Karachi: An uneasy coexistence: Christians & Muslims in Karachi’s Michael Town, 16 July, 2014
The irony could not be more cruel. The well-known symbol of a kite accompanying the slogan “aqliyati umoor” (minority affairs) is emblazoned on the walls of Michael Town, but its small Christian community, a little over 2,000 people, is reminded every day of how little their lives, their property, their very right to exist, are worth to the political forces that control Karachi. It was never easy for them in this low-income locality in Korangi, where most of the 300 houses with Christian residents are located in eight narrow, adjacent lanes. Poverty and prejudice combined to keep them on the margins of Pakistani society. While the Muslims got water in the pipelines, their enclave did not, so they had to buy water from tankers. The Christian residents, unlike the Muslims, could not hold religious gatherings in the communal ground, out of fear of causing offence to the residents of the imposing madressah overlooking the site. Shops owned by the Christians were not patronised by the Muslims. “We’ve always lived separate lives,” said Naseem Gul, 22, who belongs to the minority faith.
