A 38-year-old layman has been gunned down in Pakistan’s largest city.
Arnold Archie Dass was slain in front of dozens of onlookers in the oldest Christian neighborhood in Karachi. In the decades since property values have risen in the neighborhood, members of the “Muslim land mafia” have been harassing area Christians, the Pakistan Christian Post reported; the area is now predominantly Muslim.
The victim was getting into his car to go home from work. Local sources say a group of gunmen opened fire in front of dozens of witnesses.
…the group of Islamic extremists who carried out the attack left the scene undisturbed after checking that their target would not survive.
