Jaisalmer, June 12, 2016: A Pak Hindu comes to India with the hopes of escaping persecution but in this rare incidence the relief was found to be short-lived as the anti-social elements decided to burn down the dreams of freedom one more time.
A Times of India report has stated that anti-social elements unhappy with the Pak Hindu community living on the land allotted to them by the government burnt down their huts to force them out.
However, the anti-social elements were in for a shock as the Pak Hindu community was quickly allowed to meet with the collector and also submitted a memorandum demanding action against the culprits.
The Pak Hindu community also took out a protest march and have said in the memorandum, that they were safely living in the houses allocated to them by the government at Mohangarh, which is 60 km away from Jaisalmer when some anti-social elements tried to force them out by setting fire to their huts/dwellings.
The administration has vowed to take swift action in the case as the ruling party, BJP, has made the human rights of migrant Pak Hindus a major issue in the state.
Rajasthan is one of the most logical choice for Pakistani Hindus as they have historical ties with the city and the language of rural Sindh is very similar to the dialect that is spoken here.
This is the first time when such a crime has been reported against the Pak Hindu community who is largely considered a friendly, hard-working and kind one.
India’s Narendra Modi government has made rules easier keeping in mind the persecution of Pakistani Hindus in their home country and have also included the Pakistani Christians, Sikhs and other minorities in this too.
