It is sadly informed as CTS Director Ms. Katherine Sapna came to know through sources that a Christian Colony at Gulshan Ravi DhoopSaari Lahore, is attacked by extremists. This area is considered one of the big Christian settlements in Lahore. Muslim extremists threatened for burning Christian houses and local Catholic Church after they alleged Christians for burning the Holy Quran.
CTS team including Ms. Nomee Coordinator, Sunil Karamat Field Officer and Qaiser Yousaf Field Officer, reached at the spot to collect the real facts of the incident. We will keep you informed.
CTS team was the first NGO reached at the sport and reported that there was a heavy security (police) deputed on the spot to rescue Christians who are still inside the houses as several Christians have vacant the places and flee for safety. A mob of Muslim extremists is gathered in the area and they stoned on Christians houses. Muslims are looting the Christian’s houses and steeling valuable things. It seemed that Muslims out of control of the police as there is present District Inspector General of Police (DIG) Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) and Rana Mashood Khan MNA Member of National Assembly (area politician) they trying to negotiate with the Mullas, local Islamic leaders and Ullamas to make the situation better and to promote peace in this area.
DIG of Police have called Elite Force for the security of Christians and to control the situation. Let’s hope for the best as we have many bitter experiences in past and therefore we cannot trust that police can provide properly secure Christians from any mishap.
Once again Christians in Pakistan need prayers as their lives are at great risk. Please stand with Christian brotherhood morally and through Prayers.
