Pakistan: 2 Christians kidnapped, woman tortured
March 02, 2012
Thirty residents of the village of Kot Meerath in the eastern Pakistani province of Punjab brutally tortured Seema Bibi, a Christian woman, and paraded her through the streets because of her “anti-Islam” views. Police have made 26 arrests.
In addition, gunmen in Karachi, the nation’s largest city, kidnapped two Pakistani Christians who worked for a hospital administered by a South Korean charity.
“It is important to realize that it’s not simply Christians that are being targeted by violence and kidnappings” in Karachi, Columban Father Robert McCulloch told Vatican Radio. “It’s Sunnis, Shias, Ismaili, whatever it is.”
