"The Hindu community is not afraid...rather they feel helpless and angry," Zohra Yusuf, chairperson of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, told IANS on phone from Islamabad.

She said there is "forcible conversion of young Hindu women" and kidnapping for ransom in Balochistan and Sindh provinces.

"A case of forced conversion went right up to the Supreme Court where the young woman said she wanted to go back with her family," she added.

The human rights activist said Hindus are now demanding a legislation to end conversions.
