Karachi: April 22, 2009. (PCP) The Talibanization of Karachi city begins with attack of armed Taliban on a Christian colony.

The attack was well organized and heavy firearms were used by hundreds of Taliban to threaten unarmed Christian elders, women and children. The Taliban chalked slogans against Christianity and to accept Islam on Church walls in Taseer Town in night of April 19, 2009 which horrified Christian residents. On April 21, 2009, the local Christians took out a peaceful procession in vicinity of Taseer Town to attract attention of local administration for protection of residents but no action was taken nor police guard were provided for protection of Church. On night of April21, 2009, more than one hundred masked Taliban intruded in Taseer Colony and attacked Christians with heavy machine guns. The feared Christian locked them in their homes but they pulled elders out on gunpoint’s and dragged women from hairs in streets. They loudly said “ You infidels have to convert to Islam or die. Why you cleaned our warnings chalked on walls of Church and home doors? How you dare to take out procession against Taliban?
