Commenting on the recent influx of Hindus from Pakistan,to India,B N Kutty,a senior Pakistan activist working for strengthening democracy in the country,said ‘sporadic’ attacks on Hindus in Pakistan should not be interpreted as if the entire Hindu community is being targeted.

He was delivering a lecture on ‘The status of minorities in Pakistan’ on Tuesday,organized by Pune chapter of Pakistan India People’s Forum For Peace and Democracy.

“In Pakistan,various sects within the majority community are fighting against each other. The recent influx of Hindus to India should not be interpreted as if the entire community is targeted. There are famous Hindu medical practitioners in cities like Karachi. Few incidents are not representative of the society,” he said.

Kutty said that minority communities are likely to get more representation in Pakistan Parliament in the coming days,in view of the growing demand from the political fraternity.

He said,“The growing demand for political representation to minorities in Pakistan Parliament is supported by a political party. The party has included it in its manifesto also. There are frequent charges of corruption on the government,but the changes brought by the Muslim League and Pakistan People’s Party are going to have a lasting impact in Pakistan. The previous governments were more feudal and against modern thinking”.
