“Today,2 April,2014,one white collar unknown person came at Civil Court, Lahore and met me at our sitting place and he instructed me to be careful because there is apprehension that someone has plan to make attacked at you by someone and might be you will be get involved in some false criminal cases just due to your human rights work ,”told Gill.

Gill says that it is written in Psalm 118:6-The LORD is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?
Revelation 2:10-Don’t be afraid of what you are going to suffer. Look! The devil is going to throw some of you into prison so that you may be tested. For ten days you will undergo suffering. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the victor’s crown of life.
“I and my other staff members were threatened and attacked many times by some unknown persons due to our human rights work in Pakistan but we were not be afraid of such threats and attacks,we know that death is the result of the campaign which we have started against blasphemy law and in the support of persecuted Church,”told Gill.
“Now we are between Judas Iscariot and Roman soldiers who are in plotting to hang us on cross,”said Gill.”Life and career both are at stake,”added Gill.
Gill says , we believe in this Gospel Verse 1 John 3:17 -But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?
We have full believe in God Who saved Paul from Jews:Plot Uncovered; Paul Taken to Caesarea in the same way He must make stand someone for us to rescue us from the plots which are being made for us.As Paul’s nephew did.
Paul’s nephew, a young man probably in his early twenties, heard of this plot “ambush” .He reports it to Paul, who then sends him with his message up the chain of command through a centurion to the commander.
We are motivated by God,we have no fear of any loss even our lives but our voice for our brothers and sisters no one can make stopped to raise for them.We will not stop our human rights work because The Lord has commanded us to do this.We have heard His voice as Paul heard: Acts 23:11 The following night the Lord stood near Paul and said, “Take courage! As you have testified about me in Jerusalem, so you must also testify in Rome.”
Our efforts and struggle be continue for rule of law,religious liberty and freedom and campaign to repeal blasphemy law and all other discriminatory law in Pakistan.
