Pakistani government bulldozes Church buildings

This morning Punjab officials in Pakistan ordered several families to leave the building in which they slept at 6:30 a.m. and proceeded to demolish every building on a piece of property owned by the Church, including seven houses and a church.

The families are now homeless.

His Excellency the Most Reverend Sebastian Shaw, Archbishop of Lahore, can prove ownership of the property since 1887 and has accused the government of "land-grabbing."
