Now, this movement of oppression has spread throughout hospitals in Pakistan. In Lahore, Muslim nurses and medical staff have taken over the chapel of a mental hospital. Nehemiah from FMI says, “They [are keeping] Christian staff from coming to this chapel anymore. They’ve taken over this chapel, and they started offering their Muslim prayers there. They have threatened these Christian staff, nurses, janitors, and paramedical staff, telling them to leave their jobs or embrace Islam.”

The mental hospital has a chapel because the British constructed the building in the 1800s. Today, Christian hospital staff still use it to meet and worship.
