Saturday 1 August 2009, by Farooq Tariq

Shabir Ahmad, a Labour Party leader at Gojra was able to save the lives of several Christians today with the help of LPP activists when fundamentalists tried to burn the homes of Christians.

Six were burnt alive in one of the worst sectarian clashes in the region. The brave LPP activists reached the area under fire and fought the fundamentalists who were trying to burn more home.
