100 Christian homes burned by mob in Lahore

fire bb

Almost 100 houses were burned in a mob attack on a Christian community at the Badami Bagh area in Lahore.
The attack was supposedly retaliation against a member of the community for having made blasphemous remarks.
During the attack, members of the police including the SHO of the area was also injured when the mob threw stones at them.
The mob comprising of almost 3000 members attacked the Joseph colony on Noor road. The attack was led by Shafiq Ahmed against the supposed blasphemer Savan.
Several houses besides that of Savan were attacked and almost 150 Christian families were forced to flee the area.
Savan is currently under arrest and has been moved to an undisclosed location.

    If Shafiq Ahmed and those who followed him are no better than the Taliban or others who could be called terrorists..acts like this are anti Islamic..it goes against everything Islam stands for and against everything what it means to be a Muslim…Our beloved prophet was ridiculed, had trash thrown on him, got beaten, called names, chased and hunted..but he never as much had a thought of revenge or would commit a crime against someone who called him a bad name or treated him badly..Behavior like this is a great dishonor and shameful act to our beloved prophet..

    The government should allow the minorities like Christians,Hindus,Ahamadiyas,Parsis,Shias and others to emigrate with dignity and not subject them to such humiliation and danger.Once the minorities are gone then then these extremists can live happily.One thing is certain.the law will not be eliminated.

    THIS IS THE PERFECT THING THAT MR SHAFIQUE AHMED AND HIS FOLLOWERS ARE DOING
    BECAUSE THE CHRISTIANS ARE GUILTY
    THE SUPPORTED PAKISTAN AND STARTED LIVING IN PAKISTAN AND BELIEVED THAT THIS IS A PLACE OF PEACE
    THIS IS THE BEST REWARD THAT THEY CAN GET
    THIS IS NOT THE FIRST TIME THAT THEY HAVE BEEN TREATED LIKE THIS
    THEY HAVE BEEN TREATED LIKE THIS SINCE PAKISTAN IS MADE
    THANKS TO ALL THE MUSLIMS FOR SPREADING THE MESSAGE OF PEACE IN PAKISTAN AND ALL OVER THE WORLD
    LIKE WE SAW IN CASE OF THE SMALL GIRL FROM RAWALPINDI WHO WAS CLAIMED TO BE A BLASPHEMOUS AND AFTER WARDS IT CAME TO KNOWLEDGE THAT SHE HASNT BURN THE PAGES OF QURAN BUT INFACT IT WAS THE IMAAM OF THE MOSQUE WHO ADDED THE BURNT PAGES TO THE ASH TO PROOVE THAT THE SMALL GIRL WAS ACCUSED
    SO I STILL BELIEVE THAT ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE
    AND HOPE YOU ALSO BELIEVE THAT THERE IS NO OTHER RELIGION PEACEFUL THAT ISLAM ON THIS EARTH

    • MAR RODRIGUEZ said:

      si, claro se ve y se nota que es muy pacifico el Islam, si vas en contra de lo que creen que es la verdad (su verdad) se creen con el derecho de matar a quienes no comulguen con ellos ¿dónde está la paz? ¿dónde la justicia? ¿dónde el derecho? ¿dónde su dios? ante los ojos de todo el mundo el abuso, el fanatismo, la prepotencia no son parte de un fin espiritual. Dios el ALTÍSIMO es por sobre todas las cosas, no así el hombre, para muestra un botón que decepcionante si Dios fuera así.

    is pakistan has become like an inferno(hell)?these blood thirsty terrorists so called muslims must be hanged publically.I m muslim nd my heart is burning because of this worst type of incident aginst humanity.this is not islam these r not the teachings of prophet. shafiq and his stone age minded companions are actually blasphemous.
    i condole my christian brothers.they are the victims of evil customes of cruel system.islam urges to protect them.

  12. EMMANUEL said:

    The LORD JESUS said i"f they hated me they will hate you also", if they persecuted me they will persecute you also, All I can say is for anyone that has an ear JESUS LOVES YOU he wants to save you if you dont know HIM, HE is the one and only way, truth and LIFE……………For those that attacked the christians I pray for God's revelation to be released unto them so that their eyes are open and they may know Him. But for Christians remember what JESUS said when crucified "FATHER PLEASE FORGIVE THEM, FOR THEY DO NOT KNOW WHAT THEY ARE DOING"

    • Bhatti Muhammad said:

      I am Muslim. I believe on th preaching of Jesus on humanity. But the persons involved in this incident are not ignorent of what they are doing and why they are doing. These are political motivated people and creating misdeed among the Pakistanis.

    • Ron Wagner said:

      Thanks to you and all those who sympathize with my Christian brethren. It is so good to see. Muslims have freedom in the West. Is it unfair for Christians to have freedom in preponderantly Muslim nations? God knows what is in all hearts, despite their group. He will judge accordingly. " By their fruits shall ye judge them".

    • Abid Ghauri said:

      Dear Emmanuel,
      As per Quran you are our most closer People of book to muslims. However what u are referring from bible as those "who hate" jesus and will hate you, are not us muslims… they are the ones who executed him as per your book … try to understand the big game behind the incident … try to see the invisible agenda of them who are making sunni kill shia today and someone kill sunni… understand please, they just want CHAOS and INSTABILITY In our country …. these arent muslims who did it, no matter even if they call themselves they are … and surely they do not know what they are doing and who is making them do this …. we are equally sad for this act of brutality and injustice…. may we all live happily and peacefully AMEEN

    The only time mohamid was ridiculed was by his own as they knew him to be filled with lies….at least till he rounded up fellows to invade with..convert or be killed, those who lived learned of the random brutality, slave status. This does not surprise me in the least but I do hate the brutality of this satanic madman’s cult that has gone on to too long. This is what happens when people finally snap when following crazy. Mohamid

    I wonder now who can say that Islam is a religion of peace and forgiveness as they always claim…every day there is news of killings by Muslims whether in Africa, Asia and middle East….wonder when they will be tolerate and civilised to other faith …?

    • alishba said:

      well everyone who kills and has killed humanity in the name of religion in the present or in the past has done the cruelty and it doesnt have something to see with the religion or the teachings of the religion…..this is the problem with the fanatics… who sometime raise their heads in one religion and other times the other… the issue is to find them and kill them….. so they dont infect the beautiful world with their negativity…. and this can be done only by fighting this evil togethher instead of blaming eachother…and eachother´s religions…. coz all religions´teachings give the message of Peace….

  16. S.R.H. Hashmi said:

    What the mob did can not be justified on any count and they deserve exemplary punishment, and the victims provided protection and adequate compensation.

    However, you should not discredit all Muslim for the sake of some. Record of Muslims is still far better than that of some other religions. These were Christians who killed six million Jews and dropped nuclear bombs on civilians. Even in the modern day, they invaded Iraq and caused the death of nearly a million innocent million. And our prophet had a reputation for being truthful, so don’t tell lies.

Muslims in Pakisan needs to learn what their religion truly teach them.

  31. Bob said:

    Quran (8:39) – "And fight with them until there is no more fitna (disorder, unbelief) and religion should be only for Allah" Some translations interpret "fitna" as "persecution", but the traditional understanding of this word is not supported by the historical context The Meccans were simply refusing Muhammad access to their city during Haj. Other Muslims were allowed to travel there – just not as an armed group, since Muhammad had declared war on Mecca prior to his eviction. The Meccans were also acting in defense of their religion, since it was Muhammad's intention to destroy their idols and establish Islam by force (which he later did). Hence the critical part of this verse is to fight until "religion is only for Allah", meaning that the true justification of violence was the unbelief of the opposition. According to the Sira (Ibn Ishaq/Hisham 324) Muhammad further explains that "Allah must have no rivals."
    Islams history was to use violence to spread, why are we surprised when that pattern continues?

    Aaha.. here comes my my Allah ke Bande again…..

    Whenever we guys feel short of various articles of daily use, we always find a culprit of blasphemy easily. And by grace of our Allah’, we always find all the articles of our daily use in Kafir’s homes easily. See how easily we looted 150 Kafir homes and our great police(Allah’s Army) registered a case of blasphemy against Kafir, so that no-one could ever complain if we have taken some articles from Kafir’s homes. These are the tactics our PBUH taught us 1400 years ago. But, I don’t understand one thing how these Kafirs become prosporous again, while we always remain like beggars and looters as we were 1400 years ago. Please let me know anything is written about it in holy book or hadiith.

      You have answered your own question…if you think that all the answers are in a book written 1400 years ago that explains why you have not progressed in 14 centuries while other have…your problem is obvious and yet you refuse the solution…wake up..Islam is not a religion of peace..

    There is only violence, blood, and terror in islam. There is no peace in islam. Islam has gone crazy all over the world. Islam is against the welfare of the Human Race. More shame today on islam. Islam is worse than nazism. Nazis were mad by trying to control the world so is Islam mad by trying to control the world. These are Pakistani Islamic Terrorists. If there is "Rule of Law" in Pakistan, then these islamic terrorist mobs all belong in jail for committing mahem in the name of mohamed. They Shame Mohamed and Shame the Human race.

    Quran (3:151) – "Soon shall We cast terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers, for that they joined companions with Allah, for which He had sent no authority". This speaks directly of polytheists, yet it also includes Christians, since they believe in the Trinity (ie. what Muhammad incorrectly believed to be 'joining companions to Allah').

It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails…….let pak be united with this kinda love……my love to you all

And what the new government of Nawaz Sharif is doing to protect minorities? NOTHING, Shame on a government where its minorities are slatered and their houses are burned….Zardari did nothing to protect minorities and Sharif' is showing now signs of taking any action either. May Allah protect Pakistyan and its minorities, particulalrly, Christian minority in Pakistan.
