The story of a Hindu family in Pakistan
I happened to meet a Hindu family who would not fear to tell that they were Hindu as there is no discrimination made on basis of religion.
The kids used to go to a renowned educational institution and had a great social circle.
Their father was a manager at a Pakistani restaurant while their mother was a Hindi teacher at a University. They lived in a good urban area and enjoyed a great time with neighbors there.
We have a Hindu senator who voices for Hindus and it is always welcomed. If there are disputes between India and Pakistan: no law or action is made against the Hindu community.
Hindus living in Rural areas
Yes, there are issues in Pakistan, yet they are not confined to Hindus only. If Hindus in rural Sindh face a problem, then the analysis shows a similar problem was being faced by the Muslims as well.
There are cultural and social issues in some rural areas of Pakistan and Pakistan as a society is fighting hard against them.
