LAHORE:


Several lawyers belonging to the Christian community said on Tuesday that they would sacrifice the last drop of their blood for the integrity of Pakistan.


They were addressing a press conference to condemn an anti-Islam movie at the LDA Plaza.

They also denounced the burning of a church in Mardan on the Ishq-i-Rasool Day. They said they supported Muslims against the anti-Islam movie and would lay down their lives for the integrity of Pakistan.

Christian Lawyers Forum President Robinson said it was regrettable that some people had set fire to the public property and damaged shops.

He said the Christian community in Pakistan would not recognise Terry Jones as a pastor.

Lahore Bar Association President Zulfiqar Ali said the minorities enjoyed equal rights in Islam. He said Christians living in Pakistan were equal citizens and it was the Muslims’ responsibility to protect them.

Pastors Irshad John and Shahid Miraj and Lahore Bar Association General Secretary Asad Zaidi also spoke on the occasion.

We can understand the pain and fear of living in country ruled by law of the jungle and where marauding barbarians rule the streets! The country has been stripped of the ideals of founding fathers and heading for disintegration on ethnic and sectarian lines. In these dangerous times one has to go extra mile and demonstrate "patriotism and belongingness” all the time and everywhere! Forget about the minorities, Pakistan is no longer a place to live safely and raise family even for a god fearing and civilized Muslims!! This is very sad.
