Islamic Tolerance Alert from our friend and ally: “Muslim Land-Grabbers Attack Christians: One believer missing, three severely injured; police file charges against victims,” from Compass Direct:
August 18 (Compass Direct News) — In an attempted land-grab, Muslim attackers have terrorized a predominantly Christian village in Pakistan’s Punjab province over the past two weeks and demolished its church.
Three Christian men were hospitalized with serious hatchet wounds from an initial August 7 attack on Mominpura Thaiki village near Sharaqpur, 20 miles southwest of Lahore. The Muslim aggressors came from a neighboring village.
Another critically injured Christian, Bashir Masih, was abducted and remains missing since a second assault on the village on Saturday (August 12), when he tried to stop armed attackers from stealing his cattle.
Yaqoob Maher, a Muslim ex-convict and landowner from a neighboring village, has been accused under Pakistan’s anti-terrorist laws of masterminding and leading the two attacks.
After a six-year campaign to force the Christian villagers off their lands, Maher’s latest assaults left the village church in ruins. The marauders exploded several hand grenades inside the church, stole everything of value and desecrated Bibles and hymnbooks. They also destroyed two houses adjacent to the church, one by fire.
A number of Christian women were beaten and their clothes ripped and partially torn off, an especially painful public disgrace in Pakistani culture.
