Join Hudson Institute’s Aparna Pande and Nina Shea and expert panelists Daud Khattak, Deepali Kulkarni, and Farahnaz Ispahani for a discussion on the difficulties faced by Pakistan’s Hindu minority.
Hindus comprise approximately 2 percent of Pakistan’s 210 million population and live primarily in the southern province of Sindh, which for centuries has been a religious melting pot. In recent years, reports by civil society organizations, international human rights groups, and even the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan have documented a rise in the forced conversion of Hindus in Pakistan—especially by targeting young Hindu girls through forced marriages and kidnappings. What can be done to stop this religious persecution? Join Hudson Institute for this important discussion.
