This week, bodies of two brothers from Hindu bheel community were found hanging in Jhimpir area of Sindh province.
Another body of a Hindu boy, Rishi, was found in Mithi area of Sindh.
Minorities continue to face atrocities in Pakistan for decades now. The girls from minority communities are forcibly converted to Islam and even members of the minority community get persecuted because of draconian blasphemy laws.
