Hindus forced out in Karachi

The Asian Age | Correspondent, July 10th, 2010

Islamabad, July 9: Muslim extremists have forced dozens of Hindu families to abandon their homes near Pakistan’s commercial capital Karachi for daring to drink water from a cooler placed outside a mosque, the police sources said.

“What we have now is that a boy from the Hindu family drank water from the cooler placed outside the mosque. Some Muslims have made it an issue and have maltreated the Hindus,” a police official in Memon Goth area said.

He said the extremists think the Hindu has made the water impure and also tried to “cross the limits”.

He said as many as 60 Hindu men, women and children were forced into abandoning their homes.
