Western media exposes Pakistan; only ‘Christian’ recruitment outs as cleaning wastes | Instant News

The leading US daily on Tuesday exposed Pakistan for committing atrocities and astonishing discrimination against its Christian minority. A detailed report published in the newspaper documented the lives of Christian sewers in Pakistan, who were originally low-caste Hindus, dominated by the state, reading, “caste-based discrimination in Pakistan is almost state-driven.”

The report revealed that newspaper advertisements for sewer cleaners in Pakistan came with a warning – that only Christians should apply.

Pakistan’s cruelty towards its minority community was also revealed during this testing period when the world grappled with the COVID pandemic. The US Commission for International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) recently described an unsettling report on “food aid not provided to Hindu and Christian minorities in Pakistan” amid a coronavirus outbreak in the country.

THE USCIRF noted the incident in Karachi where there was a report from an NGO called Saylani Welfare International Trust which was formed to help homeless and seasonal workers reject food aid for Hindus and Christians, who allegedly argued that the aid was “only for Muslims”.

Back in the 2019 Annual Report, USCIRF has noted that Hindus, Christians, and other religious minorities in Pakistan “face ongoing threats to their security and experience various forms of social abuse and exclusion.”

Pakistan has been repeatedly revealed about its brutality against minorities and attacks on them while the Pakistani government is closing its mouth over atrocities against minorities. In addition to the latest report on discrimination over food aid, Pakistan has previously used attacks on Gurudwara Sikhs, kidnapping and forcing the conversion of Hindu and Sikh girls as well as the killing of minorities, or at the very least, which allowed supremacist militant groups to rule freely in power.
