The said study was conducted to evaluate the religious minority rights in the rural areas of Sheikhupura, Pakistan during 2009-10. The overall objective of the study was to explore the level of provision of basic human rights to religious minorities living in the rural areas of Pakistan and to know about the satisfaction level of religious minorities about the availability of their fundamental human rights. For this purpose, one hundred and twenty households from the rural areas of Sheikhupura which were representatives of the whole district's religious minorities were selected by using the simple random sampling technique. The analysis of the data revealed that religious minorities are not represented in different sectors of life (for example, employment sector) appropriately and adequately. So, the religious minorities in the area of study were satisfied to least extent to the government policies of Pakistan.
