During the Corona virus lockdown in Pakistan, there was a huge conversion of Hindu and Christian girls. Pakistani human rights activists have expressed concern that, as a result, the sense of insecurity in the minds of minorities has also increased rapidly. The fanatical attitude of the police in Imran Khan’s government and the absence of strict laws encouraged and strengthened fundamentalists.
America also expressed concern
The US State Department this month declared Pakistan as a country particularly concerned about the violation of religious freedom. However, Pakistan’s decision was rejected by the United States. According to an independent human rights commission in Pakistan, these girls are usually kidnapped and then married. Most of these girls are poor Hindu girls from Sindh province.
