The number of Pakistani Hindus migrating to Indore is on the rise. This year, around 1,000 Pakistani Hindus have migrated to Indore and few hundreds have taken shelter in Bhopal and Gwalior.

State has maximum number of Pakistani Hindus mainly concentrated in Indore. As of now, around 10,000 Pakistani Hindus are in Madhya Pradesh out of which nearly 6,000 are in Indore.To press for the security, livelihood and citizenship of these migrant Pakistani Hindus, a cell of Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) has prepared a study report and demanded for special package for them. Under the packages, they have demanded that process to give citizenships to Pakistani Hindus should be speeden up, they should be given accommodation, food and arrangement should be made for their education and job till they get citizenship.

Convenor of Bhartiya Sindhu Sabha and city president of BJP, Shankar Lalwani-who was part of the team which had conducted the survey, said on Wednesday that Hindus living in Pakistan have only three options-either to get converted to Islam, leave the country or die."Condition of Hindus in Pakistan is very miserable and they are migrating to Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan in hope of new life," Lalwani said, adding that during their survey done by interaction with the migrants in Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh, it was found that incident of rape and forceful marriage of Hindu girls are common. Hindus can not even sell their properties and valuable goods; they being taken away from them at gun point. They are facing all sorts of atrocities and leaving under threat.

Lalwani said that a copy of the study has been submitted to senior leader LK Advani and party will also raise this issue in parliament soon."Party will raise this issue in parliament and demand from government to highlight plight of Pakistani Hindus at international forum like UN, international human right body and create pressure over Pakistani government to protect Hindus leaving there," Lalwani said.

He further said that BJP will also create pressure over union government to include this issue in agenda of bilateral talks with Pakistan.

"Congress government does not want to include issue of Pakistani Hindus in bilateral talks with Pakistan with a view to appease minority community here," alleges Lalwani.Lalwani said that study has also demanded relaxation in visa and citizenship rule for Pakistani Hindus."For migrants, getting visa for India is very difficult and it takes at least seven years to get citizenship. We demand that people should be given citizenship early," Lalwani said.
