A Pakistani Christian says he receives daily hate mail and death threats for reporting on the persecution of Christians in Pakistan, Examiner.com reports. Dr. Nazir S. Bhatti, editor of the Pakistan Christian Post and founder of the Pakistan Christian Congress, received one such email last week that said: "Pakistan is an Islamic nation. It is a nation for Muslims, by Muslims, of Muslims. ... Now you people [Christians] are not Muslims, and you are not Pakistanis, but you are only guests who happen to live in Pakistan. Truth be told, we do not like you people, and would rather you leave our beautiful country. ... We will make life for you in Pakistan a living hell, I swear to God so don't forget it." Pakistan's Christians face continuous persecution, including killings and imprisonment, but the culprits are never brought to justice.
