Night of 30th July turned out hour of catastrophe for the innocent Christian children, men and women when a gang of Muslim Extremists attacked their homes wildly. The sight of 56 Christian houses burning in unison in Village No. 362 GB Koriyan, which is situated near city Gojra of District Toba Tek Singh, gave a terrible sight.
There was a marriage ceremony of a Christian in village Koriyan on Sunday where large gathering of Children, Women and Men of relatives were present for celebration.
The Muslim to take revenge for a personal conflict accused one boy in home of marriage ceremony that he has burnt down the pages of Holy Koran. The elders of Christians and Muslims in village met to resolve the matter on clarification of Christian youth that he has not burnt pages of Koran.
On night of July 30, 2009, at 9:00 PM the Muslims of Village Korian announced on loudspeakers of mosque to gather and teach lesson to infidel Christians who are protecting accused of blasphemy on burning holy pages of Koran. The nearby villages also made same announcements from mosque and Muslims gathered before homes of Christians in large numbers.
“Allha Oh Akbar” “Kill infidels” and Muslim mob started setting on fire homes of Christians. As it was night the Christian Children, Women and Men with fear locked their doors to hide inside.. Children, Women and Men are also burnet to death inside homes.
It is fifth incident of burning homes of Christian in Pakistan one of which is when Muslim mob on accusation of blasphemy attacked village Bahamin Wala in district Kasur on July 1, 2009.
There is prevalent fright among Christians of Pakistan on safety and security of life from attacks of extremist Muslims and misuse of blasphemy laws.
Matthew 5:11 “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.”
Please… pray for the wellbeing of Christians of Pakistan. Please… pray for the Muslims so that the Lord may give them a kind heart and peace of mind. Please… pray for the rehabilitation of the victims. Please… pray so that they could build their homes again. Please… pray for patience for them.
Thank you for your prayers.
Let God be magnified!
