Kolkata, August 23, 2016: The symbol of terror, Mian Mithoo is making headlines for past few weeks and there is a reason why the Hindus in Pakistan fear him!
Not many are aware that Pir Abdul Haq is better known as Mian Mithoo- is the former leader of the Pakistan People’s Party Parliamentarians (PPPP) and a Muslim cleric. He is the one behind kidnapping Hindu girls and forcibly converting them to Islam.
Apart from forcefully converting Hindus to Islam in Pakistan, there are several other cases registered against him. He is also accused of the murder of a Hindu boy and a doctor on August 6. Apart from that, a few years ago, a case was filed against his name by Rinkle Kumari’s family, one of the Hindu residents of Pakistan, that Mian Mithoo supported the girl’s abduction.

To mark protest against forceful Islamic conversion, thousands of protesters had come down to the streets with banners that said #ArrestMianMithoo, Stop forced conversion of Hindu Girls and others- the crowd was full of Hindu activists and Hindu groups of Pakistan, who had assembled at Lahore’s Faisal Square in Karachi and Islamabad on National Minorities Day, in Pakistan.
This protest was not confined within the boundaries of Pakistan and got spread across the world. Hindu communities in the places like– Toronto, Houston, and New York had shown their outrage and had protested against the same, mentioned Zee News.
Mian Mithoo who belongs to an influential family in Pakistan’s Sindh province is also accused of kidnapping teenage girls, especially who are under 18, and forcefully getting them married to their respective kidnappers so that they can be converted to Islam.
Even after numerous protests, Mian Mithoo is still strong in his place, denying the facts that have been alleged against him. It has been known from a source, that according to him, “The girls who come to us are mature. Within hours of their arrival, we call their parents so they can talk to their daughters- offer them come meet them. If the girls still refuse to go, as Muslims we then provide them protection.”

But, the Hindu activist Kapil Dev used the social media to gain support in this issue denied the statement by Mr.Haq. He questioned why all those girls of Hindu families, around the province, used to meet Haq, but not any other Muslim cleric, mentioned a leading news portal.
President of the Pakistani Hindu Council, Mr.Ramesh Kumar Vankwani also went against the declaration made by Mithoo. Expressing deep despair, he said that these forceful conversions and kidnapping have become the biggest problem in Pakistan and this is the reason, Hindus are leaving Pakistan.
Finding no way out of this situation, the Hindus in Pakistan are left with one question- “Where to go?”
