Incident of Joseph Colony Bandami bagh Lahore, Pakistan. Injured the Christians hearts.
When I heard about the incident I couldn’t stay in my house at Faisalabad so, I went to the Lahore and visited the Joseph colony and saw the burnt houses near about 250 and miserable condition of the Christian people. I have no words to explain my feelings about the people who were weeping with this grief. When I came to know that the base of this incident was a hard talking among the Christian and Muslim Youth in a Snooker Club. Where a Christian boy Sawan Masih was blamed that he talked about Prophet Muhammad. A Muslim boy went to the Masque and announced to the Muslims come forward and attack on the Christians houses. The Government of Punjab was aware about it but they couldn’t protect the houses. I also came to know that Punjab police asked the Christian to leave their houses. It seems that police was not able to protect the Christian people or didn’t want to protect. It shows the sincerity of the government to words the Christians. At present all the Christians in Pakistan are worried about them and are feeling insecure. I request all the Christians all over the world to pray for the Christians in Pakistan specially for the habitant of Joseph colony. I also request to help them to fulfill their needs.
