A Pakistani Store Is Selling Footwear With ‘Om’ Engraved On It Despite Objection From Hindus

Updated on 7 July, 2016 at 4:51 pm By

The condition of Hindus and other minorities in Pakistan is not hidden from anyone. So it was not a surprise for anyone when the news of sale of footwear with the Hindu holy symbol of ‘Om’ engraved on it surfaced.

According to all Pakistani media outlets, Pakistan Hindu Council patron-in-chief and Member of National Assembly (MNA) Dr Ramesh Kumar Vankwani pointed out that for the last three years, the sale of such footwear has been going on in Tando Adam in the Sindh province of Pakistan.

“The purpose is just to insult the sentiments of local Hindus,” Dr Ramesh told The Nation demanding immediate ban.

The Pakistan Hindu Council said that the footwear was being sold by the First Step Shoe Store in Karachi’s famous Park Tower Shopping Mall.



The store has 14 branches all over Pakistan where such shoes are sold. Their sales double during the month of Ramzan, shortly before Eid.

Karachi-based All Pakistan Hindu Panchayat (APHP) has demanded that the owner of the store stops the sale but, according to reports, the brazen owner has allegedly threatened to throw them out of the showroom.

The police has been notified but no action has been taken so far.

Dr Ramesh said that incidents such as these result into an atmosphere of fear, insecurity and distrustfulness.
