Mubashir Zaidi | Dawn News | Karachi | 9 Nov 2014:: Protesting over increasing attacks on minorities and forced conversions, the Pakistan Hindu Council on Sunday proposed the establishment of an active committee at the federal level under Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to prevent atrocities against minorities.
This was unanimously endorsed in an urgent meeting called by the executive body of the council, which also assigned Member National Assembly Dr. Ramesh Kumar Vankwani the task of contacting other representative parties for their support.
The meeting was chaired by Chela Ram Kewlani to review mounting atrocities against minorities across the country.
Condemning the brutal killing of a Christian couple in Punjab, the council deplored the kidnapping of Hindu citizens, particularly of minor girl Anjali from Dherki, Kiran from Nawab Shah and Jeoti from Hyderabad.
The council demanded the prime minister and provincial chief ministers implement effective and practical legislation to protect minorities, adding that interfaith harmony and Hindu marriage laws were needed.

Chela Ram said that oppressed minorities saw a ray of hope with the Supreme Court order to protect minorities’ rights, but unfortunately state institutes due to a negligent approach have failed to implement the apex court’s order.
“Minorities are still as vulnerable as they were one-and-a half years ago and to add to their misery, the land mafia is actively engaged in illegally occupying religious places of minorities and the kidnapping of Hindu girls is still happening.
“The minorities are losing hope with the incumbent government,” Ram stated.
Dr Ramesh Kumar said the Constitution of Pakistan guaranteed minorities rights.
“Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah on 11 August 1947 clearly said in his speech that the first duty of the state is to provide welfare for its citizens… minorities’ rights should be protected without discrimination,” he added.
The Pakistan Hindu Council also proposed names for inclusion in the interfaith committee; including Pir Amin-ul-Hasnat Shah (State Minister for Religious Affairs), Maulana Shirani (JUI-F), Mir Hasil Bazanjo (BNP), Khawaja Sohail (MQM), Abdul-Qehar Khan Wadan (PMAP). Dr Ramesh Kumar Vankwani from Hindu Community and Kamran Michael from the Christian community.
They also suggested the inclusion of at least one member from each religious party, including the Jamaat-i-Islami.
“Kidnapping of innocent Hindu girls, forced conversions and marriages are issues regularly faced by Hindus, mainly due to the absence of a Hindu marriage registration act,” said Dr Ramesh.
He regretted that the Sindh Government has failed to address minorities’ issues, including the protection of places of worship and cemeteries
Dr Ramesh said that misuse of blasphemy laws on a larger scale has resulted in the harassment of minorities, further stating that the laws are manipulated to settle personal disputes.
Expressing grave concerns on the burning alive a Christian couple, Dr. Ramesh said the incident had created a sense of panic among minorities.
He said that it has increased insecurity among minorities, leaving them to question the performance of state institutions at the national and international level.
Dr Kumar also warned that the fire ignited today, which is affecting the lives of innocent minorities, would wrap all Pakistani citizens in the near future.

In a state run by Mamata Banerjee and Trinamool Congress where Islamic hooliganism has no limit.
HINDUS IN MURSHIDABAD ARE DENIED FOR LAST RITES IN A 200 YRS OLD SAMSHAN (BURNING PLACE) GHAT.
Dead body of late Kalidasi Saradar is awaiting in an uncertain situation. Normal Hindu cremation needs Islamic approval and police permission in Bengal ! West Bengal: A Jihadi State in India.
Hindu Existence Media Bureau | Malda | 29 July 2014:: Hindus staying in Muslim majority areas in West Bengal are in an inexplicable mess towards a journey underlined with a clear mark of extinction from their home and hearth.
Now, very dangerous report has been surfaced where it is seen that the Hindus are denied their rights of cremation in a 200 yrs old burning ghat (Samshan Ghat) solely possessed and owned by the Hindus.
There is a Burning Ghat at the bank of Ganges in Arjunpur (Farakka Block, PS. Farakka, Pin. 742231, Dist. Murshidabad) which is 200 yrs old at least as per records and hear-say run in. Hindus of the locality viz. Hazarpur (within 1 KM), Sankopara (3 KM), Shibnagar (4 KM), Bhabanipur (5 KM), Mahadebnagar ( 5 KM ), Beniagram ( 6 KM ) , Nayansukh ( 7 KM ) , Malancha ( 9 KM ), Farakka (10 KM), and the Hindus even far off have been taking the advantage to do their last rites at Ganga for their nearest and dearest one at their expiry.
In the recent past Muslims from Bangladesh and other Muslims from here and there gathered at Sankopara Hlat Rly Station (nearest Rly station for the all places mentioned above) and established a Jehadi land there and tried to uproot the Hindu influence from the adjacent locality. Now they are trying to grab the land of Arjunpur Hindu cremation place step by step.
On 4th May one Biren Pal of village Hazarpur expired and his relatives took the mortal body of Late Biren Pal to Arjunpur Samshan Ghat for cremation. Immediately the local Muslims started disturbance to take away the body in other place for cremation as burning of the mortal body is not permitted in Islamic belief. As Hindus protested and started the cremation (burning rituals), the fanatic Muslim charged two bombs and Hindus compelled to flee leaving the half burnt dead body on the pyre in the Samshan ground. Finding no other option Hindus went to lodge a complain to the nearest police station. When the Hindus reached again to the Samshan Ghat accompanying police staff, they did not find the remains of dead body as the Muslims threw the half burnt body in the Ganges.
Smt. Rakhi Pal, widow of late Biren Pal has lodged a FIR (PS case No 142/14 of Farakka PS) on 4th May and Police has started a case under IPC 326/34 and 3/4 E 3 Act accordingly.
Though police registered cases against Bhadu Sheikh (s/0. Soleman), Rafiq Sheikh (s/o. Mahasin), Amin Sheilh (s/o. not known), Habil Shiekh (s/o late Wares) and 25-30 unknown perpetrators, still police did not arrest them. Rather they are roaming free to create tension and fear among Hindus.
Moreover, Police issued an instruction to Hindus to give an information for any death in the locality so that Police may accompany with the dead body for safe cremation at Arjunpur Samshan ghat. This was fixed in the all party peace meeting held by the BDO Farakka where IC Farakka and the SDPO, Jangipur were also present.
Complain made by Smt Rakhi Pal and the FIR in Farakka Police Station.
In the very next day on 6th May (mid night of 5th May), one elderly woman of Arjunpur died on heart attack and the matter was duly informed to Police Station. When the Police and the cremation friends reached near Arjunpur Samshan Ghat in the morning, the Muslim hooligans started stone and brick pelting heavily. Police was completely unsuccessful to tame the Muslims and anyway take away the dead body to the local sub- Health Center in the afternoon. While the Hindus started protest against Muslim miscreants and for the callousness of Police, Police forcefully took away the body to Farakka Barrage area (at Farakka Feeder Canal) and cremated the dead body without the consent of the relatives of the deceased.
As a result, a Hindu retaliation flared up in the near by Hindu villages and they arranged a protest meeting at Arjunpur market on 6th May and Muslims miscreants came all on a sudden and ransacked 4 shops of Gunadhar Ghosh who was giving a leadership for the Hindu protest.
Again on 8th May, when the relatives of one deceased Madan Mondal (s/o Late Parameswar) informed Police to give protection for cremation in Arjunpur Samshan Ghat, Police hectically took away the dead body of Madan near to Farraka barrage for a cremation without considering any say of the relatives of Mondal.
Finding no other option, Hindus now perform cremation rites of dead body of their relatives not in Arjunpur Samshan Ghat but in a far off place under compulsion. The rights of Hindus for a dignified last rites in the bank of river Ganga is snatched away from Hindus in a State run by Smt Mamata Banerjee (Chief Minister of WB) alias Mamtaz Banu for her enormous appeasement policy and giving a free hand of Jihad to her Muslim brothers. Hindus are gradually loosing their rights in Bengal under a Jihad promoted by the Govt. itself.
… We think it was a time for Gen Election in May and our Media friend were very much busy for the election coverage etc. and did not get any time to see such a silly (!) thing of Hindu rights violation. But, now Hindus are denied to perform their last rites (fire cremation) for long three months as a final setting in a 200 yrs old Samshan Ghat in Murshidabad, West Bengal. Would they please manage some time to verify this truth of this report or be prepared to face an Islamic hell in their family in their own place within very few days!!!
The matter of violation of the Hindu rights caused by obstinate Muslim mentality has been reported by the villagers under Arjunpur and Nayansukh Gram Panchayet to the District Magistrate through a mass petition dated 3rd June without yielding any proper redressal for such a gross violation of religious and human rights. Hindu villagers in the locality put a question to the authority that while the illegal occupation of the Rly land by the outsider Muslims in the locality is being valid, how the rights of the age old rights of cremation land of the Hindus is violated by illegal Muslim infiltrators from Bangladesh.
Where the teaching of Quran prevails, the paramount torture of Jihadis persist, and the rights of Infidels are snatched. It is no exception in Bengal. The Jihadis in West Bengal are so empowered by the State Govt. to take every account of Hindus in their birth and death. Muslims in Bengal have started objection for the cremation of Hindus in Bengal. They will object the birth of Kaffir Hindus in the next very essentially!

Sit in Demonstion at Jantar Mantar, New Delhi
Sara Assam Bangali Jateeya Parishad demands citizenship for Bangladeshi Hindus.
Demonstrations held at Jantar-Mantar, New Delhi demanding Bangla Deshi Hindus be given citizenship
Hindus have to stage agitations for their just demands even in BJP Government. When the actual ‘Acche Din/ good days’ will come?
PM Modi should keep his Election promise – Give Indian Citizenship to Bangaladeshi Hindus! – Shri Talukdar, ‘Sara Assam Bangali Jateeya Parishad’
Sudhendu Talukdar (on mike) while expressing his views during demonstrations in New Delhi.
By Special Correspondent | New Delhi | 29 July 2014:: On Saturday, 26th July, an Rights forum called ‘Sara Assam Bangali Jateeya Parishad (SABJP)’ staged demonstrations at Jantar-Mantar, New Delhi, the place of demonstration in Indian capital, demanding citizenship for Hindus who have come from Bangla Desh. Later, representation was submitted in the name of Prime Minister, Narendra Modi and BJP’s national President, Amit Shah. Shri Sudhendu Talukdar of SABJP, Shri. Pradip Muzumdar, Vice President of ‘Kaali Mandir Samiti’, Dr. Charudatta Pingale, national Guide of Hindu Janajagruti Samiti, its Shri Vinay Panwalkar and other Bengali Hindu activists, who had come from Assam, participated in the demonstrations. Shri. Talukdar said, “Narendra Modi had promised before elections that Bangla Deshi Hindus would be given Indian citizenship after his coming to power; but he seems to have forgotten about it. He should keep his promise.”
The programme came into surface as a joint effort of Sara Assam Bangali Jateeya Parishad (SABJP), Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS), Delhi Kaali Mandir Samiti, Rashtriyee Hindu Andolan (RHA) and Hindu Existence Forum.
Bengali Hindus came to India from Bangladesh to get rid off religious atrocities, must be given Indian citizenship: Sudhendu Mohan Talukdar, Advisor, SABJP.
In his speech Shri Talukdar said: More than On Crore Hindus have taken refuge by running away from the clutches of fanatics of Bangladesh (Erstwhile East Pakistan) at the time of partition of India in 1947 and at the time of Liberation War of Bangladesh in 1971. The atrocities and persecution on minority Hindus in Bangladesh is tremendous. Time to time Hindu minorities compelled to take refuge in Bharat under compulsion. However, if they are sent back to Bangladesh, it would be very similar to sending cows back to butchers that have been rescued from their clutches ! Will BJP Government understand this grave issue ?
In 2007, Congress State Government of Assam has detained some suspicious persons amongst Hindus and Muslims; on the basis of an order issued by the State Government and Hindus, who have come here from Bangladesh few decades ago, are treated with bias and repression. Release of such Hindus also made as one of the demands during the agitation. Sri Talukdar demanded reasonable and respectable status of Hindus came from Bangladesh as equal citizen of India, keeping them out of the list of ‘D’ (doubtful) voters list.
Talukdar praised the role of Hindu Janjagruti Samiti as a key organisation for making continuous efforts to fortify the integrity of the National and helping all small nationalist forums to get their right and natural justice in all possible ways.
Government will be responsible for ‘Dharma-kranti’ ! – Dr. Charudatta Pingale, National Guide, HJS.
Dr. Charudatta Pingale said while guiding demonstrators, “The rulers are responsible for this condition. A king who cannot recognize loyal citizens, who does not know who are the true sons of the soil, is unrighteous. In such situation, unity is the only solution forgetting own language, region and caste etc. We should proclaim that ‘Hindu is our only identity’. If the rulers do not take any action, Hindus will have to get ready for ‘Dharma-kranti’ and the Government will be responsible for outcome of such ‘Dharma-kranti’.”
It is very unfortunate to keep loyal citizens deprived of citizenship ! – Shri Pradeep Muzumdar, Patron, SABJP.
Shri Pradeep Muzumdar said, “People, who strived to get freedom for the country, are deprived of getting citizenship which is very unfortunate. The agitation will be intensified in future, if no action is taken by the Government.”
MEMORANDUM GIVEN TO SHRI NARENDRA MODI, PM, BHARAT.
Next Programme in the same issues.
It is retrieved from the source of SABJP that Bharat Raksha Manch is going to hold its National Convention on the problems of Bangladeshi Hindu Sharnarthi (BD Hindu refugee) and Bangladeshi Muslim Ghuspetian (BD Muslim infiltrators) in the month of October this year in Bhopal, the state capital of Madhya Pradesh.
National Convenor of Bharat Raksha Manch, Sri Suryakanta Kelkar (firstname.lastname@example.org, +919479594693) conveyed that a two days National level seminar cum workshop will be held for the selected delegates on 5-6 Oct, 2014 at Bhopal. In this national convention the tremendous danger of illegal Muslim infiltration from Bangladesh will be main theme of discussion along with the problems being faced by crores of Bangladeshi Hindus after Islamic victimization.

On 1st July Muslim crowds numbering near 150 people threw bricks at the ISKCON temple gate in Swamibag in Dhaka, the capital city of of Bangladesh. More than eight ISKCON members were injured in the sacred Ratha Yatra week .

Sikh community storms Pakistan Parliament to protests against desecration of their holy books and shrines.
Protesting Sikh community members walk through the courtyard of the Parliament House on Friday after they had stormed its gate.
Islamabad | HE Bureau | 23 May 2014:: More than Dozens of baton-holding protestors from the Sikh community pushed past the front gate and entered the grounds of Pakistan parliament on Friday, protesting recent attacks on their houses of worship (Gurudwara), desecration of Holy books (Sri Sri Guru Granth Sahib) and historical Sikh shrines within Pakistan.
Sikhs from Sindh and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province had gathered outside parliament to protest against what they claimed was the alleged desecration in Shikarpur of Guru Granth Sahib, the holy book of the Sikh community.
Sikhs are a tiny minority in predominantly Muslim Pakistan, with most of them living in the southern Sindh province.
Senior police officer Aftab Cheema said the Sikh leaders were also protesting against several attacks on their worship places in Sindh.
After storming through the gates of Parliament House in protest of alleged desecration of their holy books in Sindh, Sikh protesters presented five demands to the government.
The joint opposition in the Senate had been in the middle of a press conference when the protesters entered the premises by breaking through the gate, despite a heavy contingent of police personnel being present at the location. Taken aback by the demonstration, the senators abandoned the press conference and ran inside the building.
The protesters were also not deterred by tear gas shells and went on to present their demands to the government.
The members of the Sikh community said that their religious sanctity had been violated at least seven times in the past few years. The most recent incident they cited was the desecration of the Guru Granth Sahib, the central religious text of Sikhism, in Mirpur Mathelo , District Ghotki.
Upon learning more about the protests outside, Chairman Senate Nayyar Hussain Bukhari asked the leader of the house to request the interior ministry to conduct an inquiry and submit a report by Monday.
Senator Heman Dass, who asked for the chair’s permission to address the issue, said that he had submitted a call attention notice on this matter was not allowed to speak.
The Chairman Senate maintained that nobody was allowed to force their way into the premises of the Parliament in this manner.
The gates of the Parliament were closed for more than two hours as Senator Zafar Ali Shah, MNA Dr Darshan of Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) and Senator Amajeet of the Awami National Party (ANP) negotiated with a group of few dozen Sikh protesters.
The government subsequently decided that a 13-member committee of Sikhs would come forward with their demands, assuring them that the government would cooperate with them.
Senator Zafar Ali Shah then revealed that, upon forming the committee, the members of the Sikh community had apologised for entering the parliament in a violent manner.
The protesters claimed that their religious sanctity had been violated as many as 7 times in the past few years.
He further added that the desecration of the holy text was an intolerable act.
Leader of the House Raja Zafarul Haq assured the 13-member Sikh committee that he would forward their demands to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.
IG Sindh has also been informed about the concerns of the Sikh community.
The incident was an eye-opener for the authorities whose claim of ‘tight-security’ in the red zone was refuted. It was also indicative of the consistent breach of rights of other religious factions in the country and their growing frustration.
There are approximately 20,000 adherents of Sikhism in Pakistan. Earlier in March this year, Sikh residents of Peshawar had protested against the killing of a Sikh hakim in Charsadda and the abduction of two others in DI Khan.
The Inspector General (IG) of Islamabad Police, Altaf Cheema, while speaking to the media accepted that it was a security breach for which the police was to be blamed. He also accepted that despite repeated calls by the Station House Officer (SHO) Bara Kaho, Sattar Shah no steps were taken to stop the protesters.
Police officials on duty stated that they did not take action against protestors as they did not receive any orders from the top officials.

Hindu households, temple attacked in Bangladesh
Attack on Hindus out of false FB defamation of Muhammad. Representational Pic. HE Archive.
PTI | Dhaka | May 5, 2014:: A mob of nearly 3,000 attacked Hindu households and a temple in eastern Bangladesh after two youths from the community allegedly insulted the Prophet Muhammad on Facebook.
Police on Monday arrested 17 people, including the principal of Bagmara Madrasa, for the attack on the temple and over two dozen households at Homna in Comilla district, about 100km south east of Dhaka, last week.
“We so far arrested 17 people and some of them made confessional statements regarding the attack. A manhunt is under way to arrest the rest of the culprits,” police chief of Homna, Aslam Shikdar said.
He said suspected mastermind of the attack Nazrul Islam is still on the run.
Minority Hindus are attacked again and again in Bangladesh on false rumors on defaming Muhammad in facebook. In most of the cases it is established that some Muslim perpetrators like to use the social media like facebook to upload objectionable comments and pictures against Islam and Muhammad in a very motivated way. After spreading the rumours of blasphemy or the defamation of Muhammad, the Islamic goons attack Hindus, Hindu-house holds, temples and specially the women folk. This nefarious design of Muslims must be condemned everywhere. In this continuity of attack on Hindu-Buddhist minority in Bangladesh, the retaliation on Muslim by Hindus and Buddhinst can be emerged as a big challenge to the Muslims, where they are minority. Muslims must stop persecution on Hindus in Bangladesh or otherwise…… Editor, Hindu Existence.

The local police chief said steps were under way to put the accused on trial on charges of attacking the Hindu households and the temple under a planned manner.
A makeshift police camp was setup at the village where the incident took place on April 26 following rumours that two Hindu youths had allegedly insulted the prophet in a Facebook post.
Earlier reports said culprits mobilized attackers mostly belonging to fundamentalist Jamaat-e-Islami and several other ultra-right groups who ransacked the temple and the nearby households and looted some valuables.
“The attack continued for some 20 minutes but during the time, the culprits preferred not to injure anyone … our initial investigation found it was a pre-planned attack as they used loudspeakers and distributed leaflets to mobilize the attack,” Shikdar said.
People at the neighbourhood said nearly 3,000 attackers, mostly from outside the locality, staged the attack as the village elders were set to hold a meeting to resolve the issue of the alleged defamation of the prophet.
Shikdar said police immediately rushed to the scene but reached the remote village only when the attackers had fled. (via TOI).
- An easy prey to attack on Hindus for a facebook defamation of Muhammad or anything.

POK HINDUS DENIED RIGHTS IN KASHMIR.
Diversity Report | Roseburg OR (USA) | April 24, 2014::
[The HINDU nation was helpless to take on the Muslim MINORITY in 1947 when the Islamic aggression took out five provinces to create ISLAMIC Pakistan. They were helpless onlookers when the Constitution of Partitioned India was written up with NO reference to PARTITION. This treacherous document legalized MUTILATION OF INDIA (PARTITION) by outright denial. It also avoided the word “Hindu” while imposing BOGUS secularism (“alienation from religion”) upon our staunch Hindu nation.This is due to centuries of SLAVERY under brutal Islam and then the Europeans that made them neutral, secular, de-linked & detached from one another and timid, in order to survive. There is great “mileage” to be derived for the corrupt and anti national Government of India in this SEPARATION, DISCRIMINATION, CORRUPTION and HINDU BASHING. THE TRAGEDY OF BHARAT IS ITS HINDUS. SO THE CASE OF 5 LAKH REFUGEE HINDUS FROM POK (PAKISTAN OCCUPIED KASHMIR). THEY SUFFER AS INDIVIDUALS AND CANNOT GENERATE A COLLECTIVE RESPONSE TO LIBERATE THEMSELVES IN ONE DAY BY MASS UPRISING. THE REPERCUSSION UPON REST HINDUS IS ALSO MINIMUM. HINDUS MUST ACT NOW TO SAVE KASHMIR AND KASHMIR HINDUS. In this Diversity Report the Plight of POK Hindu Refugees are narrated shortly – U Brahmachari & R Singh.]
DIVERSITY-USA TO TAKE UP THE ISSUE WITH NEW MODI-SWAMY GOVT.
When basic rights of citizens have been denied continuously from the country’s independence in 1947 and no government, despite scores of petitions, pleadings and representations made by the impacted people, corrected this serious violation of the Indian Constitution, it speaks volumes about the authenticity, universality, nature and rational character of Indian democracy, said Dr. Jagan Kaul, Chairman of Diversity-USA while commenting about the state of affairs prevailing in India’s J&K. We are determined to take up this issue with the incoming Modi-Swamy ( Narendra Modi and Dr Subramanian Swamy) Govt. for satisfactory and legal resolution, he said. ( Diversity-USA is a democratic think tank on minority issues in the United States which has been fighting against the violation of the minority rights in J&K’s ever since Wahabi Muslims assumed the control of the state Govt. with the help of the Indian National Congress.)
It is a shame that the largest democracy in the world under Islamic influence has been denying the rights of five Lakh refugees (Indian citizens) formerly residents of Pakistan occupied Kashmir, living in Jammu City. For the past 67 years neither the J&K nor the Indian federal government had felt urgency to correct this horrendous mistake, said Dr. Kaul. Under the dynastic regimes, both in J&K and India, the illegal and uncalled for emphasis upon the religious, ethnic and communal components in enforcing the central principles of the Indian democracy in the state have seriously eroded the minority rights. This unconstitutional, undemocratic and outright unethical process had an adverse impact upon the growth and stability of India’s nationhood in this region, said Dr. Kaul.
THE COMMUNAL REGIMES ILLEGALLY DENYING RIGHTS OF HINDUS
Ironically this outright communal policy was set in motion against the Hindu refugees in India’s only Muslim majority state. Such discriminating and vindictive policies are enforced against the non-Muslim minorities in all of the 53 Muslim countries. What is thoroughly disgusting and disappointing is that all of the Indian regimes, one after the other, during the past 67 years despite claiming to be secular, chose not to take action against this unbelievable constitutional violation.
MODI – TERRIFIES ISLAMISTS AND FUNDAMENTALISTS
Now the emergence of Narendra Modi at the helm presents a huge threat to the State’s ruling class that has benefited by continuing to govern under the communal and colonial policies of “divide and rule.” Narendra Modi is committed to rejecting the currency of this policy in his Govt. as he has done inGujarat – the state he ruled for a decade. He is committed to building a single unified nation without any rewards or discrimination on the basis of religious, communal or ethnic affiliations. He wants to change the content, context and complexion of India’s national politics. Accordingly it is only a matter of months when these fifteen Lakh refugees will either be recognized as “state subjects” in J&K or the requirement of “state subject hood” would be gotten rid off altogether. These refugees are not stateless people accordingly they can not be treated as people without rights as doing so would be a serious crime.
5 LAKH HINDUS IN CAMPS FOR 67 YEARS WITHOUT RIGHTS
Ever since independence these 5 Lakh refugees have been living in camps in Jammu. They and their children have been denied the right to education, jobs and ownership of homes in the state. Although under the constitution of the state there is a set number of assembly seats reserved for the people of PoK but none of those seats have been given to these five Lakh people although they are from the Pak occupied territories. The spirit of Kashmiriyat which promises equal rights for all Kashmiris has been turned upside down in this case as well. Even the Human Rights organizations have shown no concern whatsoever about the refugees and therefore, have not taken any measures towards the restoration of their rights.
This total indifference persists because both Kashmir and India are ruled by anti-Hindu governments and these refugees are mostly non-Muslims and Hindus. If only these refugees were Sunnis their needs would have been fulfilled on day one. Although for settling down in Kashmir one has to be a “state subject” but this qualifying requirement was not applied for Muslims by a sympathetic regime. Consequently we find Muslim settlers in Kashmir from Tibet, Chechnya, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Burma, Thailand and India and in one form or the other both J&K and Indian governments extended an extra long helping hand in settling them down properly and they enjoy all of the citizenship rights. Abdullah regimes have been the driving force for bringing about this Islamization. But no such luck if the seeker were Hindus or non-Muslims. And that is the picture of Hindustan under the congress raj. We are going to make sure that the incoming Modi-Swamy Govt. rejects this discriminatory policy and admits these refugees as full-fledged citizens of India as well as of J&K State thereby restoring all their rights. We are going to ask the new Govt. to adequately compensate them for the hardships, loss and suffering endured by them during the past 67 years, said Dr. Kaul. In this regard a seven member delegation of these refugees has recently met with Narendra Modi and apprised him about the worst possible conditions, hardships and difficulties suffered by them during the past sixty-seven years.

Pakistan Supreme Court to take up Hindu temple case on Monday.
Reports have been called from the culture and heritage department for the hearing at the Supreme Court on February 25. PHOTO: RASHID AJMERI/EXPRESS/FILE
Naeem Sahoutara | The Express Tribune | Karachi | February 23, 2014:: Chief Justice of Pakistan Tassaduq Hussain Jillani has taken suo motu notice of the alleged denial of access to members of the Hindu community to a century-old temple located in Tando Adam, The Express Tribune has learnt.
A three-member bench of the apex court is expected to take up the matter at its Karachi registry on February 25. Reports have been called from the provincial government’s culture and heritage department. Meanwhile, Jacobabad’s deputy commissioner has filed a report to the apex court ahead of the proceedings. According to the commissioner, the Amrapur Asthan has been declared a protected heritage and historical site by the Sindh Culture, Tourism and Antiquities department through an official notification issued on November 7, 2013. “There is no hindrance to the minority community with regard to their religious practice and they are free to worship in the temple,” the commissioner stated in the report. “In fact, a birthday/religious annual function was also held during June 2013 in the temple by the minority community.”
The report further states that people of the Hindu community have also requested for permission to construct a boundary wall around the temple with their own resources. The request has been forwarded to the culture, tourism and antiquities department.
A member of the Hindu community, Reejho Mal, had taken the provincial chief secretary, culture secretary and a government school’s administration to court last year for allegedly blocking the Hindu community’s access to the place of worship – Amrapur Asthan of Prem Prakash Panth.
This site, which is spread over seven acres, houses a historic temple and a samadhi – or final resting place- of Swami Teenu Ram Maharaj, who had laid down the foundation of ashrams or Hindu spiritual centres.
The petitioner had said that the samadhi and the temple are important religious places visited by devotees from across the country and abroad.
“Because of the law and order situation during the late 1950s, most Hindu families fled the area,” he recalled. “The provincial government allotted a portion of the temple’s land to the education department, which established Dr Ziauddin Primary School there.”
The petitioner had alleged in his plea that the school’s administration, particularly the headmaster, was hostile towards members of the Hindu community. He (headmaster) had not been allowing members of the minority group to enter the place of worship and perform rituals, according to Mal.
He had claimed that in October 2012, the school’s administration had manhandled visiting Hindu pilgrims and did not let them enter the holy place, adding that a hostile group was also desecrating the sacred structures.
Several applications were sent to the authorities, asking them to ensure that Hindu community members get access to the temple and declare it as a protected heritage building. “Article 36 of the Constitution ensures right of free access to one’s worship place without any hindrance from the other,” argued Mal. “Since this place bears historical and archaeological importance, it must be declared as protected heritage under Section 6 of the Sindh Cultural Heritage (Preservation) Act 1994.”
The high court judges were pleaded to declare that it was illegal for the school’s administration to prevent members of his community from practicing their religion by blocking access to the temple.
Later on, a social welfare organisation also joined the proceedings, claiming that a temple did not exist at the site. Muhammad Azam Qureshi, the organisation’s representative, had alleged that the school was built at a spot on which a guest house comprising between 40 and 50 rooms once stood. He had pleaded to the court to dismiss the petitioner’s claim.
After hearing the arguments, the SHC had ordered in March 2013 the government official and the school’s management should ensure that Hindu community members can enter the temple freely. The provincial law officer was ordered to submit comments of government officials by this date.

Pakistani Hindus angered by ‘forced conversions’
PTI | KARACHI | Feb 17, 2014:: Pakistan’s Hindu minority is angered by “forced conversions”, with leaders of the community saying girls as young as six years were being pressured to change their religion.
“Can you accept your daughters being forcibly married to Hindu men?” said Raj Kumar, whose niece Rinkle Kumari was allegedly forced to convert and marry a Muslim man in 2012. Rinkle’s case made headlines and was even taken up by the Supreme Court.
Speaking at a seminar at the Karachi Press Club on Sunday on the theme “Hindus in Pakistan – issues and solutions”, Kumar called six-year-old Jumna on to the stage and said she and her 10-year-old sister Pooja would have been forced to change their religion if the media had not raised their case.
“What do children as young as Jumna and Pooja know about Islam and their own religion, for that matter, that they’d want to convert? This is the height of injustice,” Kumar was quoted as saying by the influential Dawn daily.
Jumna’s mother Marju and father Soma, residents of Mirpurkhas city in Sindh province, were present at the event.
“We are poor people. My little girls helped supplement our income by selling clay toys and utensils door to door. On February 4, they left home as usual with their basket of toys but didn’t return. We raised an alarm,” Soma said.
“After several reports in the media about our missing girls, it was found that they had been staying with a man named Rajab Pathan. The police of our area later produced them in court as Muslim children. We were prevented by the police from seeing them too.”
Soma said the court sent the girls to a Darul Aman or womens’ home following suspicions they may have been subjected to child abuse at home.
“Little Jumna has been given back to us now but Pooja is still at the Darul Aman. She seems to have been brainwashed into saying strange things about us. Her mind seems affected by the trauma,” he said.
All Hindu Rights Organisation chairman Kishan Chand Parwani, one of the organisers of the seminar, said it was sad to see the problems of Pakistan’s minorities “multiplying instead of decreasing”.
Former lawmaker Safdar Abbasi said it was a sad reality that not just Hindu temples but mosques, imambargahs or Shia prayer halls and churches were no longer safe in Pakistan.

The shoes I walk in: Minorities blame growing discrimination for the loss of a feeling of fellowship
Tribune Correspondent | Karachi | January 26, 2014:: In 1947, there were a 100 Parsi families living in Quetta. Today, there are only two.
“This figure alone tells the deplorable state of minorities in the country,” aptly concluded Justice (retd) Mehta Kailash Nath Kohli, the keynote speaker on the first day of a two-day workshop, ‘Status of Religious Minorities in Pakistan: Challenges and Response’, organised by the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) at the Avari Towers on Saturday.
The judge, who hails from Quetta, spoke how his community members — the Hindus — are being abducted and kidnapped. “Since Pakistan’s inception, not a single law has been legislated in favour of religious minorities,” he added.
Human rights defenders from Palestine, France, Indonesia and Philippines gravely listened to the woes of the minorities.
The issue of land grabbing of the houses of worships and properties by the Evacuee Trust Property Board also became a part of the discussion. Lawyer Rochi Ram claimed that one-million acre land in Badin, Umerkot and Tharparkar was left behind by the Hindus but the land was no longer under the community’s ownership. “The government takes over the land and gives it on lease. Many burial places belong to the non-Muslims but we are not allowed to bury the bodies over there.”
A speaker, M Prakash, said that there were 350 temples and gurdwaras in Sindh but only five to 10 were owned by them. Minority members pointed out how discussions over the misuse of the blasphemy law have disappeared from the forefront. “We have forwarded recommendations to the government on how can we stop the misuse of this law,” said father Emmanuel Yousaf.
Another participant, Jaipal Chhabria, lamented that there was not a single Christian parliamentarian in Sindh Assembly. “Bilawal Bhutto dreams of having a Christian prime minster but his government did not to make the required amendments to allow minorities to hold important positions.”
He frowned that the media showed Hindus as opportunists. HRCP’s vice-chairperson Amarnath Motumal discussed how personal laws and marriage rights of their community were being completely ignored. “The courts do not recognise our rights. Even seven-year-old girls are being converted.”
Pushpa Kumari broke down into tears as she narrated the incident when a body of a 17-year-old girl was taken out from a graveyard because she was buried in a Muslim graveyard.
Carrying a bunch of newspapers dated last week, she said, “There are five cases of sexual harassment of Hindu women in Sindh, including the gang rape of a teenager.”
Kumari said that recently the government released 39 bonded labourers of the Hindu community, but asked would it take their responsibility. She narrated how in 1996, she was told to quit her job at the Pakistan Atomic Energy Commission because their policy did not allow Hindus to work there.
A Sikh community member, Sardar Kalyan Singh, said that when they go to Peshawar or FATA, they have to pay Jizyah, which is sometimes Rs25,000, per person per year.
“Two days ago, a member of the Sikh community was killed because he refused to pay Jizya. When we spoke to the minister, he said that he is being forced to pay the same, so we should abide.”
A member of the Ahmadi community, Amir Mahmood, called for elimination of the anti-Ahmadi Ordinance.
Barkat Ali from the Hazara community said that he had lost his cousin in the recent attack on Hazara pilgrims. “We are left with no hope and we think the government is not serious about solving anything.”
Bigger picture: Foreign activists paint dismal picture
Foreign human rights defenders also shared the situation in their countries. Ihsan Ali Fauzi, a researcher at the Center for the Study of Religion and Demonstration in Indonesia, said that since 2006, discrimination and violence against Ahmadis, Biharis, Christians and Shias had increased.
Through his presentation, he shared that attacks on minorities have risen from 216 in 2010 to 244 in 2011. Fauzi said that the blasphemy law which came into existence in Indonesia in 2008, and the laws pertaining to seeking permission before building a house of worship led towards religious intolerance.
Present at the HRCP workshop, Palestinian Al-Haq’s general-director Shawan Jabarin, said that Pakistan’s government was not doing enough to tackle the human rights violations in the country.
“I feel that the government is not playing its part. The people here should be free from fear and enjoy freedom,” said Jabarin, who since 1987 has been fighting for the rights of his people back at home.
Jabarin, who also holds a Masters degree in International Human Rights Law, said that Al-Haq was founded in 1979 and is the first human rights organisation in the Middle East region. His organisation dealt with policies instead of isolated cases.
Jabarin is a firm believer of self-determination, and feels that people all over the world should be entitled to their right. “Back home, our people are not enjoying self-determination. They face property destruction and killings. We are struggling but one day we will get there. This is what we learn from history.”

‘Time has come,’ threat to Satkhira Hindus
Hindu families receive anonymous letters threatening eviction.
Dhaka Tribune Correspondent | updated on January 29, 2014 | Satkhira, Bangladesh:: “Time has come to leave your homes immediately,” that’s the message 20 Hindu families received as a threat in anonymous letters, in Satkhira Sadar, Tuesday afternoon.
“You have been living here for a long time. Not anymore. Whether you have to sell your domain or just abandon, the time has come for you to leave it immediately,” the letters said.
Some of the receipients were lawyers.
Satkhira is known to be a stronghold of the Jamaat-e-Islami and is listed as one of the “vulnerable” areas of the country where specialised forces are currently cracking down.
The families are living in fear after these hand-written letters were delivered to their homes, located adjacent to Judge Court in Palashpole in town, via post.
“This time you have been told nicely. But the next time there will not be any niceities.”
The letters were posted from Manobadhikar Sangha Satkhira (a local human-rights association by translation), according to what could be read from the envelopes.
The ones who received the letters were Rabin Sarker, Kamalesh Ghosh, Advocates Raghunath Mondal, Tapan Kundu, Tapan Das, Arpan Sarkar, and Kanti Lal Sarker, Swapan Sana, Proshenjit Chakrabarty, Sanatan Shil, Bappa Dey, Tapan Swarnakar, Samir Karmakar, Dulal Sarker, Sharbindu Mondal, Chitralekha Basu, Sona, Bimal Mondal, Mangal Sarkar and others.
Satkhira Sadar police station Officer-in-Charge Enamul Haque said no one filed a written complaint in this regard. “But, we are looking into the matter.”
The Hindu minority community came under attack immediately after the elections held on January 5, what was condemned by national and international quarters.
Leave Bangladesh, Satkhira Hindus told
Satkhira Correspondent | bdnews24.com | January 29, 2014:: Thirty Hindu families in Satkhira district have been threatened with dire consequences if they do not leave Bangladesh. Each family living opposite the Judges’ Court at Palashpole received a letter each on Tuesday, asking them to leave.
They, however, did not file any complaint with the police until late on Tuesday night.
Satkhira Sadar Police Station OC Enamul Haq said they were investigating.
The Jamaat-e-Islami had unleashed massive violence in the district after their leaders were awarded death or life sentences by the war crimes tribunals.
That continued until the Jan 5 polls.
Security forces started raiding such locations in Satkhira district where violence had taken place, specially areas where minorities had been targetted.
Several Jamaat and some BNP activists have been killed during purported encounters with the security forces.
Lawyers and government officials belonging to Hindu community have received these threat letters.

The language on all the letters was same and they were all hand-written.
The seal on the envelopes indicate they were posted from Khulna.
Several of those who received the letters told bdnews24.com that they would go to the police, seeking security.
OC Enamul told bdnews24.com: “Nobody has yet complained to the police station about this. We are investigating it.”

Kashmiri Pandits: The Forgotten Victims
Members of Roots In Kashmir a Kashmiri Pandit Group campaigning for restoration of human rights and dignity in Kashnmir during a protest to mark the Kashmiri Pandit Exodus day and the 24th anniversary of their forced exile in New Delhi on Sunday. PTI
Aditya Raj Kaul | Mid Day | January 19, 2014:: Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth. – Buddha In Kashmir there is no common truth. Every individual perhaps has a distinct version of truth. The conflict ridden valley, however has over the past two decades hidden one significant truth, that of the forced displacement of Kashmiri Pandits in 1990.
As India was inching towards reforms to transform its economic outlook in 1989, its northern-most state of Jammu & Kashmir faced a sudden violent rebellion from separatist groups who took up arms against the state machinery. While V.P. Singh took hold of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) in December that year, situation had turned grave as terrorists aided by Pakistan began selectively targeting the minority Kashmiri Pandits.The Pandits’ story today is one of the tragic and often overlooked catastrophes of a conflict that has claimed thousands of lives, and forced hundreds of thousands from their native land into exile in their own country.
The roots of this tragedy are immersed in 1986 with a well-planned strategy to execute Hindus from the valley. By 1990, the population saw their age old temples turned to ruins and lives at risk.Pakistan stepped up their campaign against India, new Islamist terror outfits swiftly mushroomed in the state; even as Jamait-e-Islami financed all madarsas to poison them against the minority Hindus and India, Pakistan further dictated youth to launch Jihad against India.
A terror strike so meticulously planned that its unprecedented display was terrifying. The camps in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK) began to provide training to innumerable Muslim men; India witnessed the emergence of the bloodiest Kalashnikov culture in the valley.Almost after two decades of the exodus, the Abdullah family – who are politically the strongest family of J&K – broke their silence over the issue. Omar Abdullah wrote a detailed post on his official blog blaming the local Muslim population to be ‘mute spectators’ to the forced exodus. Read full article here>>>
24 years on, nothing has changed for the exiled Kashmiri Pandits
Rediff | January 19, 2014:: The Government of India has failed Kashmiri Pandits as they are still living as refugees in their own country.
The state as well as the central government has not taken substantial measures till date for the return of Kashmiri Pandits back to the valley, says Varad Sharma.
Exactly 24 years ago, on January 19, 1990, the biggest ever exodus of people happened since the partition of India.
The minority Hindus of Kashmir, Kashmiri Pandits, fled the valley leaving behind their homes and homeland to save themselves from persecution at the behest of Islamic extremists/terrorists.
Around four to five lakh Kashmiri Pandits were displaced due to militancy in Kashmir valley. Every year since that day, Kashmiri Pandits commemorate January 19 as Kashmiri Pandit Holocaust/Exodus Day, hoping to go back to their homes one day.
Terrorism in Kashmir valley started with the ethnic cleansing and genocide of Kashmiri Pandits in 1989-1990. Ethnic cleansing refers to an attempt to create ethnically homogeneous geographic areas through the expulsion or forcible displacement of persons belonging to particular ethnic groups.
United Nations defines ethnic cleansing as rendering an area ethnically homogeneous by using force or intimidation to remove from a given area, persons of another ethnic or religious group.
Displaced Kashmiri Pandit women pray for peace and an early return home at an annual Hindu festival: BBC.
The so-called freedom movement (Azaadi) in Kashmir was joined by many local Kashmiri Muslims (and not all). They opted for guns for the so-called Azaadi which never was attained. The main purpose of terrorism in Kashmir was to create a valley homogenous in its religious (read Islamic) character.
The minority Kashmiri Pandits were forced to leave the valley to create such homogeneity. If the majority community of the valley had not supported the insurgency, there probably wouldn’t have been any exodus of the minority community.
Ethnic cleansing sometimes involves the elimination of all physical vestiges of the targeted group through the obliteration of monuments, cemeteries, and houses of worship.
Death or displacement may also be involved in ethnic cleansing where a population is identified for removal from an area or a region. With the rise of insurgency and Islamic extremism in Kashmir, houses of minority Hindus were burned and temples were destroyed. Also, notices were pasted on the walls of Kashmiri Pandit houses telling them to leave the Kashmir valley or to die. Read full article here>>>
Displaced Kashmiri Pandits seek Modi’s intervention

Special Correspondent | The Hindu |January 19, 2014:: Twenty four years to the day when they were forced to flee from the Valley, a delegation of Kashmiri Pandits submitted a memorandum to BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi in the Capital on Sunday seeking his intervention for their return to their homeland.
Interacting with the delegation, Mr. Modi said it was on January 19, 1990 that Kashmiri Pandits were made to leave their homeland. It was an attack on not only a community but their centuries old tradition, he said. What the displaced Pandits are facing today is not just a fight against injustice meted out to them, but are also fighting for the reinstatement of their lost tradition back in the Valley, he added.
Mr. Modi told the delegation that injustice to Kashmiri Pandits is not only an attack on their rights but an attack on our national ideal of ‘Sarva Pantha Sambhav’.
“No words will ever explain the extent of suffering Kashmiri Pandits experienced. Justice towards the community remains our firm commitment,” he told the delegation.

In the memorandum submitted to Mr. Modi, the community said: “Challenge to the idea of Indian Nation state continues in Kashmir in one or the other form. Extirpation of entire Kashmiri Hindu religious minority is one of its worst manifestations. This religious identity has suffered ignobility and tragedy of exodus in the past as well, but the mass exodus of 1990 is one of the worst scars as it happened in ‘Secular, Democratic and Free India’.”
The delegation said the targeted killing of members of the Hindu Minority community that led to mass exodus has resulted in the change of the demographic profile of the State, yet “no commission was constituted nor was any enquiry ordered into the causes of extirpation and rise of fundamentalist-anti-India insurgency in Kashmir.” Read full article here>>>
