Problems faced by minorities in Pakistan are not a new occurrence. Time and again reports have come up stating that discrimination has been going on with minorities, minorities raped, or forced conversions.

A new addition to this is that now Hindus and Christians have been forced to come on streets in Pakistan as their houses have been demolished.

The Incident

In the Rawalpindi district of Pakistan, Hindus and Christians have been living for the past 70 years, however, the authorities demolished their houses. As per the reports, a total of five houses belonging to Hindus, Christians, and Shias were demolished.

Also, the authorities showed no signs of humanity as they relentlessly threw out their belongings on the streets.

After the demolition took place, the Hindu family took shelter in a temple, while the Christian family and Shia family were forced to live without shelter.

What Do The Victims Say?

According to the sources, before the demolition, the families tried to stay the order by going to court, however, the authorities were adamant and demolished their houses by force.

A Hindu victim shared that no FIR was registered against the authorities as they were powerful. “They are mafias and came in a group of at least 100 people. They even harassed us, attacked us as we tried to counter, they are so powerful that no FIR was registered at the police station,” he said.

He shared that they went to court. Unfortunately, the cantonment board had only one judge, Naveed Akhtar, who took the side of the authorities. He added, “We were having all the papers as we have been living here for over 70 years. They have not given us any notice and no time to save our household goods.”

What Do The Experts Say?

Amjad Ayub Mirza, an expert on Pakistan’s Affairs, talking to ANI said, “Persecution of Hindus and minorities in Pakistan is not something that is new to us. Since the inception of this illegal and fake country that was created in the name of religion by dividing the living body of Hindustan, we have seen persecution of Hindus, Sikhs, Christians and Shins now, and have been at the forefront of Pakistan’s atrocities against its own people.”

Even the United Nations have spoken on the issue of abductions, forced marriages, and conversions of minor girls and young women belonging to minority religious groups in Pakistan.

Yet, these incidents are now “normal” in Pakistan. Even after several world authorities condemned Pakistan’s decision, they haven’t stopped discriminating against minority groups in Pakistan.
