Touched by the situations that religious minorities where facing in Pakistan, he founded Human Rights Focus Pakistan (HRFP) in 1994.

In his address Mr. Walter said that he will carry on his efforts to make a change in society until the human rights of religious minorities and marginalized groups are restored according to the vision of the founding father of Pakistan, Muhammed Ali Jinnah; “You are free; you are free to go to your temples. You are free to go to your mosques or to any other places of worship in this State of Pakistan. You may belong to any religion, caste or creed—that has nothing to do with the business of the state.”
