Profanity in opposition to Islam is extremely a delicate issue in Pakistan. LAHORE, Pakistan ó Thousands of sizzling Muslims on Saturday afire more than 150 houses of Pakistani Christians over a sacrilege line up in the eastern city of Lahore. At least 160 houses, 18 shops and two small churches were smashed up by the protesters.
I value the true thoughts of Pakistan's President Asif Ali Zardari and Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf who have ordered an instant inquisition into the assault. On behalf of the Christian Community, I would like to credit President Asif Ali Zardari who has called for a report into this ill-timed unpleasant incident and said such acts of defacement against minorities blemish the canvas of the country. I express thanks to the Private Pakistani TV channels showed the recording of ferocity from the scene as many masked members of the mob scratched and flamed households.
Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf is too being thanked who has issued a decree for a prompt inquiry and measures to stop recurrence of such incidents in future. I will be highly thankful to the Punjab Government and Provincial law minister Rana Sanaullah if they bring justice to my people. I believe these people have committed a serious crime... there is no moral, legal or religious ground to indulge in such an act. I pray for the people who are wretched. God bless my people and Pakistan.
