SINDH- FROM RINKLE KUMARI TO MIGRATION OF HINDUS

SINDH-   FROM RINKLE KUMARI TO MIGRATION OF HINDUS

AN ARTICLE BY  VEENGAS

Have you ever been abandoned ?

Have you ever felt the trauma of

Being abandoned and forced immigrate to foreign land ?

You can’t feel of their emotions as you never been forced to immigrate

You never have been forced to give up right to live in your land

How could you feel as I feel if you are not abandoned?

Or forced to immigrate!

Why shall I detail my agony to somebody

Who had never been gone through the pain that I had to go through

You’ve  never been with broken hearts

Its we,

Who are abandoned, condemned, forced to immigrate & forced to survive heartbroken

Some day even the goddess of time will have some pity on us!

May this happen I would ask to exactly this “Have you been forced to immigrate?”

-(Halina)

Sindh is that very land where you can expect anything from freedom of being free from living heartbroken. This land has every emotion!

Once again Sindh is going through the trauma of migration and heart-broken emotions of innocent indigenous inhabitants. Have we ever bothered to feel what Sindh have been going through ? May be our own pains are too much to divert our attention to others. Leave apart sympathizing we are not even feel the reason behind even to hear what the hell is going on with them!

I still remember my childhood  when mom  would speak of entire world of some sort of Global village for humanity but never missed to used that land on which we grew up from infancy to  the adult , how come we could forget the natural bond that land!! The bond between the land and people are such which cannot cast off no matter how much hard one tries. But notwithstanding such time tasted laid out laws of nature something is indeed going on in some of our hearts who are bend upon speeding hostility for love.

I still lament of the fact that how we compromise promptly hatred for love or peace which has the potential of isolating them from the rest. But needless to say it is those people who are to suffer the most of this man-made isolation.

These are same hands that are making mess of Sindh. They  believe they are indeed powerful and can indeed impose a change on us. Had any ever been told time spares none !!

We have been watching silently as indigenous inhabitants of Sindh viz  Sindhi Hindus are being tormented. Why this have been happening ? What are the reasons behind it ? I had never ever  denied that Sindhi Hindus (Although I don’t prefer to use the word “Sindhi Hindu”. They are the indigenous son of the soil then why they should be referred as Sindhi Hindus and not as just Sindhis) have been troubled and forced to pay Bhatta (Protection money to the local mafia).  But despite this they choose to stay in their mother land expecting   that such issue would pass by with the passage of time and above all with the hope  that one should not abandon the land of their forefathers

As they have been facing each day with vigor what all off happened they have been migrating …Time is indeed ruthless as well as unpredictable! Hypocrisy & atrocities might now be practiced by majority but those practice it are indeed powerful who have been giving free hand to terrorize minorities in any possible form. There are not even questioned by rule of land as why such crimes are being perpetuated ?  When such perpetuators of crimes roam free, the tormented even being a majority feel beleaguered. This is what been happening in Sindh. A meticulously planned game is being played in Sindh which might seem invisible to us may be we tend not to break our silence.

I have been writing in Daily Ibarat since the last three years that Hindus are being tormented and with time they might be forced to vacate sindh, not only this but Sindhi Hindus had to get out of their  ever shrinking space and should stake their claim of ownership of Sindh. If house-owners helplessly gives up and prefers to migrate who will confront the perpetuators? They seem to be bit too ready to give up our claim !!

Nevertheless, In Sindh Hindus have been tormented by killings or by Kidnappings. The precedence of CHAK (Near Sharkarpur where 4 Hindu Doctors were shot dead in their clinic) is before us- Despite head of the state taking stern notice, killers were freed. Not only this had an high raking police officer confirm in anonymity of intense pressure to free the killers and force Hindus to migrate from Sindh.

One of the reason of deteriorating condition had been near pin drop silence of Political parties on  Chak incident. Why this happened ? Sindhi Hindus have been forced to migrate yet non of the so called sindhi parties bother to break roza of their silence!! I fail to comprehend weather these parties belong to sindh or to somewhere else ?

Post Chak no mass migration was noticed among Hindus but then what the hell happened all of sudden that set cat among the pigeons !!!! In any case there had been dozen of cases involving Hindu Girls. Let us take the case of Rinkle Kumari where the girl begged to go with her parents from Lower courts to highest count on the land. Even CJ Pakistan at an  occasion did clarify to Noved Shah (Her Kidnapper) that this case is clear cut that the girl wished to go with her mother.!!!!

Alas! From Rinkle kumari to Asha Kumari none of the political parties or any organization did ever bothered to take up her their case !!!

Almost all the political parties choose remain mute claiming Rinkle Issue of being a “Love Affair” Had they fought the case of Hindu Kidnapped with vigor it would had indeed added a new lease of live to an dormant Sindh. Surprisingly nobody bothered to question the verdict of CJ Pakistan why Rinkle & Asha were bluntly denied Justice ?

Question arises why did the sindh based parties backtracked? Whom they were trying to protect ??

In case the parties have been claiming that this is a mare case of three Girls and haven won’t fall apart  if we don’t intervene then it is quite obvious that they do not have any feel of the days to come. Those who remain silent,  are they not aware what the hell have been happening in sindh since the incidents of through Chak till that of Rinkle Kumari as what & why such games are being staged ?

When we have been writing that sindh should understand that such cases are not simple the mare cases of ad hoc killing and abduction, the sindh based parties not only remain silent mute spectators of the drama that was being unfolded but allowed all to happen.

Today when we are witnessing en mass migration of Hindus from Sindh, all off sudden they seem to wake up from slumber to raise hue & cry of Hindu migration and its effect of Sindh!!!.

Today the issue is not of condemning the stud silence of Sindhi parties but to take charge where these parties have made the mess with the view that they come to their senses. But despite all our clarion call these parties refuse to mend their laid out ways even from the prospective of Human Rights leave apart agony of Sindh from Chak to Rinkle kumari cases.

Sindh nationalist no more have the spine or fire power  that we had noticed in the past and  more importantly they show neither promise nor and potential to take up the challenge that Sindh is up to.

They have indeed limited  themselves of  protest which hardly lasts couple of days  before returning to their self imposed dormancy. Not to forget the ruling party which never bothered to even pull up its minister as on basis he is keeping Hindu girls in his custody ?

What are the reasons of such mass migration of Hindus from Sindh ?

I see two reasons one is to destroy Sind’s economy and other is to damage Sindhi Vote bank. If Hindus (Sindh’s Sindhi Business community) migrate Sind’s hold on Market in sindh would eventually suffer . If Hindus migrate Sindhi votes too would get a beating for sure and their majority would be hit pretty badly.

If we haven’t forgotten than let us remember 2010-11 when sindhi vote-bank took a bodyblow durning to successive Floods which led to migration of Sindhis within Sindh now with Hindu Migration form Sindh situation is obviously expected to get worse !!

Behind the Curtin there are no dearth of conspiracy which want to want sindh to loose its majority to the migrated ones – a process which is indeed running in its full swing!!

Coincidently the issues no matter how insignificant they seem but enough to bring havoc for sindhis in days to come. This is the reason why we need to get to the bottom of such issues

Alas! Sindhis could understand that migration of Hindus is not a mare issue for Hindus but is linked with the future of Sindh in days to come . “Fear for that day you Sindhis when we will have contest only for the reserved seats in your Sindh aka present day Hindu Sindhis”

But millon dollar question is how come Hindus forget what they have been taught in GITA!! Where soul is dedicated karma (service) . One should not bother about end result. Today Sindh is in pains where no body seem to be secure and under such circumstances if we migrate believing that our lives are not same, had anybody ever comprehend as what would be the condition of Sindh in days to come ??

We  all have failed to see Sindh its eyes ?

Although there no denying of the fact  that migration is painful under any circumstances but none the less in such an blind pursuit are we now leaving helpless & condemned  ?

LETER FROM DR RAJ KUMAR, MATERNAL UNCLE OF RINKLE KUMARI

URGENT LETER FROM DR RAJ KUMAR, MATERNAL UNCLE OF RINKLE KUMARI, ON 30TH APRIL 2012 PUBLISHED IN AWAMI AWAZ AND OTHER PAPERS

Rinkle’s Unkle Raj Kumar

“18th April decision of the bench headed by the Chief Justice Pakistan, Justice Iftikhar Chowdhury, in Rinkle Kumari Case, has made a murder of justice in a same manner as Justice Moulvi Mushtaq case did in Zulifqar Ali Bhutto case. On 18th April it was generally believed by the world and particularly in Sindh that Supreme Court of Pakistan after hearing the cries which Rinkle made and the statement she gave in the Supreme Court on 26th March, in which she had said that she by choice prefers to go with her mother, and also on 10th April Supreme Court by rejecting to hear the petition of Naveed Shah, thus was again reinforcing a hope for the oppressed Hindu minority of Sindh that Supreme Court will look into their ordeal with fairness.

On 18th April the tea break began at 11:00 AM which normally is for half an hour was prolonged to one and half an hour. At about 12:45 PM when Lata and Rinkle were brought before the court, Rinke stared to her parents and begged by folding her two hands, showing chit in her hand. The bench comprised on three judges started hearing the case of kidnapped Hindu girls, and without being heard the kidnapped girls’ statement in the court, the Court announced that all three Hindu girls have converted in Islam and the police may take them and ask them where they want to go and thus leave them to that address.

Such decision of court is beyond our mind’s eye. After all what pressure did chief justice was fraught with that he altogether ignored to the statement Rinkle Kumari gave on 26th March before this bench of Supreme Court of Paksitnan? It was such a statement of Rinkle Kumari, whose acknowledgement was made by no one else but the CJP himself on 10th April while rejecting the petition of Naveed Shah?

Prior this decision of Supreme Court of Pakistan on 27th March the Meerpur Mathelo town was cordoned off by the police and thus made impossible for the family of Rinkle Kumari and the Hindu community to reach to local court, and her so called confessional statement u/s 164 Cr.P.C was said as recorded before the magistrate. At that time hundreds of armed men under the command of Mian Mitho of Bharchondi and his sons were present in the court and kept it under its siege. After that they got Rinkle along by holding her neck and one arm tight. After that, it was announced she has become Muslim with so rejoice, that it was looking as if they had conquered an enemy’s country.

A few days after this incidence Mian Mitho, MNA PPP has himself admitted the fact before a pvt channel that after the request of the Police he had taken the responsibility of security of the local court when Rinkle was produced before the court. By such statement of him it appears that he wanted to say that the responsibility of providing the security in Ghotki District is not a job of Police or Rangers or any official department but it is a responsibility of Mian Mitho of Bharchondi.

Before this statement of Mian Mitho, his son Mian Aslam is also on record saying to pvt channel that it was he who brought Rinkle in his custody on 25th Febuary, from Ghotki to Sukkur. In nutshell in all court appearances of Rinkle from Mir Pur Mathelo, Ghotki, Sukkur to Sindh High Court Karachi it was Mian Mitho who brought Rinkle in his custody and yet every time police claims that it was police under whose custody was Rinke produced before every court.

It is a open secret that when Rinkle was made to have a press conference in Karachi Press Club on 11th March, she went in the custody of the persons of given by Mian Mitho of Bharchondi. After getting confused seeing the quality of the questions of the journalists they quickly got Rinkle from her Arm and left the Press Club Karachi. This fact is also acknowledged in the reporting of BBC, Daily Dawn and Awami Awaz.

This is also fact that we had shown confidence before the court in the Shelter House headed by Justice(R) Majida Rizvi. But after the program of Hina Gillani on Dawn Tv it was unearthed before us that one cannot rely on any women shelter of this country, it is fact that these women shelter homes are virtual brothels. And that was why Rinkle Kumari before Supreme Court of Pakistan was crying in a fit of hysteria that she should not be sent to any women shelter home and said “ I will die but not go to shelter home, I will not get justice in this country”

All these facts mentioned above are stored in our mind like a horror movie. This has turned our sleeps into a nightmare, but if even a little smaller incidence had occurred to any girl of affluent family this must not have had happened to her. But unfortunate Rinkle was neither a daughter of any Feudal lord, or if any Peer, but she was a daughter of primary teacher and more worst is also that the teacher father of Rinkle Kumari is also a Hindu.

And also the decision of Supreme Court of Pakistan without having had heard the girls in the witness box tells the fact that these courts are also religiously influenced. Otherwise it is impossible that court could give custody of kidnapped Rinkle back to kidnappers and the police who were also part of the crime against her. The criminal role of police who were in connivance with kidnappers is subjudice in the Sindh High Court.
Before the Registrar Office Rinkle Kumari had said to Comrade Amar Lal that right from Ghotki to Sukkur to Karachi in all the criminal activity she was made subject to along with Mian Mitho of Bharchondi and her sons the police had also been doing same with her. Rinkle also told to comrade Amar Lal in the Supreme Court she is drowsy because of the injection passed in her.

The chit that was passed in the hand of Rinkle was made through police, in which her statement was drafted which she gave in the registrar office as her statement.
In 1947 it was not all voluntarily migration of Hindus, the same tactics were applied also at that time too to make forced migration of Hindus. And same conspiracy has been again made against Hindus this time to force them to migrate. If all Hindus are forced to migrate what will happen of those Mulim patriot Sindhis than, perhaps all decisions this time may take place against them also.

It is very unfortunate that sindhi politicians, journalist and writers are criminally silent on the injustice, abuses inflicted on the Sindhi Hindus. Today when they are silent Rinkle Kumari is still looking for the space and passage that she can come back to her parents. Like daring and bold historic character of Marvi she is not ready to succumb before the tyrants. She is still in struggle against them to get free. Which also is vindicated from the fact that she did not talk even she was forced in one tv program, which fact has also been acknowledged by some newspapers.

Our struggle to get Rinkle Kumari free from Bharchondis is on and shall continue till we achieve her freedom. I urge upon all the forums of human rights in the world and in this country to please come forward and highlight the ordeal of Sindhi Hindus who due to predetermined prejudice mindset, are been forced and subject to live under oppression or leave the country.”
