The homes of Pakistan’s Christian minority have repeatedly been targeted. Muslim mobs have attacked Christians homes, Churches, Chapels and businesses in Joseph Colony, Youhanabad, Gojra, Taxila, Chianwala, Karachi, Lahore, Peshawar etc. Coerced conversions to Islam from Christianity are a major source of concern for Pakistani Christians, and the minority faces threats, harassment, rape and extortion from extremists.
Pakistani Christians need social and political empowerment. The western governments sometimes bring up this subject, but they ignore it and have not taken any action to stop Christians from being persecuted in Islamic states. We are trying our best to empower Christians in Pakistan with alliance of Lavish.Business. Now We are planning to open a rescue home and sustainable business project to give hope and empower the persecuted Christians in Pakistan. We can not ignore the innocent lives, little children and women that are being tortured, raped and killed. Jesus Christ said “The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim deliverance to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” (Luke 4:18-19)
