Pakistan: Religious Freedom

Volume 461: debated on Thursday 14 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what representations she has made to the government of Pakistan on the treatment of Christians in Charsadda and other parts of the North West Frontier Province. (142885)

I am aware of the continuing problems faced by minority groups in Pakistan, including the Christian community in the North West Frontier Province. We regularly raise our concerns with the government of Pakistan, bilaterally and together with our EU partners, and will continue to encourage Pakistan to pursue its vision of enlightened moderation for the benefit of all its citizens.
