Description

Pakistan was founded in 1947 with a secular constitution. But its original intention of protecting religious minorities from persecution has been eroded by a process of Islamization, to the point where its Christian community is now under great pressure. This book reveals the gradual shift in the policy of the Pakistani state, and offers a warning to the West and minorities in other Muslim-majority countries of what can happen when conservative Islamic voices become politically dominant.
