Saturday the 14th - INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN VOICE - Free Joomla 3.2 Templates

International Christian Voice is very shocked to hear about the news of a Christian couple in Pakistan being burned alive today for allegedly burning verses of the holy Quran. We strongly condemn this horrific attack.

This is not the first time that the Christian community in Pakistan is targeted for accusations of blasphemy. Seven people were burnt alive in Gojra while Christian homes and villages were burnt to ashes as well as attacks on Joseph Colony in Lahore, Korian Village and Sangla Hill amongst many others that have been targeted and attacked. Christian lives and properties are not safe in their own homeland.  

It is also very disappointing that none of the culprits behind these attacks have been brought to justice.

International Christian Voice Canada demands the government of Pakistan to bring justice to those who are behind the incidents of violence and provide assurance of protection to the Christians and other religious minorities of Pakistan. We also ask the Canadian government and human rights organizations to discuss this issue with the Pakistani government.

We request all of you to raise this issue with the Pakistani government for the protection and security of the religious minorities of Pakistan while remembering them in your daily prayers.

Please also pray for the three young children of this couple as well as their family and friends that God grant them peace and comfort during this difficult time.

May God Almighty protect the minorities of Pakistan against all injustices and inhuman attacks.
