FIRING on St. Francis Xavier Church, Hyderabad Pakistan

Sunday, September 16, 2012

Sunny Gill Reporting:
Today on the 16th of September, the Hyderabad Catholic Diocese and Protestant denominations had arranged a protest against the anti-Islamic film, which allegedly began the intense rioting in the Middle East in this past week. While returning from the protest a van in which sisters and Nuns were sitting was openly fired on by unknown assailants. The driver of the van, one Imran Masih was injured in this assault. During this same time more unidentified assailants also openly shot at St. Francis Xavier Church --one man reported as being named "Mangi" has lost his life in this deadly act of violence.


I would personally like to send a prayer request out for the suffering church in Pakistan. They extended their hand out to their fellow Muslim brothers in solidarity against an insult to their faith --and in turn were brutally targeted for their own faith. This is unacceptable, and I pray that the families of these victims find solace in the Lord, and that He comforts and guides them and this entire community as they grieve this unimaginable loss. 

I also ask you to pray for the people of Essa Nagri, on September 12th at approximately 4:20am more terrorist violence flooded the streets of this Christian colony --during the firing one of our own, Mr. Yousaf Masih the son of Inayat Masih was shot and killed.
