Christian Citizens in an Islamic State: The Pakistan Experience

Couverture
Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2007 - 133 pages
This book covers new ground in exploring the various factors that govern the relations between Muslims and Christians in Pakistan, a nation state which has been politically unstable in the past, and where the imposition of Islamic law has been controversial and problematic for religious minorities. Theodore Gabriel clarifies the history of Christian-Muslim relations in the region, explores the rise of Islamic militancy, and draws on personal interviews to determine the mind set of both Christians and Muslims in Pakistan today.
