Rabwah students celebrate Christmas with Christian neighbors

Christian kids in the small Pakistani town of Chenab Nagar got a pleasant surprise when on Christmas morning their Muslim neighbors showed up at their doors with treats.

The group of Ahmadi Muslim students from the Nasir Higher Secondary school started their Monday morning with kids of the small Christian community adjacent to the town’s Bethlehem Catholic Church. The students who were led by their teachers and principal also went door to door in the parish and shared Christmas treats with Christian kids.

The principal of Nasir Higher Secondary school, Mujahid Ahmad said:

We came here today to show our support for the local Christian community, the children went door to door to share treats with their Christian neighbors. We want to teach the kids that humanity is the greatest religion, and we should take part in each other’s happiness and celebrations so that love and affection increases between us.
