Rajasthan,Indo-Pak/Pakistan,Religion, Sat, 07 Apr 2012 IANS

Jaipur, April 7 (IANS) A voluntary group working for Pakistani refugees in India has requested Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to raise the problems of Hindus living in Pakistan with visiting President Asif Ali Zardari who is coming to India Sunday, a representative said.


The Seemant Lok Sangathan (SLS) Saturday submitted a memorandum to the prime minister's office and drew attention to the alleged religious persecution of Hindus in Pakistan.



'Till date, this migration is continuing, in spite of the fencing of the whole border since the 1990s. These people are coming to India with valid documents like passport and visa. After coming to India, they apply for the residential permission to stay in India,' Hindu Singh Sodha, president, Seemant Lok Sangathan, told IANS.



Most of them had settled in Rajasthan, Gujarat, Delhi, Haryana, Punjab and Madhya Pradesh.



'These people have requested the Indian government that due to religious persecution in Pakistan, they do not want to go back,' said Sodha.



He also requested Zardari to look into these issues seriously.



Zardari will be on a six-hour visit to the national capital and Ajmer's revered shrine of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti Sunday.
