RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION IN PAKISTAN
One wonders if
their present situation in Pakistan on the one hand and India on the other has occasioned
some rethinking on their part. For all we know, these persecuted sects may repeat the
story of Syrian Christians who has found refuge in India from persecution at the hands of
their co-religionists but who rallied round the Portuguese persecutors of Hindus after
having enjoyed Hindu hospitality for several centuries. Hindus have to address themselves
to this curious phenomenon of the persecuted sects retaining the persecution mentality
inculcated by a parental closed creed.
Hindus meanwhile should recognize by such events the dangers that exist to members of
their religion in Islamic countries, which have no qualms about suppressing religious
minorities. If Hindus don't learn to speak out against such oppression, it is going to
continue without question and, therefore, without change, because clearly the global media
does not care very much either.
