ICC has received a report about an attack on Christians in the ‘Essa Nigir’ suburbs of Lahore , Pakistan .
Moslems attacked the homes of Christians in this community and forced them to flee during the last week of Jan. ’05. One Christian was killed and scores of others were seriously injured and were forced to flee their homes (some of the families have returned).
Some of the christian representatives succeeded to bring the families back. Pray that there is truce between the two communities.
Christians make just the 2% of population in Pakistan where Islam is the state religion.
The Christian population is continually oppressed and attacked. Extremists are too strong politically to be controlled by the authorities.
