New York. August 07,2001.
Mr. Nazir S. Bhatti, president, Pakistan Christian Congress, condemn the persecution of religious minorities in Islamic republic Of Pakistan. Mr. Bhatti demanded the â€˜Minority Commissionâ€™ headed by Supreme Court justi
In a statement he said that, major law enforcement agencies in pakistan are famous for ill behavior, corruption, wrongful confinement and extra judicial killings of Christians under the administrative excessive powers, now involved in discrimination on religion with fellow christian trainee constables in different police training centers in pakistan. The recent incident in Punjab Constabulary Battalion 2, at Rawat tainting center, Rawal Pindi, forcing to keep separate cooking utensils from Muslims, like many other centers, where Muslim constables, even do not permit Christians to wash cups and plates in the kitchens and dinning halls. He said that there are only two Christian trainee constables in Rawat Center, comparing to hundreds of Muslims, unable to drink from same tape in common cups and to keep their plates in the same racks. The administration of the center instead of taking any action, favors Muslims, on such inhuman acts against Christians. The behavior of hate rate toward Christians on religion is very common in all walks of life in pakistan and main root cause of apartheid in society, depriving of equal basic rights and forcing 20 million Christians to live in social and economic disaster. Any laws do not prevent the hat rate among different religious communities in society and curse of touch ability since 1947, nor the legislative institutes have adopted such measures to curb this curse in society. On other hand there are sections in PPC to encourage the Muslim majority to rape, kidnap, forcefully marriage Christian minor and married women. The Muslim judges dissolve Christian marriages to legalize and protect Muslims. Its worst situation that Muslims in Pakistan are allowed to kidnap and marry Christian's ladies but prohibited by Islamic law to eat with Christians. He deplored the incidents of discrimination in different institutions and demanded government to punish such elements.
Mr. Bhatti urged the government of Pakistan to also respect the Liaquat Nehru Pact like Shimla agreement and Lahore Pact for peace in the region and betterment of religious minorities in sub continent.
