Shedding light on Christian persecution around the world.

In the Faisalabad District of Pakistan, Muslim families on their way to and from mosque routinely pass by the home of Skeena Bibbi, an elderly Christian woman who hosted weekly prayer meetings in her home until she was forced to flee the area with her family last month.

Skeena BibbiWhen some of Bibbi’s Muslim neighbors discovered that she was inviting Christians from around the community to weekly prayer, they incited one another to break in to the woman’s home on July 28th and harass the believers who had gathered for the meeting.  The next day, they returned to Bibbi’s home when all of her family members were away at work and she was left alone. Arriving at her door armed with sticks and guns, the Muslim attackers mercilessly beat Bibi – severely injuring her head and arm.

When the Muslims finished beating the elderly woman, they left her and traveled to her son’s workplace. After luring him outside, they beat the young man with rods. His injuries to his head and ribs can be seen in the picture at right. Bibbi's Son

When the family attempted to submit a complaint to the police, their Muslim neighbors intervened and forcefully told the family to make peace with their attackers. In Pakistan, it is very common for Christian victims to be forced into accepting reconciliation when they decide to take their case to the police.

Bibbi and her family have now abandoned their home and fled their community due to continued pressure from their Muslim neighbors and fear of another attack. Please keep this family in your prayers.

    That’s exactly what we should do to the muslims in America before they do it to us because they do not want to be our friends. They hate the U.S., THEY WANT TO TAKE OUR COUNTRY AND FORCE US TO BE muslims. They can’t stand the fact that we are the strongest and most powerful nation. They might as well give it up,cause  they do not believe in Jesus Christ and HE is not going to let them win. Thank u JESUS.

       If u do believe in Jesus, u won’t do the same thing like the muslims do. remember that Jesus taught us to forgive n love our enemies…..

      Maggie: As a believer in Christ we should not do the same.
      Doing so is not being an ambassador for Christ (we are ambassadors 2 Corinthians 5:20). We know that we will be persecuted, Jesus even tells us so (Matthew 10:16-33).
      When persecuted we continue to give more of ourselves to the ones that
      persecute us (Matthew 5:38-42) and we rejoice in our suffering (Matthew 5:12).
      In 1 Corinthians 4:12-13 we see that we are to do the opposite of
      what you propose: “when reviled, we bless; when persecuted, we endure; when
      slandered, we entreat.” Does this mean that we cannot do anything? By all means
      no. Raise awareness and understand that those that persecute us need the
      gospel. You can actively pray for those that persecute believers around the
      world pray for their salvation and pray for God to continue to give strength to his children and that He would be glorified we are told to do so (Luke 6:28; 1 Thes 5:17).

      Their is no love of Christ in your conversation. Love them as Jesus would. It’s by your testimony of Jesus alive in you, that’s what will win. Not Revenge. but Relationship! —- Garry —-

    This is not a news article BTW.  You can profess your rights with one hand, and deny freedoms of people that don’t agree, with the other.

  5. James P says:

    These Muslims believe that they will be blessed because of beaten Khafirs. So, there is nothing wrong! It happened in Badre, Ohud and other wars. So, brothers those who you are born in a Muslim country you have to be prepared one or other way to get it any time.

  6. Afzaljohn says:
