Hungarian Official To Discuss Pakistani Christian Asylum Seekers


The chairman of the British Pakistani Christian Association has met with the Hungarian embassy official in Thailand to discuss the issue of Pakistani Christian asylum seekers.

Alexandra Peto, the consular at the Hungarian Embassy in Thailand, has confirmed that a 567 page report on persecution in Pakistan and about the UNHCR in Thailand had been submitted to her foreign and home office counterparts in Budapest, reports the Pakistan Christian Post.

Wilson Chowdhry, chairman of the British Pakistani Christian Association, who met Peto, asked her if it might be possible to meet with top officials in Budapest to ensure that Pakistani Christians are not forgotten during the allocation of Christian asylum seekers for their new quotas.

Peto said that the Hungarian embassy is very aware of the increasing levels of persecution of Christians across the globe.

“Since we have started to take emailed copies of UNHCR asylum cards from Christians in Thailand we have been overwhelmed by the numbers of potential applicants from Pakistan,” she said as reported by Pakistan Christian Post.
