Only a day after a Christian priest was shot dead by unidentified gunmen in Peshawar city of Pakistan, a Hindu businessman Satan Lal was shot dead in Ghotki district of Pakistan's Sindh province on Monday. With attacks on minorities continuing unabetted in Pakistan as authorities look the other way, here's a timeline showing why India's neighbour is increasingly becoming no country for minorties:

January 2022

31 January: Hindu businessman Satan Lal shot dead in Ghotki district of Pakistan's Sindh province.

30 January: Gunmen kill Christian priest, wounds another in northwestern city of Peshawar

2021

Five members of a Hindu family were found dead with their throats slit with some sharp-edged weapon in Abu Dhabi Colony, 15-kilometre away from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Ajay Lalwani, journalist, dies of three gunshot wounds suffered in Sukkur, northern Sindh Province.

August

November

11-year-old Hindu boy sexually assaulted and brutally murdered in Pakistan's Sindh province.

According to a report by Economic Times, a report by the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Pakistani Minorities found that around 1,000 girls between the ages of 12-25 from minorities are forcibly converted to Islam in Pakistan every year and married to their abductors, which described the situation as a "humanrights catastrophe".

While governments have come and gone, religious freedom continue to remain under threat in Pakistan. The current ruling Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government, under the leadership of Imran Khan, vowed in their 2018 election manifesto that “PTI will protect the civil, social and religious rights of minorities; their places of worship, property and institutions as laid down in the Constitution.”

Among the list of promises for a “Naya Pakistan,” there were two important vows that still require the government’s attention: ensuring equal justice and protecting minorities from violence, hate speech, and discrimination, according to The Diplomat.
