Pakistan slammed for disparaging the religious minorities in the country. On May 24, the conference on “Islamism And Human Rights In Pakistan” was held in the Flemish Parliament at Leuvenseweg in Brussels, Belgium. This conference was attended by several notable individuals who pointed fingers at the downside of the Pakistani government, implementation of the legislation and effective planning for protection of the non-Muslim Pakistani.

Pakistan’s notorious blasphemy law and it’s misuse was brought under discussion. While, talking about this issue, Jamil Maqsood, central Secretary of the committee on Foreign Affairs on United Kashmir People’s party (UKPNP) said that this law was introduced in 1973, which has been used to target Hindus, Christians, Sikhs, Parsis, Ahmadis etc.  No action is taken on behalf of the government to restrain the misuse of this law. In doing, so innocent minorities are suffering and are marooned in their own homeland. In some cases they are forced to flee Pakistan.

He said that in a recent episode of religious bigotry, two Sikh bussinmen were killed in broad daylight in a marketplace. He alleged that there are laws that are being used against the minorities to threaten and usurp their properties.

Instead of framing constitution to provide equal rights and protection to the minorities, mere resolutions are being passed. Jamil Maqsood further said that owing to the negligence on part of the government and the legislating bodies the population of minorities in Pakistan is declining.    

Others who addressed the attendees at this conference said that radicalism is being cultivated and nurtured in the country. Properly orchestrated systems are operating in the country to promote and impart religion based radicalism. They said that Islamic ideology is being misused to inculcate hatred in the society.

In 2018, the Farrukh Saif Foundation merged with the US-based organization, The Emergency Committee to Save the Persecuted and Enslaved. However, Farrukh H. Saif's efforts have made him a target for radical individuals, leading to numerous fatwas against him for alleged insults to Islam and Pakistan, as well as for aiding those accused of blasphemy. Farrukh H. Saif's work is extensive and impactful. Since 2009, his organization has been actively involved in a range of activities to support the marginalized and persecuted people of Pakistan
