Pakistan’s religious orders organize ‘security groups’
Catholic World News - July 02, 2013
In the face of continued violence against Christians and other religious minorities in Pakistan, the major superiors of religious orders have organized 15 “security groups” to monitor discrimination and persecution throughout the country.
“Security in the country gets worse and worse,” said Rasheed Gill of the major superiors’ justice and peace commission. “In recent weeks, fundamentalists and terrorists attacked the common people, police officers, prisoners, lawyers, mosques, tourists. We want to support and protect the most marginalized religious minorities through awareness programs.”
