Protest to the Pakistan Government

via Press Release by Hindu Human Rights published on November 21, 2005

Hindu Human Rights to Protest on Sunday 18 December 2005 to the Pakistan Government for Human Rights Abuses upon the Hindu Minority.


 


The recent upsurge in the kidnappings of Hindu women and girls in Pakistan has raised deep concerns about the rights and future of the Hindu minority in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Reports suggest that Murders and lootings of Hindus have also been on the increase in Pakistan. Numerous Hindu temples have been vandalised or destroyed in the last few years.


 


The small Hindu minority lives in constant fear of persecution and harassment in Pakistan. Yet the authorities have failed in every case to take action against known criminals and have yet to lift a finger to help find


those Hindus who are still missing. Indeed, the constitution and legal system of the country openly discriminates against the Hindu minority.


 


Enough is enough and it is time for all civilised people to stand up and let their voices be heard in a protest to the Pakistani authorities.


 


Before independence from colonial rule, in 1947, Hindus made up approximately 25% of the population of what became Pakistan. Even after the Partition of the Indian Sub-continent, Hindus were still a 15% minority in that region. Today, repeated genocide and ethnic cleansing has forced the number of Hindus down to below 2% of the population – however this represents more than 5 times the number of Hindus living here in the UK.


 


Join us to protest against the ongoing Human Rights abuses against the Hindu minority in Pakistan on Sunday 18 December 2005 from 12 pm onwards outside the Pakistan High Commission, 34-36 Lowndes Square, London.
