A Muslim mob attacked Christian-owned shops and a church in the Francis Colony of Gujranwala, Pakistan on Wednesday 3 April following a dispute between Christian youth and a Muslim cleric a day earlier.

The violence occurred only a few hours after Pakistan’s Supreme Court condemned police for not intervening in anti-Christian riots on 9 March that resulted in some 180 Christian homes being torched in the Joseph Colony of Lahore.

The court’s admonishment, however, appeared to be disregarded by police who again failed to protect Christian property from being destroyed by a violent mob, advocates say.
