The family had been washing a Pakistani flag, ready to put it up or hang it out for Independence Day. Unfortunately it blew away in the wind and landed on a neighbours house. Even more unfortunately, it was a Muslim neighbour who, leading instantly to claims of blasphemy. Because the flag had the phrase 'May Allah protect the beloved land' the neighbours had the opportunity not only to claim that the Christians had deliberately thrown it and have disgraced the name of Allah, but they went on to fabricate claims that the Christians had used the flag as a rug, so that they sat on the name of Allah.
There are 15 Christian families in the neighbourhood, known as Qatil Garhi, and after the incident was reported in the local mosques, they are very afraid, because the local Muslims are gathering and using the alleged 'insult' to threaten to burn out all the Christians.
Please pray for them, for peace in every way
