Defend Dying Christians in Pakistan

137,815

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

Our Pakistan office successfully represented Pastor Karma Patras who was falsely accused of blasphemy after he gave a sermon at a memorial service preaching about the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. A Muslim attending the service mistook Pastor Patras’ words and accused him of blasphemy against Islam. Pastor Patras was arrested on October 15, 2012 under section 295-A of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) that punishes “deliberate and malicious acts intended to outrage religious feelings of any class by insulting its religion or religious beliefs” with up to ten years in prison. On February 21, 2013, our attorneys secured bail for Pastor Patras. In June 2013, our attorneys filed an application of acquittal for lack of evidence. The court accepted our application and acquitted Pastor Patras on June 14, 2013.

You can help save Karma Patras
