    Many of the villagers had nothing after the incident, except the clothes they wore on the day of the incident. After the incident, many Muslim shopkeepers refused to sell food to Christians in Khanewal. The deputy commissioner of Khanewal gave only forty bags of flour and one hundred and eighty blankets and five hundred rupees to each of 200 families whose total loss was millions of rupees. There was a plan to attack a few other Christian villages but during that time the army began to guard those places.


    In Christian Colony, all the shops were burnt and about fifteen hundred homes were set to fire. The extremists surrounded Christian Colony from all sides for hours. In the procession, nearly everyone was armed and it appeared as if they were preparing for a great battle. The Christians said later that in those days they saw death face to face. For two days, the women and children remained terror-stricken.


    According to one estimate, the crowd destroyed about one thousand houses and reduced thirteen churches to ashes in Khanewal, Shanti Nagar and in the surrounding areas. The 85 percent of Shanti Nagar was ruined. Thousands of copies of the Bible and other religious books were burnt.



    After 1947, it was the second attack on minorities on a large scale. In 1989, there was an attack on Chak Sekunder on the Ahmedis, another minority that is a splinter group of Islam. This attack on Shanti Nagar was the second one and the first on the entire Christians of a village. In that storm of 1947, several Muslims in India saved their lives from the Hindus and the Sikhs by displaying the cross in front of their houses or wearing it to indicate they were Christians. The same section of the society, which had saved the lives of many Muslims in 1947, fell victim to their frenzy in 1997. It is all because of the separate electorate system and the blasphemy laws, which were introduced by Zia-ul-Haq.


    LAHORE: An enraged mob torched dozens of houses located in a Christian-dominated neighbourhood of Lahore on Saturday, DawnNews reported.

    The mob attacked the houses in Joseph Colony in Badami Bagh police precincts in the provincial capital following allegations of blasphemy against a Christian man. The man was booked under Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).

    It appeared that the man had been falsely accused of blasphemy but the police was forced to register a case to placate the mob, a local police official said.

    Speaking to a private television channel, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said the accused man was in police custody.



    Sanaullah said all those involved in the arson would be arrested, adding that his government would try to rehabilitate the affected Christian families.

    Two men walked into a Protestant church close to the American Embassy this morning, in one of the most guarded areas in one of the most secure cities in Pakistan, and threw several grenades. Five people were killed, including an embassy employee and her daughter, a high school senior.

    At least 40 people were wounded, many critically, most of them foreigners.

    The blasts sundered bodies of worshipers and sent blood flying across the simple hall where the worshipers were listening to the sermon, having just finished singing ''This Is Holy Ground.'' After the outburst, a man's black loafer lay by the long table where white coffee cups were arranged for the post-service congregants.

    The attack targeted the Protestant International Church, a nondenominational church in the diplomatic enclave here, 400 yards from the sprawling embassy compound, where glistening razor-wire coils along the top of brick walls. Life had been returning to normal at the embassy, with relatives of the diplomats only recently having come back after being sent home after Sept. 11.

    The mob attacked the houses in Joseph Colony in Badami Bagh police precincts in the provincial capital following allegations of blasphemy against a Christian man. The man was booked under Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).

    It appeared that the man had been falsely accused of blasphemy but the police was forced to register a case to placate the mob, a local police official said.

    Speaking to a private television channel, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said the accused man was in police custody.



    Sanaullah said all those involved in the arson would be arrested, adding that his government would try to rehabilitate the affected Christian families.

    story pakistan






    Many of the villagers had nothing after the incident, except the clothes they wore on the day of the incident. After the incident, many Muslim shopkeepers refused to sell food to Christians in Khanewal. The deputy commissioner of Khanewal gave only forty bags of flour and one hundred and eighty blankets and five hundred rupees to each of 200 families whose total loss was millions of rupees. There was a plan to attack a few other Christian villages but during that time the army began to guard those places.


    In Christian Colony, all the shops were burnt and about fifteen hundred homes were set to fire. The extremists surrounded Christian Colony from all sides for hours. In the procession, nearly everyone was armed and it appeared as if they were preparing for a great battle. The Christians said later that in those days they saw death face to face. For two days, the women and children remained terror-stricken.


    According to one estimate, the crowd destroyed about one thousand houses and reduced thirteen churches to ashes in Khanewal, Shanti Nagar and in the surrounding areas. The 85 percent of Shanti Nagar was ruined. Thousands of copies of the Bible and other religious books were burnt.



    After 1947, it was the second attack on minorities on a large scale. In 1989, there was an attack on Chak Sekunder on the Ahmedis, another minority that is a splinter group of Islam. This attack on Shanti Nagar was the second one and the first on the entire Christians of a village. In that storm of 1947, several Muslims in India saved their lives from the Hindus and the Sikhs by displaying the cross in front of their houses or wearing it to indicate they were Christians. The same section of the society, which had saved the lives of many Muslims in 1947, fell victim to their frenzy in 1997. It is all because of the separate electorate system and the blasphemy laws, which were introduced by Zia-ul-Haq.


    LAHORE: An enraged mob torched dozens of houses located in a Christian-dominated neighbourhood of Lahore on Saturday, DawnNews reported.

    The mob attacked the houses in Joseph Colony in Badami Bagh police precincts in the provincial capital following allegations of blasphemy against a Christian man. The man was booked under Section 295-C of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).

    It appeared that the man had been falsely accused of blasphemy but the police was forced to register a case to placate the mob, a local police official said.

    Speaking to a private television channel, Punjab Law Minister Rana Sanaullah said the accused man was in police custody.
