Christians endure more attacks in Punjab

ICC Note

Muslim militants carried out attacks against Christians in Punjab, Pakistan. Many Christians were severely beaten.

10/05/2010 Pakistan (MNN)-A mob of angry Muslims went on a rampage September 23rd in the Gujarat district, Punjab province, Pakistan. 

Their target: dozens of Christians. Voice of the Martyrs Canada confirms a mob of 40 militants fired shots at homes and individuals in the streets and beat some Christians severely, leaving them for dead.   

According to a report from Compass Direct News, ten families were targeted for the attacks. There are rumors that three powerful politicians instigated the mob, but that has yet to be substantiated. 

Pray that authorities will act justly and with integrity in this case. Pray that Christians in Pakistan will take comfort in the promise of the Lord that those who suffer with Christ will also be glorified with Him. There are more needs. Click here.
