Just another day in the Islamic world.
(ONN) — Christians in Pakistan recently fled when a Muslim mob attacked a seminary and accused believers of desecrating the Quran.
Roughly 4,000 Muslims recently attacked a Presbyterian seminary in Gujranwala and compelled 3,000 believers to flee the area. Pastor Eric Issac, who oversees a local Presbyterian church, was also arrested and falsely accused of burning the Quran.
Jonathan Racho, regional manager for Africa with International Christian Concern (ICC), says the attack may have been trigged by the Pakistani police’s decision to release two Christians accused of insulting the Quran.
“This is not the first time that Christians have been persecuted in the area. On April 15, the Muslim radicals in the area accused Mushtaq Gill and his son Farrukh Gill of desecrating the Quran, and they got them arrested,” Racho reports.
