According to reports, Hindus in Pakistan continue to suffer from forced conversions and discrimination against them.
Though there are no confirmed statistics on forced conversions, the above are unofficial estimates based on other reports.

The practice which is hardly talked about, also means that Hindu girls, particularly who are minor, are now forcibly divorced from their religion and subjugated to remain separated from their families.

The issue was recently brought to light by Pakistan Tekreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Hindu lawmaker Lal Chand Malhi who is serving as MNA on a minority seat.
He over the months has been arguing in the Pakistani Parliament for the need to pass and implement legislation on forced conversions.

While discussing the topic, Malhi even pointed out that forced conversions have become a matter of routine in some parts of the country and that a significant portion of Pakistani Hindus belonged to the lower Hindu castes.
The above thus clearly exposes the Pakistani government’s indifference among its own countrymen.
