Pakistani Hindus protest outside Indian embassy in Islamabad
ISLAMABAD: Members of Hindu community from across the country are holding sit-in in front of the Indian High Commission in Islamabad to protest against mysterious death of 11 Pakistani Hindus in Jodhpur, India, in August.
A large number of Hindus, led by MNA and Patron-in-Chief Pakistan Hindu Council Dr Ramesh Kumar, reached Islamabad late last night from Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and various other parts of the country in a caravan.
The participants of the sit-in chanted slogans against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP government. They demanded a transparent inquiry into the tragic incident from the Indian government.
They also called upon the international community to provide them justice.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Ramesh Kumar said India must provide post mortem report and copy of FIR of the incident to Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi immediately.
Earlier, they had been carrying out rallies in Sindh, but this is the first time they have reached Islamabad. They accused Indian secret agencies of poisoning the Pakistani Hindus.
Addressing participants of the rally, Federal Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry said that the Pakistani Hindus’ going to India did not ended their relation with the country. He said the Indian government’s attitude over the incident was questionable. He said the Indian forces wanted them to speak against Pakistan and in favour of the BJP government.
Fawad Chaudhry said that the Indian government should be held accountable over the murders.
“I want to assure the Hindu community that the government stands by you,” he said asking the participants of the protest to end the protest. He said whatever the Hindu community would suggest the government would do the same.
