PAKISTAN: Today June 3, 2016, when the question was being raised “Why Doses Christian Persecution Get Worse in Pakistan”, Sardar Mushtaq Gill, human rights defender expressed with sorrow that in his views which were established after going through a long time practically handing and assisting victims of the of blasphemy laws, mob violence and forced marriages and forced conversion to Islam, the weak defense is the main reason of getting worse Christian Persecution in Pakistan?
In Pakistan where International Christian organizations and Churches claim to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars through different religious and secular projects to the individual cases despite of all those contributions of International Christian organizations and Churches for the growth of the Pakistani Church and for the defense of the persecuted, the precious lives of Christians were sacrificed, churches are regularly being bombed, Christians are being brutally killed, and blasphemy laws have been misused to snatch the religious freedom of Christians, more over the unending phenomena of forced conversion to Islam and forced marriages of Christian girls is shockingly continue and we are unable to make grow the Church and to defend the victim in true sense.
In this way the defense of the victims always remain on weak footing which may result in long term sufferings for them. Just for reference look at what has resulted in the case of Asia Bibi since her arrest. Her case was not properly handled at earliest stage hence resulted in weak defense which became the reason of dismissal of her appeal from Lahore High Court.
Undoubtedly the situation of Christian persecution in Pakistan has not only been got worse but also has always been appalled to be focused, it is not a fact that it has been only recorded well in recent years rather it actual gets worse and worse day by day because of weak defense against the situation in result the Church and the human rights defenders are not free to carry their legitimate religious and human rights activities in Pakistan. In fact, things are so crucial for Pakistani Christian community that they are leaving the country to avoid religious violence and to seek save heaven for their children that’s why some Christian leaders are making warn that Christians may very soon become extinct in Pakistan as is happening in other neighboring Islamic countries.
In reality, we take to these victims the bread of life only to find they are not in danger of hunger. We offer them the water of life only to discover they are not feeling thirst. We shelter them thinking it is not their need. We give them assistance only to find it is not necessary for them. We totally ignore to give them assistance in the rescue mission thinking their lives are not in danger.
