After the Partition, the 1950 agreement between India and Pakistan stated that former will take care of its Muslim people and latter will take care of its Hindu population, but this was obeyed in Pakistan. The Hindus have been persecuted in Pakistan for many years. There, Hindus are targeted for no reason and experience hardships until they convert their religion to Islam.

In 2010, Human Rights Commission report of Pakistan stated that nearly 20 to 15 girls are abducted every month and are forcibly converted to Islam. Hindus have always been the soft-targets in Pakistan. At the time when India and Pakistan separated, the population of Hindus in Pakistan was around 3 crores. Now, they are decreased to a small fraction in Pakistan since many of them have managed to escape the country somehow.


Recently, a 56-year-old Hindu doctor Preetam Das was gunned down in the Pak colony area in Karachi on August 4.

According to the website Dawn.com, Akhtar Farooq, SSP Investigation West said, “Dr Preetam Das was sitting in his clinic located in Hasrat Mohani colony at midnight on Thursday when someone attacked him.”

He further added that the doctor’s attendant went out buy a mobile card when the doctor was shot down. The doctor sustained the wound from the gunshot to the chest. “Hearing the gunshot, the assistant rushed to the clinic and found the doctor bleeding,” said Farooq.

According to dawn.com reports, the assistant with the help of a friend, carried him on a motorbike and then shifted him to a rickshaw to transport him to Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, explained the police official.

Modern couples are now looking for ways to have a wedding with a sustainably conscious mindset.

Include the work of local vendors ensure minimal packaging requirements, thus saving on unnecessary plastic and lamination. It also decreases the need for transporting elements from other cities and hence lowers the carbon footprint. For instance, at one of our weddings, we made use of sand art for a setup in Jodhpur. This helped promote local work while also being environmentally friendly with zero wastage of other materials. In another instance from Rajasthan, the traditional glass-blown technique was used to build decor items while giving a cultural touch to the destination wedding.
