Muslim Villagers Rebuilding Church for Christian Neighbors in Pakistan

Muslim villagers in a Pakistani community are helping to build a church for their Christian neighbors, seeking to show peace and solidarity in a country deeply troubled by religious persecution of minorities.
After local riots we are trying to bring people together even more,” villager Ijaz Farooq told BBC News in an interview posted on Monday, referring to 2009 riots in the nearby city of Gojra against Christian homes, which left 10people dead.”We have increased our activity so we don’t have to face something like that. By building this church we want to show that we are united as a community,” he added.
The villagers in Khaksabad are building a new mud chapel for the Christians, whose previous church was destroyed by monsoon rains.
