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.

Death Death Death and more Death by the Religion of so called ‘Peace’

Bomb kills 37 at Pakistan funeral

A suicide bomber targeting members of an anti-Taliban militia at a funeral in northwestern Pakistan killed 37 people and wounded at least 45 others on Wednesday, police said.

Police and witnesses said the bomber had slipped into the congregation of more than 200 people attending funeral prayers for the wife of a known anti-Taliban militiaman in Adezai village, near Peshawar city.

Television footage showed bearded elderly men wearing bloodstained clothes rushing from the scene in panic. Prayer caps and slippers lay alongside scattered body parts at the prayer site, which was spattered with blood.

“We have taken 37 dead bodies and 45 injured to the hospital,” Kalam Khan, a senior police officer at the site, told AFP.

The head of the main hospital in Peshawar city, Abdul Hameed Afridi, told AFP that 36 bodies had been received along with body parts, and warned that the death toll could rise, with several people critically injured.

Police officer Mohammad Ijaz Khan confirmed the bomber’s target.

“The target of the bombing was members of the anti-Taliban militia,” Khan said.

“We have sent teams to remove the bodies and shift the injured to the hospital,” he added.

Villagers brought wooden carts to transport the dead and wounded, an AFP reporter at the scene said.

Adezai village is known for clashes between the Pakistani Taliban and pro-government militiamen, local police officer Siraj Ahmed told AFP.

Witness Gul Akbar, 22, told AFP the blast took place as those attending the funeral had lined up to offer prayers.

“The suicide bomber very easily came here and joined the participants. There was not a single policeman to check him,” said Akbar.

Akbar said that the village, close to the lawless tribal region of Darra Adam Khel, had been attacked several times.

“We have had several fights with them (militants) but we cannot stop the suicide attacks. We need the government’s help to stop such attacks,” he said.

Hamyun Khan, a member of the village pro-government militia, complained that the government had not provided enough arms, ammunition and police to deal with the militant threat.

“I was standing in the last row. The blast took place in the middle of the funeral. It was so severe and huge that I still feel deaf,” he said.

“The government and police are responsible for such incidents.”

Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani issued a statement condemning the attack and reiterated the government’s “resolve to root out the cancer of terrorism from every nook and corner of the country”.

Peshawar city lies at the gateway to the country’s remote and militant-infested tribal regions.

The United States has repeatedly urged its key anti-militant ally Pakistan to launch army offensives to combat extremists in the border region, which it says is home to key Taliban leaders.

But Islamabad says its resources are already overstretched by the militant threat across the country.

More than 4,000 people have died in suicide and bomb attacks throughout Pakistan since government forces launched an offensive against militants in a mosque in Islamabad in 2007.

On Tuesday, a car bomb planted by suspected militants at a filling station in the central Punjab region killed 25 people and wounded 154 others.

The last major attack in the northwest hit a packed mosque during Friday prayers last week on the outskirts of Nowshera, close to Peshawar, killing at least 11 people and wounding over 20 others.

Taliban and Al-Qaeda-linked militants launch daily attacks across northwest Pakistan and the tribal belt that Washington has branded the most dangerous place on Earth.

Why do Pakistanis want to live in Britain ?

Positive views of the United Kingdom have risen, making it the second most popular country in the world.

The BBC World Service Country Rating Poll asked nearly 29,000 people to rate the global influence of 16 major nations and the European Union.

The UK’s positive rating rose from 53% in 2010 to 58% this year. It is the first time it has been the runner-up in the annual poll.

Negative views of the UK decreased by 2%, now standing at 17%. Of the 27 countries polled, 24 lean positive towards the UK while 2, includingPakistan, has an overall negative view of the UK.

So why do Pakistanis want to live here ?

Is it because the UK has:

•Good standards of education
•A free health service
•High life expectancy
•low infant mortality rates
•Relativley low crime rate and fear of crime
•Higher average earnings than many other countries
•A strong currency
•A generous benifits system
•English is also one of the most widely spoken languages in the world

Or is it because of Arab racism towards Pakistanis that they would prefer to live in Britain than in Saudi Arabia as racist humiliations from shop-keepers, taxi- drivers, catering staff and so on have become a regular feature of the pilgrimage to Mecca for the diverse ethnic groups of Islam ?

Another religiously motivated murder – Religion of Peace ?

Islamabad (AsiaNews) – Muhammad Imran, a man charged with blasphemy in April 2009 and later released for lack of evidence, was gunned down in the Danada, a village near Rawalpindi. He had been accused of making insulting remarks about Prophet Mohammed during a discussion in a village cafe. However, he and another defendant were eventually set free by a court order after prosecution failed to produce evidence.

Imran was in a shop when two attackers came in and shot him dead. A third accomplice stayed outside. According to the victim’s brother Muhammad Akramm, Imran was killed by the same man from a nearby village who had originally accused him of blasphemy.

The murder comes two days after Minority Affairs Minister Shahbaz Bhatti was killed by militants for opposing the controversial blasphemy law. The Minority Affairs minister was laid to rest yesterday next to his father’s grave in the village of Khushpur in a ceremony attended by more than 15,000 people.

“We will continue Shahbaz Bhattit`s struggle for minority rights,” said Pervaiz Rafique, a leader of the All Pakistan Minority Assembly (APMA).

“Extremists can kill a person, not his thoughts. Shahbaz Bhatti wanted Pakistan to become Quaid-e-Azam`s Pakistan, we will carry on his mission,” he added. Quaid-e-Azam or Father of Nation refers to Ali Jinnah, founder of modern Pakistan.

Police have arrested 15 people in connection with Bhatti’s murder. Police also said that it would interrogate Mumtaz Qadri, the murderer of Punjab Governor Salman Taseer.

Every aspect of the case is under investigation. Eyewitness accounts and the testimony of Bhatti’s driver present different aspects, said IG Islamabad Police Wajid Durrani.

The Russian Orthodox Church has joined the chorus of condolences sent to Pakistani Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani for Shahbaz Bhatti’s assassination.

“Many Christian Churches” were “encouraged by the appointment of Mr. Bhatti” to the “cabinet. As a politician, he managed to do a lot” to reduce “religious tension in Pakistani society and courageously spoke out against initiatives of religious extremists,” said Metropolitan Hilarion, head of the Moscow Patriarchate’s Department for External Church Relations.

This crime “is not the only act of violence against Christians in Pakistan. Neither simple believers, nor high-ranking officials are protected today from aggression on the part of people who disguise their evil deeds under religious convictions.”

Blackburn Paedophile to be deported – RESULT !

A CONVICTED paedophile who kidnapped and sexually exploited two underage girls will be deported following a successful legal battle.

Campaigners and his victims were outraged when Pakistani-national Zulfar Hussain won the right to stay in the country last April.

He had argued that he should not be deported because he had a wife and children in Blackburn.

Now, after 10 months of legal wrangling and further appeals, during which Hussain sacked his legal team, a special immigration court has ruled he must be sent back to Pakistan.

The 48-year-old was sentenced to five years and eight months in jail for child abduction, sexual activity with a child and supplying youngsters with ecstasy and had been due to be released in April.

But the UK Borders Agency immediately lodged its own appeal to keep Hussain held in an immigration removal centre while they fought he ruling.

A spokesman for UKBA said he would now been flown out of the country as soon as possible.

He said: “Our priority is to protect the public and we strongly believe foreign law breakers should be removed from the UK at the earliest possible opportunity.

“The UK Border Agency will automatically seek to deport any foreign national criminal who has been jailed for a serious offence.”

UKBA officials are now preparing the paperwork for his deportation and the ‘wheels are in motion’ to put him on the next available flight.

Hussain, formerly of Cowell Way, Blackburn, was jailed in August 2007 for grooming two girls aged 13 and 14, showering them with gifts, cash and heroin before taking them to a house and using them for sex.

His fellow convicted sexual predator Qaiser Naveed, 34, formerly of Colne Road, Burnley, did not appeal against his deportation order.

However Hussain, who spent his time in custody at HMP Wymott near Leyland, based his claim to stay in the country on his ‘right to a family life’ as he had lived in Blackburn with his family for 10 years.

A previous appeal hearing was told that his wife and children were all British Citizens and were standing by him and had been to see him in prison.

His representatives said that he had expressed remorse and had been well-behaved in prison an that he had no previous convictions in Pakistan or Britain.

But his victim, now 18, previously told the Lancashire Telegraph she was living in fear and ‘constantly looking over her shoulder’ knowing he could be released back into Lancashire at any moment.

And Blackburn MP and former justice minister Jack Straw said any decision which allowed him to stay in the country was ‘concerning’ and he backed the Home Office’s decision to appeal Hussian’s bid to stay in the country.

DS Mark Whelan, from the multi-agency Engage team which investigated the case as one of its first major inquiries, said it was a victory for common sense.

He said: “The impact on the victims in this case will be reduced following this successful appeal by the UK Borders Agency.

“The Engage team continues to support victims both before and after court cases. I’m sure both victims will be happy with this result.

“Knowing he’s back in Pakistan will mean they are able to feel safe and draw a line under this whole episode.”

Religion of Peace – Christian Pakistani Minister Shot Dead

The Pakistani minister for minorities has been shot and killed in an attack in Islamabad.

Shahbaz Bhatti, who was the only Christian in the Pakistani cabinet, appears to have been the victim of a targeted attack.

The minister had been a leading campaigner for changes to Pakistan’s anti-blasphemy law.

Islamabad police inspector Wajid Durani said the minister was returning home when his car was stopped by up to four unidentified gunmen.

They opened fire on the government car killing the minister. The driver was also injured in the attack.

Police who are investigating the murder recovered 25 bullets from the scene of the attack.

Minister Bhatti was not travelling with any guards at the time even though he was entitled to a two car police escort.

Although no group has claimed responsibility for the killing pamphlets were found at the scene attributed to the Pakistani Taliban warning of the same fate for anyone opposing the blasphemy laws.

The Vatican condemned the killing calling it an “unspeakable act of violence”.

Earlier this year the governor of Punjab, Salman Taseer, who was also calling for a change to the anti-blasphemy law was shot and killed by one of his own guards.

After Taseer’s murder, Bhatti said he had also received death threats but vowed to carry on.

In November last year a Pakistani court used the anti-blasphemy law to sentence a Christian mother of four to death by hanging.

Shahbaz Bhatti had met the family and passed on a plea for clemency.

Christians are the largest religious minority in Pakistan where 95% of the population is Muslim.

Shock Video Shows Arab Children ‘Playing’ Suicide Bomb Game

A sickening video has emerged out of Pakistan which shows young children role-playing a Taliban suicide bombing. The short video shows one boy dressed all in black — the “bomber” — bidding farewell to friends before running past a “security officer” (dressed in white) to detonate his make-believe bomb in the middle of a small group.

A gruesome “explosion” is simulated by throwing dust and sand into the air as the bomber’s “victims” fall lifeless to the ground.

According to the Daily Mail, the video was posted online by Ahsan Masood, a Pashtun from Waziristan in Pakistan who thought the video was “funny.” Masood guessed the video had been filmed in Khost, Afghanistan before being sent to him from a friend.

The distressing video seems to show innocent children using role-play to understand the violent circumstances they see in their everyday lives, the Mail notes.

Salma Jafar of Save the Children UK in Pakistan, told The Guardian: ‘It’s horrifying and alarming.

‘These children have become fascinated by bombers rather than condemning them.

‘If they glamorise violence now, they can become part of it later in life.’
