Any of our northern readers who are free on Saturday afternoon may wish to attend this;
The British Pakistani Christian Association
is calling for all who care about the rights of Christians and other minorities in Pakistan, especially those in the North of the UK, to come and join our protest outside the Pakistani Consulate in Manchester on 1st September 2012 from 12 noon to 3pm. Guest speaker David Dean of Nelson, Jabber Singh from the British Sikh Council, Ranbir Singh from the Hindu Human Rights Group and Ooberfuse who will be performing their well know campaign songs...
The BPCA has called this rally after a recent spate of crimes against Christians in the last few weeks, including the now widely publicized case of Rimsha, a girl with disability - possibly Downs Syndrome - around the age of 11 or 12, who was accused of burning a book with verses from the Quran, and has been arrested for blasphemy, amidst mobs demanding she be burnt alive, mobs who also beat and tortured her family and burnt Christian homes. In addition in the last few weeks there have been a number of shootings of Christians, in one case in a land grab, as well as a gang rape and murder of a 12 year old girl on Pakistan's independence day while her parents were in hospital, and the brutal murder of a recently orphaned Christian boy whose organs appear to have been taken for organ trafficking.
Address 137 Dickenson Road, Rusholme, Manchester M14 5JB.
Nearest major railway station is Manchester Piccadilly. Ardwick station and Levenshulme station are also close by.
