Religious Minorities in Pakistan Worse Off in 2006

From AsiaNews.IT:

Lahore (AsiaNews) – The situation of Christians and other minorities in Pakistan has “gone from bad to worse in 2006” whilst “blasphemy regulations are increasingly being used in twisted ways against the weakest groups in society,” Shahbaz Bhatti, chairman of the All Pakistan Minorities Alliance, told AsiaNews on International Human Rights Day.

“The misuse of the blasphemy law increased alarmingly,” he noted. “Many cases filed against Christians are baseless. The number of rapes and kidnappings of minority women have also increased.”

Let us all pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ who are being persecuted for their faith around the world.
