He said that during talks with some of the representatives of Hindu community, the initial findings have been revealed the fact that some Hindu families have left to India for "Yatira" of their holy places, however, some NGOs and a group of media have started posing it as migration from Pakistan following injustices, being committed with them allegedly.
The reports of migration of Hindu community are being propagated without any research from media, the minister said and added that Hindu families who left India for "Yatira" of their holy places have also shown surprised by learning the news about their migration from Pakistan.
