Pakistani bishops demand end to anti-Christian discrimination in flood relief
Catholic World News - September 16, 2010
Pakistani bishops are calling for an end to discrimination in aid to the non-Muslim victims of recent flooding. The nation’s federal minister for religious minorities, a Catholic layman, recently denied that discrimination was taking place.
“The discrimination in aid distribution is still taking place,” said Peter Jacob, secretary of the bishops’ commission for justice and peace. “It’s time the government officially admitted it, speaking out with clear words of condemnation and implementing a strategy to avoid it.”
