Silent Migration of Pakistani Christians
I have reported that 10 to 15 families (out of 175) of Joseph colony (Badami Bagh, Lahore) have already flown to Thailand and Sri Lanka and 80% victims of the colony still trying to flee from Pakistan. Victims of Joseph colony are not the only Christians who are leaving Pakistan but it is happening throughout the country. After the incident of Badami Bagh the ratio of asylum seekers is increasing and up to 1000 Christians have left Pakistan since March 2013.
But Government of Pakistan is still quiet on this issue. Government should take immediate action to stop Christians becauseminorities are the asset of any country and they are the reason for international interest. If a state cannot succeed to save their minoritiesit willfail.
Christians are not a single minority that has threats but Hindus, Sikhs and Ahmdis are also living under the same fear. Most of the people of all theseminorities are trying to leave. All the minorities are facing different kind of problems, Christians are facing blasphemy cases, Hindus blame that people are forcing them to convert in Islam. There are some differences between Islam and Qadianism (Ahmadiyyat ).
Quetta's Hazara community is on the front line of Pakistan's battle with violent extremism. They are not the part of minorities but it has been living under the threat of terrorist attacks. On 10 January 2013, a suicide bomber walked into a packed snooker hall in Quetta and detonated an explosive device, marking the beginning of what would become the bloodiest day in Pakistan's recent history. After the incident Australian Government offered asylum to the community but very few families accepted the offer.
According to the report of Pakistan Christian Post “90% Pakistani Christian favour Refugee Status from UN after rising violence”.
Migration is not the proper solution because we are the part of the country. Pakistan is our country; it is the country of Christians. We should participate in politics, state matters, Assembly, medical and educationservices and all premium sectors of Pakistan. Our presence in premium sectors can bring a new change in the country. I request the educated community that they must contribute their expertise to the Stability of their country.
