Pak minorities demand new laws for protection, stopping forced conversion

Islamabad, Fri, 16 Mar 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Mar 16(ANI): Pakistan's minority legislators have called on the government to devise a proper legislation for their protection and urged to halt their forced conversion to Islam.


The legislators said that forced conversions are prohibited in Islam.


Pakistan People's Party (PPP) legislator Lal Chand told the House that injustices were carried out against minority communities, The Daily Times reports.


He highlighted the incident where four Hindu women were kidnapped and had reportedly changed their religion and accepted Islam.


Chand informed the House that a gang of about 500 armed people kidnapped them at gunpoint and later forced to change their religion.


He said teenage girls who did not know about teachings of Islam could not convert on their own.


Pakistan Muslim League- Nawaz (PML-N) member Araish Kumar said that forced conversions of members of minority communities were rising.


Another minority parliamentarian, Ramesh Lal regretted that local police and administration officials fully supported the minorities' forced conversions to Islam.


A PPP member, Mahesh Kumar said that Islam did not allow forced conversions and urged the legislators to move proper legislation on the issue, adding that the Hindu community in Sindh felt insecure. (ANI)
