A Defending Crusader…

The best defense is to be good and offensive…or something like that.

Persecution of the Day

Posted by Godefroi on August 20, 2007

In Pakistan, from Compass Direct.

Christians and Hindus in northern Pakistan have received dozens of letters threatening them with death if they refuse to become Muslims, church sources and a police official said yesterday. Police continued to provide security around churches and temples this week, even as Christians received new deadlines for converting to Islam. Though the original August 10 deadline for conversion has passed, Peshawar’s minorities continue to live in fear, canceling church activities and skipping services, a Catholic priest said. A spokesman for the Church of Pakistan said that on August 7 some of the letters had been thrown into the courtyards of Christian and Hindu homes in Peshawar’s Kohati, Interior City and Cantonment districts. Peshawar Catholic priest Yousaf Amanat said that he had received a letter by mail telling him to convert to Islam by Tuesday (August 14). “I was away from the parish, and when I came on Monday evening the post was on my desk,” Amanat said. “It was written that if we don’t become Muslim we will be killed.”
