Your logic was " IF one believes scriptures....then ..." and that is what I am clarifying for you. Our access to scriptures is limited unless we happen to be engaged in a serious study of it. Even then, one needs a certain adhikara to pass judgments. +
That is why there were gurus in the society. They were the specialists in the field of Dharma. In old times when literacy was very limited, do you think everyone was reading shastras and deciding for themselves? Even now, you maybe literate but most likely you have studied+
a translation in English or other Indian language. Do you still think, you and a Shankaracharya get to sit on the same table to decide about what Shastras say?

Don;t impose democracy on everything naa.

What happens to Hindus in Pakistan is a matter of utter shame for Hindus. Hindus are discussing their plight in such details, hoping to attract, I don't know whose, sympathy. But none asking for retaliatory actions inside India, a geography where Hindus are 80% +
In 7 decades of democracy, Hindus haven't been able to turn India into a state aware of its responsibilities to Hindus outside India, especially sub continent. The few steps, like CAA, that are taken are challenged on streets by those who oppress Hindus in Pakistan.
In terms of numbers, the Pakistani Hindu story is almost irrelevant now. It's only the courage and love for our gods of Pakistani Hindus that still keeps them Hindu despite all odds. Compare them with Hindus of India who go around singing Qawalli of secularism.
