Peace for Asia Switzerland is organizing a symposium on South Asian minority rights. South Asian minorities are subject to harsh abuse and victimization by their respective Governments, sectarian lords, religious heads and extra judicial structure. Communities face ostrasication, enforced economic hardship, ethnic cleansing and forced out from their homelands. Kangaroo courts, and local administrations used their heavy hand against Ahamadiyas and Chistians in Pakistan, Tamils in Sri Lanka, Rohingayas in Myanmar. Millions had to flee their homes as refugees seeking asylum in neighboring Asian and/or EU nations. Experts from various global institutions will present their view in this subject.
