Pakistani Christians face relentless inequality and abuse: Youhanabad church reverend

15-year-old Meerab Afzal

The wounds of the horrific suicide blasts in two churches of Youhanabad are still fresh. Christ Church Reverend Irshad Ashknaz says Christians in Pakistan are a constant target of hate and inequality.

“We deal with discrimination on a daily basis,” Ashknaz said.

Ashknaz said that Christians in Pakistan are discriminated on the basis of their religion and hence are denied jobs all over the country.

“Hate is spread against us. When people are faced with relentless inequality and abuse, they finally let their emotions go. That is probably what took over the mob on the day of the attacks,” he said…

The bombings took place in March of this year.
