The aid, collected by a village management committee and mostly made up of food, was intended to be distributed among all needy families of the village. However, when the aid was distributed, Sheikh Abdul Haleem Hamid, a cleric at the local mosque, decided that the food aid would be given to only Muslim families. Not a single Christian family received any aid.Pakistan is overwhelmingly Islamic, with 96% of the population being Muslim. However, there is a small minority of Christians, making up about 1.6% of the population. The Christian minority faces severe discrimination and persecution.
