in Jammu, Punjub, Haryana and Delhi protested vehemently against the communal attack upon the Hindu-Sikh pilgrims of yearly Shri Amarnath Yatra at Baltal route on Friday. The winter capital Jammu Kashmir today responded a largely to the ‘bandh’ called by Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), Bajrangdal, Shiva Sena and Panthers Party in view of Muslim menace upon the Amarnath Yatra pilgrims and the communal tension erupted in Baltal Base of Sri Amarnath Yatra, in which scores of Hindu pilgrims including Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel got injured and over 10 langars/bhandaras and more than 100 tents were put ablaze.
Jammu and adjacent places observed an almost shut down on VHP and other Hindu Organization’s call on Saturday to convey a solidarity to the Hindu pilgrims went under abrupt attack of the Muslim ponnywallas and fanatical elements.
Shops, business establishments, local workshops remained closed while scanty of the commercial vehicles were seen on the roads.
Government offices, private offices and educational institutions witnessed a very thin attendance due to the strikes.
The commuters in urgency and the Vaishno Devi Pilgrims in katra faced severe problems due to non availability of usual transportation including the long rout buses and vehicles.
Activists of VHP, Bajrangdal and other Hindu outfits staged strong protests in various places in Jammu and out-skirts against the alleged thrashing of some members maintaining langar/bhandara (free community kitchen for pilgrims) and ill behaving with the female pilgrims at Baltal by the rowdy ponnywallas and Muslims fanatics on Friday. It was told that the enraged Muslims scuffled with Hindu Langar owners and raised slogans for Free Kashmir and condemned attack on Gaza strips by Israel in recent.
The Muslim attackers blamed the CRPF for putting fire on Tents, but the blast of gas cylinders in the langers were the source of unchecked fire in the nearby tents.
The Hindu Sadhus from various Akhadas and female pilgrims staying in different Dharamshala and resting places took the roads in Jammu on Saturday in protest against the routine disturbance by Muslim elements in the period of yearly Amarnath Yatra.
The Bajrang Dal activists jammed different roads and put fires in tyres . Hundreds of activists were arrested by J&K Police and set free afterwards.
In Fatehgarh Sahib Shiva Sena activists marched on road in from Red light chowk to Mandi Govindgarh. They burnt effigy of J&K Govt. in protest.
It has been reported by Sri Rakesh Gurkha, Founder, IDKPYF (Internally Displaced Kashmiri Pandits Youth Federation) that a huge repercussion has been surfaced in Punjab, Haryana, Delhi and Jammu Region in protest of attack upon Amarnath Pilgrims at Baltal, yesterday. Noida Express Way were blocked for hours last evening. Total Bandh in Jammu is being observed today. At about 11 am today a big protest was lashed in Jantar Mantar (New Delhi) ) under the leadership of VHP and Bajrangdal to register Hindu Protest against Islamic menace in Kashmir valley, particularly against the Amarnath pilgrims in a routine fashion. Sickular (secular) Media is censoring the Hindu Protest undermining the Hindu sentiments. However the Amarnath Yatra has been restarted from Baltal base again on Saturday.
Three developments reported from the valley so far. 1. Communalising the matter in a high pitch, All Party Hurriyaat Conference leader Sayeed Ali Geelani claimed that the CRFP burnt 400 tents to spoil Muslim business. 2. The communal ponnywallas and tent owners have given a threat to wind up their business in a very incooperative way to stop the rest of Amarnath Yatra this year. 3. Govt facilities and securities are found inadequate in some places in Baltal route after the Yatra disorder on Friday.

Hyderabad Riot after miscreant burnt Holy Sikh Flag. 3 died at police firing, 30 injured.
Hindu youth stabbed by suspected Muslims in unprovoked attack in curfew bound Hyderabad after three days continuing riots between Hindu-Sikhs in one side and Muslims in the opponent.
HE Bureau | Agencies | Hyderabad | May 18, 2014::
The recent post riot situation in Hyderabad has worsened again after a Hindu young man being stabbed by some skull capped Urdu speaking people and obviously from the generated tension out of seventh Mecca masjid blast anniversary.
Two private employees, who went to have tea, were stabbed by miscreants at Dobhighat, Saidabad, in the wee hours of Saturday. Police suspect that it could be a fall out of the recent communal tension in the Old City. Saidabad police said that P Bhanu Prakash Reddy, 25, has a part-time job with Matrix, a logistics company. Bhanu and his friend Hari Krishna, were deputed to work at Heritage Fresh, Santosh Nagar on Friday. As the Matrix agency serves super markets in the city and helps them stock goods, its employees work between 10 pm and 5 am. On Friday, the agency asked Bhanu and Hari to work at Heritage. At 3 am, they took a tea break.”While they were walking near Dobhighat, a few persons asked them something in Urdu. As the victims knew only Telugu, they asked them to speak in Telugu. Due to the language problem, the two left the place and went towards Santoshnagar. After 15 minutes, while returning to the supermarket, they again came across the group which stabbed Bhanu,” Saidabad inspector A Srinivasulu said.According to police, the victims informed ‘100’ and ‘108’ ambulance and Bhanu was rushed to OGH, where he is undergoing treatment. Police said that they were probing the case. The stabbing injury on Bhanu seems to be critical.Meanwhile, in Old City flag march was done by security personnel keeping in view the seventh Mecca masjid blast anniversary. RAF, city police did it in Charminar, Mogulpura, Shalibanda and other surrounding areas.
A pall of gloom coupled with an uneasy calm prevailed in the violence-hit areas of Arsh Mahal in Kishanbagh here on Thursday, a day after violent communal clashes between two communities rocked the locality, allegedly over burning of a religious flag of Sikhs (Nishan Sahib) by suspected Muslim perpetrators. Clash erupted in Kishanbagh area of Hyderabad’s old City after miscreants burnt a Nishan Sahib (Sikh religious flag) in the early hours of Wednesday May 14 ,2014.
In the wee hours of morning Sikh youths armed with swords started assembling at the spot even as deployed police officers remained perplexed.
After that the armed Sikhs attacked Muslim houses in Sikh Chowni and set ablaze properties. Muslims from neighbouring areas started to assemble after news of attacks started to spread which led to stone pelting between both communities.
Seeing the situation going more violent and out of control, police firing was necessary to control the situation but he claimed that orders were given to fire in the air. A police official in charge told reporters, “Around 6.30 am, a group assembled and attacked people. As both groups, armed with swords clashed, we ordered BSF to fire in the air. Those who were at some height from the ground level were hit. Three people have died in the firing. The injured are stable, firing in the air was necessary to bring the situation under control.”
As a matter of fact the communal tension was sparked widely in and around old city of Hyderabad, when the Hindus of Hyderabad started retaliation after being irritated after hearing the news of humiliation of Sikh brothers mostly located at Kishanbagh and sikh Chowni areas. All on a sudden the Muslim rioters were put under a severe pressure created by the joint Hindu-Sikh anti Mujaheddin action force.
For the fourth consecutive day, curfew is in force under the Rajendranagar police station limits even as the police reportedly took into custody at least 30 persons in connection with the violence. Five cases were registered. Meanwhile, governor ESL Narasimhan ordered a magisterial enquiry into the police firing that left three persons dead.
Out of these 30 persons, 23 are from Sikh friends so far. The accused who were arrested on Thursday are: Dayal Singh (54), Nanak Singh (41), Jaswanth Singh (64), Charan Singh (41), Maninder Singh (17), Havinder Singh (18), Hari Dayal Singh (24), Tharanjith Singh (21), Sukbinder Singh (23), Sathpal Singh (25), Jithender Singh (25), Manpreeth Singh (27), Govind Singh (16), Ranjith Singh (14), Gurmith Singh (15), Devender Singh (28), Maninder Singh (15), Rajbeer Singh (28), Ranjith Singh (28), Narendra Singh, Bachan Singh (50), Babun Singh (32) and Haribajan Singh (16). All are residents of Sikh Chavni. They have been remanded to judicial custody.
Though the curfew was declared to be in force till 10 a.m. on Saturday, the same has been extended upto Sunday. For three hours in the morning it was lifted for the help of public utilities. Situation is not so peaceful and may be under control, if the police does not chase the miscreants in a though hand. However, security has further been tightened in and around the old city upto next Friday.
On the other hand, Punjab deputy chief minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Thursday condemned the burning of a religious flag in a Gurdwara premises in Kishanbagh area in Hyderabad on Wednesday and urged the Andhra Pradesh government to take stern action against the accused.
The Shiromani Akali Dal president, in a statement, said he had requested Delhi Sikh Gurdwara managing committee president Manjit Singh GK to lead a delegation to the Gurdwara site in Hyderabad immediately to conduct an investigation into the shocking incident.
He said the DSGMC president would also interact with the Sikh community during his visit to Hyderabad and assure them that the SAD would not only stand by them but also work to punish the perpetrators of the act.
The SAD president also requested the AP government to take strong and decisive action in the case besides taking steps to safeguard all Gurdwara premises in the state.
He requested the AP government to ensure the safety of the life and property of the Sikhs living there.

The victim, Paramjit Singh, 35, was murdered in broad day light on Thursday when he was sitting at his shop. Another person, who came to his aid and tried to nab one of the assailants, was also killed.
The incident has sent shock waves amongst the minority Sikh community in the area.
This is the second murder of a member of the minority community in less than two months, and many victims has fallen prey to the bullets in the recent pasts.
Earlier, two Sikhs were abducted at gun point from Dera Ismail Khan and there is no news about their whereabouts.
Sikhs traders are living in fear because they are being asked to pay jaziya (a tax paid by minority religious group), and those who refuse, are killed.
The area is infested with the gun-toting fundamentalists, including Taliban who roam around in the area freely. There are more than 25000 Sikhs living in the area, and recently had been facing violence, abduction and ransom from the terrorists groups.
Swaran Singh, a member of the provincial assembly and former President of the Pakistan Sikh Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee, informed that he himself went to the place and brought the body back at Peshawar.
He said North West Frontier Province chief Minister Parvez Khattak has taken a personal interest in the killing of the Sikh gentleman and has assured security to the minority community and safety of their properties.
According to eye witnesses the killers escaped on foot after committing the crime. No group claimed responsibility for the killing.

HINDU AMERICAN FOUNDATION PRESENTS:
|Watch HAF’s Newest Documentary
The Untold Story of Pakistani Hindu Refugees
|May 14, 2013
“Hindus were not only restricted from openly practicing their religion in his neighborhood, but were also attacked for publicly celebrating their festivals.” – HAF’s Victims of History Report on Hindus of Pakistan
To believe that one’s faith cannot be openly practiced is unthinkable. However, for many Pakistani Hindus, the slightest acknowledgement of their Hindu faith can endanger their lives.
“There is fear 24 hours a day…Hindus see themselves as helpless,” Chetan Ram states. Young girls are ripped from the arms of their mothers, married off to strangers, and forcibly converted to Islam; never to see their families again.
Families live in utter poverty. Even if they are employed; they are at the mercy of the jagirdars, or landlords. The Muslim jagirdars pay Hindu workers at their own accord, leaving many of the already impoverished Hindus unpaid.
In order to escape the dire fate they face in Pakistan, many flee to India for safety.
In January of 2013, a team from the Hindu American Foundation, traveled to Jodhpur, Rajasthan. Over five days, the team visited three Pakistani Hindu refugee camps, providing medical aid to over 400 refugees. During their time there, the team listened to one heartbreaking story after another. Here is just one story:
Amar Lal migrated to India in April 2009 from Bahawalpur after his unmarried sister-in-law was kidnapped and the family never heard from her again. He also noted that he knew of four to five additional Hindu girls that had been kidnapped in Bahawalpur. – HAF’s Victims of History Report
Despite fleeing from religious persecution, these individuals are still not formally recognized as refugees by the Indian Government or the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
Watch their harrowing story by clicking here.
For more in depth coverage of the situation, read the full report written by HAF’s Senior Human Rights Fellow, Samir Kalra, Esq.: “Victims of History: The Untold Story of Pakistani Hindu Refugees in India”. HAF premiered the documentary and presented the report findings at a Congressional Hearing held on April 25, 2013, in Washington D.C.

Fight Pakistan fire with fire, Indian Army chief orders commanders on LoC.
Rajat Pandit | TNN | Jan 15, 2013 | New Delhi :: India on Monday demonstrated its renewed resolve to fight fire with fire along the volatile Line of Control, directing all its battalion commanders on the fiercely-contested boundary to retaliate with all their might if the Pakistani Army provokes them by violating the ceasefire or pushing militants into J&K.
“I expect all my commanders on the LoC to be aggressive and offensive in face of provocation and fire…No passivity is expected from them. Their response has to be measured and for effect,” said a tough-talking General Bikram Singh, a day ahead of Army Day celebrations.
The fact that the Army chief issued an unequivocal warning to Pakistan to cease and desist from misadventures along the border is a confirmation there is going to be no immediate de-escalation of tension, especially as a defiant Pakistan refused to own up to the beheading of an Indian soldier and mutilation of another’s body by its elite SSG commandos on January 8.
Speaking around the same time that Pakistan brushed aside India’s charges at the brigadier-level flag meeting at the Chakkan-Da-Bagh crossing point in Poonch district, Gen Singh accused Islamabad of resorting to “outright lies”.
Pakistani Army’s cross-border raid on January 8 was a “premeditated and pre-planned” operation that would have needed at least 10 days of preparation and reconnaissance, he said. The Indian jawan’s beheading was a “gruesome, most unpardonable act” that went against the “basic ethics” of soldering and tenets of the Geneva Convention, he added. >>Read details in TOI.
Indian Army Chief warns Pakistan, says will choose the time and place to retaliate.
New Delhi | Jan 15, 2013 :: Indian Army Chief General Bikram Singh hit out strongly at Pakistan over the killing of two Indian soldiers and continuous ceasefire violation. He warned Pakistan that the Indian Army will retaliate to Pakistan’s attack. “I have given very categorical directions to the Northern Command. When we are provoked we shall respond immediately. I expect my commanders to be aggressive in the face of firing. We will retaliate to Pakistan’s attack at a place and time of our choosing,” General Bikram Singh said.
Talking tough against Pakistan, General Bikram Singh rejected Pakistan’s claims of an Indian operation at the Line of Control killing one soldier. “No operation was carried out by the Indian Army on January 6 as claimed by Pakistan,” General Bikram Singh said.
He called the killing of two Indian soldiers by Pakistan ‘gruesome’ and ‘unpardonable’ and said beheading the soldier was unacceptable. “This incident has had strategic nuances, beheading our soldiers is not acceptable. The act was against ethics and principles of rules of engagement,” General Singh said. He added that India will register a strong protest at the flag meet of the two countries.
General Bikram Singh also said that Pakistan Army’s attack in Mendhar was pre-planned.
The long awaited flag meeting between Indian and Pakistani commanders in the Poonch sector will take place on Monday afternoon. India had requested for the Brigadier-level flag meet in an attempt to ease the tension at the India-Pakistan border. >>Read details in IBN Live.

Enough is enough. Finish the Fifth Column from our Motherland right now.
~ Upananda Brahmachari.
Mr. Monmohan Singh is not Lal Bahadur Shastri. And does not Mr Sushil Kumar Shinde possess that much courage of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. If Pakistan changes its proxy war against Hindusthan in a real one, Mrs. Antonia Sonia Maino may be seen in that mysterious role through which spirit of Lady Mountbatten spoiled Nehru as a meek before the retreating Pakistan Force in 1965, completely disgracing our unbeatable Indian Army, then advanced upto Barkee post around Lahore. This is the real situation to be repeated in case of our two veteran and highly learned President and Prime Minister of India. Hence, today’s flag meeting at at Poonch between the commanders of India and Pakistan regarding repeated cease fire violation and the brutal decapitation of two Indian Jawans by Pakistani beasts, will give us no fruit at all. The Grief tormented Rajputana Rifles Jawans will take food one day after their protest phase of five day long starvation or the families of Lance Naik Hemraj or Lance Naik Sudhakar Singh shall return to their normal life after ending their sitting protest on fasting. But what will happen to the pro active Pak elements engaged to destroy the entity and integrity of India? Or what should be our treatment towards the Hurriyat or MIM elements who are discharging their subversive and seditious role of Fifth Column to destroy India from within?
It is heard that in a bid to de-escalate tension along the Line of Control (LoC), India and Pakistan will hold a brigade commander-level flag meeting in Poonch sector on Monday (14-01-2013) during which the recent intrusions and the brutal killing of two jawans by Pakistani soldiers will figure.
“Brigade Commanders’ flag meeting is being held tomorrow at Chakan-Da-Bagh LoC point in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir at noon,” public relation officer (PRO), defence, Col R K Palta said.
Pakistan agreed to hold the flag meeting in a communication through a hotline in the sector, he said, adding, “We had sought the flag meeting of the brigade commanders of the two sides.”
The Indian Army had sent a hotline message to the Pakistan Army on January 11 and asked for a flag meeting to discuss the issue of brutal killing of two jawans by Pakistani troops, reportedly belonging to 29 Baloch Regiment, and increasing incidents of firing and ceasefire violations in the Poonch sector.
But, this type flag meeting is not an exception but may be considered as routine one. A Brigade Commanders’ meeting was held at Chakan-Da-Bagh LoC point on June 23 following the killing of two Indian soldiers and injuries to four other jawans in ceasefire violations by Pakistani troops, besides closure of the cross- LoC trade and travel via Chakan-Da-Bagh.
The two jawans were killed and the four others were injured in the firing by Pakistan troops between June 11 to June 16 in the Poonch sector. But, they were not the relatives of any higher officials or bureaucrats. Then those were considered as trifling loss or casualties.
Records say that if there were 61 such violations in 2011, as many as 120 have been recorded in the last one year. Reports tells us 7 times cease fire-violation by Pakistan within last 48 hours and we are going to talk with some blood thirsty cannibals, chanting well the norms of Geneva conventions and etc.
Who doesn’t know that Pakistan is our enemy. Those who locked heads are speaking about ‘Aman Ki Tamsha’, Pak-India Cricket-Hockey series or cultural exchange and others are nothing but the traitors of the Nation.
Indian Home Minister Mr. Sushilkumar Shinde is saying that Pakistan is helping terrorists to enter our territory. The Indian Defense Minister Mr. A K Antony is saying that ceasefire violations in Jammu and Kashmir are a cause of serious concern. But the assault upon the Indian Soldiers are coming as a routine phenomenon. Brave-heart soldiers are not permitted to be proactive in the front-line for the lack political courage of corrupted Indian politicians. And though these nefarious nods, the Fifth Column in Indian soil are sprouting unbelievably without any check and balance.
It is told that the 26/11 Master Mind Hafiz Sayeed were visiting the Terrorist Training Camps in POK and stationed near Mendhar border of Poonch Sector at the time of brutal killing of two Rajputana Rifles Jawans by Balooch Regiment of Pakistan Army. Concrete evidences have been surfaced that separatist Hurriyat Leaders of J&K are conducting strategic meeting with the Army and ISI officials of Pakistan to continue Jihad warfare in India. But, Pakistan is denying all these and we are waiting for another series of intrusion or further pack of mutilated body of Indian soldiers or civilians with clotted blood and without heads or limbs.
Aggressive Offence is the only answer in this situation for making a meaningful defense. Yes, this is the time to issue a clear declaration of revenge. This is the time to crush down the most dangerous Fifth Columnists like Yaseen Malik, Geelani or Akbaruddin. And this can be materialized only upon a strong resolution and steel body and mind. Oh, my brave-heart soldiers of Rajputana Rifles and the glorified relatives of National Heroes like Veer Sudhakar or Veer Hemraj, wipe out the tears each others, take food again but must take the vow to finish all the Fifth Column perpetrators and spies from our soil, who are endangering our safety and security in every foot step.
The cross border enemies and their Army are fortifying the Fifth Column in India and their terrorist fronts by all possible menace of arms, finance, logistics and strategies to carry on a fanatic Jihad in India. Then, when our Army can’t drive in a Dhrama Yudh to save the prestige and mighty presence of Bharat Mata at present and future.
Unless we complete the cleansing the Fifth Column from Bharat (India), they will push us in the mouth of the sharks and help our enemies in many ways. Enough is enough. Finish the Fifth Columns right now.
Vande Mataram. Bharat Mata Ki Jai. Jai Hind.

Retaliation of Kasab Hanging?
Jihadi Pakistani troopers cross into Indian territory, brutally slit throats of two Hindu Jawans of Rajputana Rifles and mutilate after ambush in Poonch.
Pak troops kill two jawans, behead, mutilate one of them
By Rajat Pandit & Josy Joseph, TNN | Wednesday, Jan 9, 2013.
NEW DELHI: An Indian soldier was beheaded and another killed (mutilated) by Pakistani troops after they crossed over into Indian territory in the Mendhar sector of Jammu & Kashmir on Tuesday, in a grim reminder of the brutality perpetrated during the 1999 Kargil conflict which can make peace making even more difficult.
The “border action team” of the Pakistani Army took advantage of the thick fog in the thickly-forested mountainous region to sneak 500 to 600 metres across the Line of Control (loC) before they were driven back after a fierce gun-battle and even close-quarter combat with Indian troops that went on for over 30 minutes shortly before noon on Tuesday.
The incursion and ceasefire violation seemed to be a diversionary manoeuvre to push infiltrators into J&K, as has been the earlier practice of Pakistani Army. However, it met with adequate fire-power from the Indian troops who, tipped off by the Intelligence Bureau, were fully alert to thwart any nefarious design.
After the gun battle, the bodies of Lance-Naiks Hemraj and Sudhakar Singh, part of an “area domination patrol” of the 13 Rajputana Rifles, were found. One of them was badly “mutilated”. Although the Army did not give more details of the barbarism, sources said the retreating Pakistani soldiers had chopped off the “head” of one of the Indian soldiers and taken it back with them.
An outraged Indian Army dubbed the crime “yet another grave provocation” by the Pakistan Army, and said that it would be “taken up sternly through official channels”. Given the gravity of the situation, PM Manmohan Singh, who was in Kochi in the afternoon, was briefed over the phone.
“We condemn the provocative action. The government will take up the incident with the Pakistan government. We expect Islamabad to honour the ceasefire agreement (which came into force in November 2003) strictly,” said the defence ministry.
Predictably, the Pakistan military denied its troops had crossed over into India or indulged in a ceasefire violation on Tuesday. “It looks like Indian propaganda to divert world attention from the raid conducted by Indian troops on one of our posts on Sunday, in which one of our soldiers was killed,” it said.
But the decapitation of the Indian soldier on Tuesday evoked memories of the barbaric way in which during the 1999 Kargil conflict Captain Saurabh Kalia was tortured by his Pakistani captors who later handed over his badly mutilated body to India. Kalia’s father is still fighting to get Pakistan to punish the soldiers who were responsible for his son’s brutal torture.
J&K: 2 Hindu soldiers beheaded, body of one mutilated by Jihadi Pak troops…
(there are more than 70 ceasefire violation along the Actual Line on Control alone and 30 ceasefire violation at International Border between Indian and Pakistan last year…… )
The defeat in Kargil did not chasten the Pakistani security establishment into mending its ways and stop violating the Geneva Convention which lays down how captured soldiers should be treated. In February, 2000, infamous Pakistani terrorist and al-Qaida member Ilyas Kashmirihad led a raid on the Indian Army’s “Ashok Listening Post” in the Nowshera sector to kill seven Indian soldiers.
Even then, Kashmiri had taken back to Pakistan the head of a 24-year-old Indian jawan, Bhausaheb Maruti Talekar of the 17 Maratha Light Infantry, as a trophy to brandish. He is believed to have been honoured by General Pervez Musharraf himself at a ceremony later.
On Tuesday, the defence ministry said the director-general of military operations (DGMO), Lt-General Vinod Bhatia, had already taken up the issue “directly” with his Pakistani counterpart. With the PM landing back in New Delhi later on Tuesday, the ministry of external affairs is likely to summon a top Pakistani official on Wednesday to lodge a strong protest over the matter.
Sources said Army chief General Bikram Singh also briefed national security advisor Shivshankar Menon on the “significant escalation” in ceasefire violations by the Pakistan Army in recent days. “Pakistan Army is regularly giving covering fire to help terrorists infiltrate into J&K, especially in the Rajouri, Uri and Keran sectors. If there were 61 such violations in 2011, as many as 120 have been recorded in the last one year,” said an official.
India has already denied Pakistan’s earlier allegation on Sunday, holding that it was actually Pakistani soldiers who opened “unprovoked heavy machinegun and mortar fire on Indian post in the Uri sector”. Indian troops had just responded to it “in a calibrated manner”. The external affairs ministry also asked Pakistan to ensure that the “sanctity of the LoC is maintained”.

Man with 9/11 tattoo kills six in US Gurdwara
At least seven killed in shooting at Wisconsin Sikh temple ~ gurudwara.
Sikh brothers protest on Gurudwara Killing in US.
WISCONSIN, US | Monday, August 6, 2012 – A shooting during Sunday services at a Sikh temple yesterday left at least seven people dead, including a gunman, and at least three critically wounded. Police said they believed only one gunman was involved.
A white man with a 9/11 tattoo, that’s how the coldblooded killer who shot dead six persons at a Gurudwara in the Milwaukee suburb of Oak Creek, Wisconsin was described by eyewitnesses.
The 40-year-old man is said to be a resident of the same neighbourhood, entered the Gurdwara from the kitchen side with a gun, when food was being prepared for Sunday community lunch, and started firing indiscriminately. By the time the police arrived and engaged him in a gun fight, he had shot dead 6 persons and injured at least 10.
The senseless killer was shot dead by the police.
The mass killing began when a gunman or gunmen walked into the kitchen of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin about 10.30am local time and started shooting, according to congregation members in touch with people inside the building. “It was a very co-ordinated thing. It wasn’t haphazard,” temple member Amardeep Kaleka told CNN.
He said his father was wounded in the attack at the temple in a suburb south of Milwaukee.
Greenfield police chief Bradley Wentlandt said four people were killed inside the temple.
Three were shot dead outside, including a gunman killed by a police officer.
He declined to say whether there was more than one shooter, but hours after the attack heavily armed officers were still searching the sprawling temple complex for other suspects.
Milwaukee’s Froedtert Hospital said three men had been brought in wounded and were in critical condition. One was in the operating room, the hospital said in a statement.
The 20-year veteran officer who exchanged fire with the gunman was hit several times, Mr Wentlandt said. He was taken to hospital and is expected to survive.
Witnesses said hostages were being held inside the temple but police did not confirm this.
US president Barack Obama, alerted of the shooting at the Camp David presidential retreat in Maryland, said he was “deeply saddened” by the attack, according to a White House statement.
He said his administration would give whatever aid was needed to respond to and investigate it.
The Indian embassy in Washington said it was in contact with the White House’s national security council about the shooting and an Indian diplomat had been sent to the Sikh temple in Wisconsin.
The mass killing in Oak Creek is yet another in a recent rampage by gunmen in suburban America.
Hindu brothers and sisters mourn in candle light.
In July, 12 people were killed and 58 wounded when a shooter opened fire at a screening of the latest Batman film in the Denver suburb of Aurora, Colorado. In January 2011, then-congresswomen Gabrielle Giffords was the target of an assassination attempt in which six people were killed and 13 were wounded.
“The gunman is worse than the one at the theater a couple of weeks ago because he targeted an entire community,” said temple member Jagatjit Sidhu.
He was among dozens of temple members and onlookers who gathered in a car park near the temple after police sealed the building off.
The Sikh faith includes belief in only one God and that the goal of life is to lead an exemplary existence. It is the fifth-largest organised religion in the world with more than 30 million followers.
The temple in Oak Creek was founded in October 1997 and has a congregation of 350 to 400 people. There are an estimated 500,000 or more Sikhs in the US.
In the US, especially since the attacks of September 11th, 2001, Sikhs have sometimes been confused publicly with Muslims because of their turban headdress and beards. In September 2001, a Sikh petrol station owner in Arizona was shot dead by a man who was said to be seeking revenge on Muslims for the attacks on the US.
Members of the Milwaukee Sikh community complained to police and a state representative last year about an increase in robberies and vandalism at Sikh-owned petrol stations and shops. – (Reuters/Zeenews Bureau).

“Sarabjit was a Gursikh, is a Gursikh and will remain a Gursikh” ~ Dalvir Kaur (Sarabjit’s Sister).
“Sarabjit had been converted to Islam and was now known as Sarfaraz” ~ Surjeet Singh (Recently freed Convict who returned India Pak Jail after three decades).
Sarabjit converted to Islam, has a Muslim name Sarfaraz: Surjeet
HE Special Correspondent from Lahore | 29th June, 2012 :: This question is haunting many of the Indians today when it is well known that an big numbers of Hindu and Sikh prisoners are being converted into Islam and the Pak authorities deliberately serve beef to all prisoners not considering the religious bars of anyone. Reports are in the air that Sarabjit Singh, the most highlighted convict in Pak Jail had been converted to Islam and was now known as Sarfaraz and another Indian prisoner on death row in Pakistan, Kirpal Singh, had also been converted to Islam and had given a new name Mohammed Din.
Surjeet Singh who was freed recently by Pakistan and who was fellow of Sarabjit Singh in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat Jail claimed that Sarabjit had been converted to Islam and was now known as Sarfaraz.
Speaking to mediapersons at the information centre of the Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee after paying obeisance at Golden Temple, Surjeet said: “Sarabjit Singh andKirpal Singh have converted to Islam. They probably did so in hope of getting mercy. But no mercy was granted to them. Pakistan authorities do not grant mercy to even their own nationals.”
When contacted, Sarabjit’s sister Dalbir Kaur denied that Sarabjit had converted to Islam. “This is not true at all. Sarabjit was a Gursikh, is a Gursikh and will remain a Gursikh. He has kept photos of Sikh gurus in jail and a Sikh religious book. He regularly recites from that book,” she said.
Dalbir added that during her visit to Pakistani jail to meet Sarabjit, she did heard people calling Kirpal Singh by a Muslim name. “But this is not the case with Sarabjit. Had he converted, he would have some Muslim name,” she said. “When I went to meet him in Pakistan, he was either addressed as Sarabjit or Manjit.”
When informed that Surjeet had claimed that Sarabjit had changed his name to “Sarfaraz” after “converting to Islam”, Dalbir insisted: “No way, Sarabjit remains Sarabjit and a Sikh and has not changed his name or converted to Islam.”
Dalbir also took exception to Surjeet’s statement that Sarabjit was hale and hearty in jail. “How can a person lodged in solitary confinement be happy? If this was the case, why will prisoners seek release?” she asked.
Meanwhile, Surjeet claimed that if things fell in place, he would ensure that Sarabjit was back home in three months. “Seven to eight MLAs of Pakistan are my very good friends. Even Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari is my good friend. I have had breakfast with Zardari. And I will ensure Sarabjit’s release,” Surjeet said, alleging that the Pakistani media and the ISI were against Sarabjit’s release.
“It has to be done at the presidential level. If ISI comes to know about any effort for Sarabjit’s release, the agency will never allow it to happen,” he added. Saying that his and Sarabjit’s cases were entirely different, Surjeet added: “The case of Sarabjit, who faces charges of terrorism, is entirely different from mine. Neither India nor Pakistan would like to release terrorists.”
As per report, Hindu and Sikh prisoners are considered as the slaves of the Muslim Prisoners in Pak Jails with an exception of some political and classified prisoners of bilateral relation with the other states.
When the ISI linked terrorists of Pakistan or Pak affiliations like Kasab, Afjal or Hamjas are getting a special status in Indian jails and Indian Govt is spending crores of rupees for the facilities and amenities in highest grade, Indian nationals put into Pak jails for many causes or upon some fishy suspicion are facing a vicious Islamic torture there. GOI has any botheration to that?

Attention Hindu Girls!
So may happen to you. Think & Rethink!!
*How to seduce, abduct, captive and gang rape a Hindu Girl…..Really the practical sessions are going on Sindh Madrassas?
**Madrassas are now turned as (un)holi palaces for conducting Terrorism, Sexploitation and Spreading Talibanism under Quranic dictum??
***In Pakistan 74% Minority Hindu, Christian girls-Women are facing sexual harassment by the Muslim beasts…..
OH MY HINDU-BUDDHISTS-SIKH-JAIN-CHRISTIAN-JEWISH & OTHER NON MUSLIM SISTERS ! DO NOT MARRY SUCH A MUSLIM BEAST ONLY TRYING TO SEXPLOIT YOU. SPIT ON THEM, KICK UNDER BELT…….
ISLAMABAD: Hindu girls are being forcibly kept in various madrassas in Sindh and are later forced to marry Muslims, Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) MNA Dr Azra Fazl told the National Assembly on Thursday. She was speaking on issue of Faryal Shah (Rinkle Kumari) who was allegedly abducted and forced to marry and convert to Islam earlier this month in Sindh.
While speaking on the point of order, Fazl said that Hindus are facing a lot of challenges in Sindh. She stressed the need for legislation to protect minority rights and to end forced conversions.
Fazl, who is also the sister of President Asif Ali Zardari, highlighted the issue in the parliament at a time when her brother received a sharply-worded letter from California Congressman Brad Sherman urging him to take action to ensure the return of Faryal to her family, pursuant to reports that she had been abducted with the help of a PPP lawmaker.
Nafeesa Shah, another MNA from Sindh also endorsed her colleague’s idea and said that the parliament should introduce legislation on “forced conversions”. Various non-Muslims were being forced to accept Islam as being reported by the media, she observed.
“Protection of the minorities should be ensured as enshrined in the Constitution,” Shah added.
Majority of lawmakers including Lal Chand and Mehish Kumar representing minorities in the parliament expressed concerns over the kidnapping and forced conversions of Hindu girls. They said it was the right of every person to accept any religion but nobody can be forced in this regard.
MNA Justice (retd) Fakhar-un-Nisa stressed on the implementation of laws when it comes to solve the issue of minorities. “Minorities’ rights should be protected at all cost.”
An real imagery published in FaceBook regarding the Fundamental Islamic Teaching given from the Islamic seminaries.
Giving a policy statement on floor of the House, Minister of State for Interfaith Harmony and Minorities Affairs Akram Masih Gill said that the present government has taken unprecedented steps for the uplift and empowerment of minorities.

LAHORE: As many as 74 per cent of minority women living in Pakistan faced sexual harassment during 2010 and 2011, respectively, while 43 per cent complained about facing religious discrimination at workplaces, educational institutions and neighborhoods.
“Moreover, 27 per cent minority women (Christian and Hindu) faced discrimination in admissions to educational institutions and were forced to take Islamic studies for absence of any alternative subject,” National Commission for Justice and Peace (NCJP) Executive Director Peter Jacob disclosed this while launching a study titled ‘Life on the Margins’ conducted by the commission with rights activists, media and people from various walks of life at a local hotel on Wednesday.
The research, which was based on interviews of minority women, was led by Jennifer Jag Jivan and Mr Jacob while it was assessed by three prominent minority women, MNA Asiya Nasir, Ernestine C. Pinto and Pushpa Kumari, with the coordination of Sobia John.
Giving a briefing, Mr Jacob said the study looked into social, political and economic conditions of the minority women with the help of a baseline survey conducted in 26 districts of Punjab and Sindh, the two provinces where 95 per cent of minorities in the country lived.
“As many as 1,000 Hindu and Christian women were interviewed – the two communities forming 92 per cent of the entire minority population in Pakistan,” he added.
He said the study reviewed the literature available on minority women. Issues such as legal disparity, review of personal laws concerning minorities, religious and gender biases, forced conversions, lack of policy focus and segregated data were part of this study that affected everyday life of the minority women, he said.
