    FILE - In this May 27, 2012 file photo, police baton charge Nepal's Brahmins and Chhetri society members who tried to enter restricted area as they take out a demonstration near the Constitution Assembly building in Katmandu, Nepal, as they demanded that states proposed in the new constitution should not be determined on the basis of ethnicity. For centuries, the resentments simmered in this Himalayan nation, a place where everyone knew who belonged to the country's small elite and who did not. Ethnic minorities and low-caste Nepalis knew they had little chance to join the economic and political leadership, which was dominated by high-caste members of just two ethnic groups among the country's dozens. Now, as Nepal struggles to create a stable republic, those resentments have erupted anew, with regional, ethnic-based politics that helped cause the government's complete collapse last weekend and sparked worries of widespread ethnic unrest.

    In this photo taken Monday, March 12, 2012, a security guard looks out of the window of the worship place of the Ahmedis in the center of Islamabad, Pakistan. Ahmedis are reviled by mainstream Muslims as heretics believing that a promised Islamic messiah, Mirza Ghulam Ahmed, came more than 100 years ago. His arrival is still being awaited by mainstream Muslims. Pakistan's constitution has made it a crime for Ahmedi's to call themselves Muslims or to practice their faith as Muslims. Targeted assassinations, mob gatherings led by outlawed Islamic extremists groups outside places of worship and now a spike in forced conversions has Pakistan's religious minorities wondering if they have a place in Pakistan.

    Members of Sexual Minorities Uganda, a gay advocate non-government organization at the opening of fourth annual sexual and gender based violence/persecution awareness campaign week in the capital city Kampala, Uganda, Monday March 19, 2012. Four years ago, Frank Mugisha had to beg his gay colleagues to join him for his first-ever demonstration for gay rights. Today, dozens of gay Ugandans join Mugisha in public demonstrations aimed at swaying public opinion. Though parliament has before it a harsh anti-gay bill, Mugisha and his friends are buoyed by a new sense of optimism _ and new legal tactics to help protect the gay community.
