Pakistan: Minority Rights Organisation Under Fire

Right groups in Pakistan have defended a Christian-run organization after it was accused of anti-state activities after it sent a report to a UN agency about rights violations in the country.

The Muslim-majority nation’s interior ministry has ordered Punjab provincial government to take action against the rights organization, the Center for Social Justice (CSJ), for its alleged anti-state propaganda sent to the UN, the widely circulated Urdu newspaper, Jang, reported on Aug. 21.

The CSJ, a minority rights organization based in Lahore, submitted the report to the United Nations Human Rights Council in July. The report, a joint effort of several groups, was endorsed by more than 30 rights organizations including the Justice and Peace Commission of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Pakistan.
