Misery for Pakistani Christians

Aid groups estimate that nearly 2 million people have been displaced by fighting between the Taliban and the Pakistani military in Swat, North West Frontier Province, Pakistan.

Hundreds of professing Christian families are among those in need because of the discrimination they suffer in daily life and even now as refugees. Pakistani Christians, who are often poor day labourers, are particularly vulnerable in the mass exodus, as prices of transport and products rise sharply.

In some areas, government relief workers have forbidden Christians and other minority faiths from setting up tents or eating with Muslim refugees.
