Muslim extremists raid Pakistani Protestant church
Catholic World News - February 23, 2012
Several members of a Pakistani Protestant congregation were seriously injured when a Muslim mob attacked the church, in the latest of a long series of violent assaults on the country’s religious minority.
Grace Ministry Church in Faisalabad was a target because of complaints that its members were trying to convert Muslims to Christianity. A dozen armed men participated in the attack on the church. One member of the congregation was critically injured by gunfire; another was beaten and pushed off a roof.
