‘Injustice’ to Hindus being taken up with Pak: Krishna

Govt said that reports of “persecution and intimidation” of Hindus in Pakistan are being taken up “appropriately”.

The government on Wednesday informed the Lok Sabha that reports of “persecution and intimidation” of Hindus in Pakistan are being taken up “appropriately” with the neighbouring country.

“This issue is a matter of concern…and is being taken up appropriately with the Government of Pakistan,” External Affairs Minister S M Krishna said,referring to three recent incidents in Sindh province where three Hindu girls were reportedly abducted and married against their will to Muslim men and converted to Islam.

“It is the responsibility of the Government of Pakistan to discharge its constitutional obligations towards its citizens,including those from the minority community,” Krishna said. His statement came in the wake of senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi raising the issue in the Lok Sabha last week.
