Amsterdam: Overseas Pakistani Christians in the Netherlands on Wednesday demonstrated against human rights violence suffered by women and girls in the South Asian country.

The protest was organised by Action Committee for Christian Rights, Overseas Pakistan Christian Alliance and Global Human Rights Defence (GHRD), the Netherlands on the occasion of Women’s Day held on March 8, ANI reported.

Violence against women in Pakistan is a problem that cannot be neglected. Right activists suggest that a woman in Pakistani society faces multiple threats because of her gender, read the press release of GHRD as quoted by ANI.

The situation of Hindus, Christians and other religious minorities is worsening in the country. These women are the worst victims of discriminatory attitudes of the authorities, political groups, religious parties and feudal structure, read the release.

Religious minority women and girls are abducted, forcibly converted, forcibly married and abused and their families are unsuccessful in their attempts to challenge these crimes using legal avenues.
