03/05/2019 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – A young Christian man named Amir was killed by policemen in northern Pakistan. While the police claimed that the incident occurred after he was found selling alcohol, reports indicate a more troubling explanation. A local Muslim group was reportedly pressuring Amir to convert to Islam, but he refused. Eventually, the police raided Amir’s home and attacked him. When the family attempted to register a case against the policemen, the Muslim group threatened to set their house on fire if the family didn’t withdraw the complaint.
In order to support Amir’s family following their loss, ICC provided an auto-rickshaw for his mother and siblings to earn an income. Amir’s mother expressed, “I am thankful to ICC for giving us an auto-rickshaw for Amir so that we could earn dignified bread and butter. We appreciate their love of solidarity and thoughtfulness. We were worried for being jobless…Thank you ICC.”
