Attacks on Christians in Pakistan

June 16, 2016

The Pakistani bishops’ justice and peace commission has lamented recent attacks on Christians in Lahore.

“Police behavior shows a biased mindset,” according to Cecil Chaudhry, the commission’s executive director. “Strong action is needed to guarantee the rights of people and hold the culprits accountable.”

On May 17, a group of 20 people beat and kicked a Christian for selling ice cream to Muslim children, according to UCA news.

On June 4, two gunmen opened fire on the doors of St. Joseph Church; no one was injured. Eight days later, a policeman entered a Protestant service and slapped the pastor.
