On 10 January 2012 the authorities bulldozed a Christian welfare centre in Lahore, including a church and homes of Christians. It had been used for various purposes, including as a home for the elderly and a girls’ school. Hundreds of local Christians gathered at the site to protest against the demolition, and Christian leaders said that the Punjab government had acted illegally. Pray that the Pakistani authorities will recognise the injustice of this land seizure and transfer the property back to the Christians. Pray also that the authorities will treat Christians on equal terms with Muslims. Illegal seizure of land is one of the many injustices that Christians in Pakistan have to suffer.
