Mr. Saleem Khursheed Khokhar said that Christian Colony Peshawar attack shows that the unknown persons do not want that the God’s work to happen, they tried to attack on Christianity. Ms. Jacqueline Sultan said that nobody can stop God’s work and Christian will continue to work for God despite of threats and attacks.

They want to stop the progress and development of the country and create fear in people Pakistan. They also strongly condemned the attack on Mardan District Courts where six lawyers and two policemen were dead amongst 13 and 52 wounded in suicide bomb blast and expressed sympathy with bereaved families.

The current government has a long way to go but is exhibiting signs of good governance towards minorities. The fact that Christians are so often the target in terrorists’ plots is starting register and security strategies have improved as a consequence.
