Pakistani Christians mourn 85 killed in suicide bombings at Peshawar church

 

Relatives mourn bombing victims, Peshawar, Pakistan 23/9/13Not my usual “apolitical” post but had to make an exception. In 2006 I was living and working in Lahore, Pakistan. While staying at the Sheraton Hotel (popular with expats) one morning, the cleaning lady came in and saw a christian bible (NIV ver) on my bedside table. Her eyes lit up like a Christmas Tree as she pointed first to the bible then to me as if to say: “this is yours?”. I nodded yes and she broke out in fractured but understandable English telling me that Christians in Pakistan were treated like 2nd class citizens and relegated to the lowest caste, i.e the Arzai or degraded ones and allowed only menial tasks for employment. She took my hand in both of hers and told me earnestly that “we Christians have to stick together, anything extra I needed for my room to just let her know”. I was awe-struck by the realization that I was among a minority and considered a “degraded one”. This opened my eyes about minorities in America, how far we’ve come and how far we have to go. This bombing validates my point, a tragedy reminiscent of the US rural South in the 50’s and 60′
