Pakistan: Muslims burn down Catholic home, police ignore incident
February 16, 2010
Three Muslim brothers in the eastern Pakistani village of Shadokey burned down the house of a Catholic family after Walayat Masih, the father of the family, refused to sell them the home. The Muslim brothers demanded that Masih and his family “convert to Islam.” Instead of investigating the incident, local police threatened the family as well.
0.07% of Pakistan’s 159.7 million people are Catholic.
