(Daily Times) LAHORE: A large gathering of Christians on Tuesday protested against BaghbanpuraÂs assistant superintendent of police (ASP)-Investigation for allegedly supporting a kidnapper. The protestors chanted slogans against police and appealed to higher authorities for justice. They said that Muhammad Abbas, a resident of Gohawa village, had kidnapped 14-year-old Christian girl Asma.
When the family tried contacting Abbas's uncle Bashir, he had promised them the return of their daughter safely within a few days. Bashir then seized the opportunity to produce fake marriage certificates declaring that Asma and Abbas were now lawfully wedded.
[But when] Asma's brother Nadeem Masih had tried to contact higher authorities...Bashir and Abbas shot him and fled, said the protestors. staff report
News like this often displays the reality of how "tolerant" many Muslim nations are of other faiths. With the exception of Iraq, Afghanistan (and all other democratic republics) Christians, as well as any other faith face immense persecution underneath Islamic governments which is only exceeded by Communism itself. Unlike many of it's neighbors though, Pakistan seems very sensitive to world opinion and hopefully if enough pressure is put on the government, incidents like these will be able to receive justice instead of a "blind eye."
