The Gojra killings, in which the Christian minority has been targeted, are not an isolated incident. The fascistic attitude of several religious groups has become a scar on the face of Pakistan and, if not checked, will disfigure it beyond recognition.

Any religion or 'ism' that becomes dogmatic, is bound to become intolerant and fascistic.
