05/18/2011 Pakistan  (ANS)-Two more shocking cases have surfaced in Pakistan where Christians were badly treated by Muslims.

The first concerned two Christian women working at a Lahore, Pakistan, hospital, who were allegedly “manhandled” by a leader at the Fatima Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, April 19, 2011.

A source close to the situation said that Nusrat Bibi and Muneeran Bibi, who are both married female sanitary workers at the hospital were “brutally thrashed” and “unlawfully detained for several hours,” after being assaulted by a Muslim officer at the medical facility.

Now on April 21, 2011, a First Information Report (FIR) was lodged against the man at the Ichchra Police Station, Lahore.

According to information obtained by ANS, the man allegedly snatched a cellphone from Nusrat Bibi and money from Muneeran Bibi.

Our source said that when the women resisted, he began beating Muneeran Bibi by punching and slapping her on the face and kicking on her legs. Then Nusrat Bibi was slapped and beaten with a wooden stick which the alleged attacker had pulled out from a stand placed in his room. He also tore up her shirt when she raised an objection to their physical search.

“They were kept in illegal detention for about 9 hours,” said the source.

The Community Development Initiative (CDI), an affiliate of European Center for Law and Justice (ECLJ) is now probing the case.

In another disturbing case, this one in Jalal Pur Jattan, a town located in the Gujrat District, Punjab, Pakistan, the Christian Communication Network Pakistan (CCNP) told ANS that “a gang of Muslim men, on the behest of a former member of the Punjab Provincial Assembly, “invaded two Christian houses” in the city. The incident was said to have taken place on Friday, May 13, 2011.

Adnan Sher, an activist of CCNP, said that a Christian man, Sharif Gull, was abducted at gunpoint by the Muslim “hoodlums.”

Adnan Sher then alleged that the Muslim mob also attacked at the house of another Christian man, Idrees Asif. He added that the alleged culprits, armed with clubs, thrashed the men and women of Asif’s family and ripped off the cloths of the Christian women and made publicly nude.

Another authentic source said a case against the Muslim politician and his accomplices was registered at the Jalal Pur Jattan Police Station.

At press time, the former Muslim political leader has filed a plea in the local court of Gujarat to secure an interim pre-arrest bail.

A local daily newspaper also accused the local Gujrat Police of allegedly favoring Muslim former provincial legislator of Punjab, and his unknown accomplices.
