We regularly raise our concerns about the Freedom of Religion or Belief (FoRB) and the protection of minority religious communities, with the Pakistani Government at a senior level. We will continue to work tirelessly to defend and promote the rights of peoples of all faiths and none so that they can practise their faith or belief without fear or discrimination. We are monitoring this case closely and working with our international partner.
