|Mr. A Bhutto a leader of the first group adopted a genocidal policy towards the Christians of Pakistan. He butchered the Christians in Rawalpindi near Punjab house on Aug 30,1972, captured by force hundreds of Christian school and colleges, confiscated church property worth billions and got registered False, frivolousand fabricated cases under section 02, 307, 148, 149, 332, 333, 335, 353, 188, 440, 365 and 13/20/65 against the writer of these lines and his 44 companions.

The second group is headed by Gen.Parvez Mashraf .he is no doubt a military ruler but he has followed a Pro-Christian policy .he is determined to denationalize the Christian educational institutions and hand them over to the church organizations in the wider interest of Pakistan. The Christians of Pakistan hail and welcome it but some people with vested interest are making nefarious, vicious and poisonous propaganda to foil the policy of the govt.
