Police said the murder was part of a “wave of targeted killings.” Hmmm. Is that like an earthquake or a tsunami? Or is there some human agent behind such a wave? And who, who, who could be killing Hindus in Pakistan? What a great mystery!
“Hindu man gunned down in Pak,” from PTI, February 6 (thanks to S.V.):
ISLAMABAD: A Hindu man was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in Quetta city of southwest Pakistan today, police said.
The gunmen, who were in a car, fired indiscriminately at the man, identified as Rajesh Kumar….
No group claimed responsibility for the killing. The motive behind the killing could not immediately be ascertained.
Police contended it was part of a wave of targeted killings that has rocked Quetta and other parts of the restive Balochistan province.
Hmmm. Targeted killings by whom? What a mystery!
Dozens of Hindus have been kidnapped for ransom in Balochistan, including 82-year-old spiritual leader Luckmi Chand Garji.
Reports from Quetta have said that over 20 Hindu families from the province have sent applications to the Indian High Commission seeking asylum in India.
