ISLAMABAD: Patron-in-chief of the Pakistan Hindu Council (PHC) Dr. Ramesh Kumar has asserted that the killing of 11 Pakistani Hindus in India’s Jodhpur had exposed New Delhi’s Citizenship Amendment Act.
Earlier in 2019, India’s parliament had passed a bill that offers amnesty to non-Muslim illegal immigrants from three neighbouring countries.
“This killing raises the question whether it was a real act to grant amnesty or one to fool people,” Dr. Ramesh Kumar said while addressing a press conference in Islamabad today (Sunday).
Ramesh Kumar further informed that he would soon move the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against India’s crime of killing the Hindu family.
Referring to India’s injustice to Muslims, he said that he was invited to attend the groundbreaking of the Ayodhya Mandir. “I declined the offer and said that I have never heard about Allah’s worship being razed to the ground and a place for Ram’s worship being built on top,” he added.
He also said that in Pakistan, it’s supreme court was fighting for the rights of minorities in the country, while the Indian supreme court has issued a judgment to build a temple on top of a mosque site.
Commenting on the Kashmir issue, he said that the people of India-occupied Kashmir were incarcerated in their houses for over 400 days. “The people of the region are suffering,” he remarked.
Eleven Pakistani Hindus, including children, were found dead in mysterious circumstances in village Lodta, Haridasot, district Jodhpur, on August 9, 2019.
A large number of Hindus from across Pakistan have staged a sit-in at the Indian High Commission in Islamabad to protest the incident. They have also called upon the international community to provide them justice.
