PAKISTAN - “Demasiados niños cristianos víctimas de violencia”: llamada al gobierno y a la ONU

Lahore (Agencia Fides) – “Las noticias, que cada vez aumentan más, de actos de violencia contra niños cristianos son realmente perturbadoras, inquietantes. Para los cristianos, parece que vivir en Pakistán es cada vez más difícil. Son muchas las chicas cristianas secuestradas, violadas y convertidas al Islam por la fuerza o incluso asesinadas, como en el caso de Amaría Masih, la 'Maria Goretti de Pakistán'. Hay niños secuestrados y asesinados por tráficos oscuros, como el reciente caso de Sunil Masih o el de Shazia Bashir. Ahora a los niños también se les acusa de blasfemia, como a Rimsha Masih. Si se daña a los niños es que realmente se ha llegado a un límite intolerable de abuso y crueldad”: lo declara a la Agencia Fides el padre dominico James Channan, OP, Director del “Peace Center”, de Lahore, muy comprometido en el diálogo interreligioso.
