The sources said thatHindu families from Pakistan continue to migrate to India for permanent settlement. Hailing from Pakistan, Dilip and Mukesh, both brothers, were willing to lead their marriage party to Sriganganagar from Jodhpur for their marriage and sought the permission from authorities. But the authorities refused to oblige them and said that it was against visa rules.
“We have granted permission to both the youth following the court directives,” says superintendent of police (CID), Jodhpur, Mr Sachin Mittal. The family had migrated from Pakistan to India some time back and the rest of the family had already got Indian citizenship. But Dilip and Mukesh could not get it. “Everyone in life dreams for a lavish wedding function, but we spent our time in anxiety,” says a member of the groom’s family. “We struggle every time to obtain a permission for marriage. Two Pakistani Hindus have been languishing in jail as they were arrested for violating visa rules while visiting a border district to find a suitable match for their daughter,” says Mr Sodha.
According to the SLS, Arjun and his son Khuman visited Bikaner from Jodhpur to find a suitable match for a girl. But the police arrested them for violating visa rules.

Mr.Hindu Singh Sodha says Give Indian citizenship to Pakistani Hindus, Because this refers to the report Pakistani Hindus launch fight to ascertain identity (IE, May 20). Hundreds of Pakistani Hindus have visited India on valid passports from time to time. Many have been residing in India for more than ten years and should be given Indian citizenship. Lakhs of Bangladeshis have, on the other hand, migrated to India illegally. Internal position of Pakistan is not good and according to the media, Hindus are humiliated there. The Taliban has also imposed Jaziya (religious tax) on Hindus and other communities in some areas. According to a notification by the Ministry of Home Affairs, Pakistani Hindus can be given citizenship under some rules.
