After the tragic events in Orlando, many are once again pointing fingers towards the muslims with hate. While there are just a few demented and twisted human beings, the rest of the Islamic world only knows 1 thing; Peace. The following story will prove that not everyone incites hate.
In the northeastern part of Punjab province in Pakistan, muslim villagers are helping their christian brothers and sisters to build a church by raising funds.
The initiative began shortly before Easter this year when a group of villagers from Faisalabad decided to help out.
There are about 20 families in the village that will benefit from having a church, a place to worship.
Right now, the christian villagers have to arrange for a home where they gather to worship.
Before we had to rent or borrow a house in which to hold Christmas, Easter and other festivities – Faryad Masih, a christian villager.
But now we will soon have our own chapel. At first I didn’t believe it when Muslim community leaders said they would build us a chapel, But to my surprise, construction work began within one month of the initial announcement.Our community’s longtime dream is now coming true – he added.
The Christian community is Pakistan’s largest religious minority which represents 3% of the total population of the country.
