In another case of human rights abuse of religious minority in Pakistan, a Hindu girl was allegedly sold for Rs 50,000 by a police official in Sindh province. Three days after being sold, the girl was forcibly converted to Islam and married to one, Zafar Masoori.
The victim identified as Anila Bagri had been abducted some time ago in her hometown, Mirpur Mathelo of Ghotki district. She was later rescued by police but her ordeal just began here. One of the police officials, Sajjad Qazi held her back and did not allow her to go home.
GIRL SOLD FOR Rs 50,000
When Anila’s family came to know about her rescue from the abductors, they approached Mirpur Mathelo police. But, Sajjad Qazi refused to let go the girl. He demanded Rs 50,000 from the parents of Anila. This led to a protest by the locals.
But, soon Qazi handed Anila to one of his friends, Masoori in return for money. Local media reported the matter and built up pressure on the administration forcing an inquiry. Ghotki SSP Masood Bangesh was tasked to conduct the probe. Pending investigation, SSP suspended the accused police official.
Meanwhile, amidst recent reports of atrocities on minorities in Sindh, Hindus of the area have staged protests at several places.
“It’s a matter of routine in Pakistan to abduct a Hindu girl, rape her or force her to convert for Niqah. This has been the norm in the country since 1947. They think that Hindus should be driven out of Pakistan to make it a total Islamic nation and Anila Bagri was nothing but a part of the plot,” said Rajkumar, a local.
Mirpur Mathelo was in news a few years ago but for the same reason. A Hindu girl, Rinkal Kumari was allegedly forcefully converted and forced to marry a local guy. Even in recent months, the town was in news for targeted killing of a Hindu boy, Satish Kumar.
Activist Ravi Dawani of All Pakistan Hindu Panchayat said, “Forced conversion of Hindu girls in Pakistan is not new. Such incidents are not about Rinkals, Anjalis, Shobhas or Anilas. It’s not about names. The point is how to find a solution to this problem.”
“There seems to be a conspiracy behind it. They want to disturb the Hindu community so that they move out from here. But, we will stay here. We appeal to the government to protect our children and our family,” Dawani said.

RESPONSE FROM RULING PARTY
Responding to the angry protests over frequent abduction of Hindu girls in Sindh, ruling PML Nawaz MP, Dr Ramesh Vankwani said, “Such forced conversion of girls is against humanity. This must stop.”
“I am tired of raising voice; nothing happens here. Everyone knows what happens in Mirpur Mathelo. Girls are forced to convert and sold for Rs 50,000 to Rs one lakh. Only today, I got a High Court order for the release of one such girl,” Vankwani said.
MIA MITHU FACTOR
In almost all the cases of abduction and forceful conversion of Hindu girls in Sindh, former PPP MP Pir Abdul Haq, better known as Mia Mithu has been the prime suspect in public opinion.
Even in the case of Anila Bagri, locals point finger at Mia Mithu, who is facing 117 cases of abduction and forced conversion of Hindu girls. Many call this former Pakistan parliamentarian a ”symbol of terror’.
MINORITY HINDU AS TARGET
“If mullah had their say, they would force even animals to accept Islam. Their bigotry is giving a bad name for Pakistan in the world,” noted Pakistani journalist Najam Sethi was quoted as saying.
Deputy editor of Awami Awaz, Asad Chandiyo said, “Forced conversion of Hindu girls is very common in Sindh. Earlier, only people like Mia Mithu did such things, now even police are doing it. Chances of getting justice for such victims are very bleak.”

MEERUT, India: Tension prevails at Saharanpur’s Dabki Junardar village after an imam allegedly molested a seven-year-old girl inside the local mosque. According to sources, the Muslim cleric allegedly “bit the girl’s cheek” when she tried to flee from his grasp, leaving a visible mark. A case has been registered on the insistence of the girl’s family but the imam is on the run.
Kari Khalid, the cleric, used to teach children inside the premises of the mosque. On Monday morning, the girl went to him for her lesson, when he started molesting her. When the girl realized what was going on, she tried to wriggle out of his grasp, but the cleric bit her on the cheek, leaving a mark on her face. She rushed home and in the evening, the family filed a case against Khalid in the police station,” said Piyush Dixit, station officer at Saharanpur (rural) police station.
He added, “Khalid is currently absconding. We are raiding his potential hideouts. We are certain that he will be caught soon. We have sent the girl for a medical test and are collecting circumstantial evidence from the mosque. The imam has no criminal history in Saharanpur that I am aware of but we are trying to pull out his criminal records to see if he was involved in a similar case in the past as well.”
The Rising Persecution of the Hindu in Their Own Nation, on Their Own Lands…

Kairana (Uttar Pradesh): At a time when the Central government is mulling to award citizenship to Hindu migrants from Pakistan and Bangladesh, there are reports that the community is being to forced to migrate from a city in Uttar Pradesh.
The disturbing trend has been witnessed in Kairana, located 124 kilometres from Delhi in Uttar Pradesh’s Shamli district, and is similar to what happened with Kashmiri Pandits in J&K in the 1990s.
At least 346 Hindu families have migrated from Kairana due to goondaism and extortion threats. This figure has been provided by none other than Kairana MP Hukum Singh (BJP).
Kairana is both an Assembly as well as Lok Sabha constituency, but the migration has been witnessed mainly in area that falls under the Assembly constituency.
As per the 2011 Census, Kairana had 30% Hindus while the percentage of Muslims was at 68%. However, the figure now stands at only 8% Hindus and 92% Muslims, as per the local administration.
Kairana is located close to Muzaffarnagar which was hit by communal riots in 2013.
When Zee Media correspondent Rahul Sinha travelled to Kairana, he found that people there were afraid of speaking on camera fearing for their lives.
They recalled that four businessmen had been murdered recently in the area.
“The atmosphere here is not good. After (Muzaffarnagar) riots, relief camps were established here. The atmosphere has turned bad after that,” Gurpreet Singh, a resident, told Zee Media.
It may be recalled that when Muzaffarnagar was hit by riots, not a single incidence of violence was reported from Kairana.
Anmol, another resident, said, “It has become very difficult to live here.”
BJP MP Hukum Singh said that “most of the families who have migrated from here were well-off”.
“People who forced them out likely had their eyes set on their properties,” he suspected
The MP said Home Minister Rajnath Singh would visit the constituency at the end of this month and is likely to meet the affected families.
Ashok Kumar Raghav, DIG, Saharanpur Range, said, “There is law and order, crime rate is under control. The matter has come to our notice, we are studying this.”
Here is a fine example of the ‘respect’ the Muslim has for India:
Family of Muslims in India REFUSE to stand for the playing of India’s National Anthem – The Hindus Threw Them Out of the PVR Kurla Theatre:

So, what is the moral of this video?
Is it not.. the Hindu people united together as ONE and threw the disrespectful Muslim bastards out?
Just as it was done in this theatre, let it be done in the Hindu Nation of India.
We are Friends and Brothers of the Hindu People…
Their fight is Our Fight!
We are One!
Report: I of II Hindu Priest Hacked to Death
by, bd news24 | h/t Glen Roberts @ Trop
A Hindu priest has been killed in the northwestern Bangladesh district of Jhenaidah in what police suspect to be a militant attack.
The priest Anando Gopal Ganguly was attacked on Tuesday morning by three men, who came on a motorcycle, said Assistant Superintendent of Police Gopinath Kanjilal.
Armed with sharp weapons, the assailants slit 69-year-old Ganguly’s throat around 9:30am while he was on his way to the temple he served.
Kanjilal said that the Ganguly was on his bicycle, when the assailants first hit him on his head with a stick before slaughtering him.
“It seems that militants might be responsible for the killing,” said Kanjilal.
Monitoring group SITE Intelligence reported that Middle East-based Islamic State claimed the murder.
In January this year, homeopath Samir Ali was found murdered inside his chamber in Jhenaidah after unidentified miscreants knifed him to death.
The local Christian community claimed then that Ali preached Christianity after his conversion and that’s why the militants killed him.
IS reportedly claimed responsibility for the killing.
Bangladesh has seen a rise in suspected militant attacks in the last two years targeting bloggers, online activists, members of religious minorities and rights activists.
The IS and the al Qaeda have reportedly claimed responsibilities for many of these attacks.
In the last two days, incidents of two other targeted killings occurred in Bangladesh. In one of them, police suspect militant’s link and IS reportedly claimed the other one.
>> A senior police officer’s wife was stabbed and shot in the head in the port city of Chittagong. Three men,on a motorcycle, attacked her while she was on her way to drop her 6-year-old son to school.
>> The same day, a 60-year-old Christian man in the northern district of Natore was hacked to death inside his shop in a Christian neighbourhood. IS has reportedly claimed the killing.
Law enforcers have been blaming Islamist radicals for the killings in the last two years, mostly in the country’s north-west
In the northern district of Panchagarh, a head priest of a temple was hacked to death. Three assailants on a motorcycle armed with guns and sharp weapons took part in the killing in February this year.
After arresting a few people over the murder, police said that operatives of banned militant outfit Jama’atul Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) were behind it.
Locals managed to nab one of the attackers and police later said that militants were behind it.
On Nov 18 last year, unidentified gunmen on motorcycle shot an Italian priest in Dinajpur town, who had survived the attack.
The 78-year-old, a doctor by profession, served at a local church and worked in a hospital in the northern district town.
On May 21 this year, a 55-year-old homeopath in Kushtia, who preached the syncretic Baul culture, was hacked to death by three men coming on a motorcycle. IS reportedly claimed the killing.
USAID official Xulhaz Mannan and his friend Mahbub Rabbi Tonoy were hacked to death in the capital on Apr 25 this year, when assailants barged into his apartment. Both of them were LGBT rights activists.
SITE Intelligence reported that the al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) claimed the murders.
The AQIS came into spotlight after it claimed the February 2015 murder of writer-blogger Avijit Roy on the Dhaka University campus.
The Bangladesh government have been denying the existence of IS and AQIS in the country and blames ‘home-grown terrorists’ for the killings.

After the near-decapitated body of a 68-year-old Hindu priest was found in western Bangladesh on Tuesday, the local ISIL affiliate claimed responsibility in a communiqué that vowed to “cleanse” the country of “filth.”
It was the latest in a wave of sectarian killings in Bangladesh — many of them attributed to a regional franchise of ISIL that is reportedly led by a Canadian and former southwestern Ontario resident named Tamim Chowdhury.
“He is from Windsor,” said Prof. Amarnath Amarasingam, a post-doctoral fellow at Dalhousie University’s Resilience Research Centre. “People who knew him say he was a quiet guy. Not much else is known about him at the moment.”
According to a report in the Bangladesh newspaper The Daily Star, Chowdhury now uses the alias Shaykh Abu Ibrahim Al-Hanif, who was identified in the latest edition of the ISIL propaganda magazine Dabiq as the “emir” of its branch in Bangladesh.
In the magazine, distributed in April, Al-Hanif comes across as a violent hatemonger, referring to Hinduism as a “filthy, cow-worshipping religion” and threatening to “slaughter” those who did not subscribe to his militant version of Islam.
“We let our actions do the talking,” the lengthy interview quoted him saying. “And our soldiers are presently sharpening their knives to slaughter the atheists, the mockers of the prophet and every other apostate in the region.”
Although not large, the Bangladeshi ISIL branch is believed to have committed more than two dozen murders over the past 18 months, Zayadul Ahsan wrote in the Daily Star, which said some members were veterans of the Syrian conflict.
“Targets of the so-called IS include a wide spectrum of people — Hindu, Christian, Buddhist or Bahai leaders,” as well as Shias, spiritual leaders, university teachers, religious converts and foreigners, among others, Ahsan wrote.
The latest victim was reportedly Ananda Gopal Ganguly, who was riding his bicycle to his temple to conduct a prayer service on Tuesday when three men approached him from behind on a motorcycle and hacked him to death.
Indian diplomats visit Hindu priest murder site:
“He left home this morning saying that he was going to a Hindu house to offer prayers,” the AFP news agency quoted the local deputy police chief, Gopinath Kanjilal, saying. “Later, farmers found his near-decapitated body in a rice field.”
The assassination followed the murders this week of a Christian grocer and the wife of a police officer in the anti-terrorism unit. The regional al-Qaida affiliate, AQIS, is also believed to be behind some of the roughly 40 killings by extremists since last January.
“Soldiers of the Caliphate were able to carry out a security operation in the killing of a polytheist Hindu priest by slaughter,” ISIL said in a statement posted on social media, according to the SITE Intelligence Group. “The knives of the mujahedin will continue to cleanse Bangladesh from the filth of the polytheists and apostates.”
Prof. Amarasingam, who has been researching foreign fighters, said he had heard that Chowdhury had returned home to Bangladesh after complaining about being “harassed” by Canadian police and had subsequently emerged as a leader of the regional ISIL affiliate.
“Bengal is an important region for the Khalifah and the global jihad due to its strategic geographic position,” Al-Hanif said in his Dabiq interview, adding that “having a strong jihadi base in Bengal will facilitate performing guerrilla attacks inside India.”
The terrorist group aspired to “liberate the region,” starting with Pakistan, Afghanistan and Myanmar, he said, claiming the killings in Bangladesh had “brought hope to the Muslims in Bengal after a lengthy pause in jihad in the region.”
About 180 extremists have left Canada to take part in terrorism abroad, the director of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service said in March. Another 60 have returned to Canada and police have prevented dozens more from leaving.
Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale outlined his national security agenda in a blog post this week in which he said the government will soon be collecting basic passport information from those exiting Canada. “This fills a significant security loophole,” he said.
The Liberals had also made arrangements for “stronger co-operation on no-fly lists to deny air travel to those who pose serious risks to aviation security or are likely to travel abroad for the purpose of engaging in terrorism,” he wrote.
A national community outreach and engagement office was to be launched in the summer, he said. “Its purpose will be to develop and coordinate expertise in identifying those who could be vulnerable to the pressures and appeals of radicalization to violence, and to connect with them constructively in advance to head-off tragedies before they happen.”

In order to defeat this common enemy of our’s; the Hindu, the Christian, the Buddhist and all others from the minority communities must unite together as one. One United Coalition must be formed within these minority communities today! Not tomorrow, but today. This is no longer an option or recommendation, but rather a necessity for self-preservation.
A defensive posture must be taken within this NEW ‘Unified Community’ and a line must be drawn in the sand. And anytime this line is crossed by an aggressor, there must be hell to pay. Anytime there is an act of aggression against any ‘one’ member of the ‘Unified Community’ ..it will be perceived and recognized as an act of aggression against ‘all’ in the ‘Unified Community.’ Any initiating/offensive action by a perpetrator or group of perpetrators, with the intent to cause harm and/or that which results in the injury and/or death, to one or more in the ‘Unified Community’ must be met with a swift, decisive and equally harsh response. And this response must be in accordance with “Resolution 10:1”
Resolution 10:1 is a defensive-measure for dealing with unprovoked and unwarranted acts of aggression, with the intended objective being, the halt of all future unwarranted attacks.
An act of aggression against the ‘Unified Community’ must be met with a measured (equivalent) response, that should be directed towards 10 individuals of similar positions within the community from which the initial aggression arose. This MUST be done for each and every act of aggression against the ‘Unified Community’ regardless of the crime.
Then, and only then, will these horrific crimes against our innocent begin to cease.
Who among you are ready to take a leadership role in your community today and make this happen?
- The teenager is alleged to have been caught raping the baby in 2014
- The father lured him away from a court appearance and tied him to a tree
- He beat the younger man and hacked off his hands before abandoning him
- Police now seek the man, who they will charge with attempted murder

A father in India has chopped off the hands of a man who was accused of raping his seven-month-old daughter.
Parminder Singh, 25, is said to have beaten the 17-year old man, tied him to a tree, and hacked off both his hands, before leaving him abandoned next to a canal.
The younger man was accused of molesting a baby in 2014, after allegedly being caught in the act by the baby’s mother.
Police sent him to a juvenile remedial home as he awaited trial.

On April 19, he was making a court appearance in the Bathinda district of Punjab, when the baby’s father apparently lured him away by offering him an out of court settlement.
Swapan Sharma, a senior police officer of Bathinda said: ‘He (the father) took him near a dried up canal, beat him up badly and then tied him to a tree and finally hacked his hands off.
‘Locals alerted police and we rushed to the spot. We picked him up, his hands, and took him to the hospital.’
He confirmed the man was in a stable condition, but said: ‘There is nothing below the wrists now.’
The police said they were now hunting for the father, a brick kiln labourer, who they will charge with attempted murder.
Sexual assault is a prevalent problem in India, with 24,923 cases of rape reported in the country in 2012 alone.
Nearly one in three rape victims are under the age of 18.
The country suffers from a slow, and often corrupt legal justice system, which leads many people to turn to vigilante justice.
In November 2014, a 36-year-old Indian father tortured and killed his daughter’s alleged rapist, who was a tenant in his home, before turning himself in to police.
