Floowing an allegation that the Quaran was desecrated by a Christian and a one room Islamic school was burned, thousands of muslims in Pakistan went on an anti-Christian rampage.


Some 2,000 organized Muslims first vandalized three churches, a nuns' convent, two Catholic schools, the houses of a Protestant pastor and a Catholic priest, a girls' hostel and some Christian homes, according to Asia News.

Then they burned them to the ground, while about 450 Christian families fled yesterday. They have not returned.

The Justice and Peace Commission accuses the police of "criminal negligence" because they did not intervene.

Lawrence John Saldanha, archbishop of Lahore Archdiocese and chairman of the National Commission for Justice and Peace, said "the attack seems to have been planned and organized as the attackers were brought to the site in buses and instigated to commit violence and arson. It gave our people a lot of fear and anxiety but we hope the government will do something."

I didn't see any where near this much of a reaction when the Churches were attacked in France. The French Christians just kind of let that one slip. That's not true for muslims though, they go on rampages after anyone desecrates anything to do with their religion.
