Jewish Exodus From Arab and Muslim Countries - Exodus From Non-Arab Muslim Countries - Pakistan

At the time of Pakistani independence in 1947, some 1,300 Jews remained in Karachi, most of them Bene Israel Jews, observing Sephardic Jewish rites. The exodus of Jewish refugees from Pakistan to Bombay and other cities in India came just prior to the creation of Israel in 1948, when many Muslims, including Muhajirs, committed violent anti-Semitic acts against the Bene Israel Jews of Karachi and other Jewish communities in Pakistan. By 1953, fewer than 500 Jews were reported to reside in all of Pakistan. Anti-Jewish sentiment and violence often flared during ensuing conflicts in the Middle East, resulting in a further movement of Jewish refugees out of Pakistan.
