Our vision is to create a network of Pakistanis united in Christ, focused on better quality of life, fellowship and religious freedom for Christians in Pakistan and the UK.
A Christian convert from Hinduism and his Hindu co-worker were arrested in Lahore for allegedly burning a Koran and a chart of Koranic verses.
Baghdadi Police Inspector Amir Ghauri has informed media that the suspect Javed Masih has confessed to the crime. However the defence lawyer for Mr Masih has alleged the confession was brough out under duress. Moreover they have queried the retention of Mr Lal for questioning concerned that he is being pressurized to implicate Mr Masih.
Defence Lawyers have also highlighted a lack of credible witness who saw the incident and the motive for the burning. Moreover the two Imams who arrived at the scene within two minutes had no particular reason to be there, suggesting contrivance.
The incident is sure to result in a long sentence for Mr Masih and the BPCA calls for Christians to pray for this innocent victim.
Wilson Chowdhry Chairman of the BPCA said;
"Incidents like these inevitably lead to incarceration of innocent victims for no reason, other than, their particular faith adherence."
He added; "This is a shameless act of deceit and intolerance something must be done to curb the impunity, that perpetrators of such devious acts enjoy. Without measures to protect the innocent minorities living there, Pakistan simply falls way short of international equality conventions."
