The student says, ‘I am from the Hindu community, I am Sindhi. We were celebrating Holi comfortably, when the people of Jamiat came and started troubling us. Girls were playing Holi with us, they beat them up. I have to say that every religion in Pakistan celebrates its festivals comfortably, like Eid etc. then why can’t we celebrate Holi?’ Pakistani journalist Veengas tweeted that instead of taking action against Jamiat students who attacked Sindhi Hindus, both Karachi and Panjab University are denying the violent incident.
Atrocities on Hindus in Pakistan
He wrote, ‘Video is in front in which a Sindhi Hindu girl is telling what happened in Karachi University. In another video from Panjab University, a student of Panjab University narrates the incident including the students being thrashed. But Panjab University has indirectly pointed fingers at Sindh Student Council in PU by saying ‘a Muslim group from another province’. The recent violent incidents on Holi in Pakistan are a living proof of the condition of the minorities in the neighboring country.
15 students injured
Veenagas wrote, ‘Punjab University Administration has a record of ‘not protecting’ students belonging to other provinces. On the occasion of Holi, the administrator has played a dirty game. We have no hope in Punjab to take action against Jamiat students, but we hope Sindh government will take some action. 15 Hindu students were injured in the clash at Panjab University. The students claim that they had taken prior permission for this from the university administration.
