In a press conference held here on Thursday, the SCRM pleaded with parliamentarians and concerned citizens to give Hindus the same treatment as other communities vis-a-vis their right to register marriages. They warned the government that they would launch a forceful campaign if it failed to protect their basic rights, particularly that of marriage registration.
Hindu women, hailing from different parts of the country, expressed regret over the government's failure to end injustice against the poor women of the Hindu community. They alleged that they were being discriminated against in the right to possess Computerized National Identity Cards (CNIC), which, in their view, was congruent with a denial of their basic rights of citizenship.
