Pakistan: Christians demonstrate, call for Anglican pastor’s release
Catholic World News - June 21, 2011
Christians took to the streets of Attock--a city of 260,000 in Punjab province in northern Pakistan--to call for a more serious police investigation into the May 14 kidnapping of Robin Javed, an Anglican pastor.
“We do not know the reason why he was kidnapped, nor have we been asked for a ransom,” a local Christian told the Fides news agency. “This silence worries us greatly.”
Members of the Taliban are suspected of carrying out the kidnapping.
