Hindus and other minorities in Pakistan are not well-treated. They are forced to undergo subjugation and mortification of the worst kind.
Last year, another Hindu girl Nimrita was forcibly converted to Islam and later murdered.

A US-based Sindhi foundation had said that, on an average, every year, around 1,000 young Sindhi Hindu girls between the age of 12 and 28 are abducted, forcibly married and converted to Islam.
In the year 2011, around 1200 Hindus escaped from the suffocating clutches of the tyrant-like Pakistan and escaped to India. The BBC reported that they were religiously persecuted and were treated like second-class citizens. For their children, education was nothing but a chimera and even if they went to school, their peers would make fun of their religion, that is Hinduism, mock its practices and mortify them to the core.

Many Hindus have rushed to India, unable to bear the persecution. Many of them are forced to give away their money, disallowed to open shops. And even if they do, many zealots come there and extort money from them.
This inhumane treatment of our Hindu brothers and sisters is living commentary on gross human rights violations.
