She added the government was aware of reports of problems faced by members of minority communities, including Hindus, and had taken up the matter with Pakistan in the past.

The Pakistan government, she said, was fully cognizant of the situation and claimed to be looking after the welfare of all its citizens, particularly the minority community.

“Many Hindus are facing problems in Pakistan as the authorities are not issuing marriage certificates to them there and their plight is bad,” he said.

      Mrs Swaraj, Do not you think it is internal matter of stan. If India get involved in it politically, stan will start interfering politically as well that India is not treating minorities well. At least till now stan supports terrorism only. if minorities have any problem in stan, UN should get involved not India. Hindus in stan decided to stay there and if they want to come out of stan, try to get nationality of other countries.

        Indian Sikulars will never speak for the suffering and oppression of HIndus, be it in Pkistan, Bangladesh or inside India. These sikulars are busy to protect and promote Jihadi terrorirsts.
