There should be no compulsion in religion, but wait – what about Pakistan?

Islamic Pakistan:

  • Pakistan’s persecution of Christians escalates
  • Government makes Islamic study compulsory in all schools and colleges
  • Kidnapping, forced marriages and forced religious conversions of Christians
  • Blasphemy charges and violent assaults on Christians and their churches
  • British Pakistani Christian Association reports grave abuses of Christian communities.

Jewish Israel:

  • Religious tolerance
  • Compulsory military training for?all Israeli citizens over the age of 18 who are Jewish, Druze?or Circassian; other Arab citizens of Israel are not conscripted. Other exceptions are made on religious, physical or psychological grounds.

Pakistan was formed to give Muslims their own country ?but, unlike Israel, they show no tolerance for other religions. Even compulsory military training in Israel doesn’t apply to everyone. In Pakistan, on the other hand, there is forced religious conversion to Islam and compulsory study of Islam in all schools and colleges. Clearly, the religion of peace as practised in Pakistan is not a tolerant religion and does not follow Islam’s own precept that there should be no compulsion in religion. The regular kidnapping, rape and forced marriage and conversion to Islam of young Christian girls is a horrific but common practice in Pakistan. They also have modern-day slavery, known as bonded labour in Pakistan, despite a 1992 law being passed against it. ?Also practised in Pakistan is the payment of a Jizya tax (Islamic protection money), which is a payment demanded from non-Muslims living inside an Islamic State.

?The government of Pakistan has announced plans to force Islam on young people by making Quranic study compulsory for all school and college students, which is contrary to the country?s constitution and the Islamic precept that there should be no compulsion in religion. This is the latest escalation of the country?s bias against Christians, other minority faiths and non-believers,? said Peter Tatchell, Director of the human rights organisation, the Peter Tatchell Foundation.

I know very little about Pakistan. I recently learned during my visit to New Zealand’s largest mosque that many Ahmadiyya Muslims have been killed there and their worldly goods stolen without repercussions but other than that I knew nothing about the country.

Pakistan was carved out of India to create a Muslim country. In 1971, Muslims murdered 2.4 million Hindus and raped 200,000 Hindu women?but in the West very few of us know about this attempted genocide.So why is it that we are so ignorant of these historical facts?

…The Israeli?s and Hindus are the largest victims of perpetual Islamic invasions and violence lasting for more than 1,000 years. Muhammad Ali Jinna, a member of the Indian National Congress and later of the All-India Muslim League (a Khilafat movement that also germinated the Palestine conflict), demanded a two-state partition, creating the Lahore Resolution, which formed the separate creation of Pakistan.
