Hindus, Christians in Pakistan say extremist Muslims are forcing them to change faiths.

LAHORE, Pakistan – It was barely 4 a.m. when 19-year-old Rinkal Kumari disappeared from her home in a small village in Pakistan’s southern Sindh province. When her parents awoke, they found only her slippers and a scarf outside the door.

A few hours later her father got a call telling him that his daughter, a Hindu, had converted to Islam to marry a Muslim boy.

Only days later, Seema Bibi, a Christian woman in the province of Punjab, was kidnapped along with her four children after her husband couldn’t repay a loan to a large landlord. Within hours, her husband was told his wife had converted to Islam and wouldn’t be coming home. Seema Bibi escaped, fled the village, and has gone underground with her husband and children.

  1. “You are free; you are free to go to your temples, you are free to go to your mosques or to any other place of worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion or caste or creed that has nothing to do with the business of the State”said by the founder of Pakistan, Quaid-E-Azam, Muhammad Ali Jinnah on 11th August 1948 in his address to the Fist constitution Assembly . Jinnah was against the theocracy.But now practically Theocratic mind is ruling Pakistan.So all the minorities and even minor sects in Islam are feeling and facing fears of conversion.
    Qur’an clearly says ” No completion in Religion ” ( La Ikrah Fi Din ). But Mullah-ism or Theocracy have its own rules and even have no rule. They are in state of denial and are going to deny all the rules and regulations of Islam.
    Now-a-days Pakistan is reflection a picture of Jungle and the Jungle Law is prevailing there i,e Might is Right.
