In Pakistan, in the city of Lahore, Muslims put two bombs in two different churches and as the Christians were worshipping God, they ignited the bombs almost at the same time, slaughtering and horrifically wounding eighty five people. Seventy were amongst the injured while 15 were killed. Among those killed was a poor eight year old Christian boy, alongside a fifteen year old Christian boy. Here is a video of the blast:
Enraged citizens took to the streets and seized two of the bombing suspects, beat them up and then took one of them and lit him on fire. Here is the video of the beating before the immolation of the terror suspect:
Here is photo said by one report to be the Christians surrounded the terrorist they just burned to death:
Its good to know that Christians in Pakistan are finally fighting back and executing justice in a country where no one cares for them. Here is a video of the Christian victims weeping for the martyrs of this attack:
According to one report, the bombers were Taliban:
Pakistani Taliban suicide bombers exploded themselves near two churches in the eastern city of Lahore on Sunday as worshippers were gathered inside, killing 14 people, officials said, in the latest attack against religious minorities in the increasingly fractured country.
In the tense aftermath, angry mobs lashed out at people they suspected of involvement in the attacks — including one person who was burned to death — and Christian crowds set fire to cars in a show of defiance in the country’s second largest city and the prime minister’s seat of power.
Life in Pakistan is increasingly fraught with danger for religious minorities, especially Christians. They have been targeted by extremist Sunni Muslim militants who object to their faith.
They are also discriminated against in the wider society where they can often only get menial jobs like garbage collection, and are frequently targets of blasphemy accusations.
The explosions occurred in quick succession in the Christian neighborhood of Youhana Abad at two churches while parishioners were celebrating Sunday morning services inside. The churches are about 600 meters (650 yards) apart.
At least 70 people were wounded, said Zahid Pervez, the provincial director general of health, who gave the death toll.
One unidentified witness told Pakistan’s Geo television that the main gate to one of the churches targeted was closed so people were using a smaller gate.
“One bomber exploded himself near that gate, that created chaos and during the course there was another blast,” he said.
In the aftermath of the blasts the mood quickly turned violent. Much of the country is on edge after years of militant violence including an attack on a Peshawar school in December that killed 150 people — mostly students.
Local television footage showed an angry crowd beating a person they thought was connected to the attack, while others attacked buses in the city. The crowds burned to death one person they believed was involved in the attack and tried to lynch another, said Haider Ashraf, deputy inspector general for Lahore.
Two police who were protecting the churches were also killed in the explosions, which he confirmed were caused by suicide bombers.
A spokesman for the Punjab province government condemned the attacks but also said it was unfortunate that the mob had attacked suspects. He said authorities are reinforcing security at the 481 remaining churches across the city.
The Christian counterattack against the terrorists will be used by the Taliban as a justification to slaughter Christians with more severity. Ahsanullah Ahsan, a spokesman for the Taliban, has already said: “There will be more of such attacks”.
This could lead to more fighting between Christians and Muslins in Pakistan. Either way, its good to know that Christians did not just stand as victims after be so horrifically attacked.
