Worthy Christian News » 'Pakistan is a Living Hell …'

By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent

NEW YORK, USA (Worthy News)– Protesters carried banners stating: "Pakistan is a Living Hell for Hindus, Sikhs and Christians" near the Pakistan Consulate in New York City Wednesday in support of all the victims of religious bigotry, hate and intolerance in that notorious Islamic nation.

The demonstration was organized by the Indian American Intellectuals Forum in cooperation with Hindu Human Rights Watch, Justice for Hindus, the Human Rights Coalition against Radical Islam and other rights groups, according to the Pakistan Christian Post.

A memorandum expressing the groups' outrage at the terrible treatment of religious minorities was submitted to the Consul General of Pakistan; it claimed that Pakistan's blasphemy laws were used to intimidate and harass religious minorities through false accusations.

Reminding the Consul General that his forefathers were Hindus before being forced to convert to Islam by Arabs, the memo stated that violence and terror are the hallmarks of uncivilized brutes.

Narain Kataria, organizer of the protest, said that minorities have been terrorized in Pakistan such that hundreds of Hindus who crossed into India earlier this year — under the pretense of visiting a religious festival — refused to return and instead petitioned the Indian government for political asylum.

Quoting from the U.S. Commission's report on International Religious Freedom, Kataria said there were more than 200 reported incidents of sectarian violence in Pakistan, resulting in 1,800 injuries, including 700 deaths.

      From outside the usa it appears as if all bible believing christians in the usa are suffering under persecution from the atheist and homosexual agendas, not just the black christians. May you please explain why you think black christians suffer more than others?

      Dude…. Muslims in India have equal rights, and all sorts of freedom including right to vote, and even special reservation for development. If you dont know about India's secularism and democracy then search a little bit on internet , you will come to know that muslims are treated better in India and that pakistan can never match to its big heart and equal treatments. India has a reputation worldwide that its neighbors can only imagine to have…
