Dr., RJP

Sorry , nowhere Jews are being slaughtered. There are Synagogues in Peshawar and Karachi and even in Afghanistan for single Jew living in the war torn country. If you are talking about Gaza and Israel then its 1 ( Jew) to 300 (Phalestinian ) and the whole world knows about this reality. Moreover, Christian and Muslim are living peacefully in all muslim states except some mishapes in Sudan , which also (basically )has political motivations behind it.

However, in my comments I did not talk about the mobs taking arms against the peacefull peaople and in some cases the minorities, I am talking about the state laws and the constitutions of the countries and the UN Charter ,I still await any single example in the world which prohibits minorities from practicing their own religion.

Sudan and Saudi laws do not prohibit minorities from practicing their religion and the constitutionsof both the states prohibit attrocities against minorities. Its the mobs and fanatics which comit the wrongs against the humanity and the minorities and even against the political rivals in the name of religion or sect. So lets talk about the peacefull co-existence and let every body do their job whether religious or non-religious.

By the way there are hundreds of comunities( belonging to different religions-even jews) are living peacfully in Pakistan and state laws protect them. i had Hindu teacher who taught me in Schools I had Sikh and Christian friends. Some Christian Missionaries in my city Shikarpur ( which still exist) taught me the whole Bible before even i had a chance to read a word from Quran.

There is no trouble except with those who oppose peacefull co-existence and propagate hatred among communities on the basis of religion and the self made dogmas!
