While Christian people living in the free or Non Muslim world were celebrating Christmas 2012, things were not going to well for the Christians of Pakistan.
The Pakistan Christian Post website, which is a news source for Pakistani Christians tells of the frightening and dangerous time that Pakistani Christians have faced trying to celebrate Christmas.
The Christian Post said:
“a Muslim mob equipped with lethal weapons was firing at innocent Christian worshipers who were coming out of different Churches in Iqbal Town of capital city of Pakistan Islamabad.
It was 12:00 noon, in Iqbal Town in Islamabad, on December 25, 2012, when Christian worshipers were coming out of different Churches after performing Christmas prayers, more than one hundred Muslim extremists equipped with automatic rifles, pistols and sticks attacked the Christian women, children and men.
Ashraf Masih, when running to save his life was hit with bullet in his leg, Iqbal Masih received bullet injuries in his leg and arm, Shahzad Masih was injured fell on ground and was beaten with sticks mercilessly by mob, Yousaf Masih was seriously injured while more than one dozen Christian women, men and children received injuries.”
Christians persecuted beaten and killed, Christians and others treated as second or even third class citizens, rapes and forced conversions to Islam all go on in Pakistan. How the Christians are treated by other Pakistanis truly shows that Pakistan is a world class shithole.
