Defend Dying Christians in Pakistan

139,433

Signatures //

Pakistan is one of the most pernicious persecutors of Christians ever.

Pakistani Christians are tortured, raped, and burned alive. Some – like Christian mother of five Asia Bibi – are falsely accused of blasphemy and sentenced to execution by hanging because of their faith.

Others face mob violence and governmental abuse and injustice.

Despite the increasing extremism, the Pakistani government persistently fails to protect Christians from violence or bring its perpetrators to justice. Even worse the government of Pakistan itself is one of the world’s worst jihadist persecutors of Christians. Yet it receives the most U.S. foreign aid of any nation.

This deadly barbarism – this monumental injustice – must end.

We’ve mobilized our offices on the ground in Pakistan, at the U.N., and on Capitol Hill to aggressively fight back. We are directly defending numerous Christians in Pakistani courts.

Save the lives of persecuted Christians before it’s too late. Take action with us.

Story

Masih’s ordeal began on July 1, 2009, when he was cleaning his bookstore. After gathering useless papers and old books, he prepared to burn them, a common method of disposing of trash in the Third World. One of the books appeared to be an old textbook on the Arabic language. Fearing he might dispose it of improperly, Masih consulted his Muslim neighbor, Hajji Liaquat Ali, who owns a building materials business adjacent to Masih’s bookstore. Ali told Masih to dispose of the book by burning it. Knowing that Ali was a Muslim who could determine if it was an Islamic religious book, Masih followed his instructions, and put the book in the fire. Just as the book caught fire, Ali drew it out of the burning pile and proclaimed that a Christian had set the Koran on fire.

Mosque loudspeakers announced that a Christian had burned the Koran, and a large and angry Muslim mob formed. The mob dragged Masih and his brother, Naveed Danish, out of their home and began beating them. The mob ruthlessly beat the brothers, and doused them with kerosene oil to set them on fire when the police intervened and arrested Masih, who was later sentenced to life in prison and fined 100,000 rupees.

In January 2010, our attorneys filed an appeal in the Lahore High Court to challenge the Session Courts decision. The appeal is still pending.
