Hindus comprise roughly 1.85% of Pakistan’s inhabitants in a single research however in response to the Pakistan. Hinduism is the second largest faith in Pakistan after Islam. As of 2010, Pakistan had the fifth largest Hindu inhabitants on the earth and PEW predicts that by 2050 Pakistan can have the fourth largest Hindu inhabitants on the earth. Nevertheless, round 5,000 Hindus migrate from Pakistan to India yearly.
After Pakistan gained independence from Britain on 14 August 1947, 4.7 million of the nation’s Hindus and Sikhs migrated to India. The 1998 census of Pakistan recorded lower than 2.5 million Hindus. The overwhelming majority of Hindus in Pakistan are concentrated in Sindh province.
In 1947, Hindus constituted 12.9% of Pakistan, which made Pakistan (together with current day Bangladesh) the second largest Hindu-population nation after India.
Within the 1951 census, West Pakistan had 1.6% Hindu inhabitants, whereas East Pakistan (fashionable Bangladesh) had 22.05%.
When Bangladesh gained its independence, the proportion fell to 1.6% as can be case for the reason that Hindus in East Pakistan have been residents of Bangladesh. And, what quantity of share remained in Pakistan? 1.6%.
So, it isn’t like an enormous chunk of Hindus left Pakistan. That is mainly a misinformation instructed to the Indian (and Hindu) communities as propaganda to gas Pak-India hatred.
Now, I don’t recommend that there are not any circumstances of Hindus being mistreated or being discriminated towards. There are small-minded, irrational folks in each group around the globe. And, whereas their actions needs to be condemned and stopped, Pakistan shouldn’t be the worst nation for discrimination of any variety. A minimum of, I hope that anybody studying this, stops spreading this inaccurate information–despite no matter views they maintain about Pakistan and its remedy of non-Muslims.
There’s a distinction between fiction and truth, we must always hold it that means.
