USCIRF condemns religious mob violence in Pakistan

Last week, the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) condemned the surge of Islamic mob violence in Pakistan. Their target — other Muslims.

Because of Pakistan’s blasphemy law, Sunni Muslims are accusing minority Shia Muslims of blasphemy — even when there is no evidence. Ahmadis, a particular Muslim sect, also fall in the mob crosshairs.

Nehemiah* with FMI explains why. “Muslim scholars in Pakistan have all declared war against these Ahmadis and Shias. They think because of these sects, the image of Islam has been damaged in the entire world, especially in Pakistan.”
