PAKISTAN:(LEAD) Growing persecution in Pakistan and Muslim Extremists intrusion into the Christian faith and Church affairs is posing a serious threat to Church autonomy and our most Consitutional right religious freedom. Priests and Pastors;Roman Catholic;Anglican;Pentecostal;Church of Pakistan and all others are being proscribed,the Enunciation of God's Truth is being halted. In many places and on many occasions we are reported that Pastors are stopped to preach and to teach in open crusades and streets Evangelism to the people.

Faith based differences are Basis of Religious Warfare between Christians and Muslims


The inspired and inerrant word of God in the original manuscripts (2 Tim. 3:16). Christians

Respected word of the prophets but the Bible has been corrupted through the centuries and is only correct in so far as it agrees with the Koran.Muslims


Second person of the Trinity. He is the word who became flesh (John 1:114). He is both God and man (Col. 2:9).Christians

A very great prophet, second only to Muhammad. Jesus is not the son of God (9:30) and certainly is not divine (5:17, 75)) and he was not crucified (4:157).Muslims


The place where Jesus atoned for the sins of the world. It is only through this sacrifice that anyone can be saved from the wrath of God (1 Pet. 2:24).Christians

Jesus did not die on the cross. Instead, God allowed Judas to look like Jesus and he was crucified instead.Muslims
How Pakistan Penal Code (PPC Laws) kept silenced Church?

Why Church is silenced and abandoned itself from Religious obligations?

You can’t preach the Word of God truthfully without preaching with courage.

Church is fearful and fearsome.

There is not a single church or Pastor who is following and obeying the teachings of Jesus Christ and fulfilling GREAT COMMISSION  in Pakistan. Church IS DEAD IN SPIRIT AND VISION.They are under the fear of persecution and have no courage to preach.They have no practically faith in this verse,11“I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.John 10-11

Religious liberty for Christians in Pakistan.

In Spite of this ,on every independence day of Pakistan,every Pastor and Church arrange programme and celebrate Independence Day of Pakistan in Churches,showing they are enjoying full freedom and have every right in Pakistan and spending a lot of funds on this Day.There is not a single Muslim Priest who celebrate this Independence Day in any mosque.Once there was time when pastors used loud speakers in Churches and now they are banned  to use loud speakers in Churches but Muslims day and night using as they wish.They preach  their religion in streets and Bazars(Markets) ,at public places where they wish to preach.

What Should the Church Be Doing?

Researchers James Patterson and Peter Kim concluded that Americans in virtually every region of the nation, "simply do not turn to God or religion to help them decide about the seminal or moral issues of the day" (The Day America Told the Truth, p. 199).

At the dawn of the 21st century, does the Church still have a purpose? Can you have a part in it?
Act like a Christian in any circumstance. Follow Jesus' (the Son of God) greatest commandment: Love God completely and everybody even if they treat you wrongly whether you know them or not. Jesus said "love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you" Jesus says in John 13:15, "I have given you an example, that as I have done, so should you do." In I Corinthians 11:1, Paul says, "Imitate me as I imitate Christ." Ephesians 5:1 says, "Be imitators of God as dear children." Also many Believers are "empty, swept and garnished" (Matthew 12:44).

Would you be part of LEAD to break this silence of Churh? 

We are a group of Pastors,lawyers and teachers,we are motivated by Jesus to break this silence.We are working for the persecuted and for the growth of Gospel in Pakistan.We are working without any fear of persecution and spread The Word of God.We have every kind of care for Church according to the demand of 21st centuary.Our work is only for the Glory of Gospel and for the fulfilment of GREAT COMMISSION.
