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.

SHOOTER at Frankfurt Airport is from Kosovo. MUSLIM? Yes, Muslim

So far two dead, two wounded after a gunman opened fire on a bus carrying American soldiers at Frankfurt Airport.

BILD – Two dead in shooting at Frankfurt airport – a man from Kosovo (21) has opened fire, bus with U.S. soldiers attacked! Alleged perpetrator of the attack on the bus was shouting Islamist slogans. (“Allahu Akbar” I presume)

BBC – The driver of the bus and a US soldier were reportedly killed, while two others were seriously injured.

A 21-year-old suspect from Kosovo is said to have been arrested after the shooting in front of Terminal 2 at Europe’s second-biggest airport. Police have told German media it is not clear if it was a terrorist attack.

Police spokesman Jurgen Linker told Germany’s Die Welt newspaper that the incident seemed to have taken place inside the bus. US Army Europe has not yet issued a comment, but said it was looking into the incident.

The BBC’s Stephen Evans in Berlin says the airport is not far from Ramstein Air Base, the US Air Force’s headquarters in Europe.

Four Islamists were convicted in March last year in Germany for plotting to bomb targets including Ramstein Air Base.

NPR –The U.S. Army in Europe referred calls to the Air Force, but a spokeswoman said she could not immediately confirm that the casualties were airmen nor give any details of the incident. The bus had a U.S. government license place marked “AF” for Air Force.

Fuellhardt said he could not give out any information on the suspect, but authorities in Kosovo said he was a citizen of the tiny Balkan nation.

Kosovo Interior Minister Bajram Rexhepi said in an interview that German police have identified the suspect Arif Uka, a Kosovo citizen from the northern town of Mitrovica.
