The Monthly Sport of Mirpur Khas in Pakistan

The district of Mirpur Khas in Pakistan is one of the last to have a significant (by Pakistan’s abysmal standards) population of Hindus. What do I mean by “significant”? Please don’t think 80.74% like the percentage of Muslims in Kairana. Remember this is Pakistan, notorious for exterminating its minorities. In Pakistan, there are only a total of about 1.5 to 2% Hindus left. In Mirpur Khas district, this number is one of the highest at around 30%.

Now, in Mirpur Khas, every month a ritual sport happens. No, not Cricket. Instead, an underage Hindu girl is kidnapped by Muslim goons, beaten, threatened etc. and forced to convert to Islam. Here is a very short BBC clip on one such case (which also gives the background in general):

Now, the state government of Sindh even tried to pass a law to protect these helpless Hindus—the law would prohibit the conversion of a minor (age less than 18). The law passed in Nov 2016, but the Islamic fundamentalists of Pakistan would have none of it—they deem any such law “anti Islamic.”

So the sickening process of forced conversions of Hindu girls in Sindh continues— here is a report by BBC after the law was passed:

Now, as the custodians of secular values, one wonders why our highly vocal MSM never brings their ire upon this issue. An entire community, religion, and culture is being systematically and brutally wiped out through these forced conversions, but there is nary an article on this from the likes of those who love to publish article after article bashing “Hindu fundamentalists” or “Saffron terror” or any other imaginary bogey.
