    i dont think they have been forcefully converted… i personally know many sindhi hindus who converted to islam with their free will. but the main problem is most born sindhi muslims dont treat the new muslims.. they still give them bad treatment as like they never converted .. !

    They converted because they knew staying Hindu would not bode well for them.
