KARACHI, PAKISTAN (Worthy News)-- Eleven Christian staff nurses at the Civil Hospital in Karachi were allegedly poisoned as punishment for drinking tea in their hostel rooms during the daylight hours of Islam's Ramadan fast.

Three of the nurses were rushed to the hospital's ICU while the remaining eight were treated at its emergency ward.

The Pakistani Post reported that an FIR was registered against persons unknown at the Aram Bagh Police Station in Karachi, but as of press time, no one has been arrested.

According to the Ramadan Ordinance of the Provincial Sindh Government, although eating in public places is prohibited during Ramadan, non-Muslim minorities can still dine indoors.

After Pakistan's independence, restaurants where patrons were free to dine and smoke during Ramadan simply had to hang curtains over their windows, but a total ban on public dining was enacted during the Islamization of Zia-ul-Haq's regime.

  1. For I can testify about them that they are zealous for God, but their zeal is not based on knowledge.

    An expert in the law, tested Jesus with this question: "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”

    Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
