A Pakistani Christian man and his family were forced to flee from their home to escape the wrath of an enraged Muslim mob after he was accused of blasphemy during an altercation over water with a group of Muslim men.
According to the British Pakistani Christian Association, the accused Christian man, 40-year-old Aftab Gill and his family from the Wazirabad area of Punjab province, regularly collected their home's water supply from the local mosque's tap — just like many others in the community.
As the mosque's water tap is the only real clean supply available to the community, Gill, who cares for his five children, was drawing water on Aug. 14 when he was told by a Muslim man that Christians were not allowed to draw from the tap unless they accepted Islam. more >>

A Pakistani Christian family in Britain claims they are being threatened and harassed for renouncing Islam and have accused the Church of England of failing to support them.
In 1996 Nissar Hussain, his wife, Kubra, and their six children converted to Christianity from Islam and they never imagined the violent backlash that would ensue. The former Muslims said their decision to leave Islam led to somewhat of a community hate campaign that drove them out of their family home in Bradford, England, in 2006.
Car windows were smashed, the family's house was egged and they were even attacked in the street by neighbors who deemed them to be "apostates" or traitors to Islam for accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior. more >>
More than a thousand Pakistani Christians and church leaders in Lahore gathered outside of Punjab's legislative assembly on Wednesday to demand that the province's legislature throw out a proposed amendment that they beleive is designed to strip voting rights from religious minorities, women and workers in local elections.
According to UCA News, the proposed amendment would alter the electoral system so that women, religious minorities, and workers would not be able to vote for their representatives in their municipal councils.
Instead of voting for their own representatives who are legally allotted to their respective social classes, the amendment would give council members from the majority party the right to select the council's two female members, a non-Muslim member and representatives for workers and youth. more >>
A group of 64 legal experts and scholars have signed a statement calling on Americans to oppose the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision legalizing gay marriage nationwide.
The Washington, DC-based American Principles Project posted the legal experts' statement Thursday on their website in which they denounced the 5-4 ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges.
"The Court's majority opinion eschewed reliance on the text, logic, structure, or original understanding of the Constitution, as well as the Court's own interpretative doctrines and precedents, and supplied no compelling reasoning to show why it is unjustified for the laws of the states to sustain marriage as it has been understood for millennia as the union of husband and wife," declared the statement. more >>
