In Bahawalpur which is a major city in the Southern Punjab province of Pakistan, The district administration have issued orders that Christian can offer Sunday Prayers/Worship Services in Church Buildings (Sanctuaries) only, not in Houses. 

The permissions to build new Churches in Pakistan are not granted if the site is within 200 meters from any Mosque or 100 meter away from Muslim residential area. It is also undertaken by new Church builder missions that they will not use loudspeakers during prayers and their services timing will not tally with Muslim prayers in Mosques in that locality. The hoisting of Cross on gates of new Church buildings also need special permission and undertaking of missions. (Pakistan Christian Post Oct 20, 2016)

We urge Prime Minister of Pakistan Mr. Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, Chief Minister of Punjab Mian Shahbaz Sharif and Interior Minister of Pakistan to take immediate notice of banning House Churches in city of Bahawalpur because it is against religious freedom and guarantees provided to religious minorities in constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan.
