Hmmmm. Who could these “unidentified people” be? Methodists on an anti-Presbyterian crusade? Militant vegetarians? Renegade Buddhists? It’s a mystery!
“Pakistani Presbyterian Pastor attacked at gunpoint,” by Dan Wooding and Sheraz Khurram Khan for ASSIST News Service, July 1 :
KARACHI, PAKISTAN (ANS) — The Rev. Eric Sarwar, a minister of the Presbyterian Church of Pakistan and director of the Tehillim School of Church Music and Worship, was attacked in Karachi on Tuesday, June 30, 2009, at 8:00 pm Pakistan time, ANS has learned.
According to an email sent to ANS by the Presbyterian Church in Pakistan some unidentified people kidnapped the pastor at gunpoint.
“The pastor managed to escape and is being treated for his injuries at a hospital in Karachi,” said the message. “Rev. Eric is involved with mission in Pakistan through music and the arts. Kindly pray for his safety and health as his family is still in danger.”
His family is still in danger? That suggests that the Presbyterian Church in Pakistan knows who is behind this. And in a broader sense, so do I.
