Jump to navigation Jump to search

Protestants are a minority of less than 2% of the population of Pakistan. In the 1990s Christians were imprisoned on blasphemy charges. There is an endeavour by some Muslims to convert Christians. In 2005 schools and churches were burned in an anti-Christian riot in the major city of Faisalabad. The Pakistani Anti-blasphemy-laws are used to terrorize religious minorities.

There have been a number of attacks on Pakistani Christians by Islamists in recent years.
