Currently, there is an ongoing humanitarian crisis in the Sindh province of Pakistan.  The province has emerged as a terrorist safe haven for Islamic extremist seminaries.  The Sindhi people are a minority in the country of Pakistan refusing to support religious extremism and terrorism which has led to the targeting of the people of the Sindh province.

Sindhis are subjected to forced religious conversion, torture, abduction, and death. The extremist seminaries are located along both banks of the river Indus and highway connecting Peshawar and Afghanistan. The community of Sindhis are continually being persecuted and stripped of their rights and freedom.

It is pertinent to recognize and address the expanding territory of these extremist seminaries and the ongoing human rights violations occurring against the people of Sindh.  Please join us for a briefing on the human rights situation in the province of Sindh.

If you have any questions, please contact Annie Yea with Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez (Annie.Yea@mail.house.gov).
