Peter Tatchell speaks against Pakistan’s move to curb Christian’s civil liberties

The human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell had spoke against the Pakistan government’s move to further restrict the Christian’s civil liberties.

The other day Pakistan’s education minister Mohammad Balighur Rahman had announced that Koranic education must be compulsory for all school children. Peter Tatchell had said that “This is the latest escalation of the country’s bias against Christians, other minority faiths and non-believers.”

He had made such a comment in the wake of a report from the British Pakistani Christian Association (BPCA). The association detailed about many of the hardships faced by Pakistani Christians.

He asked the British government to “make overseas aid to Pakistan conditional on Islamabad’s protection of the human rights of Christians and other minorities.” He added by saying that “if Pakistan’s rulers do not comply, the UK should switch aid from the government to NGOs that do not discriminate.”
