New Delhi, July 4
The Minister for home Amit Shah on Saturday met with a delegation of the Pakistan-born refugees of the Hindu community and assured them that a long-term visa will be provided all of them to allow them to settle in this country.
Delhi Sikh gurdwara management Committee (DSGMC) President Manjinder Singh Sirsa, who led the delegation, said, confidence came from the Shah.
He said demand for citizenship for families who came to India on a tourist/pilgrims/visa and want to settle down in India.
Sears said these Pakistani Hindus were forced to leave Pakistan after religious persecution. Some of them live on the banks of the Yamuna roads with heavy traffic in makeshift tents and plastered walls with metal roofs in the North Delhi area of Majnu Ka Tilla.
Some of them are well educated, but I feel safe in Pakistan. Like other minorities, they were also concerned about the safety and dignity of their families, especially young daughters, said Sears, adding that Pakistani Hindus and all other national minorities do not feel safe in Pakistan.
The blasphemy and other laws are used in Pakistan to arrest the family members of the Hindus and the Sikhs.
