    Dear all, the fate of minority communities in the muslim countries are very pathetic. The muslims are intolerable towards other religions. They can't tolerate even the existence of other religions in their countries. On the contrary the christians are going enmasse to other religions. Especially the catholics are going to either other sects or converted to islam. This is mostly because of the failure on the part of the authorities who are responsible for policy making in the catholic church. Let us pray that the suffering christians in the muslim countries, especially in pakistan may be consoled by God. Let us also give our support and solidarity to the suffering christians. Christianity today needs to be waken up. The sects are to be unrecognized, because they act unwisely and imprudedntly and malign the name of christianity. The act of a self proclaimed preacher and pastor against other religions instigate the people and give them the chance to torture the christians. Therefore the church authorities must draw a policy and declare that the independent churches are no more in line with the teaching of Christ and whoever have contact with them will be excommunicated. This seems to be a strong action but to save the catholic church we have to take some strong action. God bless you.

    I cry to God why this terrific pain is allowed to be given to those who believe in you ! Has the powerful world failed to give help to these hapless minorities and that too the helpless girls ? Do the mighty America and Europe who are proponents of "Freedom of conscience, and religion " listen ? Come out and thios is the time to help and also to teach these fundamentalists what is tolerance and freedom.

    This is an Islamic country and these practices are consistent with Islamic law that promotes and accepts them. The govt of Pakistan will do little to nothing to prevent these practices from happening and even encourages them.This is just a continuation of a war against our Christain brothers and sisters who have no defense against them. Our current govt, who supposeldy advocates and requires religious tolerance and acceptance for us, will say nothing and do nothing. Our Christain brothers and sisters have only us and our prayers to rely upon. We must pray fervently for their protection and safety and eliverance from this evil.
