New Threats in Pakistan

New Threats in Pakistan


In a recent Breitbart news report, Donna Edmunds references new advisories from the Pakistani military to Christians in their country that ISIS affiliates are “publicly announcing that they will start to attack “infidels” within the country.” There are conflicting opinions concerning these threats. Some say that these affiliates are just Taliban defectors looking to align with ISIS. Some say ISIS has not even accepted the allegiance of these belligerents.

Worries are also arising that Christians who flee Pakistan will not be able to find refuge in western countries such as the United States and Britain. For more details on this building tension in Pakistan, click here to read Breitbart’s story.
