The problem of Pakistan’s persecution of religious minorities reached the doors of the United Nations headquarters in New Delhi on Wednesday. It came in the form of refugees who had needed to flee from Pakistan because they happened to be Hindu. They demonstrated to highlight this problem that is completely ignored by the international community.
Hindu’s, Christians, shi’ite Muslims and Ahmadiyya Muslims are treated unfavorably in Pakistan’s Sunni Muslim-dominated society. We have written previously about Christians who had also being persecuted in Pakistan.
Pakistan is a hellhole for religious minorities, yet is a member of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation which chooses to lecture the world about religious tolerance!
While the OIC is bullying the world at the United Nations, non-Muslims and non-Sunni Muslims are being driven from their homes in OIC member states. Rather than bow to OIC demands to curb freedom of expression, Western governments need to suspend their relations with the OIC until it gets its house in order.
