The first shocked of 2016 that some angry people came in church after service and they burn the church building, furniture and Holy Bibles and Holy songs books.
It happened on yesterday 7, January 2016 in Bhatta villiage raiwind road Lahore.
A really sad state that religious fanatics burnt the Apostolic Church in #Pakistan's second largest city Lahore. It's a big challenge for the Government of Pakistan and especially for the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who wants to promote a "Liberal and Democratic Pakistan", but until the justice's been denied by giving the cover to the extremists, the dream will remain the dream. We strongly demand the Pakistani authorities to arrest and punish the responsible of this heinous crime and rebuild the burnt Church as soon as possible.
