I'm pleasantly surprised to see this kind of sacral architecture in Pakistan. Additionally you must make allowance that it's muslim country but some churches seem to be from some european country. Chiefly St Patrick's Cathedral looks very wonderfully. Very interesting thread

Minorities have faced quite a hard time in Pakistan.
Things have been improving in the last decade or so with the rise of the relatively secular middle-class. However, apart from the major cities, Christians, Hindus, Ahmediyyas and other minorities face severe discrimination.

Hope there will be a higher tolerance level within the society... I'm sure Islam promotes equal treatment of all religions, but some Muslims are still unable to follow their religion in an appropriate way...

Its the opposite. Big cities usually have a more cosmopolitan crowd, so minorities are treated well.

Pakistan isn't the only country! Minorities have faced and continue to face a hard time around the world, especially in the region that Pakistan is in.

Yeah! The Churches in Pakistan are isloated. There aren't any churches in the big cities at all! The few that are, are all damaged because we don't like Christians!

As the other Pak forumer had said, Minorities have faced issues across the region. The recent riots in Orisa for example. The difference is that Pakistan get far more bad press.

If u agree to burn or damage some churches because of that silly reason, then u have no right to be angry if someone burn or damage mosques with the same reason... (But I think not all Muslims have the same opinion with you, just some crazy people who do that, and unfortunately I found you as one of them)

I think I don't want to continue this crazy thread anymore. I'm going to be crazy too if I alwayz reply to a crazy person's statement!

Last year, I fell down from a horse infront of this church
