| A majority of Muslim countries get away with apartheid - Pakistan: Ad for sewer workers “only for non-Muslims”

Jihad Watch : Islamic law forbids non-Muslims to hold authority over Muslims,
relegating them to the most menial jobs in society; the Qur’an says that
the polytheists (among whom are numbered Christians, for believing in
the Trinity and the divinity of Christ, cf. Qur’an 5:17, 5:72, 5:116)
are “unclean” (9:28). Hence this specification is entirely
Sharia-compliant. “PAKISTAN: Non-Muslims forced to do sanitary work,” Asian Human Rights Commission, July 11, 2017 ( The Religion of Peace):
In an act of blatant discrimination against the Christian
religious minority, and an infringement of Article 27 of the
Constitution of Pakistan, the Hyderabad Municipal Corporation has
invited applications for the job of sewers from Non-Muslims only.
Moreover, applicants are required to take an oath on their religious
holy book – Geeta or Bible – that they will never do anything else but
work as a sanitary worker, and will never refuse to carry out the work.
This is not the first time that Article 27, which provides safeguards
against discrimination in services or employment, has been so blatantly
trampled upon. The government has adopted a systemic policy of
reserving sanitation posts for non-Muslims. On 18 September 2015, the
Mandi Bahauddin, Punjab province’s District Head Quarter Hospital,
publicized 10 vacancies, where sanitation jobs were reserved for
A similar advertisement was issued by the Lady Wellington
Hospital in Lahore, requiring only “non-Muslims” for this work. In 2015,
the Punjab Cardiology Hospital issued an advertisement in several
newspapers, which stated that “Only Non-Muslims persons who belong to
minorities will be accommodated” for sanitation work.
advertisement was later redacted, it was made publicly clear that
sanitation work was beneath the Muslim majority population.
