Pakistan's Christians are facing renewed persecution in the country. This month Christians in the North West Frontier Province region of the country were sent threats of "dire consequences and bomb attacks" if they didn't "embrace" Islam within 10 days. An 84-year old Christian was the latest to be imprisoned under the blasphemy laws, his house was seized to be turned into a Madrassah and his wife forced to convert to Islam by saying the Sunni Islamic creed.[snip]
On the day of the deadline this notice, signed by the "Taliban's Denotative Department", appeared posted on the door of the church. It repeated the threats made 10 days before. The police say they have caught the perpetrator, an 11-year-old boy. But Mr Bhatti says when the Christians asked the boy to write something to cross check his hand writing with the letters, the policeman said "this is not a school lesson".
