Youhanabad is an area in Lahore, Pakistan. It is the largest majority Christian area in the city. A 2006 report put the number of inhabitants at 200,000,[1] while it was reported by DAWN in 2015 that the area was home to at least 100,000 Christians.

Two churches were attacked on 15 March 2015, a Sunday, by suicide bombers. At least 15 people, including two policemen, were killed and 78 injured, 30 of them critically. The militant Islamist group Jamaat-ul-Ahrar said they were behind the attacks. A mob also killed two who they suspected were involved.[2]
