Another Christian killed in Police custody

Farman Masih received by his family still in police handcuffs despite him being in no state to cause harm to anyone! Another Christian man has been killed whilst in Police custody in an incident that is remarkably similar to previous ones. This victim is the first on record to not have had a blasphemy charge laid against him, he was accused of theft of a battery. Farman Masih a 25 year old Christian man was found dead in a stream on Saturday 18th April 2015, after a bungled police arrest apparently allowed him to plunge to his death whilst trying to escape.  Or so say Pakistani mainstream media. Reports suggest that Mr Masih was arrested at his home by the As...

Sherish and Farzana show significant signs of recovery from gang-rape ordeal.

Maths is fun for formerly illiterate sisters Sherish and Farzana The number of recent attacks on Christians in Pakistan has diverted us from reporting on Sherish (14 years) and Farzana (16 years), the two sisters whom we have taken into our safe custody, after a terrible 14 hour gang rape ordeal. The girls were abducted at gun point while using a field as a toilet. (click here) The two sisters were suffering great trauma after their ordeal, which was compounded by threats from other young men of a repeat attack, claiming it was what Christians deserved. We installed a washroom facility in their home as they were too scared and traumatis...

Nouman Masih (RIP)

Nouman Masih only 15 years of age (RIP) Another Pakistani Christian Martyr   I am so saddened to have to share some heartbreaking news. Nouman Masih the 15 year old boy who was targeted in a vicious attack by Muslims in Pakistan who were offended by his adherence to the Christian faith, died this morning. The hospital he was being treated in did not have a special burns unit, and we were unable to get him moved to another hospital due to the frail condition he was in.

Pakistani Christian refugees shackled and beaten - no end to their misery!

Image of shackled Pak-Christian asylum seekers provided by Pastor Patrick Sarooj  Those relatively few Pakistani Christians who manage to escape to other countries are often not out of danger or trouble.  Even in the UK, we have had at least one instance of a refugee facing physical attacks and false charges typical of Pakistan within a couple of weeks of coming out of the asylum process and into the council housing program of a major Midland city, and abuse within the asylum process is rife, particularly at the detention centres.  However, Pakistani Christians who flee to other countries often have it much, much worse.  Thailand is a case i...
