Christians in Pakistan are now giving their children Islamic names to help them avoid persecution and abuse, according to Bishop Samson Shukardin of Hyderabad, Pakistan.

This practice is especially being done to help minority children avoid targeted abuse in the country’s public school system.

“Many minorities give their children Islamic names, so they will not be singled out as Christians and become targets for discrimination in primary or secondary schools or at the college level,” Bishop Shukardin told Aid to the Church in Need. “In many cases, minority students do suffer abuse in public schools.”

Across Pakistan, Christians face widespread discrimination and instances of outright persecution. False blasphemy accusations, mob violence, abductions, and rape only name a few of the abuses Pakistani Christians are forced to endure because of the faith. For many, to be a Christian in Pakistan is to be treated as a second class citizen, International Christian Concern reports.
