    Forced conversion of Hindus in Pakistan jolts US out of slumber

    Story here.

    WASHINGTON: Pakistan's state-endorsed discrimination, and in some cases extermination, of its minorities has finally caught the eye of Washington lawmakers.

    Coming on the heels of support in Congress for a Baloch homeland in the face of Islamabad's depredations in the region, a US Congressman has zeroed in on the abduction and forced religious conversion of Hindus in the country highlighted by the case of Rinkel Kumari .

    In a sharply-worded letter to Pakistan's president Asif Ali Zardari, Congressman Brad Sherman urged him to take action to ensure the return of Rinkel Kumari to her family, pursuant to reports that she had been abducted with the help of a Pakistan People's Party (PPP) lawmaker.

    In a case that has been widely reported in the liberal Pakistani media, Rinkel , who was abducted on February 24, was forced to marry one Naveed Shah and convert to Islam .

    She was subsequently produced before a civil judge twice ,but she was reportedly coerced into claiming that she had converted on her own will, even as her family was denied access to her in kangaroo court proceedings that revealed in video clips to be led by a frenzied mob of zealots , including armed followers of the Pakistani lawmaker .

    According to Pakistani civil liberties activists in Washington, Rinkel was allegedly threatened while in police custody that if she did not change her statement, she and her family would be killed.

    "Rinkel's case is just one case of abduction and forced religious conversion in Pakistan," Sherman said in the letter to Zardari, citing the Asian Human Rights commission figure of 20-25 kidnappings and forced conversions of Hindu girls in Sindh every month.

    The Rinkel Kumari case was brought to the attention of US lawmakers not by Hindu activists but by the Sindhi American Political Action Committee (SAPAC ), a lobby group that , like the Baloch groups , is increasingly asserting the secular and syncretic identity of Pakistan's Sindhi community in the face of growing Islamization in the country .

    Sapac activists are telling US lawmakers that state sponsored discrimination against minority groups in Pakistan is rampant and is causing Hindus to migrate out of Pakistan in droves.
    Two thoughts.

    (1)There is nothing new here. This is the modus-operandi of Mohammedans since the time of Mo back in the 8th century Arabian desert.

    (2)When will stupid INDIAN politicians develop spine to address this and other issues?

    Never, since with each passing day the minority vote bank is getting more and more important as minorities or muslims are not going down numerically but up.

    So soaps for muslims can only go up in future. Naive idiot tv presenters were proudly proclaiming that muslims during UP elections did not buy the exuberent promises made by congress - overlooking the fact that they voted SP which outbid the congress in terms of soaps to muslims.

    India will not get any better, not just in terms of minority appeasement, and sometimes I feel stupid not to have emigrated out of this country.
    What is Here, is Elsewhere. What is not Here, is Nowhere.

    No country in the world is safe to Islam, this Islam is destroying everything. Indian secular politicians want votes and Hindus are badly devided.

    No wonder these are Hindus themselves who are helping Muslims in India, thus creating serious troubles for India.

    Hindus needs another Shivaji, another Surajmal, another Mihirbhoj, another Karikal, another Maharana Pratap, another Prithviraj Chauhan, another Dahir, another Jaypal.

    Re: Forced conversion of Hindus in Pakistan jolts US out of slumber

    Zardari's intervention sought against forcible conversions

    Washington, Mar 14, 2012, (PTI)
    A US lawmaker has written to Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari asking him to look into the matter of the ''forcible conversion'' of a Hindu girl and ensure her safe return to her family.

    In a strongly-worded letter, dated March 12, Brad Sherman, a lawmaker from California urged Zardari to take steps to ensure that those responsible for such acts are held accountable.

    "I urge you to take action to ensure the safe return of this girl to her family," Sherman said in his letter to Zardari, referring to the case of a Hindu girl named Rinkel Kumari, who was allegedly abducted from her home in Mirpur Mathelo, in the Sindh province of Pakistan.

    Sherman said Rinkel's family has alleged that she abducted on February 24, forced to marry a Muslim man named Naveed Shah and convert to Islam.

    "Rinkel was reportedly held in custody with the help of Mian Mohammad Aslam, the son of Pakistan People's Party Member of National Assembly Mian Mitho in Bharchundi Shareef, where she was forced to marry a Muslim man and convert to Islam," he said in the letter.

    On February 25, Rinkel was brought before a civil judge, who ruled in favour of Naveed Shah and she was taken into custody for two days at Sukkur police station, the Congressman said.

    "Rinkel was allegedly threatened with violence while in police custody to make her change her statement," he claimed.

    He said on February 27, Rinkel appeared in court again and this time her relatives were reportedly not allowed inside the court. During this second hearing, Rinkel was returned to Naveed Shah's custody.

    "Rinkel's family is unaware of the whereabouts of their daughter," Sherman said in his letter.

    "Unfortunately Rinkel Kumari's case is just one case of abduction and forced religious conversion in Pakistan. According to the Asian Human Rights Commission (AHRC), around 20-25 forced kidnappings and conversions of Hindu girls in Sindh every month.

    "I urge you to take all necessary steps to bring an end to this practice and other harassment of Hindus in Pakistan," Sherman said.

    Rinkle has reportedly told a court that she voluntarily converted and married a Muslim man.

    Sherman's letter comes in the wake of the campaign by the Sindhi American Political Action Committee, a lobby group for the Sindhi community in the US.

    Did you know that precisely today Sri Sri is in Pakistan delivering lectures to packed audiences - students, political leaders, clerics. Maybe he should use his status to make some comments.

    Hindu girls are forced to marry Muslims

    More depressing news here.

    ISLAMABAD: Acknowledging that Hindus face a lot of challenges in Sindh, sister of Pakistan president Asif Ali Zardari said in Pakistan's parliament on Thursday that Hindu girls are being forcibly kept in madrassas in the province and are forced to marry Muslims.

    The remarks by Azra Fazal Pechuho, a lawmaker of the ruling Pakistan People's Party, came against the backdrop of the Pakistan supreme court's recent directive to authorities to produce three Hindu women who were allegedly kidnapped in Sindh.

    Two of the women - Rinkle Kumari and Lata Kumari - have told magistrates they voluntarily converted.

    Speaking in the National Assembly or lower house of parliament on the issue of Rinkle Kumari, Pechuho said Hindus faced a lot of challenges in Sindh.

    She stressed the need for laws to protect the rights of minority communities and to end forced conversions.

    Nafeesa Shah, another lawmaker from Sindh, endorsed Pechuho's stand and said parliament should introduce legislation on forced conversions.
    How come the Mohammedan sense of propriety erupts into violence when a Quran is improperly disposed but the Mohammedan finds it perfectly okay to abduct and forcefully convert Hindu women?

    Where are all the elite media folks on this issue and why isnt this on the news 24x7? Where are prominent Indian Mohammedans on this issue and why are they silent?

    Is there no humanity left in the Mohammedan, Indian, Pakistani or otherwise?

    Hindus terrified by forced conversions to Islam in BalochistanSource :

    Last Updated: Mon, Mar 19, 2012 17:49 hrs
    Islamabad: Forced conversions to Islam and increasing incidents of kidnapping have instilled fear among Hindus in Balochistan, Pakistan's Minister for Human Rights and Minority Affairs Basant Lal Gulshan has said.
    Reports suggest that as many as four girls and three boys of the Hindu community forcibly converted to Islam in 2011.
    "At least 50 Hindu families have migrated from Quetta alone. The families migrated to rural Balochistan and Sindh because their rights were not safeguarded in Quetta," The Express Tribune quoted Gulshan, as saying.
    He also claimed that investigations have not begun on the conversion cases reported in Loralai, Chaman and Sibi.
    Criticising the Baloch Government for ignoring minority rights, Gulshan said: "I took up the issue with Chief Minister Aslam Raisani and also discussed it on the provincial assembly floor, but they are not serious in addressing the grievances of minorities."

    He further said at least 25 people of his community have been kidnapped for ransom this year, adding: "There were 55 cases last year and we are witnessing a sharp rise this year."
    Dr Rajesh Kumar, a pharmacist, was kidnapped in broad daylight from outside the Bolan Medical College Complex in Quetta approximately one and half months ago. His whereabouts are still unknown.
    According to a rough estimate, around 200,000 Hindus reside in different parts of Balochistan and most of them are either businessmen or traders. "Criminals consider Hindus an easy target for earning money."
    Gulshan assured that as a member of the provincial cabinet, he will continue to raise his voice for his community, regardless of his reservations being ignored

    This is the nature of the material world - bad things happen all the time. We must not complain like worldly people.
