Pakistani police said today that 2 gunmen on a Motorbike have opened fire on christian coming out of a church in the southwestern city of Quetta, two people were killed on the spot and five others seriously seriously wounded.
Police officer Javed Ahmed says two gunmen riding on a motorcycle targeted churchgoers as they were leaving after the Sunday evening service in the Eisa Nagri neighborhood of Quetta, the capital of Baluchistan province.
Ahmed says a young girl was among the wounded and that two others were in critical condition at a hospital. Police said a search was ongoing in the area to find the attackers.
Baluchistan has for years been the scene of a low level insurgency by Baluch separatist groups. Islamic militants also operate there.
Investigation is on-going according to the local police department but so far no group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.
No one will ever be arrested or tried for killing a christian in Pakistan, i don’t think there is a precedence for that, in Pakistan killing a non muslim is part of Islamic rights for every muslims, so the idea of an on-going investigation is a statement for the press only.
Recently, a church was set on fire and thousands of Pakistanis were dancing around the church, praising Allah for set ablaze a christian church. Up till today no one was ever arrested or prosecuted for the crime.
