This Is What Happens To Christians In Pakistan

One of the most under reported news stories in the world is the horrific persecution of Christians in many Islamic nations. For example, a 28-year-old Christian Pakistani man was just brutally tortured, raped and then murdered for refusing to convert to Islam, and there was virtually no mention of this in the world media.

Fortunately at least Fox News covered this story. According to Fox News, Pakistani police discovered the mangled body of 28-year-old Tariq "Litto" Mashi Ghauri lying in a canal outside a rural village in Punjab Province on May 15th.

Reportedly, Ghauri had been raped and brutally stabbed at least five times.


Because he refused to convert to Islam.

This is what Christians in some areas of the world have to deal with on a daily basis.

Ghauri's 24-year-old brother explained what they did to him....

"They have sexually abuse him, torture him with a knife on his testicle and genitals."

Yes, that sounds very loving.

So is this horrific crime being investigated?

Are the Pakistani authorities doing anything?


Ghauri's brother told FOXNews that the police are refusing to investigate: "They are free. Nothing is happening to them. No investigation is running."

The reality is that Christians in Pakistan, just as in many other Islamic nations, are treated with utter contempt.

According to the most recent statistics, Pakistan's population is approximately 97 percent Muslim, while Christians only make up about 3 percent.

"What the Muslim society has done in Pakistan is just associate low caste with being Christian," stated Jeremy Sewall, Advocacy Director of the International Christian Concern, the first organization to report the killing. "Many of these people, they clean human waste and that's their job, and that's what Christians are known for in Pakistan."

Would you be willing to endure that kind of treatment for what you believe?

The reality is that Christians in western countries are totally spoiled.

Christians in other nations know what it is really like to suffer for Christ.

Religious freedom is precious and needs to be protected.

In Pakistan, the "Ministry of Religious Affairs", which is supposed to protect everyone's religious freedom, actually has a verse from the Koran on its masthead that says this: "Islam is the only religion acceptable to God."

So much for religious freedom, eh?

The truth is that religious freedom is not spreading around the world. Religious freedom is actually in rapid retreat in large areas of the globe and persecution of Christians is increasing.

Do you have a faith worth dying for?

What will you do when Christians start being persecuted where you live?

The truth is that being a Christian is not easy, but being a Christian IS worth living and dying for. We encourage you to find out the truth.....
