In Pakistan, Religious extremism has grown beyond all proportions while extremist mindset has controlled the Pakistani Society. Now, Every Christian in Pakistan is seeking ways to ESCAPE from this suffocating situation. Government has failed to provide security, protection, and justice to the vulnerable Christian community.
These Pakistani Christians were forced into exodus from Pakistan after being victimized by “Blasphemy Law”, “Forced Conversions” and accusations of preaching amongst the “non-Believers” to convert them from Islam to Christian faith. All these destitute families are facing a lot of problems in Thailand, Malaysia, and Sri Lanka.
This exodus of Christians started in the year 2009 when “Christian Colonies villages and neighbourhoods in Punjab were attacked by the “Muslim Extremists.” Many houses were torched wherein several persons were burnt alive. Hundreds of Christians from Gojra and Korian village left Pakistan and took refuge in Sri-Lanka, Thailand, and Malaysia for protection of their lives.
In March 2013, Muslim fanatics attacked “Joseph Colony,” Badami –Bagh, Lahore and burnt down the entire Christian colony. This painful incident further accelerated the exodus of Christians from Pakistan. They applied for asylum at the UNHCR, but due to the global humanitarian crisis, the UNHCR was unable to resettle these families in a third country, such as the United States, Canada, or Australia.
According to our records, there are still more then 1,500 Pakistani Christian families in Thailand, Malaysia, and Sri Lanka. These families do not have adequate housing and health care and even their children are unable to go to school as they are illegal in These countries. They desperately need to move to a safer country where they can start a new life. They are Christians and fleeing oppression, they are not economic refugees.
Our merged organization, the FSF, has been working for refugees and asylum seekers since 2014, and while working there, we have had some terrible experiences. Dozens of Christians have died in immigration detention centres in Thailand and elsewhere. Hundreds of them have even got various diseases and the UNHCR is unable to provide health assistance all. So, we need your help to bring these people back to life.
The Emergency Committee to Save the Persecuted and Enslaved is starting their new centres in Thailand and Malaysia for such affected refugees and asylum seekers. We need your help to Save these Persecuted People, stand with us to save these people.
