10/08/2020 Washington, D.C. (International Christian Concern) – Fundamentalist Muslims falsely accused John Masih of committing blasphemy against Islam in 2011, a serious crime in Pakistan, punishable by death. He waited in prison for two years until the court finally acquitted him, but society gave his final verdict as guilty. It is a stigma he can never outlive.
For seven years John lived under a veil of shame, cut off from society. His extraordinary carpentry talent was famous in his town, now because of the accusation, his business died and his family suffered.
In order to raise John and his family above the perpetual cycle of suffering, International Christian Concern (ICC) gave financial assistance to help John rebuild his small carpentry business. He received all the necessary equipment, wood, tools, and shop rent to develop the implementation.
Blasphemy destroys lives and reputations, leaving the victim isolated. Because ICC was able to partner with John, his story changed.
