Stop Banning House Churches in Pakistan | Sign the Petition

In the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, It is incessantly happening that Christians can offer Sunday Prayers/Worship Services in Church Buildings (Sanctuaries) only, not in Houses or rented buildings.
Six (6) churches closed in Abbottabad last several days and several churches closed in Bahawalpur last year. The restriction is increasing each day in newly built or unregistered churches.

According to the 20th article of the constitution of Pakistan;
Freedom to profess religion and to manage religious institutions. — Subject to law, public order and morality-

(a) Every citizen shall have the right to profess, practice and propagate his religion; and
(b) Every religious denomination and every sect thereof shall have the right to establish, maintain and manage its religious institutions.

National Ecumenical Council Pakistan demands to the government of Pakistan;

  • Protection of our religious rights to worship
  • Allowing house churches
  • The smooth registration process for churches.
