18 Pakistani displaced Hindus living in Jaipur obtained Indian citizenship. District Collector Antar Singh Nehra handed over the certificate of Indian citizenship to displaced Pakistanis. During this time, the Pak displaced Geeta hugged his brother Raja and said crying, “Today we are pleased to obtain citizenship of our country, now our dreams will be realized.” All of these 18 people have lived here since 2005.
She said that despite being a Hindu in Pakistan, our mothers and sisters had to go to the market wearing a burqa. The situations were not right there. She also said that we had stayed here, but we had the tag of being Pakistani. To live in such a situation was very troublesome in the beginning.
At this time, displaced families said that the process of granting citizenship of India to Pakistani displaced persons living in the state must be accelerated. For your information, currently in Rajasthan, in addition to Jaipur, a large number of Pakistani refugees live in Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and Barmer.
