The Congress party and other opposition parties in India will not utter a single word about these Hindus because they are least bothered whether Hindus in Pakistan remain in Pakistan instead of migrating to India or face genocide in Pakistan. This is why they are opposing the Citizen Amendment Act.
Lahore (Pakistan) – India’s new Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 has claimed its first two victims in Pakistan. Two Hindu brothers from Lahore, Pakistan, wanted to move to India for a better life where their cousin already lives, encouraged by India’s new citizenship law. The law offers protection to persecuted minorities fleeing from neighbouring Muslim-majority countries – Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
They never made it because they were stopped by some Muslim radicals and killed, an incident that will further fuel tensions between religious groups in the two neighbouring countries.
The two brothers killed were identified as Gyanchand and Premchand, cousins of Lakshman, a Pakistani Hindu refugee who already lives in the Adarsh Nagar refugee camp on the northern outskirts of Delhi. The camp is home to some 600 Pakistani Hindus, 85 families, including 150 children.
From the social media analysis, it is understood that the murders took place between 12-15 December. Their families are devastated. This is the plight of Hindus. Their lives are in danger even while immigrating to India. According to some Pakistani Hindus, the brothers wanted to go to India where they could be treated like ‘any other citizen’.
