On March 16, suicide bombers affiliated with the Pakistani Taliban launched attacks against two churches conducting Sunday morning services in the predominantly Christian city of Lahore, killing at least 14 people and injuring 70 others. Although police said that the bombers were stopped by either worshippers or security personnel, the attackers still managed to detonate their explosives.

Christian leaders from across Pakistan country attended the funeral for the victims following two days of violent protests by the community members against the blasts.

According to Reuters, the Pakistani government had called in 5,000 police and paramilitary rangers to control the law and order situation in the region, where violent clashes between Christians and Muslims erupted. Several protesters were killed and about a dozen wounded in the clashes. (Photo: K.M. Chaudary/AP)

Speaking on Tuesday, Manual Mani, a pastor attending the funerals, said the act of terrorism would not stop Christians from practicing their faith within the country. "I would like to tell these terrorists if they think that they can push us back from our faith, they are deadly, entirely, very much at fault," he said.

Christian schools also remained closed as prayer services and funerals for the bombing victims took place, Shipping and Ports Minister Kamran Michael, a prominent Christian community leader, told the AFP.
