-Publisher

Pakistan was created in 1947, the first nation in modern times to be formed on the basis of religion, but it was founded with solidly secular laws and constitution.

A state formed with the intention of protecting religious minorities from persecution has seen the status of its own minorities gradually deteriorate to the point where the Christian community is under great pressure.

This thorough analysis of the Christian community in Pakistan shows a gradual shift in the Pakistani state and is a clear warning to the West and minorities in other Muslim countries around the world of what can happen when conservative Islamic voices come to the fore.
