    Lahore: The Taliban has expelled at least 50 Sikh families from the Orakzai Agency in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) after they failed to pay 'Jazia'. The Taliban had demanded 12 million rupees as protection money from the Sikhs, who have living in the region from hundred of years, but they could arrange only 6.7 million rupees.
    Later, it was reported that the extremists occupied houses and shops of the Sikhs in Qasim Khel and Feroz Khel areas of the Agency and auctioned their valuables for 0.8 million rupees, The Daily Times reports. Earlier, the Taliban had also demolished houses belonging to the Sikh community in the region.


    The Taliban's Orakzai Agency chief Hakeemullah Mehsud ordered the demolition of the houses after the Sikhs failed to meet a deadline fixed for delivering the protection money. According to reports, many tribal families have started migrating to different parts of Hangu and Kohat out of fear of the Taliban action.

    Hi from France
    I'm not a Sikh
    But couldn't Indian Punjab
    create a foundation to help
    such families
    to restart
    Yes I think the future will not be bright

    It's a very sad situation
    My present wife remembers that
    she was killed as a Sikh Woman
    during separation 1947
    She was my sister then.
    I say this because it could give
    confidence and hope !
