The religion of peace strkes again…
Doctors and security personnel at a hospital in Pakistan reportedly killed and tortured a Christian man with medical scissors and scalpels and seriously injured two other Christians who survived the ordeal, triggered when they demanded care for their pregnant family member.
The British Pakistani Christian Association (BPCA), which tracks cases of Christian persecution, identified the wounded victims as Anil Saleem, a brother of the pregnant woman, and the woman’s husband Kashif Shafeeq.
Sunil Saleem, the 28-year-old brother of pregnant Kiran Saleem, succumbed to his injuries.
Kiran reportedly went to the hospital in Lahore for a scheduled appointment.

The religion of peace!!!
LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) – A Pakistani court has acquitted twenty people suspected of involvement in the lynching and burning alive of a Christian couple accused of blasphemy in 2014.
Shahzad Masih, 26, and Shama Shahzad, 24, brick factory workers and parents of three, were burned alive in an industrial kiln by a mob incited by accusations that the couple desecrated the Qu’ran in the town of Kot Radha Kishan.
Police arrested scores of villagers and a court in November 2016 sentenced five men to death while ten others were given varying jail terms.
NORTH WAZIRISTAN, PAKISTAN — Pakistan is building a border wall with Afghanistan, after decades of unsuccessfully controlling the flow of terrorists and criminals who quietly slip back and forth across the porous 1,500-mile border between the two countries, evading capture.
The wall is not concrete, but consists of a comprehensive border system that includes two layers of 12-feet-tall barbed-wire fencing, surveillance cameras, solar lights, an intrusion detection system, and hundreds of manned forts and thousands of observation posts. It is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019.
Last week, Breitbart News and two other news outlets were escorted by the Pakistan military into the country’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) to one fort along the border near the Pakistani village of Miran Shah and just about 20 miles from Khost, Afghanistan – once considered a terrorist hotbed.
There, shiny double-layered fencing could be seen zigzagging the hilly terrain for miles between observation posts, spaced two to three miles apart. They are currently being manned by the Pakistan Army Frontier Corps.

The religion of peace…
A mob of an estimated 3,000 Islamic extremists in Pakistan reportedly called for the beheading of a 17-year-old Christian whose phone, after reappearing days after he lost it, contained blasphemous content that authorities could use to sentence him to life in prison or death.
The case is the latest in a series of incidents each year involving a member of a religious minority group accused engaging in the act of insulting or showing contempt or lack of reverence for Islam in the Muslim-majority country.
On Monday, the accused blasphemer Patras Masih claims “an unknown person added blasphemous content to his FB [Facebook],” the British Pakistani Christian Association (BPCA) reports.
“It had happened during the 1965 and the 1971 wars. Such large number of mortar bombs had not since fallen in Arnia…”
