In 2010, the situation in Balochistan remained quite tensed as incidents of kidnapping for ransom were common, besides Muslims, people belonging to minorities were also being abducted for ransom. Because of these incidents, many people belonging to Hindu community had to migrate from Balochistan to Karachi and other parts of Sindh.
