Worsening law and order driving out Hindus from Sindh: Legislator
Islamabad: A Hindu legislator has cautioned the new Pakistani Government that forced marriages, worsening law and order and rampant poverty are driving Hindus away from Sindh.
Dr Mahesh Malani, the only non-Muslim Politician who was elected to the Sindh Assembly from PS-61 (Tharparkar), warned the government against a possible exodus of his community members from the country.
Malani claimed that discrimination against Hindus, the country`s largest minority group, was forcing his community members to migrate to `safer places`.
Dr Malani, who contested the May 11 elections on the PPPP ticket, said the increasing sense of insecurity among community was caused by issues like forced conversion of Hindu girls to Islam.
According to Express Tribune, the Hindu legislator, who has been pushing for a proposed law seeking registration of Hindu marriages since 2008, said the government should form committees at the district level to deal with such cases immediately.
Since September 2012, nearly 1,000 Hindu families have been struggling to migrate to India.
