01/25/2022 Pakistan (International Christian Concern) – Earlier this month, a 16-year-old Christian girl was kidnapped near her college in Okara by a Muslim man. She was drugged and then driven to Faisalabad in southwest Lahore, the provincial capital of Punjab in Pakistan. There, she was raped several times. The next morning, she was found by her mother, Grace, as she was lying unconscious on the street near her home.
Grace stated in the first information report that her daughter went to the college in the morning and was supposed to be picked up by her brother that afternoon. When her brother showed up, he was informed that she was already gone.
“The unexpected situation made my son worried as this had never happened before.”
According to a local Pastor, the perpetrator harassed her for several months. She refused his advances, at which point he escalated his harassment into sexual assault. No arrest has been made. The harrowing story reveals the abuse of Christians in Pakistan and how justice is often elusive for the persecuted.
