Pakistani Christian, Sawan Masih, was accused of insulting the Prophet Muhammed and was quickly arrested. A mass mob of 3000 Muslims wanted the police to hand Masih over to them. The mob vandalized two churches, attacked a poor Christian neighborhood, called Joseph Colony, and burned 180 houses making Christians flee in fear.
According to the article “ About 100 million Christians Persecuted around the world,” Christianity is the largest growing faith with 2.2 billion followers or 32 percent of the world’s population. In the future, Christians risk further persecution and oppression because of the rising number of Christians being more open to share their faith and also the rise in number of people being converted to Christianity.
