Two Christians kidnapped in Pakistan

The Times of India reports that pro-Taliban militants kidnapped two Christian sanitation workers at a hospital. Regarding the atmosphere of oppression against Christians in this region, the Times of India reports:

Islamist militants in Pakistan have regularly threatened to kill Christian clerics in Southern Punjab’s Khanewal district if they did not “embrace Islam and stop preaching Christianity.” Demanding equal opportunities “as promised” by Pakistan founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah, minority organisations in August had sought a ban on forced conversions and repeal of the stringent blasphemy laws in the Islamic country.
