‘Evident fear’ among Pakistani Christians

Catholic World News - September 22, 2010

“There are no imminent threats, but there is still fear evident among the Christian community,” said Father Diego Saleh, chancellor of the Diocese of Karachi. “In Pakistan, we Christians are in a precarious condition: we do not know what may happen in the next five minutes.”
