ISLAMABAD: Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar has launched a dossier detailing Indian oppression on religious minorities.
The prime minister unveiled the dossier prepared by Islamabad Policy Research Institute (IPRI) during a ceremony at Margalla Dialogue in the federal capital on Wednesday.
The dossier explains how instances of majoritarian violence have been inflicted on religious minorities since 2014, the year when Narendra Modi and Bharatiya Janata Party came to power. It also adds that 294 incidents of extremism against minorities occurred in the year 2021 alone.
It also shows details of how hundreds of churches were burned to the ground in the Manipur incident this year. The dossier says that dozens of historical mosques in India are under threat and over 1,600 mosques are facing a media campaign.
Speaking at the occasion, Kakar said that India was promoting instability in the region. He, however, added that Pakistan is emerging as a responsible state and will continue to play a positive role for world peace.
Kakar said Hindutva’s emergence is a ‘challenge’ and RSS is continuously targeting minorities in India. He added that minorities enjoy ‘complete protection’ in Pakistan. – INP
