A poster put up by a leader of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s party, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, gives a clear insight into the cruelty minority Hindus in Pakistan face.
It would have gone largely unnoticed, but for a tweet by a Pakistani columnist, Naila Inayat, which has gone viral on social media.
She tweeted the poster that has an inflammatory and hateful slogan against Hindus in Pakistan. ‘Hindu baat se nahin, laat se manta hai,’ reads the poster. It translates to ‘Hindus understand the language of violence, not dialogue.’

The poster also bears the pictures of Imran Khan and founder of Pakistan Mohammad Ali Jinnah.
In yet another video, Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief minister Mahmood Khan, who is also from Imran’s party, can be seen calling Hindus and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘darinde’ (brutal beasts or predators).

Hindus in Pakistan are under severe attacks from Islamists and are facing savage persecution. Recently, two underage Hindu girls were abducted in the Sindh province and were forcibly converted and married off to older Muslim men.
