This city of Pakistan is an example of religious tolerance
The population of Hindus in Pakistan has decreased significantly. When Pakistan became independent in 1947, the population of Hindus in Pakistan was 20 percent. But now it has come down to just 1 percent. Whereas the Muslim population in Pakistan is around 97 percent. But when we talk about Mithi city, Hindus are dominant here. Due to the large Hindu population in the city named Mithi, Muslims fully respect the religious beliefs and symbols of Hindus. However, the condition of Hindus in other areas of Pakistan is worse.
