ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN (Worthy News)-- A Christian father in Pakistan's Punjab province was without his home Monday, February 15, as his house was burned down by angry Muslims who killed his son in 2008, rights activists said.

Three Muslim brothers and their accomplices allegedly torched Walayat Masih's house in the city of Gujranwala on January 26, eighteen months after they allegedly killed his eldest son, said U.S.-based advocacy group International Christian Concern (ICC).

Their motives were not clear Monday, February 15. News of both incidents only emerged now as local local police told the victim "to keep quiet" about the violent acts, according to rights investigators. "Unfortunately this is a normal occurrence for Christians in Pakistan," ICC said.

There was no immediate comment from local police, but authorities have come under international pressure to improve protection of minority Christians in the mainly Muslim nation.
