In Pakistan, the level of pressure is high in all spheres of life. Persecution often does not come from the state, but from radical Islamic groups as well as from family, friends and neighbours. One continuing example of the treatment of religious minorities – including Christians – are the notorious blasphemy laws. Overt violence conceals the everyday violence against Christian girls and women who are frequently abducted, raped and forcefully married and converted. Consequently, Pakistan gets almost the maximum score on violence in the World Watch List.

“Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him.”
