Pakistan's United We Mourn: One Nation, One Blood

Hand in hand, hundreds of Muslims formed a defiant human chain Sunday outside Lahore's St. Anthony’s church to show solidarity with those praying within, and to protest recent suicide bombings of Pakistan churches that killed over 100, the deadliest attacks in a growing wave of violence and discrimination against Pakistan's beleaguered Christian minority. The vigil was the second organized by United Pakistan, led by Mohammad Jibran Nasir.

“The terrorists showed us what they do on Sundays. Here we are showing them what we do on Sundays - we unite,” said Nasir. "It is a tough fight but it is the good fight."
