Taliban Tells Pakistani Christians: Convert or Die

Edited to add: BBC News Story Here

This really doesn't surprise me after how the Taliban has acted. It's just more of their stupid crap.

About 500 Pakistani Christians in Charsadda, a town in the North West Frontier Province bordering Afghanistan, received letters earlier this month telling them to close their churches and convert by Thursday or be the target of "bomb explosions."...

Asif Daudzai, a spokesman for the provincial government, asked Christians not to panic, saying authorities were doing all they could to ensure their protection.

"Christians are our brothers and sisters, and we will not allow any one to harm them," he told The Associated Press.

Brothers and sisters? Why does that not reassure me? Honestly I don't think Muslims consider them their "brothers and sisters". That is from 14 years of my own experience with Muslims, some from Pakistan. I don't think most of them wish them ill, but they don't consider them brothers, as only Muslims can be "brothers and sisters".

A., not a sister anymore

In cases such as this, a public condemnation of the threats against the maltreated victim(s) should be organized more quickly by all people, but espectially Muslims. The intent behind the unsigned letter is from pure evil. The fellow Muslim citizens of north-west Pakistan need to stand up against this oppression and injustice. If Muslims were being targeted in my neighbourhood, I'd protect them.
