Hindus in Pak Denied RTI Right


Islamabad: While a never satisfied minority community is pampered in India, Hindus in Pakistan are spending time in fear and are denied basic rights.

The biased agenda of the Islamic nation has again been highlighted after Activists from the minority Hindu community in Pakistan have staged a protest here against the provincial government of Khyber Pakthunkhwa for allegedly not allowing minorities to access information through the recently enacted Right to Information Act.

The members of the All Pakistan Hindu Rights Movements (APHRM) held the demonstration outside the Press Club building here against the alleged exclusion of the minorities from the ambit of the legislation. The minority group’s leaders alleged that the Khyber Pakthunkhwa government was not giving them their due rights and they were being subjected to “discriminatory attitude.”

“Prohibiting access to information will weaken minorities and undermine their civic and political rights,” APHRM chairman Haroon Sarab Diyal said. The demonstrators demanded that the government provide correct information to the members of the minority community under the law.
