Pakistani Hindus fear forced conversion of young girls

Hindus account for a little over one percent of the population of Pakistan.

However, the community claims that even this number is dwindling because girls are being kidnapped, converted to Islam and forcibly married to Muslim men.

Human rights organisations warn that such incidents are on the rise and is urging the government to take action to protect the country's minorities.
