Dear Arvindji and Gopinathji
Please see an attach file, Today i came back from Lahore and organized the protest on abduction of Hindu girls cases in Pakistan. Recently a minor Hindu girl was raped and then forcefully convert into Islam in Punjab according to local district coordinator of Hare Rama Foundation (HRF). So i and Scheduled Caste Rights Movement (SCRM) members organized a urgently protest on that particular abduction case. During our protest we forward our key demands to members of National Assembly (Parliament) and Provincial Assembly (Punjab) and including to local District Police officer and Regional Police Officer of Bahawalpur City in Pakistan.
On the way of protest we did raised our voice loud against rapist ,We walked around 2Km. then even blocked the main road, there i burned my shirts after that few other peoples also started to burn there Shirts , Hanker Chief, Sweater and Jerseys etc
The results of the protest led the RPO Officer say to us that they will reopen case of abduction of Miss.Kavita Devi (Hindu minor girl).The local administrator promised us that they the will restore the victim girl in 5 days to her original Hindu family.
After that we closed our protest rally and at the end we got good media coverage and some local Muslims backed us by praising SCRM protest rally and me.
NOTE : Mr.Gopinath Kumar condemn the force conversation incident of a minor Hindu girl in Pakistan and demands immediate release of Miss.Kavita Devi from her Muslims rapists back to her Hindu parents. The local police should interfere in the case and Human rights group should take notice on the matter. We sincerely thankful to Rameshji and entire SCRM members for showing such solidarity and encouragement's for a successfully organized protest rally in Pakistan.
