PC Exclusive - March 19th, 2012 - Interviewed by Michael Coren on The Arena (Sun News Network)

Hi everyone!

So recently I received an amazing opportunity to go on the Michael Coren show for a short interview about my thoughts as a Christian from Pakistan, on the persecution that my community faces there.

I met Mr. Coren by chance at a conference that we both attended earlier in the month and he invited me on his show; such a blessing!

Off the bat I was super nervous as I'd never been interviewed before, it's much easier to write your thoughts as I do here and be able to read them over and over until I'm quite satisfied; but when it's live it's a whole 'nother story!

Thank God it went well, and I'm happy for this chance and for the many more I hope will follow for myself and others in my community to speak out and share their thoughts to a larger audience!

Also there are two things I'd like to clear up:
1. CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency) gives 80% of it's aid to only 20 countries in the world, one of them being Pakistan; Pakistan according to their source gets about 80MILLION DOLLARS a year for development projects - all of these projects are directed on the whole to the majority population (including the 33 operational projects, and 43 to be terminated this year that I mentioned in the interview.

2. Shahbaz Taseer was kidnapped by the Pakistani Taliban - they have admitted this kidnapping and I mistakenly said Al Quaeda.

Thank you Jesus! and Thanks to everyone who continues to work for the freedom of our persecuted brothers and sisters in Pakistan! God bless

- Serena
