Muslims threaten Christians: Convert or die

According to a report out by Voice of the Martyrs, Christians in neighborhoods in Pakistan are being told by Muslims to leave Christianity and join Islam, or they will die.

There have been numerous threats sent to Peshawar's Kohati area," sources for VOM reported this week. "The letters say if we don't become Muslim we will be killed."

The unsigned threats began several weeks ago, when residents of Peshawar, the capital of the North-West Frontier Province, reported receiving the letters threatening suicide bombings if they did not convert.

Christian residents of the Tailgodom, Sandagodom and Goalgodom neighborhoods received the threatening letters. Each of the districts house about 2,000 residents. They were told they would be wiped out on August 10, if they did not convert. Although the date has come and gone, they do not know what may happen to them at any time. Now, they live in fear and uncertainty, not knowing what might come.

George said the threats were prompted by the suggestion from U.S. presidential candidate Tom Tancredo that the U.S. threaten to bomb Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina in retaliation if there would be a terrorist nuclear attack on the United States.

The letter states there is death to those that follow Americans' religion of Christianity. They are intent on killing all the infidels of the world.
