Plight of minorities in Pakistan highlighted

ICC Note

Christian, Sikhs, Hindus, Ahmadiyyas, Shia Muslims and other religious minorities face persecution in Pakistan.
 

09/22/2010 Pakistan (Arab News)-European Organization for Pakistani Minorities (EOPM) have launched a 3-week long hunger strike with a poster campaign outside the United Nations in Geneva.

EOPM’s mission is to focus on atrocities committed against minorities in Pakistan, such as Christians, Sikhs, Hindus and other communities.

It says the last few months have witnessed unprecedented violence against minorities including attacks on places of their worship. EOPM condemns these attacks and calls upon the government of Pakistan and the international community to stop the violence against the innocent people.

Rev. Saloman Masah and Rev. Tahir Yaqub, both from Pakistan, began a sit-in on Monday specially to highlight the plight of Christians.
