Being friends to the oppressed

Christian man shot dead after leaving a worship service

It is important that the world knows about the persecution of Christians in Pakistan. Atrocities are happening regularly as can be seen at the blog Friends of the Oppressed. There is also fresh news on a daily basis at the British Pakistani Christian Association blog.

Recent events in the case of Rimsha Masih seem to show that the Pakistani government will respond in some way (though by no means adequately) to pressure from international expressions of disgust at these outrages, and I believe that bloggers can play their part in publicising them. Do take a look at the blogs linked above and add your own voice to those exposing the gross and violent oppression of the innocent.
