Islamabad October 29, 2001

Condemning the attack on a church in Bahawalpur the Convener of World Minorities Alliance, former federal minister and Christian leader J.Salik described it as a dastardly attempt to create a wedge between the Muslim

In a press statement J.Salik said the need of the hour was to hold out a credible guarantee that life, property and honor and the rights to creed of the minority communities would be fully safeguarded in their respective countries. The blanket of security should extend not only to places of worship but also respect needs to be shown to the secret events and holy festivals.

J.Salik appealed to Pope John Paul II of Rome and Bishop of Canterbury to raise their voice for upholding the sanctity of the holy month of Ramzan vis a vis US-led coalition air strikes on Afghanistan. This step would promote the sense of security among Muslim minorities in the western Christians and other countries.

The World Minorities Alliance have had vehemently protested over desecration of holy places of minorities whether be it Barbie Mosque and Sikh Golden Temple in India are any other holy places of minority community anywhere in the world.

J.Salik claimed that Christian community of Pakistan was totally loyal to this country and recalled that there was no single incident in the entire history of Pakistan, which might reflect upon patriotism of Christians. J.Salik demands to all countries to introduce a subject on genuine and peaceful relationship between majority and minority communities in their educational institutions.
