Responsible for Equality And Liberty (R.E.A.L.) urges the Pakistan Government to reconsider efforts to ban and silence Internet access to the Pakistan people to the “Pakistan Christian Post” (PCP), led by Dr. Nazir Bhatti, which routinely provides a voice on Pakistan Christian minority human rights issues. The PCP also provided a regular defense of minority and global human rights, based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). R.E.A.L. learned of the efforts to silence the PCP on July 16, 2018. Since 2001, the PCP has been a regular voice on issues such as the Pakistan Christian minority persecution by extremist and institutional forces.
Responsible for Equality And Liberty strongly urges the Pakistan Government and court system to reconsider such a ban. The extremist and anti-pluralist forces that routinely persecute and oppress religious minorities undermine Human Rights not only for minorities, but also for all Pakistan people.
A victory for intolerance is defeat for all Pakistan people.
Responsible for Equality And Liberty will continue to stand by the Pakistan Christian Post, and we offer our resources to continue to give them a voice to the Pakistan people.
Our UNIVERSAL Human Rights are not just for those we like and those like us – they are human rights for ALL people – including minorities in our societies. Our commitment to this is a commitment to be responsible for equality and liberty.
