Human Rights Violations in Sindh, Pakistan
The World Sindh Institute has released its 2005 report on Human Rights violations in Sindh, the southeastern province of Pakistan. The reports catalogs reports of honor killings, vioolence against women, arbitrary arrests and disappearances.
Sindh political movements and human rights activistis have been accused of terrorism by the pakistani government and its activists jailed and tortured. Sindh leader, Shafi Burfat, remains in hiding. Sindh Hindus have been forced to convert to Islam. In one case three daughters were kidnapped from their school. A few days later, their parents received a letter from a Madressah that they had converted to Islam and would not be allowed to return to their parents.
The oppression of Sindh Hindus has led to the emigration of some 17,000 Sindh to India in the last decade.
