Amid a mounting sense of insecurity, over 1,000 Hindu families belonging to Pakistan are planning to migrate to India - a step which is likely to raise more questions about the country's ability to protect its minorities.

A group of 171 Hindus has already crossed the border into India after a string of incidents - especially the contentious issue of forced conversions and marriages of Hindu girls.

Hindu leaders said their plan of migrating came at a time when several Hindu families in Jodhpur, which shares a border with Sindh, expressed willingness to welcome the migrants.
