Concerning the rights of minorities in Pakistan - here are some news
"Christians have demanded the immediate release of Human Liberation Commission of Pakistan (HLCP) Chairman Aslam Pervaiz Sahotra, condemning his arrest in the Youhanabad lynching case."
Concerned by a recent discussion about the writer Günther Schwab, one of the founders of the "World Union for Protection of Life", I have bought the novel "Adventures on the River", published by Kremayr & Scheriau in Vienna, and I have read the book in the meantime. It is not just a novel (312 pages), but it also contains very impressive descriptions of adventures in nature. Much can be explained or deduced from his personal experiences as a forester. The book is written in the first person and contains almost no name or place. The only name is that of his dog. Based on the descriptions of landscapes as well as the mentioned species of animals and plants, the plot may be located in Central and Eastern Europe. The period of the story extends over several years. The end remains uncertain about the further life of the storytelling Ego: "I want to try something what can never succeed in the future: To be truly human."
