Pak Hindu migrants demands refugee status

Pakistani Hindu migrants, staying in Jodhpur, today made a fresh demand to the Centre that they should be given refugee status.



Jodhpur (Raj): Pakistani Hindu migrants, staying in Jodhpur, today made a fresh demand to the Centre that they should be given refugee status.
"The issue (of granting refugee status) has not been taken up with all seriousness by the government till now," said Hindu Singh Sodha, president of Seemant Lok Sangthan, an organisation working for their rights.

According to an estimate, around 300 Hindus have migrated to Jodhpur from Pakistan last year and are staying in the city.

"It is high time to raise the issue on international platforms," Sodha said.
