Protest Rally held for the Freedom of baluch sister Rinkle Kumari in Washington DC

WASHINGTON DC: The premier American Friends of Balochistan has called upon the U.S. government to impose stiff sanctions against Pakistan for gross violations of human rights of Hindus and Other Religious Minorities in Pakistan.

In a Press release the A.F.B. said it fully supports the upcoming rally to win freedom for Rinkel Kumari, 19, a Hindu girl who was abducted, forced to convert and marry a Muslim man in Pakistan under the shadow of bayonets.

On Saturday, April 14, a rally is being organized by a coalition of U.S. grassroots organizations to support human rights and dignity for Hindus and Christians in Pakistan.

The event held in front of the U.S.-Pakistan Business Council across the street from Lafayette Square Park in downtown Washington DC.

The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan in its latest report released last month said on an average around 20 to 25 Hindu girls are being forcibly converted to Islam every month in the southern Sindh province, Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) has said. Christian women also face similar conversions on a massive scale.

“Hindus and Christian females are made to embrace Islam and forced into sexual slavery by the mullahs of Pakistan who enjoy the military’s support,” the A.F.B. said in its Press release. “The A.F.B. stands in solidarity with the oppressed Hindus and Christians of Pakistan and demands that all human rights violators must be brought to justice.”

The A.F.B. said all future aid to Pakistan must be tied to the undoing of the blasphemy law that is aimed to deny the Hindus and Christians their basic human rights. “It is regrettable that Pakistan is officially an Islamic Republic, where only a Muslim can become the head of government or head of state,” the A.F.B. said.


DC rally against Pakistan sexual slavery of Hindu, Christian women

In the case of Rinkel Kumari, a member of parliament beloning to the ruling Pakistan People's Party is involved. She begged the chief justice of Pakistan, Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry to allow her to go with her parents but the judge who is a Punjabi Muslim ordered her to be shifted to a homeless shelter.
According to Dr. Nazir S. Bhatti, president of the Pakistan Christian Congress, the aim of sending Kumari to the homeless shelter was to coerce/pressure her to change her faith.

Dozens of Christian and Hindu women are abducted, forcibly converted and forced into sexual slavery every month in Pakistan.

At the time of Pakistan's partition from India in August 1947, minority population stood at 15 percent but because of the state atrocities the Hindus and Christians have fled Pakistan in large numbers and today thir overall population is said to be less than three percent.
