A Muslim Destroy A Church To make A Brand New One
You see this man? He’s a Muslim farmer living in a small village in rural Pakistan. Many people might look at him and think that the man is a “radical Muslim” destroying yet another church.
Actually, the exact opposite is happening. The man in this picture is part of a group of Muslims helping their Christian neighbors build a brand new church. The village is a stones throw from the city of Gojra, where in 2009 a mob attacked a Christian community. 10 people were killed in that riot.
Churches and houses were reduced to ashes. Yet here we see Muslims and Christians working together. We see them sending the message that communal harmony is not only possible but preferable. Small acts of love. That’s the heart of this story. That’s what humanity needs. In this world, there are people who fan the flames, and then there are people who douse the flames. Which kind of person are you going to be? I hope you’re like the man in this picture.
