Karachi. July 30. Another Property of the Karachi Diocese, CoP namely St. John’s Church, Plot no. 36, Block – 38, Tarachand Road, Keamari, Karachi was sold by Rev. Sadiq Daniel group.
It is well-known that during these times of disputes in the Church of Pakistan the Diocese of Karachi has come apart into two factions. One faction recognizes Bishop Ijaz Inayat as a legal and constitutional Bishop of Karachi Diocese and other faction recognize Sadiq Daniel as their Bishop. In the Diocese of Karachi two managing bodies are working and both claim to be legal and constitutional. At present St. John’s Church which is a preaching point of St. George’s Church Keamari Parish is under the control and management of Rev. Sadiq Daniel and Co.
Since last few days this Church is occupied by some unknown non Christians. The Church has been dishonored and desecrated and present occupants have broken down the Alter and the sacred Cross. They have also desecrated our Religious books and thrown them out of the said Church. The occupiers are building/constructing shops and commercial enterprises in place of the Church.
