Pakistani Christians face threats since killing of Osama bin Laden
Catholic World News - May 19, 2011
Christians in Pakistan have faced a new wave of hostility, and often violence, since the death of Osama bin Laden.
The parish priest in Abbotabad, where US forces shot and killed the terrorist leader, says that the Christian minority there still faces a “critical” situation. Father Javed Akram Gill said that “every time the Americans say or do something, Christians become the number-one target.”
