X Posted from the Oppression of Minorities in Pakistan thread.
The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) releases the “State of Human Rights in 2010.
After reading the report one is left with no doubt about Pakistani “Big Heartedness” that enables them to set their problematic human right record aside and stand up for real and imagined instances of the violation of the human rights of Mohammaddens in all the corners of the world
On the topic of the more pure Mohamaddens killing the less pure Mohamaddens in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan:
The country witnessed a series of faith-based attacks in which not only were minorities targeted but 418 Muslims belonging to various sects were killed. Suicide attacks on Muslims injured 628 people, mainly Shia and Barelvi
On the topic of the persecution of Non-Mohamaddens Dhimmis besides Non-Mohamadden sects deemed heretical in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan:
The report said prejudices of law-enforcement personnel were believed to be a hurdle in effective protection of religious minorities in serious danger from Taliban or sectarian militant groups.
HRCP secretary-general I.A. Rehman said that in most of the religious-based killings the federal and the provincial government concerned even failed to express sympathy with the victims. He referred to faith-based killing of 99 Ahmedis across the country.
The report highlighted a growing spread of hate literature and said it had been monitored that in the mainstream Urdu newspapers 1,468 news articles and editorials promoted hate, intolerance and discrimination against Ahmedis.
“A student in Lahore was denied admission to MSc in zoology in a sate-run college because of his faith.”
The report said little progress had been made in bringing to justice those involved in violence and arson against a Christian locality in Gojra in 2009.
About 25 per cent of the 102 Sikh families in Orakzai Agency were forced to leave their generations-old homeland after Taliban asked them to pay Jaziya or leave the area. They were able to return after a military operation.
According to the Balochistan director of the federal human rights ministry, at least 27 Hindu families from the province sought asylum in India because of security threats.
Mr Rehman said the political parties had failed to contribute towards improving the human rights conditions.
“They cannot even speak clearly on the issue because they are not true political parties, these are just brokers and rubber-stamps,” he said.
The reports said at least 64 people were charged under the blasphemy law in 2010 and many of them were imprisoned.
On the topic of the persecution of the Baloch ethnic minority in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan:
Another 118 people were killed and 40 injured in 117 incidents of target killing in Balochistan, including 29 non-Baloch settlers and 17 members of the Shia Hazara community.
The bodies of 59 missing persons were found in Balochistan.
