A teenage Christian was raped by a Muslim man only metres away from her home. After evidence stacked up against him the Muslim rapist gave himself
up to police realizing he could not escape justice.
16-year-old Sonia a student at Government High School in Sadar, was attacked on her way back from a Salvation Army church meeting. Sonia and two sisters from the local community were part of the worship team at her church and were required to go on regular practice sessions. As usual on 7th July 2016 the three girls walked to church - which was one hundred yards from their home, for their regular training. However on this trip the church was found locked so the three teenage girls decided to return home. Apparently Captain Jameel Inayat had gone to meet a parishioner in an emergency and returned 10 minutes late, sadly just missing the arrival of the girls.

On their return journey towards home the two sisters accompanying Sonia broke off and entered their home which arrived before Sonia's. Sonia had to travel a further 20m to her own home through some narrow twisting channels. In one of the alleyways only 3 metres from her home a Muslim man named Mohammed Iqrar Abbas (22 years) grabbed Sonia and dragged her into his home, which was located opposite her house.
Mr Abbas locked his door from inside after bundling Sonia inside and in her hysteria started screaming and shouting. Mr Abbas responded by clasping his large hands across her mouth nose restricting her breathing. At this point Sonia thought she was going to die and terror consumed her. She stopped the screaming in fear for her life and the man emboldened by her silence then proceeded to rape her, an ordeal she tells us she will never forget.
Sonia started screaming again and struggled as hard as she could but she was too frail to dent the force of the larger, bulkier and much stronger Muslim rapist. All the windows and doors to his home house were shut preventing the sound of her wailing from reaching those who might help. Very little sound was emitted into the street meaning nobody heard her violent and brutal attack. Moreover the attack took place at 10am when most homes were empty as the people in the community where at work.
After Mr Abbas had completed his sordid rape of the innocent Christian girl he released her from his home. Sonia rushed home and told her sister-in-law Sumeera what had happened. Summera immediately sent a message across to her mother Seema Bibi and father Nassir Masih, who were out working as labourers in a rice field. They quickly rushed home to comfort and counsel their daughter.
Copy of Police First Incident Report (FIR)
Sonia's uncle Fiaz Maish, who works at a brick kiln was called and he connected the family with a political candidate Chowdry Monam Zia Sandhu, a Muslim man who often helps the suffering Christian community. Together they went to the Police station and ensured that a First Incident Report (FIR) was registered against the rapist. The police also sent the family to have a medical examination for Sonia.
After a few hours the medical report arrived and supported the allegation of rape. The police acted upon this and for the next two days raided the home of Mr Abbas but failed to locate him. On 10th July 2016 Irfan Dogar the existing Member of National Assembly (MNA) for the local area, presented Mr Abbas to the police, explaining that Mr Abbas had contacted MNA Irfan Dogar and told of his looming arrest, to which Irfan suggested he gives himself up to Farooqabad Police Station via the ajniawala Chowky (small depot) near his home.
In a very bizarre situation Mr Abbas admitted his culpability in the crime of rape at the police station and was remanded for three days. At a magistrates court on 15th July 2016 Mr Abbas again admitted his guilt and he was immediately placed under judicial remand until a session court case will be heard to determine the length of his sentence.
Mr Abbas has been remanded under section 376 of the Pakistani Penal Code:
||Punishment for rape
