‘Will acquit you if you embrace Islam’, says Lahore public prosecutor to 42 Christians accused of lynching Muslim terrorists who killed 14

NEW DELHI: 42 Christians in Lahore, who are accused of murder, were told by a public prosecutor he “can guarantee their acquittal” if they renounce Christianity and convert to Islam, reported The Express Tribune, a Pakistani newspaper, today.

The 42 people, belonging to Pakistan’s minority Christian community, have been charged with lynching two men after March 2015’s suicide blasts that targeted Sunday Mass in two churches in Youhanabad in Lahore. Many in Youhanabad’s mostly Christian community believed the two men were involved in the planning of the bombings.
