Draft letter to government ministers calling for improved risk profiling on Pakistan and to prioritise Christian refugees

Dear I am writing to you on behalf of the Pakistani Christian community to draw your attention to the desperate plight of Christians which is inching closer to the level of genocide.  For at least the last two generations, Christians have been increasingly badly treated in Pakistan.  The state education system, let alone the Mosque schools, portray Christians and other minorities in a bad and dehumanizing light, a problem not addressed despite the fact that British and other Western nation’s tax money and aid goes to support literacy campaigns without addressing these wider and deeply concerning issues in the education system in Pakistan.  Christia...

Family praise generosity of donors who have saved bomb hero from destitution

Qaisor Pervaiz and his family are grateful to BPCA donors for saving them from destitution. The twin bomb attack in Yohanabad, Lahore was both demoralising and debilitating.  The explosions, one in a Catholic church and the other in a protestant church, took the lives of 29 innocent Christians and injured a further 80 creating great turmoil amongst locals. Some victims of twin bomb attack were miraculously saved.  One of these was Qaisor Pervaiz who received 85% burns to his body, and was expected to never escape the coma he found himself in, after grappling with the suicide bomber in an attempt to save the lives of others.  This...

False Allegation Leads to IDC Strife for Pak-Christian Asylum Seekers

Papa and Mama Thongchai with Christian Malik our Thailand officer BPCA were poised to remove an 18 year old girl from IDC after reports that she was sexually molested. We were working with Papa Thongchai to secure her release, but then discovered that the accusation of sexual assault was false. We would not normally warrant a payment for release of a visa overstayer in IDC as it is an extremely large payment for our group to pay. The original story of her sexual assault however led us to divert funds towards the release of a victim we believed to be in an extremely frightened and emotional state. Whilst going through the process of obtaining her release we discovere...

Floods worsen already deplorable lives of Pak-Christians

Flood ravaged Christians of Kasur are desperate for food and clean water. Naveed Aziz our Pakistan officer visited Kasur to meet with victims of the massive deluge in Pakistan earlier this month.  Christians living here have received no help or response from the Government of Pakistan or any charities.  They have been affected by the Pakistan floods every year since 2010 and yet no disaster recovery plan or infrastructure has been put in place to enhance their safety or security.  Our work itself was delayed due to the fact that our officer had travelled to Layyah and Gilgit first, both areas where all the Christian communities have survived quite mira...
