Pakistani Christians receive Muslim death threats

Dec. 29 (AsiaNews) - Christian leaders have received death threats in Sangla Hill, Pakistan, where Muslim leaders incited mob violence against Christians in November, the AsiaNews service reports.

“If you don’t accept our deal in two days, then get ready to die,” a spokesman for an Islamic extremist group reportedly told Christians. Two clerics and one prominent Christian layman in Sangla Hill received the same threatening telephone message. Police traced the calls to a public phone booth.

The "deal" to which the threatening message referred involves blasphemy charges against a Christian from Sangla Hill. The man who was accused of insulting Islam insists that he is innocent, and is being accused by vengeful neighbors after a financial dispute. The argument over his guilt or innocence triggered the mob violence on November 12.
