It is pertinent to note that the appalling incident of forced conversion of a Sikh girl happened in a country whose ‘selected’ head of the state, Imran Khan was raising false alarms and creating hysteria over alleged atrocities against minorities in India after Article 370 was abrogated by the Modi government.
