Every year more than 2.5 lac Hindu yatrees (pilgrims) from all across the Indian Subcontinent come to honor Hinglaj Mata which starts from the very remote area of Lyari Lakra, Winder, Hingol National Park, Chandurgup and Ganesh Mud Valcano, Aghor Nadi to Hinglaj Nani Mandir in the province of Balochistan. This yatra marks as the largest Hindu yatra (pilgrimage) in any Muslim majority region, and this is all happening in Pakistan.

Hindu community from all over World and from the country as well perform their annual rituals with no fear and no restrictions here in Pakistan, Which is one of the fine example of fulfilling the Human Rights and the freedom which Pakistan has given to other religion beside being a Majority Muslim country, Here in Pakistan each and every religion is equal rather it is Sikhism, Buddhism, Christianity or Hinduism, These Minorities are the major cultural mole on cheek of Pakistan.

Muslim natives of this region understand all the significance of this yatra for Hindu community, therefore, have never let political tensions across the borders affect their help and support for Hindu Yatrees.

As Hafsat Abolia quotes:
“Peace comes from being able to contribute the best that we have, and all that we are, toward creating a world that supports everyone. But it is also securing the space for others to contribute the best that they have and all that they are.”

During this journey many yatrees were thankful to the locals for all the facilities despite belonging to a low income group who are barely able to meet the needs of their own.
The Yatrees marked their words for Pakistan as
“Pakistan has made us feel so independent giving the rights and freedom which we cannot have in any other country having majority of Hindu population or even in any other place in this world, We are so proud to be Pakistani Hindu Community and we have never ever feel different on the basis religion, cast, creed or color, May Mata Bless our Pakistan.”
