However, during the last five months, her pleas went unheeded.

Now Veengas has again tweeted a video clip in which she is shown saying that she is not a Muslim and that she wants to go home.

Abduction and forced conversion of Hindu and Christian women in Pakistan is a routine affair and no one pays any attention to it.

In Pakistan, the number of Hindus, Sikhs and Christians has gone down drastically. In 1947 the population share of minorities in Pakistan was 23%. However, within a few decades it has now gone down to mere 3-4%. Most have been either forcefully converted or forced to flee and seek shelter in India.

Pakistan, since after its formation, has killed millions of Hindus systematically. In the erstwhile Bangladesh, its Army massacred and raped lakhs of Hindus and forced them to flee as refugees.

However, the world has hardly taken any notice of the cruelties perpetrated on the minorities of Pakistan since its formation.

Even the Indian government has failed to highlight the issue. The issue has always been brought out by stray videos tweeted by a few Human Right workers or by social media users.

Veengas J, who has highlighted the case of Reena Meghwar is a journalist and editor-in-chief at The Rise News, covering on Politics, Human Rights, Minorities and Terrorism.

However, not too many Pakistanis have retweeted or lent support to her requests to help the Hindu girl pleading for help in going home.

Not a single mainstream journalist of Pakistan has raised the issue or even supported Veengas J on the issue.

Torture of Hindus and Sikhs in Pakistan is treated as a normal affair and always dismissed as something that is not worth paying attention.

Veengas has been reporting on minority issue especially on Forced Conversion, human rights, and internal conflicts.
