Islamabad, Aug 18(ANI): Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has ordered Sindh Chief Minister Sindh Qaim Ali Shah to make an amendment to the constitution against forced conversion of minorities in the state.
Pakistan Peoples Party MNA Faryal Talpur and Shah briefed the president about the concerns of the Hindu community following reports of their mass migration to India during a meeting at Bilawal House.
The reports of mass migration of Hindus to India are merely speculative, but people of the Hindu community are insisting that a law is made against forced conversions, the Express Tribune sources quoted the chief minister as saying.
According to sources Zardari has directed his sister, Faryal Talpur and Shah to visit Jacobabad and meet representatives of the Hindu community before formulating a law on forced conversions.
Elected representatives and leaders of the Hindu panchayat would be members of the committee.
If any case of conversion is reported without the consent of a girl and her parents, the SHOs would frame charges of kidnapping against the people involved, a Sindh cabinet member familiar with the development said. (ANI)
