Loyal Hindus of Pakistan

If it is the matter of loyalty, Pakistani Hindus are as loyal as other Pakistani citizen. Often many Hindus prove to be more loyal than their Muslim counterparts who have links withIndia. It would not be an over exaggeration that Hindus have reason to maintain links with India because their holy places are located in India, which are, of course, sacred to Hindus all over the world. If a Muslim feels spiritually charged after paying homage to holy places why Hindus are being treated as from a different world. In Pakistan the minorities have full freedom and there had never been any question or restriction in the past. However, the fact cannot be ignored that India never accepted Pakistan from inner core of her heart and is trying her level best to disintegrate Pakistan so that the country can be annexed to the Indian union. Those who participated in the struggle for independence before partition only know how difficult it was to achieve Pakistan. In fact, India considers that creation ofPakistan encouraged several separatist movements in different Indian states and in casePakistan is disintegrated, separatist movement would automatically die down.

In a recent incident of concern, a Jatha of 250 Pakistani Hindus from Jacobabad applied for Indian visa to pay pilgrimage at holy places in India. Islamabad was suspicious that Indiawould not allow them to return back after their completion of pilgrimage. In the same regard, Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik termed it as conspiracy againstPakistan and said that minorities could not leave the country without the permission of the Interior Ministry. The Minister publicly announced that he would not let the Hindus proceed beyond Jacobabad unless he was satisfied they would not take asylum in India. It is pertinent to mention here that these Hindu families were only visiting India for pilgrimage and to see their families there but there seems misunderstanding as if these Hindus were migrating from Jacobabad to India. In the latest development, Islamabad has demanded from the Indian High Commission (IHC), Islamabad to justify the reasons for issuing 250 visas. The issue was resolved after assurance from the Hindu Jatha that they would positively return to Pakistan.

Suspicion from Pakistan was undesired but natural due propaganda against Pakistan by Indian agencies that Hindus from Pakistan are seeking asylum in India due to religious persecution. In fact, the embarrassing situation was created after media reports that the Hindus had no plans to return from India on the ground that their shops and houses were raided and their daughters converted to Islam. It is on record that India media internationally blamed Pakistan for violating rights of Hindu minority. A media report claimed that seven Hindu families from Jacobabad, comprising 90 members left for Indiadue to lack of safety and security in Sindh province. Serious allegations have been leveled on Pakistani Hindus that six months back, at least 52 Hindu families from the Jacobabad area migrated to India.

If we peep into history, soon after independence India carried out propaganda and instigated Hindu population in Pakistan to migrate to India. It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan scheme ensured full protection of minorities. Quaid-e-Azam in an interview to Reuter’s Correspondent on 25 October 1947 said. “As for the two nation theory, it is not a theory but a fact. The division of India is based on that fact and what is more, that fact has been proved beyond doubt by the ugly and deplorable events of the past two months, and by the action of dominion of India in pulling out Hindus from Pakistan. How then it can be said that there is one nation?” What ever, the case may be, the Pakistani Hindus are loyal citizens. Pakistan is their land and they are sons of the soil. No one on the earth can compel them to migrate to any country. They have their properties, their businesses and above all the memories of their forefathers which would maintain their bondage withPakistan for ever.

The minorities must also understand that although the law and order situation in Pakistanis under control but not as good as should have been. There are foreign agents everywhere. It would not be an over exaggeration that illegal migrates from India and other neighbouring states accounts to over 3.9 Crore. Ironically, till early 1970ies, the population of East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) was 56 percent while the West Pakistan was 46 percent. Today, thanks to illegal immigrants from India that where, the population of Bangladesh is 16 Crore, the pollution in Pakistan has increased to 19 Crore (figures taken from the World Factbook July 2012). If we recall that at the time of partition there was a lot of killings and looting in both India and Pakistan. The ultimate beneficiaries in Pakistan were the illegal immigrants who occupied the properties and businesses of fleeing minorities, which still they hold. There is no doubt that the propaganda of mass migration of Hindus is cock and bull story. It is high time that beside businesses, Hindus and other minorities must join government services including Armed Forces and Police so that not only the country can develop and prosper in real sense but minorities are represented in every walk of life. The Pakistani nation needs to be cautious of black propaganda by Indian and US Cyber Commands which is using media and mobile SMS to create misunderstanding between the loyal citizens of Pakistan. afshainafzal@yahoo.com
