Ad Feedback

Pakistani Christians said they want justice following a mob attack on a their colony earlier this month.

A Muslim cleric used a mosque loudspeaker to rally 500 muslims to ransack Christian homes in Kasur.
Doors were broken down and 110 homes were looted and burned.
Some farm animals were killed and Christian women and children were beaten.

"They chanted Allah-hu-Akbar as they broke into our house," one resident said. "I was taking a bath. My mother tried to stop them, but they threw acid on me. I had just a scarf to put on my body and I ran away."

Another victim said the mob broke down her doors and looted everything.

"They also beat me with a stick and robbed me of gold jewelry and money," she said.

Witnesses said the incident began when a Christian field worker driving a tractor asked a Muslim man to move a motorbike that was blocking the road.
The man became enraged and beat the field worker.
Several Muslim leaders have apologized to the Christian community. They have called on police to arrest those responsible for the incident.
