The protestors, carrying placards and banners, demanded immediate arrest of the murderers.

Speaking on the occasion, Raj Kumar said it was a conspiracy against the minority communities to compel them to migrate from Sindh.

He said the Thar is a peaceful region of Sindh and there is no communal tension between Hindu and Muslim populations.

He said we are sons of soil and we love our motherland. We will not leave Sindh at any cost. He appealed to the Sindh government and IGP Sindh to take immediate action and ensure arrest of culprits.

DrJiapal said Sindh is the land of Sufis and such crimes would not be tolerated here.

He asked the Sindh government to restore peace in Thar and Mithi areas.
