Islamabad: Human Rights Commission of Pakistan has condemned the attack and destruction of the houses of Christian and Hindu communities in the nation's Bahawalpur region.

"HRCP is gravely concerned at reports that houses belonging to the Hindu and Christian communities of #Yazman in #Bahawalpur have been demolished, allegedly by local authorities with political influence," the Commission tweeted.

The violence was witnessed in Pakistan even at a time when the world is battling COVID-19 outbreak.

The entire episode was caught on camera where houses belonging to the Hindu community were razed to the ground.

What's even more shocking is, the demolition of walls and roofs over people's head were crushed under the watch of Tariq Bashir Cheema, the Housing Minister in the Imran Khan cabinet, who was accompanied by the country's Principal Information Officer Shahid Khokhar, reports ANI news agency.

Bulldozers could be seen destroying the houses as children and women pleaded for mercy.

Torture on minority have been reported from Pakistan even in these months of COVID-19 outbreak.

Uncounted incidents are reported from Sindh province and other parts of Pakistan where Muslims have forcibly abducted and converted Hindu minor girls to Islam for marriage, reports ANI.
