Church destroyed: Christians unhappy with government in Mardan


Bishop Peter Majeed on Saturday said that the provincial government and local administration has failed to provide protection to the Christians living in Mardan district from the last several years.
He expressed these views while briefing the local reporters at Church on Saturday.
Father (Pastor) Ghulam Shaad, father (Pastor) Chand and other elders of Christians were also present on this occasion.
“It is astonishing act that some extremist in the name of Allah and his Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) burnt, destroyed and looted the Church located in a sensitive area in the Chief Minister Hoti’s constituency and also located near the house of CM’s father-in-law and district police officer (DPO) and other police high-ups offices”, he added.
Bishop Peter Majeed further said that this church was constructed in 1937 and he is fourth Bishop of this church. He added that they collected charity to repair this church.
He said that Muslims and Christians are cousins because their roots are one. He said that we have already condemned the act of the mentioned person, who produced anti-Islam film. He said that the person who produced the film isn’t a Bishop and nor Christian but he is a terrorist and after some months he releases such type of things to create differences among Christians and Muslims.
He added that such anti-Islam film by the mentioned person creates difference among Muslims and Christians and due to which on Friday during protesting hundreds of protesters entered the church and burnt and looted church, house of Bishop, father and school principal and also burnt the school and library in which more then 3000 books about Bible and more then 6000 books about other religion including Islam were present.
The Bishop said that protesters also wanted to burn our child named Zeeshan but God protected him. He added that protesters burnt every thing present in church, houses and school and also broke the iron made things. He said that this process was continued from more then three hours but local administration and police high-ups closed their eyes on this situation.
He added that some of their elders contacted local police high-ups but they sent only five police constables for the protection of church and house which was great joke. He said that Christian are living a peaceful life from the last several years but now a question of security is created among the Christians of Mardan and Christians feel that their lives and property aren’t safe in Mardan.
He accused that local administration is responsible for this destruction. He added that attack of protesters on Church is a pre-planned act because they brought patrol and other such types of things which they threw in the church they very quickly started burning and destroying the things in moments. He said that in all over the country only Mardan church is targeted which is a question for government and local administration.
He demanded the government to provide protection to the Christians and also provide them funds for the reconstruction of church, houses, school and library otherwise Christians will be compelled to migrate to other parts of the country.
Meanwhile, Senator Mohammad Azam Khan Hoti father of Chief Minister Ameer Haider Hoti, member provincial assembly (MPA) Haji Ahmed Khan Bahadur and other representative of different political parties visited the church and show condolence with the Christians.
On this occasion he also showed different parts of church, houses, school burnt by the protesters on Saturday.


  1. Founders of Pakistan had said that if Pakistan is not created those "bad" Hindus will not let them grow and become better human beings , when I read about what is going on in Pakistan I wonder what they would have been like if even without the" Hindu oppression" this is where leaders were able to get them and their people to .

  2. Bishop Peter Majeed, reason the local administration could not protect you is that they were ordered to protect only American embassy, consulates and other institutions. Blame the US administration and paricularly Leon Panetta who said that US will deploy troops in 18 or so muslim countries to provide protection against violent reaction.Instea of migrating to otherparts of Pakistan stay in Mardan ad we muslims, will launch donation schme to help you re-build your church. If the US had decapitated Terry Jones, Sam Bacile, Steve Klein las week, no violent reaction hadtaken place. You he said, "such anti-Islam film by the mentioned person creates difference among Muslims and Christians" and "Christian are living a peaceful life from the last several years but now a question of security is created among the Christians of Mardan and Christians feel that their lives and property aren’t safe in Mardan." Ask yourself, why the question of security is created and who is behind it? If you felt secure for last several years, what went wrong today, saturday 22,9/12? You know the answer and everybody knows the answer……….. Continued s below……….

  3. Bishop Peter Majeed, the people at US Blackhouse, by protecting the maniacs TJ/SB/SK and others have put your lives and property in danger. According to you "the person who produced the film isn’t a Bishop and nor Christian but he is a terrorist and after some months he releases such type of things to create differences among Christians and Muslims". I agree the local administration is at fault and the protestors disobeyed Allah the Prophet (sallallahoalaihwasllam) by acting against the teachings of Islam in which security of peaceul minorities is the responsibilty of th muslims. But, Islam also ordes a death penlalty to those involved in blasphemy about any prophet. If this is not implemented by the US and other regimes, you will always be in danger, werever you migrate, whithin or outside Pakistan. Lodge your protest at the US consulate and blame them too for this mishap. Your real enemies are the evil minds behind the blasphemous movie and the US Blackhouse which is protecting them and putting you and others christians in trouble. Tell the US to behead the culprits wthin 24 hours otherwse other chuches can also be in danger because inspite of being told to remain calm the people are racting violently. Regards.

    • hahhahah what an arguement !!!!! WOW.. So if others do anything wrong they are bad but if we do something wrong than others made us do that!!!!!!

      Get some shame and common sense Man.

      Islam is indeed a disease.

      • If that man has some kind of funny arguments as per his multiple perceptions based on irrelevant concepts than it doesn't mean Islam is owned by only sick minded people.

        • Nazia, my arguments are not funny, "arguments as per his multiple perceptions based on irrelevant concepts than it doesn't mean Islam is owned by only sick minded people." and i am not sick-minded. Let me handle the responses to my comments. Thanks for your kind words about me.
          Cyrus is a bigger disease. He shoudn't laugh because cyber-germs will affect all readers. Common sense is very rare – where can get it? The wazifa prescribed by you has again failed and ADIDAY. Regards.

          • I can extract all kind of funniest material from your inputs in a minute but after last duel I thought it is better to stay in prevention mode otherwise PT readers would nt take time to oust you and me from this forum.Last time just touched your jigar for normal checkup and it brought acute reaction that made your brain, heart, lungs, kidney started, chanting, palpitation,choking and waning respectively so seeing your deterioration I think it is better to prevent you from going to ICS(intensive care state) rather than my prompt reply that could generate out of control chain reaction.

          • Alhamdolillah I am fine! Good to receive your reply. Observer is right, I have become a cyber-jihadi, difficult to reason with. Poet: Daagh Dehlvi has said."ranj ki jab guftagoo hone lagi, aap se tum, tum se tu hone lagi", "chaahiye paigaambar dono taraf, lutf kyaa jab duu-ba-duu hone lagi", "meri rusawaayi ki nobat aa gayi, unki (Nazia's) shuharat quu-ba-quu hone lagi", "ab to mil kar dekhiye kya rang ho, phir hamaarii justaju hone lagi?" So this justaju of your's made you reply, Right? Now I am replying to you in the words of another poet (edited by me), "bara ehsaan hum farma rahe hain, ke unka reply unhein lota rahe hain", "nahin tark-e-muhabbat per wo raazi, qayamat hai ke hum samjha rahe hain", "ye mat bhoolo ke ye lamhaat hum ko, bichharne ke liye milva rahe hain", "kisi soorat unhain nafrat ho hum se, hum apne aib khud ginva rahe hain", "ajab kuch rabt hai tum se ke tum ko, hum apna jaan kar thukra rahe hain". ..continued…

          • That is why I am avoiding you du bu du .one can easily see nightmares aftereffects on you.What should I do to get you out of this ICS.

          • What could you not? I can't elaborate on PT forum, it will be too personal. If I had your email address (i am not asking for it), I would have responded duu-ba-duu.

          • You are cyber gini can access to data but looks have some regard for some geneuine people.Thanks I have no frankness with you to get your repsonse of duu bu duu.You can reserve it for some one really special who have tolerance to bear you in this mental state.

      • This guy is a cyber jihadi , at least , you cannot reason with this mindset , people like need to be drowned away or sent to gitmo. If Pakistan had good counter terrorism program and leaders and govt were Hal way decent human beings , this guy would have been tracked down and put where he belongs

        • Dear Observer i am a cyber jihadi but you can reason with me. People like me had been sent to Malta by the British. Pakistan has a weak counter terrorism program, i agree. You can track me down to House # C-51, KU Campus, Karachi (cell phone # 03082764203 – pls sms only ) and put me as strategic advisor to Obama at the Blackhouse. Regards.

          • Oh really you look me VC of Karachi university who awarded degree of doctorate to Dr rehman so sure if you can make him doc of what??then I am sure you can dream of white house resident in coming days.

          • The degree was awarded by the then VC Dr.Peerzada Qasim with governor sindh Dr.Ishrat-ul-Ebad.
            Continuation of the reply-to-reply above:
            Everybody at the PT forum please bear with me, "wafa ki yaad-gaarain tak na hongi, meri jaan (PT forum) koi din hum ja rahe hain". Observer is tracking me and wants to put me where I belong, Dear Observer where do I belong?Thanks for the term "cyber-jihadi". I have launched Cyber-Jihad from the PT forum and I want to thank PT forum for it. Now cyber-jihadis will protect the churches and places of worship of the minorities and also the mosques and life and property of all Pakistanis and non-Pakistanis. Obama is not taking any action against the culprits, now cyber-jihad is fardh on all cyber users. Regards.

    • Where are they? I need some advice on robotics and drones to cyber-attack the drone system and save Wazirian and other aras from US drone attacks. The US cowards sen un-manned drones because they of being brought down by ston-pelting demnstrators. Regards.

      • You are one sick minded idiot who was sent to Malta by the British buahahahahah,I'll have what this guy is having,thats some deep s**h**i**t**

        • No Hope, I am in Karachi and having a cup of tea and glasses of fruit juice and milk. You'll have what you deserve – don't blame me. Regards.

  4. I am really sorry Bishop Peter Majeed for what has happened to the church! I fail to understand these are the same Muslims who follow Hazarat Omar who entered Jerusalem on foot while his slave was sitting on the back of the camel. He offered total amnesty to all Christians & Jews with no meddling int heir daily affairs! Muslims, the "occupiers" who freed Jerusalem from the Romans actually turned into guarantors of freedom, peace and harmony for the Christians & Jews of Jerusalem!! I fail to understand how can someone call himself a Muslim after throwing bombs in some mosque or burning a church!!
