Five christian worshipers Killed by Bomb at Islamabad Church. Christian Leaders condemn terrorist attack and demand arrest of culprits.


ISLAMABAD, Mar 17: Five people were killed when several grenades exploded during a Sunday service at a Protestant church in the diplomatic enclave of Islamabad, police and witnesses said. Calling it a "terrorist attack," Islamabad police chief Nasir

Durrani said one or two men tossed the grenades into the main place of worship for Protestants in Islamabad's expatriate community Police cordoned off the area but broken glass and splintered wood could be seen on the front steps. It was not immediately clear why the church was targeted but many hard-line Islamic groups oppose President Pervez Musharraf's support for the U.S.-led war on terror. Meanwhile Rt. Rev. Dr. Major (Retired) Timotheus Nasir, Presbyterian Bishop of Pakistan, said "Today's attacks on a Protestant Church in Islamabad has angered the Christian Community in Pakistan. Christians are a peaceful community in a country over crowded with "Hard line Muslims" who have burnt churches in past killed pastors and common Christian. In 1997 a whole Christian village (Shanti Nagar was attacked by Muslims and burned) Catholic Bishop John Joseph was murdered on 6th of May 1998, In Southern Punjab 18 Christian worshipers were slaughtered in a church in Bahawalpure and in less than six months today atlease 5 Christians are killed and 40 injured when the last report came in at 1300 hours local time. No culprit has ever been caught or punished. The Christian don't care who these "killers" are if they are Indian Terrorists then why they could not be caught and if they are Pakistani Hard Line Muslims why they have been given a free hand as most of the Christians see it. Unfortunately on every occasions when Christian were either murdered or their churches and villages were burnt, the Christian leadership (Bishops both Protestants and Catholics) told the Christian community, "Let us pray" of they forgave the killer at their own. The Christian community has been slapped on both checks more than twice. It is time to "Hit Back". Jesus never said that let the other person slap you for the "third time". Some Christian have demanded revenge. It is feared that if some high headed and die heart type Christians decide to take the matter into their own hand, things may get worse. It is hoped that this time the government will get hold of the enemies of Christians and hang them publicly otherwise the Christian do have "Ropes too".
