The protestors gathered at Cathedral and marched to DCO offices demanding arrests of those involved in sale and removal of locks put by Muslims. The land adjacent to Cathedral School is estimated to 65 Crores which is being sold by one Bishop and one local Christian politician to Muslim builders. The Cathedral School is situated in Christian Town which turned to be fortune reality land after commissioning of Air Port. The wave anger spread among Christians of Sialkot on September 8, 2009, when Muslims broke locks of Christian property and put their locks.
