Islamabad, June 1 (ANI): A Pakistan based Christian political party is seeking ''mass asylum'' to the U.S., European Union, Canada and Australia. Pakistan Christian National Party (PCNP) has claimed that the upcoming ''right-wing'' government poses a threat to their community. In a report by Daily Times, the party has submitted its requests to various diplomatic missions and international communities calling them for help. PCNP chairman Joseph M Frances accused Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) of having strong links with banned militant outfits, including Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Sipah-e-Sahaba (SSP) and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi. He further added that PML-N has direct involvement in the Joseph Colony attack on the Christian community. Frances has demanded that the authorities should set up a commission to probe the Joseph colony carnage and provide the community with security, the report added. (ANI)
