Pakistan activists say court ruling threatens minorities

ISLAMABAD (AP) — Rights activists in Pakistan expressed concern Sunday over a court ruling that would require people to declare their religion on all official documents, saying it could lead to the persecution of minorities, particularly adherents of the Ahmadi faith.

Zohra Yusuf, a board member at the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, called the ruling “very dangerous.” She said her group would issue a statement in the coming days.

Can you imagine this happening in America? Do you believe this will happen America? If it did what would you put down?

  1. This would be dangerous. .Believers in Christ are already a target in many country’s.. this would only escalate it..
