Report: Pakistani Christians targeted: conversion to Islam or suicide attacks

August 13, 2007

From Asia News:

Christian families in Peshawar are living in great fear after receiving anonymous letters threatening suicide attacks if they did not convert to Islam. The episode was reported by Pervez Masih – a minority Member of National Assembly (MNA) – who denounced the event August 10th last, during the assembly session of the Pakistan Parliament.

Giving details, he said the hand-written letter entitled “knock of the death”, was full of slogans in favour of Islam and a Jihad and against non-Muslims and America. The MNA then read out the contents of the letter for the Assembly, “All of you are being invited to quit Christianity and become Muslim to save a place in the heaven. Otherwise, by the next Friday (August 10) your colony will be destroyed and you will be responsible for the loss of life and property. Be ready as it is not only a mere threat. Our suicide bombers will kill you. Consider it a final call”.
