BEWARE OF THEIR HIDDEN AGENDA

islamic_rage_boy

In Pakistan, Ahmedi and Shia hate and persecute Christians just like the majority religion Sunni. They are all one and they have no difference. They purposely show this difference. Ahmedi and Shia are have equal rights, many properties and big businesses in Pakistan. They apply for asylum in Western countries so they can just preach their faith and do cultural jihad in those countries. The world should be aware of them and instead give asylum to Pakistani Christians because they really need protection.

26 YEARS OLD CHRISTIAN MAN MURDERED IN PAKISTAN

 

Waqas Masih who was just 26 years old was murdered by Civil Lines Police in Gujrat City of Pakistan. This young man was the only brother of 4 sisters. He was the sole breadwinner in his family and on top of that his father was diagnosed with Hepatitis C, treatment of which costs a lot of money. Pakistani Christians are facing a planned genocide, terrorists and government of Pakistan, both have just one goal which is to wipe outChristians from the country. America, Europe and other western countries are ignorant as usual and are not recognizing the genocide of Pakistani Christians which is why Pakistani Government and terrorists kill Christians without any fear. There was never any resolution in the United Nations Security Council on the subject of Christian persecution in Pakistan but when it comes to Palestine, there is always a resolution and everyone is protesting for them. We strongly condemn this incident and pray for Pakistani Christians.

ACID ATTACK ON A CHRISTIAN GIRL IN PAKISTAN FOR NOT ACCEPTING ISLAM

The name of this 25 years old Christian girl is Asma Yaqoob aka Maria, she was being forced to become a Muslim but she did not convert. After that a local Muslim cleric asked everyone to punish her for not accepting Islam. Then some men broke into her house, dragged her out and a Muslim man named Rizwan Gujjar put acid on her face. 31113552_10155722249754576_7759720536124424192_nNow she is admitted in Mayo Hospital Lahore and is in a critical situation. As usual, Government, Judiciary and Media of Pakistan are silent on this. Pakistani Christians have no one in Pakistan and even the Western Countries ignore them. I said this before and I will say it again that this is a planned genocide of Christians and the world does not care. I appeal everyone to please pray for Asma. And I urge Western Countries to wake up and pay attention to Pakistani Christians.

Attack on Christian TV Channel in Pakistan: Hector Aleem

12249924_10153335323934576_5016027339418794286_n

 

Pakistan has proved itself to be the most terrorist country again. This time the target was a Christian tv channel called “Gawahi TV” in Karachi city. Muslim extremists burnt the office of channel, they also burnt Holy Bible, Cross and other Christian books. The burning and destruction of Holy Books and Worship places of religious minorities is a common practice in Pakistan. This Christian channel has been receiving threats, the channel management asked for police protection but who can protect you when your country is against you?. These days Pakistan is criticizing India for discrimination against religious minorities but whats happening to Christians inside Pakistan is worse than any other country. There has been no news on Pakistani tv channels and newspapers on this incident because Pakistani print and electronic media is biased and extremist. There has been no condemnation by Pakistani politicians and government officials, because they are all terrorists. Pakistan is the epicenter of terrorism. I request you all to condemn this horrific act by Pakistan and please pray for this Christian channel.

It is a Crime to be a Christian in Pakistan: Hector Aleem

In Pakistan being Christian is a crime. If they raise voice for their rights or someone speak in their favor, their corpses will be on the road. I ask Prime Minister of Pakistan Mr. Nawaz Sharif, what will you say about Minorities in United Nations General Assembly? Are minorities living according to the charter of UN in Pakistan? That is why whoever gets a chance is fleeing from Pakistan especially Christians.

Christianity will live on in Iraq: Column

Despite centuries of persecution, violence rarely has the last word.

Weeks before its first horrendous beheading of an American journalist, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria gave Christians in Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, a stark one week choice: Convert or face execution. Christian houses were marked with a black “N” — for Nazarene, a reference to Jesus.

Those who fled were, as a refugee named Raad Ghanem put it, “stripped of everything. Money, wallets, jewelry, ID, passports, watches, everything.” For the first time in 16 centuries, there are no Catholic masses in Mosul on worship day.

This persecution has reached well beyond Mosul. As recently as 2003, roughly 1.4 million Christians lived in Iraq. After more than 60 church bombings and ISIL’s recent campaign to exterminate religious minorities, the numbers have dwindled. Syrian Christians are under equally serious assault, as are Coptic Christians in Egypt.

But history offers a glimmer of hope in the midst of this darkness. It is not just that refugees from persecution often find a home in new countries where their beliefs can flourish, as Catholics and Jews did in 19th century America, and Protestants did before that. The more profound truth is that violence rarely has the final word, even in the country from which a religious minority has been excluded.

The Roman Empire sought to snuff out Christianity on several occasions, most famously during the reign of Nero.

Even when they were not actively persecuted, Christians often were forbidden from owning property and subjected to social stigma. Yet Christianity survived and eventually thrived. Ironically, Christianity’s own commitment to human rights — such as the dignity of women — was a key feature of its success.

According to sociologist Rodney Stark, Roman Emperor Valentinian was so worried about Christianity’s attractiveness to women that he issued an order in A.D. 370forbidding Christian missionaries from making visits to the houses of pagan women.

In the modern era, China clamped down on Christians during the infamous Cultural Revolution. The Chinese leadership was ruthlessly efficient, and for years few known Christians could be found in China. Yet as soon as cracks opened in the oppression, Christianity began to spread. Two of the 21 best known leaders of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests are now ordained priests, and the number of Chinese Christians is now thought to be roughly 60 million.

Beliefs that no longer seem to make sense of the world may fade. This is why we don’t worship Baal, as the ancient Phoenicians did, or offer libation to Greek gods and goddesses. But any religion or system of thought that speaks to our deepest needs cannot be kept at bay forever, no matter how virulent the oppression. It will always spring back as soon as it is given an opening.

Christians are not perfect. Christians have sometimes been responsible for repression themselves, as in the Crusades and the Inquisition in the Middle Ages. But so long as Christianity continues to enable men and women to navigate the complexity of their lives, it will withstand even the most awful oppression.

The resilience of Christian beliefs obviously should not be an excuse for complacency as ISIL continues its rampage. Millions of Iraqis and Syrians live in constant fear. ISIL’s disdain for human rights cries out for a response. The U.S. and other countries need to do whatever they can to help restore order in this time of chaos.

But we can take comfort knowing that repression in Mosul and elsewhere will not be the end of the story. Although something precious is lost if an ancient tradition is severed, even temporarily, Christianity will one day return to Iraq. It always does.
