Christians in a strongly Islamic environment

Around 300 Muslim students, armed with iron bars and sticks, ransacked Panel High School in Bannu, north-west Pakistan, on 23 January, having jumped over the perimeter walls and forced open the gates. The Muslims were protesting against a cartoon of Muhammad published in the French magazine Charlie Hebdo, and they selected this school because it is a Christian school. “Whenever incidents occur in Western countries, they faithful Pakistanis are attacked. Christians, who are already living in constant fear for their lives, become even more vulnerable,” commented a Pakistani Christian. Ask the Lord will wonderfully protect His faithful people in Pakistan (2Kings 6:15-17), especially in the north-west, where they are very few in number and living in a strongly Islamic environment.
