Pakistan's blasphemy laws lead to US advising against travel to the country
Terrorists have actively targeted Americans, the US said.'Religious minority communities have been victims of targeted killings and accusations of blasphemy,' it added
NEW DELHI: The Pakistani government's continual enforcement of blasphemy laws is one among many reasons cited by the US today in warning its citizens against traveling to Pakistan.
"Sectarian violence remains a serious threat throughout Pakistan, and the Government of Pakistan continues to enforce blasphemy laws. Religious minority communities have been victims of targeted killings and accusations of blasphemy," said the advisory published on the state department website.
In fact, US aviation authorities too have issued an advisory to its airmen.
