Citing "terrorism threats", the government of Pakistan's Punjab province banned protests Monday, March 22, against the "refusal" by police to detain those who burned a Christian man for not converting to Islam, while raping his wife.
It wasn't clear who had made the threats. Officials of Pakistan's Christian minority expressed concerns however about attacks by Islamic extremists, including fighters linked to al-Qaida and other militant groups.
The officers are also suspected of having raped his wife, 33-year-old Martha Masih
