QUETTA: In yet another incident of kidnapping in Balochistan, the son of a well-known Hindu trader was abducted by a group of armed men in Naushki on Monday evening. Sixteen-year-old Rajiv Sagar had just closed his warehouse and was returning home, when a group of men whisked him away at gun point. Police say it is a case of kidnapping for ransom.

Earlier on Saturday, a Hindu shopkeeper Dilip Kumar was kidnapped from Sohbatpur.

As many as five people from the Hindu Community are still in the captivity of kidnappers, including the Maharaja of the Historic Kali Mandir of Kalat, Luckmi Chand Garji.

    Hindus have lived in Pakistan since before the arrival of Muslims or even Islam. They have every right to remain in Pakistan in peace. Hindus have contributed to the economy of this country specially that of Karachi and parts of Balochistan including Kolpur. Unfortunately, they are being now dragged from their ancient homelands. That makes me sick. And more so because the local Muslim population have lost concern for them. This is a dangerous state of affairs. We are killing our multi-cultural ism. Recommend
