Minority Rights Violated in Pakistan………………

Minority legislator speaks up on kidnappings, conversions

By Imtiaz Ali (News International, April 9, 2009)

Karachi

Increasing incidents of kidnapping of Hindu community members and “conversion” have caused concern in Sindh. Approximately 30 to 35 minority members had been kidnapped; one of them was killed. Seven are still believed to be in the custody of abductors. Around 18 Hindu girls had been converted to Islam; one of them was reportedly killed this year.

Some say that these incidents should not be seen in isolation and should be viewed as part of the general law and order problem. Similarly, girls have increasingly shown a tendency to marry with their consent.

Others say there is a plot against the minority members who are being targeted for various reasons. Of particular concern is the alleged blasphemy case in Umerkot, which had remained closed for a few days recently following violent protests. Sindh Home Minister Zulfikar Mirza was of the view that there was a conspiracy to grab the property and business of the Hindu community.

These issues were also highlighted during the last days of parliamentary year of the Sindh Assembly by the Pakistan People’s Party-Parliamentarian (PPP-P) minority legislator, Pitanbar Sewani.

Sewani was born in Bagarji, Sukkur, in 1953 and has been associated with the PPP since 1974. Starting from his political career as a member of district council Shikarpur in 1979, he had been elected as a member of the provincial legislature twice. He is among three senior legislators of the minority community. Two others were late P.K Shahani and Rana Chander Singh. One striking aspect of his personality is that he prefers a simple lifestyle. He spoke to The News about these issues.

KIDNAPPINGS: Three Hindus were kidnapped in Salih Pat. The kidnappers demanded Rs1.5 million as ransom. When the relatives sold their property to pay the ransom money, the abductors increased the original amount to Rs2.5 million. As the poor relatives were not in a position to pay the ransom, the abductors killed Mahender Kumar on the Hindus’ religious festival (Holi) recently “as if to present a ‘gift’ to us,” Sewani said. Two were still in their custody.

On the same day on which Kumar was killed, the criminals kidnapped three more Hindus in Ghotki. “The home minister personally visited the area and we hope that they would be recovered,” Sewani said.

The robbers gunned down Dr Darshan Lal in Larkana and snatched Rs2.4 million from him. The police made some arrests in the case but showed only Rs16,000 as recovery from the accused.

In this year, around 30 to 35 Hindus had been kidnapped, out of them seven were still in the custody of criminals. Among them is PPP-P district Jacobabad minority wing President Darshan Lal. Apart from kidnappings, robberies had also been increased, targeting the Hindus. The robbers stormed a temple in Jacobabad and snatched 450 “tolas” gold from 250 women. The police made some arrests but had shown recovery of only 10 to 15 Tolas gold.

Criminals stormed another temple in Daharki and robbed people. In the third incident, robbers stormed a temple in Ghotki and robbed people. However, the then district police officer (DPO) Irfan Baloch made arrests and recovered each and everything, which was appreciable. This is first time that the religious places had been robbed.

The minority community’s houses have also been looted. The robbers entered Natho Mal’s house in Sakrand city and took away Rs1.4 million. The police made arrests but had shown recovery of Rs500,000 to Rs600,000 only. In Shikarpur, a Panchayat leader’s (Mukhi) house was looted.

RELIGIOUS CONVERSION: Around 18 Hindu girls had been kidnapped and “converted” this year. Some of the events might be the result of love affairS. “We do not have objections over their becoming Muslims but we have objections over the method through which they had been ‘converted’,” Sewani said.

“First they kidnap the girl, marry her and subsequently she is presented before the court. We demand that first, the girl should be kept at a ‘neutral place’ then it should be decided as to whether she had been converted. How we would be convinced that she had not been converted under duress as there are incidents that girls were kidnapped for ulterior motives. One Hindu girl who was reportedly converted and married in Sukkur, was thrown from the third floor of the building on Eid-ul-Azha day and died. Her husband was arrested but later released on bail,” he said.

PLOT: The Hindu community in Pakistan was first targeted in 1972-73 when their women were insulted in Kandhkot under a conspiracy. It inspired Amar Jalil to write a short story on it. Subsequently, a pattern was set that whenever the PPP comes in power, the minority members are targeted as it is the only party, which strives to improve the condition of minorities and empower them, Sewani said. Certain elements want the government in Sindh to fail, and they target Hindus who are loyal to the party, he maintained.

When the PPP came in power in 1988, around 19 Hindus were killed in Karachi and their property was looted. When the PPP assumed power in 2008, Jagdesh, a factory worker was killed over alleged blasphemy. Hindus were targeted on their religious festival (Holi) in Umerkot and the home minister on the Sindh Assembly floor said there was conspiracy against the minority.

PAKISTANI PERSECUTION MEANS MURDER OF HINDUS
Mgr Saldanha slams murder of Hindu, killed for alleged blasphemy
by Qaiser Felix

Jagdeesh Kumar was a young Hindu man who was killed by his Muslim co-workers. Like in cases involving Christian victims, blasphemy charges such as these conceal the persistent violation of religious minority rights.

Karachi (AsiaNews, 04/09/2008 From Archive) – Sentenced to death by his Muslim co-workers, 22-year-old Jagdeesh Kumar was beaten for almost half an hour and left to die in the leather factory where he worked. Charging him with blasphemy the workers arbitrarily enforced the country’s infamous law which imposes the death penalty for anyone guilty of defiling or blaspheming against Islam and the prophet Muhammad.

Mgr John Saldanha, archbishop of Lahore and chairman of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Pakistan and of its National Commission for Justice and Peace, harshly slammed the killing.

“Changes to the blasphemy law to prevent abuses have not improved ordinary people’s lives; they are still victims of people led by emotions and instincts who take the law into their own hands,” he said. “The government should heed demands from the population for the law to be scrapped.”

The archbishop said that killing someone without solid evidence and without a trial is clearly an irresponsible act. He urges the authorities to investigate this case.

“Incidents such as this in which people take the law into their own hands, meting out justice to alleged offenders, are shocking and upsetting,” Monsignor Saldanha said.

This case must become a test for the new government to show that “laws are applied and that all citizens are considered equal before the law.”

Police arrived on the scene after the incident and confirmed that Jagdeesh’s alleged blasphemous statements provoked his co-workers into beating him to death.

But the blasphemy accusations have not convinced the family who believe that religion had nothing to do with it. For them it is just a personal vendetta.

Jagdeesh’s brother-in-law Raju said that “he was a simple young man and knew little about religion. We came to Karachi to earn a living, not to take part in religious disputes. It is very easy to kill a member of a minority and then accuse him of blasphemy. This is why we want the inquiry to go ahead.”

In Pakistan blasphemy is punishable by the death, but no one has officially been sentenced. However, some 30 people have been the victims of illegal summary justice, even in police custody.

The places of worship of religious minorities and the homes of their members have often come under attack.

In Pakistan Hindus are minority representing 1.6 per cent of the population of this Muslim nation of about 160 million people.

    Do you want me to post the picture of Gujarat riots on muslims in India, Assam riots on Christians and sikh riots??

    • alertpak Says:

      If the pictures of Gujrat riots on Muslims, Assam riots upon Christians ( Where from you have collected this great Story ?) are more horrible than any beheadment, Shooting game at point blank or hanging in tree or lamp post by Talibani Pakistanis, you can send the same.

      Gujrat riot was the reaction of Godhra carnage of Hindu Activists by Muslims. Who set fire in the train to burn alive Hindus by petrol ? What is the reality of pampered case of Best Bakery ? The Muslim poster boys of Gujrat riots are now doing their business and maintaining their peaceful life in Gujrat. Always try to propagate the false story of persecution upon Muslims in India. Jinnah and Goebbels are our fathers. We have to cut another part of India from the map of India to creat a New Pakistan. Muslims of Pakistan and India are united for this cause. Inshallah.

    Insecure in Pakistan
    15 Mar 2009, 0230 hrs IST, Divya A, TNN

    It is not quite the Partition and the Great Migration. But the steady trickle of Hindus crossing into India from Pakistan, and pleading for permission to stay here, underlines how little has changed in 61 years. The immediate provocation was the alleged persecution of Hindus at the hands of the Taliban. But social alienation too has taken its toll. More than 6,000 Pakistani Hindus migrated to India in recent months. They live on the edge – many sans valid documents, an official identity and hope – in Punjab, Haryana and Rajasthan.

    Lashkar Das, who left Pakistan’s Punjab province to settle in Haryana’s Rohtak district in 2005, claims he was constantly under pressure to convert to Islam. “Some families budged under pressure, but those who didn’t, became targets. We had no option but to come here.”

    Shankar Lal, now in Fatehabad, Haryana, knows all about becoming a target. He claims he fled Punjab and perennial harassment in 2000. “Local residents used to call us Hindus kafirs. No one allowed us to even sit with them. Our children were discriminated in schools and forced to read namaz,” he says. When his grandfather, Dharuram from Rohtak, visited Lal some years ago, he suggested they move to India. He did.

    Today, he can proudly produce a valid Indian ration card and admit to being a registered voter. “Despite scarce resources, we managed to make do as daily-wagers and send our children to schools here.” Eventually, he married a girl from Karnal. Ever since, life has settled in a peaceful groove.

    He isn’t the only one. The year Lal crossed over, six Hindu families left Pakistan for Fatehabad and Rohtak in Haryana. Since then, 56 members from these families have become bonafide residents with valid documents.

    Nearer the Pakistan border, Rajasthan too has a population of Hindu migrants. More than 50 families have made Jodhpur their home. They claim they were discriminated against, not least the trouble with getting a loan to start a business. They say they often had no option but to borrow from moneylenders, but their terms were so harsh, the creditor could abandon all hope of ever being free of debt. Prem, who once owned two “fancy stores” in Sindh, now lives in Jodhpur with his family of nine. He’s a scrap collector and admits “we work as daily wage-earners” but hopes “life will be a bit better in India”.

    But, once here, India may not always be quite the promised land they imagined. Lakshman, a 40-year-old labourer left Punjab eight years ago to protect the women in his family, after his cousin was kidnapped, never to return. But he admits to facing suspicion here too. “There, we were considered Mujahirs and here, people think we are Pakistanis. The only respite is we aren’t living in constant fear about our life.”

    Fear is the constant refrain in the migrants’ stories. In October, four Peshawar families claimed Muslim radicals terrorized them into leaving home. Crossing through Wagah, they arrived in Delhi to register with the Home Ministry’s Pakistani refugee cell. They sought Indian citizenship, received a year’s visa and are settled in a village near Amritsar.

    But these are the legal and identifiable ones. Police say most Pakistani refugees lack valid documents. “Off and on, Hindus from Pakistan have been trickling to India through our porous borders. Some stay here even after their visas expire. But we haven’t initiated any legal action as they don’t pose a security threat,” says an officer with the Amritsar border range. “Between 2003-04, when each Indian state had the power to decide on such cases, close to 13,000 people got citizenship. But the revised immigration fee, between Rs 3,000 to Rs 20,000, is beyond the reach of many, forcing them to live in hiding.”

    Such families are helped by organizations such as the All India Hindu Shiv Sena, whose president, Surinder Kumar Billa, admits “collecting funds for them and arranging Hindi and Punjabi language classes for the Urdu-speaking children so they can join school soon.”

    Chetan Das of Seemant Lok Sangathan, which helps with rehabilitation work, puts the Hindu refugee story in context – the poor, he says, can afford to migrate to India as they have no stake in society, but the better off simply pay ‘protection money’ to the Pakistani authorities.

    Please try to creat a situation in India as pre 1947 so that a direct action against against Hindus may occur again by the blessings of Jinnah. No Ambedkar, Patel or Shayamaprasd are alive to resist the new partition of India. All the parties in India viz. Congress, CPM, CPI , BSP, SP, NCP are pro muslim and they will support us. Damn BJP……..the Party of Kaffirs.

    it is disgusting that to know that islam is such a religion who preaches hatred for others
    Naturally all muslims were Hindus before, have now turned man eaters for present Hindus.This is the law of islam
    This islam has been main advocate of blood bath for last 1500 years
    let us pray it perishes to save the earth.

  5. Valmik Says:

    Come & see in India how Pakistanis like Deelip Kumar,Fat Singer & husband of Zeba Bakhtiar Mr. Adnan Sami lives in India
    Come & see how Indian Hindus donate Muslims to go to haj thru government aid
    Come & see how uniform civil code is not appled to muslims
    Come & see how 20 odd croes muslim stay in India
    Come & see How Bangaldeshis , Pakistanis wish & come to India to settle in India
    But it is not ault of either pakistan or Bangladesh, it is problem with Islam
    Iranian, Iraqi , Saudi, Malasian, Kuwati muslim never hates Hindus
    But Pakistani, & Bangladeshi do. They do not digest progress made by Indian Hindus. It is Islam who turns a brother man eater aftrer his own brother after conversion
