Shia Rights Watch, June 15th, 2016 SRW would like to issue an official thank you to Father Emmanuel Yousaf Mani, the National Director of the Pakistani Catholic Bishop’s National Commission for Justice and Peace, for his statements regarding religious freedom for Shia Muslims. According to UCA news, Mani stated that the Pakistani government “must take notice of Shia killings” and that “Nobody has the right to force their beliefs upon others.” Father Emmanuel also urged leaders to speak out and say Pakistan “is meant for all sects.” Shia Rights Watch stands with his sentiments and desires a Pakistan with religious freedom not only for its Shia Muslims but for Christians as well.

The Shia community currently makes up 20 percent of the Muslim community in Pakistan and should be allowed to peaceful practice their religion. Shia Rights Watch reaffirms Mr. Emmanuel Yousaf Mani’s statement that “The state must protect all religious minorities.”

Sincerely,
