Christian women and girls face often abuse in Pakistan, according to roghts activists.

ISLAMABAD, PAKISTAN (BosNewsLife)– A Muslim leader has ordered Christian families to burn their homes and leave a village in Pakistan’s Punjab province after a villager freed his abducted underage daughter who was “raped and forced to convert to Islam”, negotiators told BosNewsLife Friday, November 30.

“Today [our representatives] are holding a meeting with Muslim clerics in Chack No- 198/EB of Vehari District to help the eight Christian families and [the rescued Christian girl] Aisya Masih,” said Farrukh H. Saif, the executive director of Pakistan-based advocacy group World Vision In Progress (WVIP).

The talks began after the ‘Paish Imam’ of the local mosque warned announced that Aisya Masih “cannot live as a Christian” because she “was converted to Islam.”

He allegedly threatened Aisya and her family that they will face unspecified “consequences” if the girl doesn’t follow the religious traditions of Islam.

The imam “also announced that all eight Christian families of the village should be banished and their houses should be burnt,” said Saif.


The tensions began November 11 when Aisya was kidnapped while helping her impoverished parents with the harvest of cut flowers from the area’s fields, according to local Christians with close knowledge about the case.

Two suspects, unidentified publicly as influential Muslims Mohammad Javed and Mohammad Mumtaz, allegedly brought the girl to a nearby location where they raped and tortured her for 11 days.

They forced Aisya to become a Muslim by putting her thumb prints on different documents to prove she had been converted to Islam, according to WVIP investigators.

Her father Francis Masih asked local police to intervene, but they refused to rescue the girl, Saif told BosNewsLife.

The kidnappers later told her father that “they would kill Aisya Masih if he would contact the police,” Saif added.


She was eventually freed November 22 with support from WVIP and an influential Christian businessman, he said.

There was no immediate known comment from local police and it remained unclear Friday, November 30, when and if the Christians, including Aisya and her family, would be expelled.

This isn’t an isolated incident. Christian girls and women have been kidnapped, raped and forced to convert to Islam in several parts of Pakistan, rights investigators claim.

There has been international pressure on Pakistan’s government to improve the plight of Christians in the country, where several believers are also held behind bars on what their supporters call “trumped-up” charges of blasphemy against Islam.


  1. As long as the Muslim population remains around or under 2% in any given country, they will be for the most part be regarded as a peace-loving minority, and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the case in:
    United States — Muslim 0.6%
    Australia — Muslim 1.5%
    Canada — Muslim 1.9%
    China — Muslim 1.8%
    Italy — Muslim 1.5%
    Norway — Muslim 1.8%
    At 2% to 5%, they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, often with major recruiting from the jails and
    among street gangs. This is happening in:
    Denmark — Muslim 2%
    Germany — Muslim 3.7%
    United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
    Spain — Muslim 4%
    Thailand — Muslim 4.6%
    From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to
    their percentage of the population. For example, they will push for the
    introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby
    securing food preparation jobs for Muslims.
    They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature halal on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply.
    This is occurring in:
    France — Muslim 8%
    Philippines — Muslim 5%
    Sweden — Muslim 5%
    Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
    The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
    Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%
    At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow
    them to rule themselves (within their ghettos) under Sharia, the Islamic
    Law. The ultimate goal of Islamists is to establish Sharia law over the
    entire world.
    When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase
    lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions. In Paris ,
    we are already seeing car-burnings.
    Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and
    threats, such as in Amsterdam , with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and
    films about Islam. Such tensions are seen daily, particularly in Muslim
    sections, in:
    Guyana — Muslim 10%
    India — Muslim 13.4%
    Israel — Muslim 16%
    Kenya — Muslim 10%
    Russia — Muslim 15%
    After reaching 20% , nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues, such as in:
    Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%
    At 40% , nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare, such as in:
    Bosnia — Muslim 40%
    Chad — Muslim 53.1%
    Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%
    From 60% , nations experience unfettered persecution of non-believers
    of all other religions (including non-conforming Muslims), sporadic
    ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon, and Jizya,
    the tax placed on infidels, such as in:
    Albania — Muslim 70%
    Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
    Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
    Sudan — Muslim 70%*
    After 80% , expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out the infidels, and move toward 100% Muslim, such as has been experienced and in some ways is on-going in:
    Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
    Egypt — Muslim 90%
    Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
    Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
    Iran — Muslim 98%
    Iraq — Muslim 97%
    Jordan — Muslim 92%
    Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
    Pakistan — Muslim 97%
    Palestine — Muslim 99%
    Syria — Muslim 90%
    Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
    Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
    United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%
    100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrasses are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word, such as in:
    Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
    Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
    Somalia — Muslim 100%
    Yemen — Muslim 100%
    Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the
    most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood
    lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.
