New Delhi: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has asked a government led by Pakistani Imran Khan to “guarantee basic rights” to all citizens of South Asian countries.
The issue was raised in the British Parliament by South Asian Minister and Wimbledon Commonwealth Lord Ahmad, along with Pakistani Human Rights Minister Shirin Mazari.
The problem arose after recent reports of the murder of Mehmud Khan, Amadi in the northern city of Peshawar. He is the fourth Ahmadi who was shot and killed in the city. Ahmadi are a minority in Pakistan and their views are considered heresy in mainstream Islam.
The British House of Representatives raised the issue of murder and said that “humanitarian injustice and the plight of the persecuted minorities should not be ignored.”
“Hate spread in Pakistan and eventually ended on the streets of England, and it is for our own security to make it clear that the British government should end the persecution it supports.”
India emphasized the worsening situation for ethnic minorities. Pakistan has been a strong conversion of ethnic minorities , especially Hindus, Sikhs, Christians many times in the past .
Last week, India summoned a top Pakistani diplomat from Delhi after the management of Holy Kartarpur Sahib Gurudwara was handed over to a non-Sikh panel.
