Hard-liners in Pakistan are forcing Christians out of Muslim neighborhoods and refusing to give them lodgings, according to a high-profile minority groups’ politician championing human rights.

Speaking following the death of Christian man Nadeem Joseph – who was repeatedly shot by a neighbor for refusing to leave his house in a Muslim neighborhood – Pakistani politician Joel Amir Sahotra told Catholic charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) that there is a worrying trend of non-Muslims facing fierce opposition if they try to move to Muslim areas.

The politician, who has served on Punjab’s Provincial Assembly, said: “Discrimination against religious minorities, unfortunately, is very common in Pakistan – there is no respect or acceptance for them.”
