Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) chief Nawaz Sharif have urged the Hindu community not to leave the country,and criticized the government for ignoring the minorities in Sindh.

Sharif said the country belongs to the minorities as much as it belongs to the Muslims.

According to the Express Tribune,extending support to them,Sharif also said that Pakistan is incomplete without the people belonging to other religions.

Meanwhile,Sindh”s Minister for Minorities,Dr. Mohan Lal,recently rejected reports suggesting that Hindus from the province were migrating to India because of the poor law and order situation in the province.

Lal said the reports were just a propaganda aimed at maligning the Pakistan Peoples Party ( PPP) government.

He said over 4 million Hindus were living in Sindh,who consider Pakistan as their motherland.

Lal said it was a routine matter of Hindus visiting India for pilgrimage or to meet their relatives. The Hindus from Sindh,especially Jacobabad,Kashmore ,Shikarpur,Larkana and Sukkur visit India every year for pilgrimage,he added.
