Anti-Christian Violence Continues in Pakistan

(CNSNews.com) – Anti-Christian violence continues in Pakistan and police are not pursuing the perpetrators, according to news reports.

A May 26 article in AsiaNews.it described the gang-rape of a Christian woman and the desecration of Christian tombs in the Pakistani city of Faisalabad. The publication called it “ordinary violence visited upon Pakistan’s Christian minority.”

The Pakistan Christian Post first reported the violence, including information about Muslim landowners using tractors to desecrate a Christian graveyard. Buried caskets were broken and bones of the dead were brought to the surface, the newspaper reported.

A Faisalabad chapter of the National Commission for Justice and Peace of the Pakistani Catholic Church has intervened in the cases, which sent a team to the site to collect evidence.

A Muslim man has filed a claim with the courts in the case, saying that the land where the cemetery is located belongs to him.

The Rev. Joseph Jamil condemned the violence and told AsiaNews.it that the Pakistani government should “take charge of the situation and defend the minority.”

Ezekiel 39:7 “So I will make My holy name known among My people Israel and will no longer allow it to be profaned. Then the nations will know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.”

Yahweh today, is taking the nations, as well as the false Shepherds and their misguided flocks to task; He is making His name known.

Just as Yahweh used Ezekiel to warn Israel, and Moses to warn the Gentile Nation (Egypt) of His Sovereignty over creation, we are doing this in our Ministry today.
