Lahore: Vandals set a church on fire over trivial dispute; building, furniture and Holy Bibles all reduced to ashes
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.
Welcome to the Orthodox Church of Pakistan.

We believe, as the Church has always taught, that the correct conduct of true worship must be known, practiced and passed on to the next generation of the Faithful. We provide an expression of Orthodox life and witness which is thoroughly consistent with Orthodox Apostolic Tradition.
