Islamabad: Pakistan’s most prominent opposition face and Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has voiced concern over the alleged forcible conversion of Hindu girls in the country’s Sindh province.

"What are we doing to Hindus in Sindh? Their girls are being forcibly converted into Islam. What kind of shabab are they (converters) getting?" Khan said while addressing the Ulema Mashaikh conference in Islamabad Wednesday evening.

The PTI chief asserted that forced conversion to Islam violates the principles of Quran.

"Hindus are fleeing the country," he further stated.

Urging people to unite, Khan stressed that Islam stands for humanity.

Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP), in its 2012 report, claimed that around 20 to 25 Hindu girls are being forcibly converted to Islam every month in the southern Sindh province.
