Pakistani youth development organisation, Bargad, has been mobilising young Muslims in support of Christians. Recently, over 500 young Muslims campaigned for an end to discrimination and prejudice against religious minorities. Christians make up 1.6 per cent of Pakistan’s population and are frequently subject to violence and persecution.
“It is important to work at changing social attitudes and mentality towards minorities, so that they are properly respected and protected”, said Kamran Michael, the only Christian senator in Pakistan.
“Today we are laying the seed for social harmony and change,” said Saiha Shaheen, executive director of Bargad. “Students have taken an oath and pledged to be messengers of this change.”
