Christian gunned down in Pakistan
Catholic World News - August 08, 2011
A 38-year-old layman has been gunned down in Pakistan’s largest city.
Arnold Archie Dass was slain in front of dozens of onlookers in the oldest Christian neighborhood in Karachi. In the decades since property values have risen in the neighborhood, members of the “Muslim land mafia” have been harassing area Christians, the Pakistan Christian Post reported; the area is now predominantly Muslim.
