Christian persecution in Pakistan

Postby Indaswamp » Tue Aug 27, 2013 9:19 am

More and more people join the crowd as they push me towards the home of the village headman. I recognize the house — it’s the only one that has a garden with grass growing in it. They throw me to the ground. The village imam speaks to me: “I’ve been told you’ve insulted our Prophet. You know what happens to anyone who attacks the holy Prophet Mohammed. You can redeem yourself only by conversion or death.”

“I haven’t done anything! Please! I beg you! I’ve done nothing wrong!”

The qari with his long, well-combed beard, turns to Musarat and the three women who were there on the day of the falsa harvest.

“Did she speak ill of Muslims and our holy Prophet Mohammed?”

“Yes, she insulted them,” replies Musarat, and the others join in:

“It’s true, she insulted our religion.”

“If you don’t want to die,” says the young mullah, “you must convert to Islam. Are you willing to redeem yourself by becoming a good Muslim?”

Sobbing, I reply:

“No, I don’t want to change my religion. But please believe me, I didn’t do what these women say, I didn’t insult your religion. Please have mercy on me.”

I put my hands together and plead with him. But he is unmoved.

“You’re lying! Everyone says you committed this blasphemy and that’s proof enough. Christians must comply with the law of Pakistan, which forbids any derogatory remarks about the holy Prophet. Since you won’t convert and the Prophet cannot defend himself, we shall avenge him.”

He turns on his heel and the angry crowd falls on me. I’m beaten with sticks and spat at. I think I’m going to die. Then they ask me again:

“Will you convert to a religion worthy of the name?”

“No, please, I’m a Christian, but I beg you . . . ”

And they go on beating me with the same fury as before.

I was barely conscious and could hardly feel the pain of my wounds by the time the police arrived. Two policemen threw me in their van, to cheers from the angry crowd, and a few minutes later I was in the police station in Nankana Sahib.

In the police chief’s office they sat me down on a bench. I asked for water and compresses for the wounds on my legs, which were streaming with blood. A young policeman threw me an old dishcloth and spat out at me:

“Here, and don’t get it everywhere.”

One of my arms really hurt and I thought it might be broken. Just then I saw the qari come in with Musarat and her gang. With me sitting there they told the police chief that I insulted the Prophet Mohammed. From outside the police station I could hear shouts:

“Death to the Christian!”

After writing up the report the policeman turned and called to me in a nasty voice:

“So what have you got to say for yourself?”

“I’m innocent! It’s not true! I didn’t insult the Prophet!”

Immediately after I’d protested my innocence I was manhandled into the police van and driven away. During the journey I passed out from pain and only came back to myself as we were arriving at Sheikhupura prison, where I was thrown into a cell.

Since that day I haven’t left prison.

And this is how they spread the religion of peace- convert or die. After a good beating at the hands of a "holy man." :mad:

And the left in this country continues to contort itself to be certain they do not offend such a awesome religion. :no:

I love how liberals are so supportive of Muslims while ignoring the attocities they commit in the name of God ( Allah). Poetic justice would be seeing them actually take over America. Immediately followed by brutalizing all the liberals and homosexuals who so ardently supported them.

This poor woman has incredible courage though to not simply give in to the brutality and renounce her Christian belief to these pieces of human debris. :thumbsup: God Bless her.

If she dies a Christian, she goes to heaven where God accepts here into his loving arms for all eternity. If she dies a Muslim and goes to heaven, she becomes a retread virgin and is raped for all eternity by some muslim nut job who blew himself up.

Doesn't seem like a hard choice to make when you think about it.

The biggest lies ever told (after the first 2) are: islam is a religion of peace & we are not at war with islam.

Can't remember where I saw it, but there are 1.6 billion muslims. If the "extremists" are only 1/10%, that's still 1.6 MILLION "terrorists", bigger than our entire military by about a factor of 2. So please, tell me again how it's just a few "bad apples", and not islam itself which is the problem.

Not one liberal will chime in until challenged when the truth is right before their eyes.

The problem with being a liberal is that eventually what you want to believe is simply proven to not be true. Happens every time you put emotions before logic and intelligence.

The real world makes being a liberal a tough thing to do every now and then. :lol3:
