An Islamic State terrorist attack against Christians in Quetta Sunday has led one Christian leader to warn that Pakistan has never been more dangerous for non-Muslims than it is now.

«It increasingly looks like the IS is targeting the Christian minority in particular, for want of better reason, simply because Christians are an anathema, pariahs in their own country,» said Wilson Chowdhry, Chairman of the British Pakistani Christians Association.

Around 6 p.m. Sunday, as Christians departed a church service in Quetta, three gunmen on two motorbikes drove by and indiscriminately opened fire on people walking along Essa Nagri Road. Witnesses said they heard the terrorists shout «Allahu Akbar» as they sped away.

Two 19-year-old men, Azhar Mash and Raheel Masih, were killed. Three other people were injured including a man and a 9-year-old girl.

Chowdhry said two-and-a-half years ago Christians raised concerns about the growing influence of the Islamic State in Pakistan. He said government officials ignored their concerns.
