PAKISTAN: Evangelists Beaten at Muslim Festival


Bird Mod
A team of Pakistani Christian evangelists supported by The Voice of the Martyrs was attacked and beaten Friday, 26 January, after handing out more than 13,000 Christian tracts at a Muslim festival in Pakpattan, Pakistan. Three members of the four-member team were roughed up by radical Muslims then taken to the police station where they were detained and questioned before being released. However, the fourth evangelist, the leader of the team, was badly beaten by a mob of more than 100 angry Muslims, who then dragged him through the crowd before taking him to the police station. He was severely beaten. VOM contacts have taken him to a hospital for medical care.
