to grant Pakistani Christians a refugee status after polls on PCP when more them sixty two thousand voted to file this petition.

Dr. Bhatti added “I congratulate thousands of Christians who voted in favor of PCP polls which are ever biggest vote on any website around world on any polling”
Christians are being persecuted and under constitutional genocide and reserve right of refugee status under UNO charter.
The government of Pakistan failed to oblige equal basic democratic rights to Christians and ensure justice to minorities.
