Churches in Pakistan are urging the government to protect a Christian community facing threats from Islamic fundamentalists to either convert to Islam or shut their churches and migrate from their native villages in the North West Frontier Province. “The authorities in Pakistan have responded half-heartedly to the situation, sending only one police officer to protect the community, who is stationed at the door of the church,” the National Council of Churches of Pakistan, a grouping of four Protestant churches, said in a statement.
