Pakistan: Attack on Christians

George W. Bush spread 'democracy' in Afghanistan. Now Obama is spreading 'democracy' in Afghanistan. Some of that 'democracy' has spilled over into Pakistan. Violence has become norm in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Now Taliban are targeting Christians. Christians are already poor and underprivileged in Pakistan/India. And now their lives are in danger.

There are about 70,000 Christians in the city of
Peshawar, capital of deeply conservative Khyber
Pakhtunkhwa province

"But some of the violence against Christians is organised and directly related to American-led war in Afghanistan, so has an expressly political motive.

Months after the US-led coalition attacked Afghanistan in late 2001, a grenade attack on a chapel inside a Christian mission hospital Taxila city killed four people."
