Pakistani Christian Girl Raped and Tortured for Eleven Days

A Pakistani Christian girl forced to convert to Islam and raped

ICC Note:

A fourteen year old Christian Pakistani girl was kidnapped, forced to convert to Islam, raped and tortured. When her father reported her missing, the police wouldn't help him. Finally, he recovered her himself, but not before the local mosque announced that she was now a Muslim and could not live as a Christian without facing dire consequences. The eight Christian families in the village were also threatened that they needed to leave immediately and that their homes would be burned.

12/3/2012 Pakistan (Pakistan Christian Post)-On 11th November, 2012, she went to the fields to pick cotton flowers from the fields. The two culprits, Mohammad Javed and Mohammad Mumtaz who are the influential persons of their area, abducted her from the fields and took her to some unknown place. They took thumb impressions of Asiya Masih on different papers and forcibly converted her to Islam. They also raped her and tortured her for 11 days.

When Francis Masih came to know that Mohammad Javed and Mohammad Mumtaz had abducted his daughter, he made a complaint in the local police station but the police did not cooperate with him. Afterwards Javed and Mumtaz called Francis Masih and threatened him that if would contact the police, they would kill Asiya Masih. They also proposed Francis that if he wants his daughter back, then he would have to give them a written document that he would not take any police action.

 

Afterwards with the help of WVIP and Chaudhry Riaz Bashir, who is an influential Christian businessman, Francis Masih got his daughter back on the 22nd of November. But the Paish Imam of the local mosque has announced yesterday that as Asiya Masih was converted to Islam, she cannot live as a Christian again, if she did not follow the Religious customs of Islam, She and her family will face the consequences. He also announced that all eight Christian families of the village should be banished and their houses should be burnt.
