(Worthy News) - The president of Pakistan's Christian Congress has urged Western nations to open its doors to persecuted Pakistani Christians.

According to the Daily Pakistan, Nazir Bhatti said Christians seeking asylum should be accommodated in the USA, the UK and other European countries.

Bhatti's plea comes after the announcement that refugees from Syria will be welcomed by both the UK and Germany.

Thousands of Pakistani Christian asylum seekers are not economic immigrants, but persecuted Christians who can't afford to pay human traffickers to reach the shores of Europe, wrote Bhatti. Christian Asylum seekers in Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Thailand and other South Eastern Asian countries have been waiting years for word on their immigration cases without any support from the UNHCR, IRC and other International NGOs.
