Hindu devotees worship at the Manher Mandir temple in Karachi by lighting sticks of incense on the altar and praying.
Hindus make up 2.5 per cent of the 174 million people living in Pakistan.
Over 90 per cent live in Sindh, where they are generally wealthy and enterprising, making them easy prey for criminal gangs.
According to the Pakistan Hindu Seva, a community welfare organisation, at least 10 families have migrated from Sindh every month since 2008, mostly to India, but in the last 10 months, the number has increased to 400 families. — Photos by AFP
