Despite being the emerging hotspot for the COVID-19 cases, Pakistan has not shed away from its derogatory politics that uses religion as an excuse to carry out its extremism especially against the religious and ethical minorities.
The COVID-19 outbreak has ransacked Pakistan to quite an extent and several have been impacted by the pandemic within its coercive borders. The Pakistani authorities have been trying to provide some respite to those impacted with the outbreak of the pandemic but to the dismay of all could not shed away with religion-based politics.
People belonging to the Hindu community were denied food supplies and daily essentials at Rehrri Ghoth in Karachi. The distribution of essential supplies among daily wage workers and labourers through local NGOs and district administration was ordered by the Sindh government.
The supplies were meant only for Muslims, and people belonging to the Hindu community were denied eligibility. Hindus in Lyari, Sachal Ghoth and other parts of Karachi as well as all over Sindh are being denied a share in government food.
The COVID-19 outbreak in Pakistan has unveiled its dirty politics and hypocrisy with the rights of minorities being drastically impacted.
