EU Conference called for "Protecting Minority Rights in South Asia"

EU Parliament in Brussels

Global Human Rights Defence in collboration with MEP Cecilia Wikstrom and the ALDE Committee of the EU, have invited the BPCA's Wilson Chowdhry to participate at an EU CONFERENCE termed "Protecting Minority Rights in South Asia".

The Event will be held in the EU Parliament at Brussels on December 8, 2011 starting at 09:00 and concluding at 13:00.

Key speakers are Taslima Nasreen, Bangladeshi writer in exile, and winner of the European Parliament Sakharov Prize, and Anuradha Koirala, awarded CNN hero 2010 for her work against human trafficking in Nepal.

The event, in celebration of International Human Rights Day, brings together human rights defenders from Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Nepal, India and Bhutan to address European representatives, MEPs, policymakers and NGOs.

A platform such as this is a real opportunity to challenge for a sterner approach from Europe with regards to Pakistan's Abysmal record for human rights.

Please pray for understanding and wisdom to be poured abundantly over Wilson Chowdhry our delegate, pray for MEPs to have a tenderness of heart for global persecuted minorities and pray for a positive conclusion, that may shape a more harmonious future for all who live in South Asia.

As an unfunded group we rely on donations from those who appreciate the work of the BPCA. We would appreciate any assistance towards the finance for this important delegation. We are seeking donations towards the travel costs, any offer of a place of residence from Christians living near Brussels or donations towards an overnight stay.

If you can assist please make contact or send donations via our Paypal link at the top of this blog, or by cheque made payable to the BPCA at

  6. Dear Respected Chaudry Sb.

    First of all I must appreciate you that yours afford for the vulnerable Christian in all over the world, specially for the Pakistani Christians.

    Here in Pakistan are many reasons of persecution to Pakistani Christians. But one of the major reasons of persecution in Pakistan with Christians that Christians leaders like pastors, Bishops, Political leaders and Social works are not using funds which they are receiving from the national and international donors. I like to advise you may please give your curable attention that how international community use their funds through Pastors, Bishops Political Leaders and social works without any discrimination, greed, dishonesty and many more.

    I found as per my survey that Average 75% Christians families are not able to pay School fee(s) or Educational expenditure to their children. Average 27% medical Expenditures, 69% families are under debt, 35% youngster are indict, 17% Christian Families are not able to send their children in schools, colleges or universities. There are very dangerous figures but instead of our leaders are rich, well established. Poverty is the only reasons for Christians to face discrimination or persecution in Pakistan.

    I hope yours best affords shall bring bright changes in Pakistan.

    May God bless you and yours conference.

    Yours brother in Christ.
