Clerics, new converts, non-Muslim community leaders and rights activists say that mostly people belonging to the poor class and scheduled castes, especially Dalit Hindus, were converting to Islam.

Aslam Ali, 36, a resident of Tharparkar who has converted to Islam from Hinduism, said the Dalit community was facing discrimination both at the hands of Muslim and upper-caste Hindus, who stayed away from its members.
