Minority Leaders: “Religious Intolerance and Extremism are Growing in Pakistan”

Photo Courtesy: Agenzia Fides

Karachi: “The issue of extremism and insecurity is the main problem for religious minorities living in Pakistan. Day after day, the religious minorities of Pakistan face aggression, while the effects of religious extremism and fundamentalism are being felt, which generate various forms of persecution, including forced conversions of women from religious minorities “: this is what Fides told Agenzia Fides. Catholic Sabir Michael, president of the “Research Advocacy and Social Training Institute” in Karachi, a lecturer committed to human rights and the protection of religious minorities. Professor Michael recalls that these issues were at the center of the “National Day of Religious Minorities” which every year it is celebrated in Pakistan on 11 August, to commemorate the well-known speech that Ali Jinnah, the founder of the Fatherland, gave on 11 August 1947 to the Constituent Assembly, in which he reassured religious minorities and their legitimate rights, in the nascent Pakistan.

Sabir Michael cites some recent episodes: the brutal killing of the Christian Nadeem Joseph and the murder of a man from the Ahmadia community killed in court in Peshawar before the judge: Tahir Ahmed Naseem, 57, was facing trial under the blasphemy law, when a young man entered the courtroom and killed him. Then he recalls the interruption of the construction of the Hindu temple in the capital of Pakistan, at the hands of Islamic fundamentalists opposed to the construction of non-Islamic places of ulto. Moreover, he notes “there have been attacks on two churches in the province of Punjab: all these episodes are a sign of growing religious extremism and intolerance in Pakistan”.

According to Sabir Michael “there is a lot of work to be done to remove the hateful narrative present in the textbooks used in Pakistani schools: they inculcate hatred and contempt in the minds of children, defining Hindus and Christians as infidels”. And he notes: “These books also teach that Christians are ‘agents of the Western world’ and Hindus are ‘spies for India’, therefore people who cannot be trusted.”

Michael observes: “The kidnapping and forced conversion of Hindu and Christian teenage girls in Sindh and Punjab provinces is also on the rise: this phenomenon is a threat to security and prosperity for religious minorities.” The activist adds: “According to the latest report from the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) published in April 2019, on average every year 1,000 non-Muslim girls are kidnapped, raped and then forced to marry a man of old age. much higher. Many girls forced into these marriages are under the age of 18. “In this context, Michael concludes:” It is urgent that the institutions ensure that these attacks on religious minorities decrease; but during the blockade due to Covid-19 they increased rapidly: It is the government’s responsibility to re-elaborate its plans and strategies to protect and guarantee the legitimate rights of religious religious minorities living in Pakistan ”.

As reported in a note sent to Fides by the NGO “Minority Rights Group International” (MRG), “religious discrimination continues in the private and public sectors, and is also manifested in some areas of government, even during Covid-19”. There is evidence “of continuing social discrimination on the basis of religion and belief, which has a strong impact on the daily lives of those affected”. “The repeated publication of job advertisements limiting certain low-paid and low-skilled jobs to religious minorities is just one example of this daily reality,” it reads. “MRG is concerned about hate speech, including online on the basis of religion or belief, as well as the ways in which discrimination impedes equality of opportunity in education, work, business and ultimately , reintroduces poverty for many.”

Recognizing the fundamental rights enshrined in the Constitution of Pakistan, including religious freedom and equality among its citizens guaranteed by articles 20 and 25 of the Constitution, the NGO asks the government of Pakistan “to take steps towards equality and inclusion for all citizens of Pakistan “.

How You Identify Fake News or Messages on Social Media 

Beware of Fake News and Fake Messages on Social Media

Always follow websites or social media platforms of traditional media outlets whether newspapers, magazines,Television News Channels or Radio Stations and authentic online only media outlets.They still maintain journalism excellence and stress on reportorial talent.On the other hand, fake news websites run by people with non journalism background and promote their own ideology with fake news and disinformations and obviously conspiracy theories.

But unfortunately mainstream media also manipulates news to establish their story angle.There were various instances when News papers and TV Channels promoted fake news/conspiracy theories in the form of out of context or manipulated pictures/videos and distorted informations.

Always check the URL of any website.Some fake news websites look like the orginal and popular one the same layout,Logo but if you check the URL you may find extra words like if the orginal website's URL is www.xxx.com the duplicate one might be www.xxx.com.co or something like that so first check the URL for authentic informations.

Check whether photos are original or photoshopped.Check Google images for authenticity.You can find help from Google Reverse Images search.

Check the news sources from other websites whether they picked up the story or not.

Whether the website layout is little bit clumsy and obviously grammatical mistakes and spelling mistakes and excessive use of Sex related and sensational and hate stories.Because sex and hate sells.

Follow official websites relating to COVID-19

WHO Clarifies the disinformation about the virus:
COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates
Cold Weather and Snow can not kill the new coronavirus
Taking a Hot Bath Does Not Prevent COVID-19
COVID-19 Can not be transmitted through mosquito bites

Spraying alcohol or chlorine all over your body will not kill viruses that have already entered your body. Spraying such substances can be harmful to clothes or mucous membranes (i.e. eyes, mouth)

According to World Health Organization (WHO): Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water

Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth . If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early.

Stay at home if you begin to feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headache and slight runny nose, until you recover.

Follow WHO guidelines
