Lahore: August 4, 2006. The curse of touchable and hate toward Christians in Pakistan can be viewed by this incident: Indian Muslim demanded Pakistan and division of Indian sub-continent on issue of hate toward Muslims by Hindu majority. The incident

Here is one reported incident of hate among millions un-reported: A Christian stone mason in Pakistan was violently beaten just outside the city of Lahore after drinking from a public water glass. On Tuesday, June 6, Nasir Ashraf was working on a school construction site when he got thirsty, drew water and drank from a glass chained to a public water tank next to a mosque. While returning to the construction site, a Muslim man asked, "Why did you drink water from this glass since you are a Christian?" He accused the mason of polluting the glass and proceeded to destroy it. The Muslim man then summoned a crowd by shouting, "This Christian polluted our glass," and encouraging them to beat him up. The crowd began beating Nasir, eventually pushing him off a ledge. The fall dislocated his shoulder, broke his collarbone in two places and knocked him unconscious. For our readers information, we shall bring one reported and discussed issue of such hate when one vendor in Kasur city in Punjab province demanded and received cost of utensils from Christian Member of National assembly of Pakistan on eating in same plates used by Muslims. The Christians can not eat and drink in plates and glasses in any restaurant in Pakistan. The cups and plates are kept separate in Armed Forces of Pakistan for Christian soldiers in mess rooms even.
