Hindus who had migrated to India from Pakistan want to return back home due to human right violations, mistreatment, and violence against women and children in the neighboring country,  Pakistan's National Commission for Minorities (NCM) chairman Chela Ram Kewalani said.

He also said in the meeting that he chaired on Wednesday that “issues faced” by religious minorities in Pakistan needs to be addressed and that their places of worship should be protected. 

“India should stop violating human rights. We have reports from the Hindus who had migrated from Pakistan to India that they want to return to the home country due to human rights violations, discriminations, mistreatment and a massive crime against women and children there,” Kewalani was quoted by the Dawn newspaper.

Stressing that the “protection of the minorities is the state’s responsibility,” he added: “We have to work together with all stakeholders and authorities concerned to protect the places of worship of all minorities in the country.”

The members said that the minorities would be granted their rights in the country and the commission would use its capabilities to promote inter-faith harmony in Pakistan.

In the meeting, the protests by Indian farmers over the controversial farm bills were also discussed and condemned.
