Christian citizens in an Islamic state; the Pakistan experience.


Christian citizens in an Islamic state; the Pakistan experience.

Gabriel, Theodore.

Ashgate Publishing Co.


118 pages




The Christians in what became the Islamic state of Pakistan were not the same affluent elite as in other parts of India, explains Gabriel (religious studies, U. of Gloucestershire), but had converted from the lower castes during the British colonial period to escape discrimination by the dominant Hindus. He discusses the history of the community and its current status in the shadow of Islamic resurgence and the US government's Global War on Terror.
