In an exclusive chat with MyNation, Dharamveer Solanki, a minority Hindu from Pakistan staying at a refugee camp in Delhi, poured out his woes in relation to the subjugation he was meted out
Bengaluru: Subjugation. Humiliation. Harassment. Intimidation. These are just a few words that germanely sum up the absolute inimicality that minority Hindus in Pakistan faced.
MyNation caught up with one such Hindu, who fortunately escaped from the disdainful clutches of the tyrant nation and managed to eke out a graceful living in the national capital of India, New Delhi.
Meet Dharamveer Solanki. He spoke to our portal in an exclusive chat.
He considers himself very lucky and elevates the Indian Prime Minster Narendra Modi to the status of God. All because, he adds, Narendra Modi had the courage and the political will to pass the Citizenship Amendment Bill (CAB) which now is a law and grants citizenship to the persecuted Hindu minorities in Pakistan.
In the year 2013, he came to India from Hyderabad in Sindh where he was a farmer. He used to work as a farmer in his land, but his land was usurped by the state.
As if adding more insult to injury, he was made to work as a labourer in his own land.
Islamic education was being taught
Apart from being tormented, minors of the minority Hindu families were also being targeted. They were not being imparted quality education. But they were being prevailed upon to learn Islam.
Lands were usurped
He adds that that lands they owned in Pakistan were usurped at least 30-40 years ago. Though they stayed there, they were relegated to the status of second-class citizens. During Pervez Musharraf’s tenure, they were also disenfranchised.
Later, though the voting rights were restored, they continued to face persecution in the name of religion.
However, he managed to escape from Pakistan with the help of a visa to Haridwar. Since then, he has been put up in a refugee camp in Delhi. Staying in that camp, he has been taking care of his family.
