Among the flood victims of Sindh (South of Pakistan), Christian and Hindu “Dalits” families, considered the “untouchables”, are thrown out of refugee camps set up by the government and do not receive humanitarian aid. This is the complaint which comes from the Catholic diocese of Hyderabad, confirmed by non-governmental organizations.
Barbarians. All aid to Pakistan should end RIGHT NOW and not be reinstated until it is equitably and fairly distributed to EVERYONE in need. There’s nothing worse than prejudice- unless it’s underwriting and enabling prejudice. And that the government (which continues to receive BILLIONS of US tax dollars) is behind it- well that’s infuriating.
