A petition has moved in Canada exposing Pakistan with regards to freedom of religion and describing it as the most intolerant countries in the world.
The petition started by Asif Panhwar from Calgary, Alberta, on December 18, 2017, by Tom Kmiec.
It states that in 1947, Hindus constituted over 27 percent of the population of Sindh, and now they constitute less than 7 percent;
75 percent of Hindus in Pakistan have been coerced to leave their ancestral home and that in recent years, the violence against Sindhi Hindus has increased in ways such as extortion, attacks on places of worship, and forced conversion of Hindu girls to Islam.
20 or more Hindu girls are abducted and forced to convert to Islam every month in Pakistan and that most of the girls are under 16 years old and as young as 11, and, after the forced conversion and marriage, are prohibited from contacting their families.
Therefore, the petition states that the undersigned, citizens or residents of Canada, call upon the House of Commons to pressure the Pakistan government to address this issue through legislation, safeguarding minority rights, and revoking discriminatory laws, and to make Canadian international aid to Pakistan conditional to Pakistan’s adherence to the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Petition is open for signature until April 17, 2018, at 1:41 p.m.
Here is the link to the petition. The link needs to be copied in the browser before it can be signed by the citizens of Canada:
Recently, another girl a Hindu girl Nisha, daughter of Deewan Mal was abducted from Mandir Ghali Pano Aqil a few days ago , but a few days she was brought at Bharchundi and converted to Islam while even as the issue became a worldwide sensation, the Pakistani human rights workers and media gave the case zero hearing. In the light of this recent forced conversion of the Hindu girl, this petition could become a major tool to break this vicious cycle.
