20 Aug 2009
Scarborough: August 19, 2009. (PCP) Despite the Scorching heat of Sunday noon, temperatures rising to 32c the determined friends of Christian Minority of Pakistan held an awareness rally on August 16, 2009
to protest the Acts of Evil by the hands of Muslim Extremists in Scarborough, Canada at the doorsteps of ST. Barnabas Church which holds 3 services each Saturday and Sunday which very much get attended by 500 to 700 worshipers each service.
A visitors like an area MP Mr. Derek Lee spoke with many of the determined protesters for their will to face the tough weather. Many worshipers stopped on the way in to encourage and appreciate the work of rally enthusiasts.
The group was fortunate to have committed members like the elder and young Randawas who stood tall to send the message to the conquering SUN and Coward Extremists and Terrorists that we will not rest until the deserved rights of members of the Christian Minority are returned and respected.
The brave company of Mr. Asher Gill, Mr. Jamil George and Pervez Sottara really set the mood of the protesters to stand tall and not to give in to the Acts of Evil in suppressing the spirits of those soles who suffered tragic losses. We will not forget the Martyrs of Gojra said the young Patres.
Mr. Raymond Durrani, a leader of rally said “We are so blessed by the participation of Mr. Zia Gill and his family and extended family. It is people like them who make others to follow their footsteps. Mr. Bose, a tireless soldier of the big fellow never gives up regardless of the distance and surfing the internet to obtain news about what happened in Gojra. We are indebted to the efforts of Shan, Sara and her sister – with determination as Solid as Stainless Steel to put their little hands at holding up the Banners and flash their posters to the cars on the road and people walking by them”
From here on protestors will only move forward with many such awareness rallies sending the message of hope and will to crush the false propaganda of the Evil Doers. We ask for the strength of those who yet have to join hands with us in achieving the ultimate goal of security for our brothers and sisters in Pakistan.
