Christians in Gujranwala have expressed their anger over the illegal seizure of the burial land allotted to the Christian community before the creation of Pakistan.

The local Christian community rallied, calling for immediate action against the perpetrators.
It alleges that locals by the name of Cheema Brothers illegally seized the graveyard which belongs to the Christian community.

The protesters said the graveyard covers 26 Kanals and 10 Marlas. During the protest Christian leaders revealed this burial land was allocated to the Christian community before partition.

This rally was led by Pastor Binyamin Mattu from the Presbyterian Church and Izhaq Masih from the Catholic Church.

Mr Masih said the local police and civil administration must take notice of the illegal seizure.
