Islamic Tolerance Alert: "Muslims attack Christian community in Punjab,"
from AsiaNews <http://www.asianews.it/index.php?l=en&art=14650&size=A> ,
March 5 (thanks to C. Cantoni):
Peshawar (AsiaNews/Agencies) - One woman has died and 28 people have
been injured in an attack on the Presbyterian Christian community in the
village of Songo, in the district of Gujranwala, province of Punjab. The
attack took place on the evening of March 2: at 8 p.m., a group of
Muslim inhabitants opened fire on the faithful who had gathered in the
church for prayer. The woman, named Shakeela, died on the spot, while
other members of the faithful suffered injuries of various kinds while
they were seeking to flee from the bullets or to protect the pastor. The
attackers broke the windows of the church, destroyed the Bibles and the
other prayer books, and removed the cross from the roof of the building.
The victims of the attacks say that this was a premeditated action, and
recount that in the previous weeks they had received a number of threats
from the attackers. The authors of the attack have been identified, and
a report against them has been filed at the local police station. The
Pakistan Christian Post says that for now, the security forces have
turned down the request for investigations on the attackers. For this
reason, the burial of the woman's body has been delayed, to permit an
autopsy in evidence of the attack.
Tiny Minority of Extremists Alert:
The attack in Songo is added to a long list of violent events that are
now being seen more or less everywhere in Punjab and in the North-West
Frontier Province (NWFP). The attacks are carried out by the Taliban,
but also by ordinary people, and they are not coming to an end in the
Swat Valley, where a fragile ceasefire has been attained by the
government, thanks to the concession of introducing sharia in that
district and in the district of Malakand.
During the night of March 5, the Taliban blew up 16 CD and DVD stores in
Takhtbhai, in the district of Mardan northeast of Peshawar, the capital
of the NWFP. It is one of the many places in the province that in recent
months have come under the grip of the Taliban. In February, it was the
theater of attacks against girls' schools, carried out by Islamic
fundamentalists, and in spite of the fact that the agreement between the
Taliban and the government provides for the reopening of schools to
girls, many are afraid of fresh violence....
