Pakistan’s Christians face uncertain future after Musharraf resignation

[Christianity Today UK] 20 Aug 2008--The future for Pakistan's minority Christian community is an uncertain one after the resignation of Pervez Musharraf this week, says Glenn Penner of Voice of the Martyrs Canada.

“Even Christians in Pakistan are somewhat mixed in their response,” Mission Network News quoted him as saying. “There are those that are quite glad to see a return to civilian government, and there are others that are also concerned with, I think, the uncertainty of what is going to happen now for the future.”

Musharraf ended his nine-year reign as Pakistan’s army chief when he stepped down on Monday to avoid impeachment.
