As per the latest reports coming in from Pakistan, needy people belonging to the Hindu community have been denied food by the authorities in the Sindh province of the country.
The COVID-19 outbreak has made its massive presence felt in the neighboring country of Pakistan too. With the number of cases rising steeply, the economically vulnerable sections of the society are facing trouble there too.
Hindus denied Food
While the government had made arrangements to provide food to the needy, the latest developments show that the minorities are in deep concern.
Yesterday, many had gathered in the Rehrri Ghoth in Karachi to receive essential supplies from the government. The government was supplying the ration to the people through an NGO. The arrangement was mainly made, keeping in mind the condition of the daily-wage laborers and workers.
However, the Hindus were asked to go back, as they were told that the ration was meant only for the Muslims. Apart from Karachi, the same has been repeated in other areas such as Lyari and Sachal Ghoth.
Activists call for the Indian Government’s intervention
Dr. Amjad Ayub Mirza, a political activist has called out for Indian PM Narendra Modi to intervene in the topic. He stressed that the minorities are facing trouble in Pakistan.
Mr. Ayub also asked the Indian Government to send essential supplies to the Sindh province in Pakistan via Rajasthan. There are close to 500000 Hindus living in the Sindh province.
