A Hindu temple is vandalized in Khipro, Sanghar, Sindh, to insult Hindu God as they were celebrating the birthday of Lord Krishna. In Pakistan, even false allegation of blasphemy against Islam leads to mob lynching or death sentence but crimes against non-Muslim Gods goes unpunished, he tweeted.

Rahat John Austin, a Christian born in Pakistan, has been raising his voice for the persecuted minorities back home. He had to flee from Pakistan and is now living with his family in South Korea.

In recent years, there has been a surge in attacks on places of worship of religious minorities in Pakistan. The country has been repeatedly slammed by the international community for not safeguarding the interest of its minorities.
