According to media reports, the news of abduction of Hindu girls is constantly in the headlines, but its accused do not get any punishment. Pakistan Hindu Parishad says that under the guise of lack of evidence, the court also grants him bail immediately. When the police register a complaint of kidnapping of a girl and get her recovered, why they are not able to give evidence of this, that is the big question.
Hindu girls are routinely abducted in Pakistan. They are victims of cruelty, but they do not get proper justice. There are 44 lakh Hindus in Pakistan. According to the 2017 Pakistan Census, it comprises 2.14 percent of the total population. However, the Pakistan Hindu Council claims that there are around 8 million Hindus in the country.
