In a joint press conference Pakistan Christian National Party and Centre for Legal Aid Assistance and Settlement activists insisted upon the government to condemn the killings of Christians in Iraq.

Addressing the conference, vice-chairman of Pakistan Christian National Party Martin Javed Michael said the situation in Iraqi city of Mosul, which has been captured by IS militants is very critical. He said they were killing Christians in a gruesome manner by cutting the necks and hanging them on a cross for public display. He said Iraqi Christian children had been killed by militants using deadly weapons, and women and girls were raped in front of their parents.

Centre for Legal Aid Assistance and Settlement Director, Joseph Francis said Christians in Pakistan were grieved over the open violation of human rights in Iraq and hoped that their concerns over this deteriorating situation were taken into consideration by the government.
