SHAMEFUL! Hindu journalist in Pakistan forced to drink from separate glass in office as Muslims raise objections

Karachi: It's yet another story loudly telling us about the plight of Hindus in Pakistan.

In a shocking incident, a Hindu reporter in Pakistan’s state-run news agency has been barred from drinking water in the same glass and sharing utensils with other Muslim staff at the office.

This all happened after his colleagues found out his religion i.e. Hindu.

The reporter's name is Sahib Khan Oad. He works as a senior reporter with Associated Press of Pakistan (APP)

Oad, who hails from Dadu district, was initially appointed as a reporter in APP Islamabad and was transferred to Hyderabad and then Karachi in April this year.

When did this discriminatory attitude begin?

The discriminatory attitude started soon after Oad's younger son Raj Kumar visited his office and everyone found out that he was Hindu.

What all discrimination he faced?

"Actually my name contains 'Khan' so everyone initially thought I was Muslim," Sahib Khan Oad said. 

"The bureau chief asked me to separate my glass in the office because some colleagues had reservations," Sahib Khan Oad added.
