Pakistan in crisis

The situation is not good in Pakistan. According to MNN:
Johan Candelin, Executive Director of the World Evangelical Alliance's
Religious Liberty Commission, says this situation is bad. "There is no rule of
law right now. Christians are being arrested, human rights workers are being
arrested, and they are not being taken to court. So nobody knows where they are.
Radio and television are not working, and mobile phone networks are cut
down."

According to Candelin, the arrests have been puzzling because President
Musharraf says emergency rule has been imposed to defeat the Islamists.
"However, no Islamists have been arrested, but all the Democrats, all the human
rights workers, and many of those Christians who have been speaking out about
the persecution of Christians--they have been taken by the police.
