We raise this on a regular basis at a senior level with the authorities in Pakistan. The UK supports UN Human Rights Council Resolution 16/18 which calls upon states to adopt measures and policies to promote the full respect for and protection of places of worship and religious sites, including cemeteries and shrines.
