    There can be no problem if there are Jews in Pakistan. Pakistan is a Muslim state but there are also some Hindus, Christians and Parsis in our community. They are all proud of Pakistanis. If we find Jews in Pakistan, there are Pakistanis too. Everyone should create unity,peace and brotherhood among each other

      But if they had not accepted Islam, then are they doomed to hellfire/Jahannum? Why are we ignoring the reality?

        The Jews are AhleKitab, and as such under Quranic law they must be protected.

      Hi – just wondering who posted this. My mom is from the Reuben family. Her father was Solomon Reben, her grandparents were Esther and Samuel.

        I do not know who this is. But since there is an email you can find out and maybe let me know as well. I would be grateful if you could send me some details of the Jewish community in Karachi and the history of your mother’s family. I am trying to put something together on post-British Karachi, especially between the two world wars. 
        Best wishes,

        Hi Ilana, I hope you’re doing good. I’m working on a university project on “forgotten heritage of karachi” and I came across to this webpage while doing research, well I feel for you and let me know if I can help you in any way as I live in karachi.

        If you find this comment, you can reach me through my email address as I might not be checking out this webpage in future. Thank you!
