Jaranwala violence:Pakistani Christians demonstrate in London, demands better protection for community

| @indiablooms | 23 Aug 2023, 08:26 pm

Pakistani Christians demonstrated outside the country's High Commission in London recently against the violence in Jaranwala region when attackers set several churches on fire.

More than 100 Pakistani Chris­tians living across England travelled to London to demand better protection for Christians back home and condemn the violence that took place in Jaranwala last week, reports Dawn News.

Apart from carrying Pakistani flags, the protesters were seen holding banners demanding the abolition of blasphemy laws and also placards saying “Christian Lives Matter”.

A delegation also met Pakistan’s high commissioner to share their concerns and demand action, Dawn News reported.

Rehana Noreen, a nurse trained at Aga Khan University Hospital in Pakistan, said she moved to the UK in 2006 and has since worked for the National Health Service.

“I appeal to the UK government to allow British citizens to sponsor relatives so they can immigrate here. I am concerned for my family members back home,” she told Dawn News.
