“Dear Respected

It’s a Pity to tell you about the poor conditions in which most of the Christian Community is living. Where they have the right to talk interact and present their problems to local Diocese or Bishops of their cities. But I must say that Most of the Bishops of Pakistan are more than Corrupt and busy making money and living their lives as Kings.


Bishop of Peshawar who is Illegal and challenged at court Mr.Hamphery peters, Mr. Sadiq Daniel , Bishop of Raiwand, Sialkot, Multan, Mardan, Karachi, Lahore.
Please have proper check and balance over them as the needy are suffering and no one concerns their problems.
Most of the Bishops are charged of something bad even at Local Courts of law.
