Pakistani Hindu youth murdered in Sindh
Tue, Mar 10 08:18 PM
Islamabad, Mar 10 (PTI) A Pakistani Hindu youth from the country’s southern Sindh province was killed after being kidnapped along with three other members of his family, prompting President Asif Ali Zardari to seek a report on the crime from the government. Mender, a youth hailing from a village near Sukkur in Sindh, was kidnapped along with three other members of his family about a month ago.
The kidnappers informed Mender’s family to collect his body from the railway tracks near the Sangi railway station today. The whereabouts of the other kidnapped persons are still not known, said an official statement.
President Zardari condemned the murder of the Hindu youth by his abductors and called for his killers to be arrested and punished. In a message from Tehran, where he is on a two-day official visit, Zardari expressed shock and grief over the killing of the kidnapped youth on the eve of the Holi.
Describing the murder as barbaric, Zardari sought a report on the crime from the Sindh government. He also directed it to recover the other kidnapped persons and to bring the culprits to justice.
Zardari also conveyed his condolences to Mender’s family and directed Ramesh Lal, a minority parliamentarian from the ruling Pakistan People’s Party, to visit the youth’s kin. PTI. End
Last year another Hindu youth was tortured and killed in Sindh. Possibly the Mohameddan fascists were showing the kindess and mercy of their religion.
Sindh govt orders probe into Hindu youth’s murder

Islamabad: Pakistan’s Sindh provincial government has ordered a probe into the recent killing of a Hindu youth by his Muslim colleagues in a Karachi factory for allegedly making blasphemous remarks about Prophet Mohammed.
After the probe was ordered by Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah, minority legislator Petambar Sehwani from the province’s ruling Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) went to Jagdish Kumar’s home in Mirpurkhas last night to ascertain the facts about his death. Kumar was beaten to death on April 8 by his co-workers, who accused him of making blasphemous remarks about Prophet Mohammed.
His relatives and several NGOs have organised protests and demanded that the government conduct an inquiry into his murder. Sehwani met Kumar’s relatives, including his father and mother.
The legislator also met local Human Rights Commission of Pakistan representative Kanji Ranomal Bheel and rights activist Asghar Narejo and exchanged views about the incident.
The legislator said he had been deputed by the Sindh government to inquire into Kumar’s killing. Sehwani said after completing his inquiry, he would submit a report to Chief Minister Shah for taking action in the matter.
