ISLAMABAD - The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan reportedly has accused Pakistani military of having links with Islamic Jihadi groups.
The commission also said attacks on minorities in Pakistan, especially on Hindus in the Sindh province continues without let up, reports the Press Trust of India news agency.
"The lack of action after the excesses committed by the female students of the Jamia Hafsa in Islamabad exposes the deep-rooted links between the military and religious jihadi groups in the country," the commission said.
The reference was to the recent abduction of three women by girl students of the madrassa who accused the captives of running a brothel. The women were later freed.
The commission also said "the dire warnings of forced 'Islamisation,' suicide attacks and the setting up of a 'Qazi' court by the clerics running the controversial Lal Masjid is Islamabad are even grimmer," PTI reported.
About the minorities, the commission said, "False cases have been registered against Hindus in Sindh, where they have been especially targeted as a means of political victimization," PTI reported. The report said attacks on minorities have included forced conversions, especially of young women.
