Controversy surrounds the death of a Presbyterian Church official who was found bleeding with a lacerated neck at his residence this week.

“#BREAKING Mr. Edwin (Aamir) Gill, director of Shalom Christian Centre in Jhelum city of Pakistan, gunned down,” stated Weekly Izhaq News, a Lahore-based online newspaper.

Human rights activists shared the story overnight on their social media pages demanding the arrest of his killers. “Stop massacre in the name of religious extremism. This country has become a hell for those speaking of peace and solidarity,” stated theologian Dil Nawaz on his Facebook page.

Aamir, 56, died on Oct. 13 at Civil Hospital of Jhelum in the north of Punjab province. The father of three had served for 26 years as the director of Shalom Christian Center.
