EFSAS comments on assassination attempt on PAK-Interior Minister


Ahsan Iqbal has been a strong supporter of the rights of Pakistan’s much-persecuted religious minorities. In October 2017, he condemned a hate speech by a leader of his own party against the Ahmadias, an Islamic minority sect, and called for an ‘inclusive Pakistan’. He held meetings with Shia Hazaras a week ago and had concluded a meeting with a Christian group just a few minutes before he was shot.
