    NEW DELHI: India would be open to giving asylum to Hindus from Pakistan if they ask for it. Some 250-odd Hindus have arrived recently and most are keen on seeking permanent residence in India as they fear persecution in Pakistan.

    India is "surprised" at the sudden influx of Hindus from Pakistan who have indicated that they will ask for asylum after arriving here for an annual pilgrimage or tourism visit, said government sources. In the past week, at least three batches of Hindus have come to India from Pakistan.

    Although they were made to sign documents promising to return before being allowed to cross into India, many of them have said they would ask for asylum here.

    If these Hindus approach the government - sources said they had not yet done so - it would be an inter-ministerial decision. However, sources said "India does not generally turn away asylum seekers."

    The plight of Hindus in Pakistan has figured in Parliament with BJP leader Rajnath Singh forcefully raising the religious and human rights violations the community faces in the neighbouring country. He found the support of other parties with BJD's Bhartruhari Mahtab saying India should offer shelter to Hindus migrating from Pakistan. Mahtab said Pakistan has been unable to protect its minorities.

    Migration of Hindus an embarrassment for Pakistan

    The plight of Hindus in Pakistan figured in Parliament on Tuesday with BJP leader Rajnath Singh forcefully raising the religious and human rights violations the community faces in the neighbouring country.

    Punjab Congress has written to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh asking for government intervention to provide Hindus refuge from Pakistan. Mulayam Singh Yadav of SP said the issue should be dealt with on a humanitarian level and India should not stay silent.

    The latest group of 14 Hindus came via Attari on Monday, after 250 came over last week. They bring harrowing tales of harassment, violence and death at the hands of Islamists.

    These migrations are embarrassing to Pakistan. In his Independence Day speech, Pakistan army chief General Kayani made a pointed reference to the security of minorities. He recalled that in the original mandate, Pakistan was to be an Islamic welfare state. Without a specific reference to the Hindus, Kayani said minorities in Pakistan should be free to live and work and practice their faith without fear.

    The Hindus who crossed the border on Monday said they would flout their promise to return and would stay on in India. They alleged severe persecution, harassment, forced conversion, extortion and abduction and forced marriages of young girls by Islamist groups in Pakistan. The groups are mainly residents of Sindh and Balochistan. About 250 Hindus were briefly detained at the border by Pakistani authorities. They were allowed to enter India after signing a commitment to return, and told not to criticize Pakistan while in India.

    Government sources said these Hindus had been given visas like other regular Pakistanis, as this is generally the time of the year when they arrive on pilgrimage around Janmashtami.

    The issue is certain to feature in the discussions when foreign minister S M Krishna travels to Islamabad for talks with his counterpart Hina Rabbani Khar. In May, Krishna had told Parliament, "It is the responsibility of the government of Pakistan to discharge its constitutional obligations towards its citizens, including those from the minority community." But the migrations might change the issue.

    The trials and tribulations of Pakistani Hindus came into limelight when a 14-year-old girl, Manisha Kumari, was kidnapped, forced to convert to Islam and married off. Earlier this year, Pakistan's Supreme court heard the case of three women, Rinkie, Asha and Lata, who allegedly faced the same fate. Last month, a 20-year-old, Sunil "converted" to Islam on TV, during Ramzan, to the delight of a cheering audience.

    Let them in, at least they will be able to balance the demographic influx from Bangladesh. But route to Indian citizenship will be extremely hard for these people unlike the Bangladeshi infiltrators whose names appear in our electoral rolls as soon as they set their feet on our soil.

    India should give asylum to Hindus, Sikhs, Christians, Buddhists, Ahmadiyas and Shias who are actively being persecuted in Bakistan.

    Like to add, if giving asylum means Rohingyas from Burma also should be accomodated - Rohingyas have nothing to do with India, they are originally Bangladeshis from Chittagong and they have a country to go back to i.e. Bangladesh. Minorities of Pakistan OTOH are Indians from undivided India who chose to stay on/were unable to leave Pakistan.

    Nope. Bangladesh will not accommodate them. When the Rohingyas left Chittagong 100 years go, it was part of India. Now when the Rohingyas are seeking asylum, it is India's responsibility. Samjhe! :taunt:

    India is full of 121 crores already and now these migrants....These people must be checked before giving them any shelter and should give citizenship unless they don't behave good. We are facing illegal migration of muslims from bangladesh and look what they're doing with our country.These people are opportunists,nothing else.I hope these Hindus don't be radical and puppets of politicians for votebank like muslim migrants.

    Bangladesh does not even take back the illegal Bangladeshis who are sought to be returned to them, forget about Rohingyas! In any case Tarun Gogoi, 3 time CM of Assam himself has said that there are no illegal Bangladeshis in Assam, kudos to Assamese people for voting this man again and again, dont complain afterwards!

    I am just stating a fact for the record hoping someone will read and register. Chittagongian, the language spoken by the Rohingays is not spoken by Gujaratis or Tamilians or Bengalis or Assamese or Punjabis or anyone else in India but the residents of Chittagong district in Bangladesh. Bangladesh does not accept that there are Bangladeshis entering India illegally (as if BD is a paradise that no one wants to leave!), thats a good strategy to unload hungry mouths to feed.

    Some measures to remedy the problem -

    1) Complete India-BD fencing on war footing. Fencing of 272 kms of border was proposed in Assam accord of 1983, nothing much has been done on that front.

    2) Start registering and identifying workers/labourers immediately to catch illegals. Even if they cannot be sent back, ration cards and other facilities should be with drawn from them. Our PDS is for the benefit of our own people - Hindus/Muslims/Christians/etc not some Bangladeshis who have sneaked in. Facilities given to Indian citizens cannot be sqaundered on illegals, India is still a very poor country and we must look after our own first.

    BTW Kerala has started identifying workers antecedents recently. Couple of weeks ago a Bangladesi from Assam was thrashed by people and handed over to police when he tried to kdnap a girl on the way to college.

    Even if central government and Tarun Gogoi and Mamata Banerji do not want to do anything about the problem for their own reasons, other state govts can start on a war footing to identify illegal Bangladeshis.

    3) Strict draconian 2 child policy for all, both husband and wife to be sterilised after 2 kids. Though in the case of vast number of cases poverty and ignorance leads to people having large families, there are sections of society that tend to have large families. This should deter BDs and be a good rule to follow in the country as well.

    4) Uniform Civil Code - India today is a semi-secular state in which minorities especially Muslims are given special privileges such as allowing polygamy and Hindu traditions allowed in state spaces such as doing poojas in offices. Also one more important measure - release Hindus temples from the clutches of the state, else bring mosques and church finances under govt control as for temples (i.e. the money donated by the faithful be used by Muzrai department of the govt). Let India be a truly secular state in which no religion is given special privileges. In such a situation people who divided the country in 1947 and considered their faith to be their sole identifier will not want to come to India. No special privileges to any one group of people.

    That sounded really childish. What had the puki authorities planned to achieve by this? Once the families were in India, who was to stop them anyway?

    On their return they will be told they criticised Pakistan hence not allowed to return back to Pakistan or prosecuted on their return, if at all they return.

    Hindus should take asylum in the west and Not India, as India eventually will never be able to protect their rights or honor, all due its disgusting secular nature!

    Indian Hindus are not safe and are being driven out of their own land and rendered refugees! What will these Hindus achieve by coming to India as in the near future India will be pakistan 2.0 due its love for secularism/islam, as secular and jihadi forces have started their dance of destruction!
