Read PAKISTAN – Christians Attacked over Business Success, by Center for Legal Aid and Assistance and Settlement, at Release International.
"A Christian man was attacked with an axe and another was beaten by locals apparently jealous of their business success.
"Nadeem Masih, 24, was attacked last week at his home in Gloria Colony, a mainly Christian settlement in Sheikhupura, Punjab province. Five heavily armed local men set upon him, demanding the closure of his brother Waseem's catering business. 'Christians are only cleaners and poor,' they said. When his mother tried to help Nadeem, who was badly injured, she was bitten. Police did nothing when the family sought legal action."
