[[[Live#][[]] Today: South Korea - Pakistan live 21 August 2023

Aug 4, 2023 — Watch Pakistan's today's match live here. Pakistan will lock horns with South Korea in their second match of the Asian Hockey Champions ...

The local police confirmed there is no law punishing hate speech or clear guidelines on how to handle acts like this. The National Human Rights Commission of Korea, a government agency, said in March that putting pork in front of a mosque under construction to degrade Muslims does amount to hate speech and "should not be tolerated.

And people have used pork and severed pig heads as symbols of anti-Muslim hate in other parts of the world, including in the United States. Kim Jeong-ae, the deputy chair of the residents' committee, argues the barbecue was a camaraderie-building gathering for residents in front of their houses, not an act of hate targeting the Muslim community or the mosque. Kim says the issue is not what the building is, but where.

" Meanwhile, Muslim students and their family members who visit a temporary prayer hall right next to the construction site see the pig heads every time they come. Kim insists the display is done by an individual resident and has nothing to do with the committee. Kim Ji-rim, a lawyer who represents the Muslim community here, says the South Korean legal system lacks a law against hate speech and is unable to judge that the pig heads are targeting Muslims or constitute a punishable offense.

Schools and the government are actively trying to attract more international students, to cope with the dwindling number of college-age Korean students. South Korea's total fertility rate fell to 0. 78 last year, the lowest level among advanced economies. Schools farther away from the capital, Seoul, are especially vulnerable to a shrinking pool of potential students. Several schools have already closed, dealing a blow to the local economy.

Its size fluctuates between 80 and 150 people, according to a community representative. The university's total student body is almost 27, 000. A space to gather and pray In 2014, the Muslim students raised money for a place to gather and pray, bought a house near the university and called it the Dar ul Emaan Kyungpook Islamic Center. The house, just a few minutes' walk from the west gate of campus, was old and too small to accommodate the growing community, community members say. A view of the alleyway leading to the Islamic center. Residents opposed to a mosque's construction on the site sometimes sit at the entrance to the alleyway, watching the area from the yellow tent.

"We are opposed to a public facility being built in the middle of a residential district with no public road. We would have objected to anything, " she says. Residents say they had put up with noise, cooking odors and crowding of the narrow street, and now fear that the inconveniences will only grow with the mosque. "Media reports say the residents are opposing Islam as a religion, but we don't really know about Islam, " says the resident Kim. "We are not interested.

"The tolerance for hate under the existing legal framework is striking, and that is all the more reason for there to be a normative guideline to set a minimum standard and set the bar to tell people why certain actions are wrong, " she says, calling for anti-discrimination legislation. More foreign students come to South Korea The Muslim community at KNU is one part of a fast-growing group of foreigners in South Korea — international students. According to Justice Ministry data, the number of foreign national students enrolled in Korean colleges and universities surpassed 200, 000 this year, compared to around 11, 000 in 2001, when the government released a plan to recruit more international students.

When the students asked the police and the district office to remove the pig heads, the authorities responded there's nothing they could do under the current law, Kim says. A banner hung in the alleyway opposes the mosque's construction, and says that Korean citizens' interests should be come first. At right, a replica pig's head sits on a chair, and next to it, a few feet from the Islamic center sits a refrigerator with three pig heads in it. The district office of Buk-gu, Daegu, told NPR it cannot dispose of the pig heads, which it regards as private possessions placed on private property.

KNU sociology professor Yi Sohoon, however, says South Korea can and must regulate hateful actions as a state party of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. But "there isn't anyone implementing it, so accountability and enforcement is an issue here, " says Yi.

" The commission can investigate rights violations against social minorities, but its intervention is limited to making recommendations to relevant authorities. In the meantime, the lawyer Kim says, the students submitted a petition to the United Nations special rapporteurs on migrant rights and freedom of religion reporting the issues and are awaiting their confirmation that the residents' actions are discriminatory. Since 2007, South Korea has made several attempts to legislate a comprehensive law that prohibits discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation, race, religion, disability, age and other factors.

To the current parliament alone, four separate bills of this kind have been formally proposed. All past attempts have been unsuccessful, due to fierce and organized opposition led by conservative Protestant churches. Christianity has the largest religious following in South Korea, with 20% identifying as Protestant in a 2022 survey by Hankook Research. Razaq says conservative evangelical groups' involvement in this issue — holding rallies, issuing statements and participating in mediation meetings — has intensified tensions and hampered dialogue with residents.
