Just four days after a mob of Islamist extremists burned down a Christian community in the Pakistani city of Jaranwala, more than 700 Catholics gathered to celebrate Mass outside the decimated St. Paul Catholic Church on Aug. 20, 2023.

The anti-Christian mob had broken into a frenzy after two Christians, Rocky Masih and Raja Masih, were accused of profaning the Quran and insulting Islam.
