Times of India Report:’Hindu men being forced to embrace Islam in Pak’

ATTARI: The news of forcible conversion of Hindu girls in Pakistan by fundamental Muslims are often heard, but now a Pak Hindu couple has alleged that even Hindu men are forced to embrace Islam.

“Hindu boys are threatened of dire consequences, Hindu businessmen are not allowed to conduct their business or open shops and are pressurized to embrace Islam,” said Pakistani couple Anil Kumar and Poonam, who “migrated” to India on Tuesday leaving behind their business and family members on the mercy of fundamentalists. Carrying handful of their luggage, the couple started crying as they crossed the Radcliff Line on foot and reached India.

While talking to TOI, Anil Kumar said his wife had a heart problem on the basis of which, they managed to obtain a visa to India to undertake treatment at Indore. “We have had enough in Pakistan, we will not go back and live here all our life,” said Anil. He said that Hindu shopkeepers were threatened to give hafta (weekly protection money) if they wanted to open their shops and were also pressurized to embrace Islam if they wanted to make their lives better. “I have a shop in Larkana in Sindh, the Muslim fundamentalists ask for hafta and when I refused, they threatened to eliminate my family,” he said.
