Hindus in Pak rally against increasing kidnappings for ransom

Islamabad, Sat, 24 Dec 2011 ANI

Islamabad, Dec 24 (ANI): The Hindu community in Pakistan staged a protest outside the assembly in Balochistan province, Quetta city, against unabated incidents of kidnappings for ransom.


The protestors took out a procession from Arya Samaj temple and marched through different parts of the city to express their anger against the recent killing of a Hindu trader Ravi Kumar.


The community demanded that the authorities concerned must resign, saying they are unable to provide security to the Hindus, The Daily Times reports.


Hindu leaders Raday Sham and Dr Mhar Chand while addressing the protesters, said Hindu community have been residing in Balochistan for the past many centuries and had been targeted for the past couple of years.


They pointed out that the killings are a clear message that Hindus must pay money to criminals if they want to live in the city.


"They said it is a conspiracy to force the Hindu community to migrate from Balochistan. We shall give a clear message to those elements that we are the indigenous people of this region. We will not leave this land at any cost," they added.


Provincial Ministers Zamaruk Khan Achakzai and Basant Lal Gulshan came to the protesters, and assured the Hindu community of proper help, saying that they "will raise the voice of the community on the assembly floor." (ANI)
