Christian massacre routine in Pakistan: DC conference today
Killing of Christians in Pakistan on pretext to blasphemy law, situation of religious minorities and anniversary of Gojra massacre are main issues to be highlighted in speakers conference
WASHINGTON DC: A galaxy of speakers have been assembled to condemn the murder of two Christian brothers in Faisalabad last week, to observe the first anniversary of the horrific killings of Christians in Gora Town, Punjab, Pakistan, and to protest the continued plight of the lovers of Jesus there.
The Pakistan Christian Congress PCC, under chairmanship of Dr. Nazir S Bhatti, is organizing the protest meeting on Monday, August 2, at 3 pm in Washington DC.
Rapists and killers of Christians never get punished in Pakistan and a black law called blaphemy law is used to target them. The plight of the minority Hindus is no better.
Strangely enough, even a groupo called Ahmeddiya or Qadianis who call tehmselves Muslims have been declred kafir or infidels and are among the most persecuted group in Pakistan.
