Pakistan: Christian Nurses In Kirachi Drink Tea Laced With Poison During Ramadan
The nine Christian trainee nurses at the Civil Hospital in Karachi fell ill on Sunday night after reportedly drinking poisoned tea prepared at their hostel.
They were claimed to have been deliberately poisoned because of their faith.
According to one of the affected nurses, a colleague had made the tea after 10pm and they fell ill immediately after drinking it.
The nurses were taken to the Civil Hospital’s emergency ward and sent back after treatment.
They developed complications the next morning and had to be taken to the hospital again…
Condemning the incident, Christian leader Michael Javed sought a judicial investigation.
Claiming that society had become extremely intolerant and was not allowing minorities to live in peace, the former legislator asked the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to take suo motu notice of the incident.
‘The government has turned a blind eye to the persecution of minorities; our girls are being (forcibly) converted and our churches are being attacked,’ he said.” Read more.
