After The Suicide Bombings

After the suicide bombings against churches in Youhanabad, Lahore, Pakistan (see before), many local Christians protested on the streets. Church leaders from all over the city gathered in Youhanabad to show their solidarity and urge Christians to respond peacefully. Responsibility for attacks was claimed by Islamist gruop Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, which has split off from Taliban and pledged allegiance to Islamic State (IS). They also announced, “We promise that until an Islamic system is put into place in Pakistan, such attack will continue.” Pray for Pakistan’s Christians, who will now be feeling very insecure in their homeland and wondering if they will forced out by extreme violence and threats in a repeat of IS is doing in Iraq.
