ICV calls community meeting on Peshawar Church incident

Pr. Samuel Gori

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ!

This is to share with grief and sorrow that the death toll in All Saints Church, Kohati Bazar, Peshawar – Pakistan is on rise, which is very alarming.

The recent situation, which has been convened by Dr. Paul Bhatti, who is present with his colleagues at the site informed us that the situation here is very sad indeed. The whole community is in state of shock and grief. Every single family has either loved one/s slept in Christ or in critical situation. This is a matter of serious concern.

Since this incident took place on Sunday, the day of our Lord, when we are supposed to pray and spend time with God. Furthermore, we also request that pastors and religious leaders should come forward and should lead a joint prayer service. ICV will support any such prayer meeting, lead by community pastors. ICV also needs your prayers as soon we will announce our program in this regard.

ICV strongly condemn this brutal attack, which has shed blood of innocent Pakistani-Christians, ICV stands with those brothers and sisters in Peshawar who had loss of their loved ones pray that Lord God may grant them His peace to bear this loss. We will not tolerate this cowardly act which has made the entire community grief. ICV will take a strong step to condemn this act, please remember us in your prayers so that we may act effectively.

An emergency community meeting has been arranged tonight at 7:30 PM, all community leaders and pastors are requested to join us and support us with your valuable suggestion.
