Home of Christian Parliamentarian in Pakistan Attacked by Gunmen
05/11/2020 Pakistan (International Christian Concern) – According to local reports, the home of a Christian parliamentarian in Pakistan was attacked by four gunmen in late April. The parliamentarian claims the attack was motivated by his vocal support for the rights and protections of religious minorities in Pakistan.
On April 29, four unidentified motorcyclists open fire on the home of Khalil Tahir Sindu, a Christian member of the Provincial Assembly of Punjab. Fortunately, Sindu was not home when the attack took place and his family has already been moved to Canada for security reasons.
“CCTV cameras show that four unidentified attackers open gunfire at my house around 10:15 to 10:20 pm,” Sindu shared with local media. “However, these attacks will never detach me from my community.”
According to Sindu, he has experienced similar attacks in the past. He suspects that these attacks are linked to the his vocal support for Pakistan’s Christians and other minority communities.
