We are representing a Christian family against a Pakistani corporation that launched a campaign of persecution against its Christian employees. The Christian brothers, Asher and Robin, former employees of corporation were forced to resign at gunpoint after new Muslim management took over.
Asher started working for the company as a ticket collector in 1999. By 2010, he was an operations manager. New Muslim management, however, decided to remove all high-ranking Christian employees. In July 2010, Khurram Mirza (a general manager) and Tahir Awan (the senior accounts manager) approached Asher and Robin Paras (also a Christian employee) and asked them to resign.
When both men refused, the Muslim men drew their weapons and forced the Christian men to put their signatures on blank papers. After Asher left the office, four men attacked him and shot him in the right thigh. Asher was rushed to the hospital. Two days later, Asher filed a police report against his attackers. Incredibly, the Muslim defendants argued that Asher shot himself to falsely accuse them and filed for dismissal of the case. Our attorneys opposed the dismissal and challenged their false assertions. In a victory for the rule of law, the court refused to dismiss the case, and it is currently pending.
