Pakistani Christian Woman Freed After Kidnap, Rape, Forced-Conversion

'War Booty': Pakistani Christian woman Shaheen Bibi, pictured with her father Manna Masih

Chained to a tree by Muslim supremacists. Where? Where else? More Interfaith Dialogue from the Pakistani branch of the Religion of Peace:

A Pakistani Christian woman and mother of seven, who last August was kidnapped, raped, sold into marriage and threatened with death if she did not convert to Islam was freed this week.

After she refused to convert and accept the marriage, human traffickers had threatened to kill Shaheen Bibi, 40, and throw her body into the Sindh River if her father, Manna Masih, did not pay a ransom of 100,000 rupees (US$1,170) by Saturday (March 5), the released woman told Compass.

Drugged into unconsciousness, Shaheen Bibi said that when she awoke in Sadiqabad, her captors told her she had been sold and given in marriage.

“I asked them who they were,” she said. “They said that they were Muslims, to which I told them that I was a married Christian woman with seven children, so it was impossible for me to marry someone, especially a Muslim.”

Giving her a prayer rug (musalla), her captors – Ahmed Baksh, Muhammad Amin and Jaam Ijaz – tried to force her to convert to Islam and told her to recite a Muslim prayer, she said.

“I took the musalla but prayed to Jesus Christ for help,” she said. “They realized that I should be returned to my family.”

A member of St. Joseph Catholic Church in Lahore, Shaheen Bibi said she was kidnapped in August 2010 after she met a woman named Parveen on a bus on her way to work. She said Parveen learned where she worked and later showed up there in a car with two men identified as Muhammad Zulfiqar and Shah. They offered her a job at double her salary and took her to nearby Thokar Niaz Baig.

There she was given tea with some drug in it, and she began to fall unconscious as the two men raped her, she said. Shaheen Bibi was unconscious when they put her in a vehicle, and they gave her sedation injections whenever she regained her senses, she said.

When she awoke in Sadiqabad, Baksh, Amin and Ijaz informed her that she had been sold into marriage with Baksh. They showed her legal documents in which she was given a Muslim name, Sughran Bibi daughter of Siddiq Ali. After Baksh had twice raped her, she said, his mother interjected that she was a “persistent Christian” and that therefore he should stay away from her.

Shaheen Bibi, separated from an abusive husband who had left her for another woman, said that after Baksh’s mother intervened, her captors stopped hurting her but kept her in chains.

Release

Her father, Masih, asked police to take action, but they did nothing as her captors had taken her to a remote area between the cities of Rahim Yar Khan and Sadiqabad, considered a “no-go” area ruled by dangerous criminals.

Masih then sought legal assistance from the Community Development Initiative (CDI), a human rights affiliate of the European Center for Law & Justice. With the kidnappers giving Saturday (March 5) as a deadline for payment of the ransom, CDI attorneys brought the issue to the notice of high police officials in Lahore and on March 4 obtained urgent legal orders from Model Town Superintendent of Police Haidar Ashraf to recover Shaheen, according to a CDI source.

The order ultimately went to Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Asghar Jutt of the Nashtar police station. Police accompanied by a CDI field officer raided the home of a contact person for the captors in Lahore, Naheed Bibi, the CDI source said, and officers arrested her in Awami Colony, Lahore.

With Naheed Bibi along, CDI Field Officer Haroon Tazeem and Masih accompanied five policemen, including ASI Jutt, on March 5 to Khan Baila, near Rahim Yar Khan – a journey of 370 miles, arriving that evening. Area police were not willing to cooperate and accompany them, telling them that Khan Baila was a “no-go area” they did not enter even during daytime, much less at night.

Not so lucky: in another recent case, 12 year-old Pakistani Christian girl Shazia Masih lies dead after an horrific attack by Muslim lawyer Ahmar-Mustikhan last year. He tried to silence Shazia's family with hush money and threats

Jutt told area police that he had orders from high officials to recover Shaheen Bib, and that he and Tazeem would lead the raid, the CDI source said. With Nashtar police also daring them to help, five local policemen decided to go with them for the operation, he said.

At midnight on Sunday (March 6), after some encounters and raids in a jungle area where houses are miles apart, the rescue team managed to get hold of Shaheen Bibi, the CDI source said. The captors handed over Shaheen Bibi on the condition that they would not be the targets of further legal action, the CDI source said.

Sensing that their foray into the danger zone had gone on long enough, Tazeem and Jutt decided to leave but told them that those who had sold Shaheen Bib in Lahore would be brought to justice.

Fatigued and fragile when she arrived in Lahore on Monday (March 7), Shaheen Bibi told CDN through her attorneys that she would pursue legal action against those who sold her fraudulently into slavery and humiliation.

She said that she had been chained to a tree outside a house, where she prayed continually that God would help her out of the seemingly impossible situation. After the kidnappers gave her father the March 5 deadline last week, Shaheen Bibi said, at one point she lifted her eyes in prayer, saw a cross in the sky and was comforted that God’s mighty hand would release her even though her father had no money to pay ransom.

On four previous occasions, she said, her captors had decided to kill her and had changed their mind.

Shaheen Bibi said there were about 10 other women in captivity with her, some whose hands or legs were broken because they had refused to be forcibly given in marriage. Among the women was one from Bangladesh who had abandoned hope of ever returning home as she had reached her 60s in captivity.

Masih told CDN that he had prayed that God would send help, as he had no money to pay the ransom. The day before the deadline for paying the ransom, he said, he had 100 rupees (less than US$2) in his pocket.

“Prophet, We have made lawful to you the wives whom you have granted dowries and the slave girls whom God has given you as booty;…” Qur’an 33:50

This horrific tale, unfortunately, is not exceptional in Pakistan.

Once the mainstream media stop wilfully ignoring stories like that of Shaheen Bibi, perhaps ordinary people in the West might realise that Islam is not a religion of peace in any way, shape or form – and that sites such as ours are not run by cranky, ranting hatemongers, but truth-tellers.

Islam lays down in the Qur’an and ahadith the terms and conditions in which Muslims can live under Islamic rule. And it’s not a good deal.

Christians in Pakistan and elsewhere in the Muslim world are treated as sub-human (take a bow, Egypt, too) – and every Pakistani Christian woman seen as potential targets for ultraviolent Muslim males, imbued with a sense of entitlement to such ‘war booty’ that comes directly from the Qur’an and the life of Mohammed.

MUSLIM CLERIC JAILED FOR RAPING YOUNG BOY

A Muslim cleric convicted of raping a young boy at a mosque has been jailed for 16 years

A Muslim cleric convicted of raping a young boy as he attended Islamic education lessons at his mosque has been jailed for 16 years.

Mohammed Hanif Khan, 43, was told he must spend at least eight years in jail after being found guilty by a jury at Nottingham Crown Court of sexual activity with a child, as well as the two counts of rape.

The charges relate to two boys who attended the mosque in Capper Street, Stoke-on-Trent, where he was imam, in 2009.

Khan, of Owler Lane, Sheffield, who appeared in court wearing a black suit, blue shirt and yellow tie, was sentenced by Mrs Justice Dobbs following a three-week trial.

Mrs Justice Dobbs told Khan, who sat with his hands in his lap and his eyes cast downwards as she outlined her reasons for imposing the sentence, that he had blatantly abused the trust bestowed on him by the community as imam of the mosque.

In front of a public gallery packed on one side with Khan’s supporters and on the other with the victims’ family members, she said: “A more serious breach of trust can’t be imagined. You were the imam and not only were you the boys’ teacher you were the boys’ guide.

“You were taken into the hearts of the community and treated like a god. One of the boys described you as being so big you were like the queen.”

For the two rape charges, she sentenced Khan to a determinate period of 16 years in prison, to serve a minimum of eight years before he could even apply to be freed, and to 12 months to run concurrently for the charge of sexual activity with a child. She also told him he would be on the sex offenders’ register for life and was subject to a sex offenders’ protection order.

Mrs Justice Dobbs also referred to Khan’s employment prior to his post as imam at the Capper Street mosque, which was as the UK’s first full-time Islamic minister at Dovegate Prison, near Uttoexeter.

She said he had resigned from this post after allegations emerged that he sexually harassed three female members of staff. This was not raised in front of the jury during the trial but was “significant” at sentencing, she said, because it served to show Khan was a serious risk to the public.

‘Callous and greedy’ woman convicted of slavery

A former hospital director who forced an African woman to work 18 hours a day became the first person in Britain to be convicted of “modern-day slavery.”

Saeeda Khan, 68, was ordered to pay 49-year-old Mwanahamisi Mruke, who was trafficked from Tanzania in 2006, 25,000 pounds.

She was spared a prison sentence, but Judge Geoffrey Rivlin said this was due to her own ill health and the fact she has two adult disabled children.

“You could easily have afforded to pay her a reasonable sum by way of wages,” said Rivlin during sentencing at London’s Southwark Crown Court.

“You chose to give her virtually nothing.

“Your own behaviour was callous and greedy,” the judge added.

Mruke was initially paid 10 pounds per week, but this allowance was stopped within a year.

Khan, who was found guilty of trafficking a person into the UK for exploitation, forbade Mruke from leaving the house in Harrow, north west London, and fed her two slices of bread a day.

The court had heard how Mruke was brought to Britain after working at a hospital in Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania, which Khan owned.

Khan promised to pay Mruke 50 pounds a week and said she would only have to work six hours a day.

“I felt like a fool, I was treated like a slave,” Mruke, who was saving up to help her daughter through college, said.

“I was hoping I would receive a salary and improve my life. But my hopes were dashed, my strength was reduced and I became unwell.”

Rivlin said Khan had told a “pack of lies” during the trial and had taken advantage of her “naive and illiterate” victim.

Mruke told the court that she would wake up at 6a.m. and then clean, garden, cook and go for walks with Khan’s sons before finally being allowed to sleep on a mattress in the kitchen at around midnight.

“I feel that justice should be passed and others should learn from this. I feel terrible about her,” Mruke said.

Mruke’s plight only came to light when she was allowed to visit a doctor over her varicose veins.

Mruke’s parents both died during her three-year ordeal, but she was allowed no contact with her family in Tanzania.

Earlier, prosecutor Caroline Haughey told Southwark Crown Court: “From the moment of her arrival in England Mwanamisi was made to sleep, work and live in conditions that fall by any understanding into that of slavery.”

Forced marriages ‘at record high’ – South Wales Police

ONE WOMAN DESCRIBES ESCAPING FORCED MARRIAGE

“My background is quite modern. No-one had been through it in my family. I was the eldest daughter. I was going to college. I wanted to be a teacher.

One day I came home and my mum was on the phone. She put the phone down and she goes ‘they’ve got someone for you to get married to’. I was like, “me?”.

I was awoken by someone pulling me by my hair. And I felt something cold on my face, like a rifle.

A torch flashed in my face and all I saw was three men. The husband, his brother and another man.

I was going to scream. He said: “You make a sound, and I’ll kill your mother.” I remember physically shaking.

Don’t think you have to do it because that’s exactly what I thought.

They have to find the guts and the courage to speak up and ask for help.”

South Wales Police say they are dealing with the largest number of cases of forced marriage and honour based-violence they have ever seen.

In the past 12 months, the force has dealt with 49 cases of forced marriage, up from a typical 30-35, with new cases almost every week.

The four Welsh forces have been involved in about 60 cases, with four in north Wales in six months.

The figures are released to coincide with International Women’s Day.

A forced marriage, as opposed to an arranged marriage, is where either bride or groom, or both, do not consent to a wedding and are coerced into accepting it.

In many cases they are told they will bring their family shame or dishonour if they refuse.

Ch Supt Neil Kinrade, head of South Wales Police’s communities and partnerships department, said forced marriage was a “hidden harm” among some sectors of the community.

He said: “I’m pleased that we are dealing with the numbers [of cases that] we are, however, we are still only dealing with a small number of the actual incidents and practices that are taking place.

“This, amongst the community, is a hidden harm.

“It goes on and it goes on often unchecked by senior members of the community who know it’s taking place.

“I think it’s less of a problem here than perhaps places like Bradford and London, but nevertheless, it is a problem and it’s something that we need to do something about.”

He said he believed his force had taken a lead role on the issue of forced marriage, drawing up a training scheme that was now used by more than half of UK police forces.

Strategies for helping victims included supplying them with a secret mobile phone if they feared they were being lured to their family’s country of origin as a prelude to a forced marriage.

The force had also set up a “buddy” system where force marriage “survivors” were a role model to those who were now going through the trauma.

‘Complete shock’

Ch Supt Kinrade added: “We do understand the issues and I think we are becoming more effective at dealing with it but what I sense is happening is there is an East v West clash.”

He said young people were being educated in south Wales and were “very westernised” then their families give them the news that they have had a partner chosen for them.

“And that often comes as a complete shock to them, against their intent to go to university, to maybe follow a career path. And that’s where many youngsters are rejecting it,” he added.

“And I think that’s important, because here in the UK – and this is the government and the police stance – people must have their basic human rights of determining their own future.”

Gwent Police said they had 14 incidents recorded under honour-based violence in 2009/10 and a further five in 2010/11.

Dyfed-Powys Police said they had been involved in two cases of forced marriage over the past two years.

More about the Muslim genocide of millions of black Africans using castration.

Arab historian, Ibn Khaldum wrote, “The only people who accept slavery are the Negroes, because of an inferior degree of humanity, their place being closer to the level of animals.”

To make sure these “animals” did not reproduce when they were enslaved in Arab Muslim lands, they used castration on the men, a brutal mutilation that caused the death of millions over 13 centuries. The Quran encourages the enslavement of non-Muslims and it has been estimated that Muslims have enslaved some 17 million black Africans, a practice that continues today.

In Sudan, Muslims in the North still hold tens of thousands of Black African slaves, many of them Christians from the South.

Restaurant worker ‘put three-year-old girl in chest freezer as punishment for being naughty’

Accused: Mohammed Hussain arrives at Sheffield Crown court where he is accused of nine counts of cruelty against four different children

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 3:20 PM on 17th February 2011

A restaurant worker put a three-year-old girl in a deep freezer as a punishment for being ‘naughty’, a court has heard.

Bangladeshi-born Mohammed Hussain, 48, is alleged to have put the girl in the top of a large chest freezer before putting the lid wholly or partially down on her on several occasions.

He also reportedly threw a hot drink over a ten-year-old girl, hit a three-year-old boy with a coat hanger and would regularly lash out at the children if they were too noisy.

Hussain denies nine counts of cruelty against four different children, It is alleged he hit three girls and boy aged between three and 12 with sticks, sandals and belts. Hussain is also charged with causing aggravated bodily harm to a 42-year-old woman by hitting her in the face with a wooden spoon, which he denies.

Jeremy Hill-Baker, prosecuting, told a Sheffield Crown Court jury: ‘The prosecution says that is an act of misguided punishment. The defendant would pick up the girl and put her in the freezer.

‘He would not do this for any extended time perhaps for a minute but you will perhaps agree it is a frightening prospect.

‘One witness said she saw him putting the little girl in there on two occasions. He said she had been naughty.’

Jurors were shown pictures of the freezer and then watched a recorded interview with a woman who claimed to be present when the child was put in the freezer cabinet.

She said through an interpreter: ‘He put the little girl in the deep freezer.

‘I asked him: “What if she died? What did she do to you? Is this how you treat children? “He promised not to do it again. But he did it again. I told him if I hadn’t been watching he would have killed her.’

The incidents came to light after the eldest child, now 15, told a school learning mentor in March, 2009.

Hussain was arrested but denied everything. He said the allegations were concocted because of a dispute over money.

Mr Hill-Baker said the crux of the case was whether Hussain ‘wilfully assaulted’ the children.

Hussain, who has been living in the UK for 16 years, also faces nine lesser charges of battery as an alternative to the cruelty charges.

The trial continues.
