Pakistan attack is an affront to God and Islam: CEN 8.14.09 p 6. August 20, 2009

The recent attack on the Christian village of Gojra in Pakistan must be denounced by all Christians and Muslims as an affront to God, the C-1 World Dialogue group of religious leaders has declared.

On Aug 9, the Bishop of London, the Rt Rev Richard Chartres and the Grand Mufti of Egypt Dr Ali Gomaa released a statement on behalf of the interfaith group saying “murder, arson and theft committed in the name of God is both a crime and sacrilege.”

The “perpetrators of this attack” had committed crimes “not only against Christians but against Pakistan and beyond even that, against the honour and dignity of Islam,” they said.

Read it all in The Church of England Newspaper.
