They shouldn’t hold their breath. “Mardan Christians unhappy with security; demand reconstruction of burnt church,” by Zahir Shah Sherazi for Dawn, September 22 (thanks to Zulu):
MARDAN: The Christian community of Mardan, on Saturday, demanded reconstruction of the Paul Lutheran Church which was burnt down by angry mob during the anti-Islam film demonstrations in the cantonment area on Friday.
The Christian community staged a demonstration near the burnt church and said that the police had failed to protect their worship place when angry protestors set the church on fire along with two Pastor houses and the adjacent head-teacher’s house.
Vice president of the church Andaryat, speaking to reporters in Mardan, on Saturday said that the Christian community equally condemn the sacrilegious film and demand action against the pastor and the filmmaker.
A threatened dhimmi community does what it has to do to survive.
“Due to personal acts of a few fanatics the Christian community and its worship places in Pakistan are becoming unsafe, which is regrettable.”
He remarked that the church and the Christian school had been looted and the newly-installed computers had been stolen by the miscreants while the looters also take away other stuff from the church
The protestors carrying placards and banners also condemned the act of violence and decried the police for its failure for not protecting the church….
Andaryat to a query said: “we are Pakistanis first and than Christians, so we would condemn any such act which would be against Islam or any other religion and would expect the same treatment from our Muslim brothers as well.”
“We are peaceful and hold Muslim and their religious faith in high esteem and condemn the individual act which had become a source of embarrassment and outrage for the Muslims across the world, but we also need protection and respect from them.”
