Muslims Guard Mandirs in Ghotki to Show Solidarity With Hindus

Following riots in Ghotki over alleged blasphemy committed by a Hindu teacher, the human rights of minorities in the country are the talking point.

Conventional and social media are being used to discuss human rights violations. The activists are calling for investigations and the Police has already booked a number of people involved in the attacks on Hindus in Ghotki.

Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was biggest preacher of freedom for all religions.

You are free; you are free to go to your temples. You are free to go to your mosques or to any other places of worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion, caste or creed—that has nothing to do with the business of the state.

To show solidarity with the Pakistani Hindus, a crowd of Muslims gathered at a Mandir in Ghotki to protect the minority people from the mobs, who tried to take the law into their own hands.

As a sign of solidarity, Muslims from parts of Sindh marched to their nearby Mandirs where they guarded their members of the Hindu community to showcase the interfaith harmony.

In another example, students at a local school in Sindh made the sign of Hindu Swastika to promote peace, urging the Sindhi brothers and sisters to take care of the Hindus.

What are your thoughts on the gesture shown by the Sindhis? Let us know in the comment section.
