Plight of Hindus in Pak, Malaysia worrisome: BJP

Alleging violation of human rights of Hindus in Pakistan and Malaysia, the BJP on Sunday sought intervention of the President and the Prime Minister in the matter.

Talking to reporters here, BJP’s Human Rights cell in-charge Avinash Rai Khanna alleged the plight of Hindus in both the countries was worrisome.

” Girls belonging to the Hindu community in Pakistan are being forced to convert,” he said alleging they were also being subjected to sexual assaults.

“Even courts in Pakistan are not helping the Hindu community,” Khanna said.

On the plight of Hindus in Malaysia, he alleged around 4.5 lakh Hindus in the country were “stateless” as they had not been provided birth certificates by the government there.

Khanna sought intervention of President Pratibha Patil and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh into what, he alleged, violation of human rights concerning Hindus in Pakistan and Malaysia.

The BJP’s cell had also taken up the matter with the respective governments, Khanna said.
