Nouman Masih (RIP)

Nouman Masih only 15 years of age (RIP) Another Pakistani Christian Martyr   I am so saddened to have to share some heartbreaking news. Nouman Masih the 15 year old boy who was targeted in a vicious attack by Muslims in Pakistan who were offended by his adherence to the Christian faith, died this morning. The hospital he was being treated in did not have a special burns unit, and we were unable to get him moved to another hospital due to the frail condition he was in. Nouman was brave throughout his pain and spoke of forgiveness for his attackers. He dies a martyr and will no doubt be with the Lord today. Please...

Pakistani Christian refugees shackled and beaten - no end to their misery!

Image of shackled Pak-Christian asylum seekers provided by Pastor Patrick Sarooj  Those relatively few Pakistani Christians who manage to escape to other countries are often not out of danger or trouble.  Even in the UK, we have had at least one instance of a refugee facing physical attacks and false charges typical of Pakistan within a couple of weeks of coming out of the asylum process and into the council housing program of a major Midland city, and abuse within the asylum process is rife, particularly at the detention centres.  However, Pakistani Christians who flee to other countries often have it much, much worse.  Thailand is a case i...

Sherish and Farzana Case Further Delayed

The case of Sherish and Farzana has already met with several delays, the most recent and alarming of these being due to the advocate for the case, Mushtaq Gill, having to rush to the bedside of his brother, Pervaiz Gill.  As we recently reported, Mr Gill was shot in a cowardly act of intimidation orchestrated by the accused Muhammad Azeem.  Azeem has continually demanded a compromise and for the matter to be settled out of court.  When his demands were not met, he carried out his threats of violence against both the family of Ilyas Masih, the father of the girls, by shooting at the family home, and now Mr Gill.

Gang Rape Case Trial Delayed, Sherish and Farzana's Ordeal Prolonged

Sherish and Farzana: happy, safe and beginning to heal. . In November 2014 the two sisters were the subject of a terrifying and horrific ordeal at the hands of three Muslim boys known to them from their village.  They were targeted by the boys in the early evening, while out using a nearby field as a toilet, and abducted at gunpoint.  The rapists struck because the girls are Christians, despised and deemed easy targets for abuse.  Both their faith and poverty, which meant a total lack of safe facilities, rendered them extremely vulnerable to this kind of attack.   The BPCA has been supporting the family throughout by providing legal counsel, ...
