Muslim mob injure dozens of Christian in attack on pretext to blasphemy in Pakistan.

Gujranwala: April 30, 2011. The Muslim demonstrators turned violent when copy of burnt Quran was found in Aziz Colony, residential area where Christians and Muslims shared neighborhood from decades in very harmonious way in Gujranwala city of Punjab province of Pakistan.

The Muslim mob attacked on houses of Christians banging their doors and beating any one they found in home. Attackers were abusing and disrespecting women and injuring men, Shouting “Hurmate Rasool Zindabad” “Namoos-e-Rasool Ka Mujram Mout ka Haqdar” “Kafir Hai..Essaie Kafir Hai” which meant “Long Live respect of Prophet Mohammad” “Death for Blasphemer” “Infidel..Christians are infidel”

Police broke up a mob of people armed with sticks that was threatening to attack a church Saturday after word spread that two copies of the Quran had been burned in eastern Pakistan, officials said.

The tiny Christian minority in predominantly Muslim Pakistan is often intimidated and subjected to mob violence. The crowds marching toward the church in the city of Gujranwala blamed Christians for the burning of the Qurans.

Police charged the crowd of 300 people marching toward the church, lightly injuring several protesters, said Saeed Wahla, the top administrator in the city. The protesters blocked a street with barricades of burning tires.

A burned Quran was found Saturday, and two weeks earlier several burned pages from the holy book turned up, said Nabil Awan, another local official.

Pakistan's Christians, who make up 1.6 percent of the country's population of 180 million, live in fear of being persecuted or arrested under the country's harsh laws against blasphemy, which are often misused to settle personal scores or family feuds. The laws call for the death penalty for anyone insulting Islam, its holy book or the Prophet Muhammad.
