(Photo 2008 : Karachi, The courtyard of the Swami Narayan temple was echoing with the voice of the pundit reciting the holy mantra in Sanskrit. Women wearing banarsi saris were sitting on chairs and children were surprised to 20 brides and grooms sitting in mandaps which were arranged for a typical Hindu wedding and a pundit was instructing the couples over a loudspeaker to start making rounds around the holy fire. Then the groom put the mangalsutar around the bride’s neck and he put sindoor in the bride’s maang, completing the marriage rituals.)
New Delhi : Expressing concern over recent attack on Hindu minority in Pakistan's southern Sindh province, VHP on Wednesday requested External Affairs Minister S M Krishna, who is on a three-day visit to that country, to raise the matter with Pakistani authorities.

"We expect our External Affairs Minister to take up the issue of attack on Hindus in Sindh province with his Pakistani counterpart," president of Jammu and Kashmir unit of VHP Ramakant Dubey told reporters here.

Krishna should also take up the issue of decrease of Hindu population in Pakistan, he said.

It is unfortunate that the Hindu population in Pakistan has shrunk to nine lakh from 90 lakh in 1947, he said, adding that Krishna should ask Pakistan what steps it has taken to protect the Hindus in the country.

Dubey said talks are meaningless between the two countries unless interests of Hindus in Pakistan are not protected.

On July 12, about 60 Hindu men, women and children were forced to abandon their homes at Memon Goth in Karachi, the capital of Sindh, after influential tribesmen of the area objected to a boy drinking water from a cooler outside a mosque.

On Kashmir situation, Dubey said the government should act sternly against the terrorists and separatists who are out to disturb peace in the state.
