    Police in Bangkok Thailand are in the process of making another mass arrest of Pakistani Christians who have been forced to flee because of the violence and threats of Islamist militias who are closely tied to the Pakistani government. The reason that the Christians fled to Bangkok is that there is a United Nations High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR) office there and Pakistani Christians are allowed to travel there on tourist visas. Unfortunately the UNHCR takes years to process their applications for asylum and turns down most of them. In the meantime the Pakistani Christians are not allowed to work in Thailand and because their tourist visas expire before their case can be adjudicated by the UNHCR, the Thai government rounds them up to either return them to arrest and/or death in Pakistan or charge them an exorbitant fine. Please contact the Thai embassy and let them know that as Christians we do not take their persecution either in Pakistan or Thailand lightly, and that we pledge to boycott Thai tourism, which is a mainstay of their economy. You can make use of the below message and feel free to adjust it or add to it. God Bless TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN We have been made aware that the government of Thailand is in the process of conducting another mass arrest of persecuted and threatened Christian Pakistanis. As you are aware, the reason that persecuted and threatened Pakistani Christians go to Bangkok is the presence of a UNHCR office in that location. Adding to their misery is the fact that they are not allowed to work while in Thailand, and because the UNHCR takes years to process their applications for asylum they are forced to overstay their tourist visas. Worse yet, they are then often arrested. Unless or until the government of Thailand institutes a humane policy towards the persecuted and threatened Pakistani Christians in their midst, I will not travel as a tourist to Thailand and will urge all those in my circle to do likewise.
