Pakistan: 2 killed in attack on Quetta church 

At least two people were killed and five others wounded when unidentified men opened fire on worshippers exiting a church after the Sunday service in Quetta on April 15.

The bike-borne assailants  targeted the church in Essa Nagri area of the city, Express Tribune reported. Two people were killed in the attack, police said, adding the injured have been hospitalised.

After the attack, the community members with dead bodies staged a protest demonstration and blocked roads disrupting traffic, alleging government’s “failure” to end attacks on Christians, according to the report. Meanwhile, Balochistan Home Minister Mir Sarfaraz Bugti condemned the attack and expressed sorrow over the loss of lives.

The minister also assured action against the culprits, it said. The attack comes two weeks after four members of a Christian family were gunned down in Quetta a day after the community celebrated Easter on April 1. In December last year, nine people were killed and over 40 injured in twin suicide bombings on another Church in Quetta.

    I don’t justify attacks against Christians in India or for that matter against anyone. What I speak against is that Christians never ask themselves what did we do to merit this attack. If they did, they will find the answer and learn to live in peace with others.

    Christians are often attacked and killed in Pakistan and the western media never reports about it. The UN or the Pope doesn’t bother about it! The western media reports immediately if a Palestinian is killed by the Israeli Police. George N. should not justify attacks on Christians in India, pointing out what happens in Pakistan or other countries. We should systematically condemn the attacks or killings of Christians or other minorities wherever it takes place.

    The killing of the Christians by some evil people is getting like a routine. The Pakistan leaders didn’t get enough dose of pressure from the world community as yet.

    On the other hand, whenever my friend Anil Kant conducts Christian concerts and preaching the gospel, no reports of attacks were reported. Met a Pakistan Missionary and he invited me to Pakistan. When I mentioned the attacks against the Christians, he told me in his areas, people are keen to hear the gospel.

    The religious laws of Pakistan are too severe which is totally hard to comprehend in the modern world. Condolence to the bereaved families.
