Lahore : Patron-in-chief of Pakistan Hindu Council and Member of National Assembly Dr Ramesh Kumar Vankwani has expressed extreme anger on the kidnapping, forced conversion and wedding of a minor 14 years old Hindu girl, Ravita Meghwar belonging to Tharparkar, Sindh.
Talking to the media, Dr Ramesh Vankwani said that a local peer (religious personality) Ayub Jan Farooqi Sarhindi has issued the certificate of conversion where the age of kidnapped girl is mentioned approximately 18 years. “This ongoing practice should be condemned,” Dr Ramesh said, while adding that for ensuring a peaceful society, it is essential to provide religious freedom to followers of all faiths. He also demanded for early recovery of innocent Hindu girl.
Dr Ramesh said that Sindh is known as land of peace and harmony but unfortunately, peace loving patriot Hindu community is being forced to migrate from their beloved Pakistan. He was of the view that despite passing of the minorities protection act unanimously by the Sindh Assembly, extremist forces were actually behind for not letting become it law. All Hindu people living across the Sindh province demand to the provincial government to prove its commitment towards democracy and peace, he further said.
On the occasion, Dr Ramesh Vankwani also shared copies of the conversion certificate in which it is also advised to keep the kidnapped girl away from kaafirs (non-believers) and friends of kaafirs. He termed such wording highly insulting and demanded to higher authorities for taking action under the blasphemy laws.
