The Christian sentenced to death for blasphemy has been ill with chicken pox, probably because of the unhygienic conditions of the cell where she is kept. Christians concern for the growing violence against them. Bishop Rufin Anthony: "This Lent we pray for peace in Pakistan. A Pakistan where we can all live freely."
Most people can certainly live in Pakistan, just not freely.
Pakistan since its creation has been a monument to intolerance -- it was created for Muslims and its purpose is to be an Islamic state. The discrimination and persecution of non-Muslims has intensified over the years because as the numbers of non-Muslims dwindle it becomes easier for the Muslim thugs to harrass them.
They can pray for peace but prepare for worse.
