Christians Burned Alive
Bishop Joseph Coutts of Faisalabad, Pakistan has spoken of his people’s anger and grief after eight people including two children were burned alive in one of the bloodiest attacks against Christians in the country’s history. The attacks came two days after a related incident in the nearby village of Korian where gangs set fire to more than 70 Christian homes and two small churches. Speaking from Pakistan the bishop said: “There is a lot of anger among the people about what has happened. Emotions are running extremely high. People could respond in any way. This is undoubtedly one of the worst attacks we have faced.”
The attacks were sparked by Muslim outrage at reports that children had cut up pages from an old school book to use as wedding confetti. Little did they realize that the pages contained verses from the Qu‘ran.
