(World Watch Monitor) — Pakistan has ordered a South Korean man to leave the country, accusing him of involvement in “illegal preaching activities” after two of his students at an Urdu-language school were abducted and killed by the Islamic State group, which claimed they had been secretly preaching Christianity.
“Investigations have revealed that [Juan Won-seo] went to Pakistan on a business visa, set up an Urdu academy in Quetta and got involved in illegal preaching activities,” Pakistan’s interior minister told UCAN on June 19. “We have revoked his visa and asked him to leave the country.”
A South Korean official had previously denied the claim, telling the Hindustan Times on June 14 that “nothing has so far been found to verify the suspicion that they were involved with a Korean missionary group.”
