Pakistan Okara Military Farms: Anti-Christian provocation and unity of the Muslim and Christian tenants

A very unfortunate incident at Okara Military Farms.

Last night, some unknown people went to the graveyard of Christian community belonging to Chack 4/4/10, to vandalise their graveyard, they broke the Cross sign from the graves,

Today, hundreds of Cristian and Muslim tenants from Okara Military Farms went to the graveyard for a pray and demanded that the government must take stern action against those who have done this.

They say that this is an effort to break the unity of the Muslim and Christian tenants struggling for land rights in a united movement launched by Anjman Mozareen Punjab,

This act is done deliberately to promote religious sectarianism, the Muslim tenants went to the village express solidarity and assured the complete unity among the two communities to defeat the evil design of those who have carried out this vandalism.
