Discrimination against Hindus living in Pakistan has been increasing constantly over a period of time. They have been persecuted with tacit support of law enforcing agencies.

In 2014, from January to June, a series of attacks on Hindu temples in Sindh, Pakistan were reported.  In November, the incidents of dozens of forced conversion of Hindu girls came into light.  Undoubtedly, Pakistan has proved  to be a living hell for the Hindus, who preferred to live in Jinnah's country at the time of partition.

“At the time of Partition in 1947, the Hindu community in what is now Pakistan was approximately 15% of the population (the Western half of the country, not including Bangladesh, or the former East Pakistan). By 1998, it was only 1.6%,” says a report titled "Hindus in South Asia & the Diaspora: A Survey of Human Rights, 2013" by the Hindu American Foundation (HAF)

Although Sindh is claimed to be the land of peace, pluralism, harmony, and Sufism;  in  reality  extremism has deeply penetrated the area.  

If you happen to be a human being with sensitivity still alive, this spine-chilling account of a Hindu living in Pakistan will come to you as a real shocker:

Read the dreadful account of adversities that he faced in Pakistan:

“I am a Hindu, used to live in mithi, (sindh - Pakistan), probably the only town in Pakistan with Hindu majority.

It was 2005, My neighbor (my best Muslim friends) had their daughter's wedding some time in December. Knowing the pitiful condition of non-Islamic people in Pakistan I decided against taking my kids to the function, I myself wouldn't have gone had it not been for their special request.

I along with my wife went to the party, being the outcast no-one really bothered talking to us, we saw their ritual being performed, gave gifts to bride and groom, after having  our dinner we decided to get back early, kids had their exams next day.”

I was attacked because of my religion (Hinduism)
