Minorities in Pak persecuted by govt & majority: US

Asserting that religious minorities in Pakistan are being persecuted by the government and the majority Muslims, a top American litigator on free speech and religious liberties has told lawmakers that unjust blasphemy laws in the country are used to target them. “In the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, religious minorities are persecuted both by the Pakistani government and by the majority Muslims,” Jay Alan Sekulow, Chief Counsel, American Center for Law and Justice, said in his testimony before a Senate Committee. “While Pakistan’s blasphemy laws provide a tool for the majority Muslims to persecute minorities on account of their religion and to settle personal scores, the government does not provide adequate protection to its vulnerable citizens.”
