Sunni Extremism & Religious Persecution of Minorities[edit]

According to Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP) and other independent international and national media sources, due to banned terrorist organizations likes of Lashkar-i-Jhangvi & Pakistani Taliban and deliberate efforts of the Pakistan governmental agencies to counter the Baloch nationalist's legitimate fight for the independence, there has been the surge in the religious extremism in Panjgur targeting Hindus, Shias (including Hazaras) and Zikris, resulting in migration of over 300,000 Shias, Zikris, and Hindus from Baluchistan.[3][4][5][6]
