Message from Shamas Pervaiz

Here is a full account of the recent Christian protests in Pakistan, received from Brither Shams pervaiz:

Regarding martyr Robert Danish in result of excessive violence by the jail administration.

The whole christian community in Sialkot protested making rallies, processions and prayer meetings. The first procession made had hundreds of christian from local area along with several members of Pakistan Adam Rights.

The second procession after postmortem was very impressive having MPAs Pervaiz Rafiq, Fathers (Nasir Gulfam, Shahzada Khurram, Moris Jalal), Pastor Jashua, Bishop Jonathan, Member Zila Council Dr. Rafiq Sylvester, Member Tehsil Council Zulfiqar Ghori, Councillors
Tanveer Saqib, Khurram Shahzad, hundreds members of Pakistan Adam Right lead by Malik Shamas Pervaiz (Vice Chairman), chairman SMS Foundation Sarfraz Khan and other thousands christians from the local area.

Unfortunately, thids incident was not covered by the electronic and press media as compared to the incident of Gojra. Moreover christian communities in other cities did not makeprocessions in other cities.

The funeral prayer was attended by Kamran Michael (Provincial Minister), MNA Dr. Nelson Azeem, MPA Pervaiz Rafiq, Fathers, Pastors and hundreds of Christians. The funeral faced tear gas shelling, lathi charge and even fired by the police.

During all this situation it has been very badly felt that finance was the basic need to make or arrange such protests - due to lack of funds the processions were not made more impressive which could have been possible if some funds were available. It is the thing which we are feeling that we must gain from some source...?

Still a lot of work is needed to be done to make a more impressive identity for existence of our Christian community in Pakistan to avoid such incidents in future. God bless you.

Kind regards,
Shamas Pervaiz
