Reading the news item confirmed my belief that pakistan is not safe for minorities. I am sure to leave peaceful life this family has convered. Secodly by giving this news, the newspaper is trying to influence other Hindus also to convert to islam.

I wonder why everyone seems to put up and brag about how many "conversians" there are to Islam as opposed to those who dropped out of it.
I know many who have left the religion and embraced truth-searching, and read about many more who have done the same. It would be interesting to publish these, and study why they do it, then solve the problem in a civilised manner than killing them like uneducated village barbarians would.
That would be true mercy under Islam encouraged by your God and prophet, since many tell me its a religion of mercy and forgiveness when I see few of Muslim followers doing as such without hurling unducated bad words or defending it angrily without giving it thought.

in response to manoj from Pakistan(?!) i would like to clarify that Pakistan is an extremelly tolerant and safe country for all minority faiths as i have seen evident with my own eyes whenever i had the opportunity to visit this beautiful country. i have seen many Sikhs and Christians living in peaceful co-existence and getting on really well with the majority who are Muslims - unlike India which seems to be plagued with communal tensions before and after partition. So please could you Indians stop boasting about how great your Country is when it comes to tolerance and Safety - the world is a big place with hundreds of great, tolerant and safe countries.

Thank you Brother!
