According to dawn news in every year 5000 Hindus are migrating to different regions. Minorities are moving towards another country due to intolerance, threatening, diminishing the worship places of minorities [5-8].
Minorities are generating the revenue in Sindh whereas most of the Hindus are businessmen, Doctors, Engineers and land lord but due to intolerance by fanatic it is highly impact on the Minority group. They feel unsafe in this country, this is the only reason that minorities from Interior Sindh they mostly migrated to other regions and Indian Government has clearly declared that most of people are belong from Sindh and Balochistan Province.
