These doctors were murdered because “local Hindu boys brought a Muslim dancing girl to the area.” Islamic law forbids a Muslim woman from marrying a non-Muslim man — and apparently even if she just dances with one, people are going to get killed. “Three Hindu doctors gunned down on Eid, Sindh observes mourning,” from AFP, November 8 (thanks to Kapil):
SHIKARPUR: Gunmen shot dead three Hindus in Shikarpur in a dispute over a dancing girl with a local Muslim tribe, officials said on Tuesday.
The incident took place on Monday in Chak town near Shikarpur city, 400 kilometres north of Karachi, the capital of southern Sindh province.
“Two men riding a motorbike opened fire at a clinic, killing three Hindu doctors and wounding a paramedic seriously,” Pakistan Hindu Council chief Ramesh Kumar told AFP.
He said the dispute had erupted between the Hindu community and the local Baban Khan Bhayo tribe after local Hindu boys brought a Muslim dancing girl to the area.
“Police raided the house where the girl was dancing and arrested four boys,” said Kumar.
He said that the issue had been taken to the local assembly of elders to be resolved peacefully after the ongoing Eid holidays, but before that could happen the shooting took place, he said.
Kumar said the Hindu community had sought protection from police after receiving anonymous calls threatening them with “serious consequences”….
The kidnapping of Hindus have been on the rise, especially in the province of Balochistan where at least four Hindu traders have been kidnapped in the past 30 days, while Basant Lal, a paint shop owner, was was abducted while on his way home to Saryab Road from Liaquat Bazaar on Friday.
