In many public schools in Pakistan, most of the students are Muslim. Christians in these schools are often forced to eat at separate tables. At one school, a Muslim teacher forced a Christian girl to stand in the hot sun until she fainted. The girl was being punished for wearing a cross necklace to school.
Christian parents can send their children to private Christian schools if they want to. But Christians who are poor are not able to pay for private schools.
Sobia, a teenager in Pakistan, told the story below to friends from The Voice of the Martyrs.
