Shamim Masih writes about the exploitation and deprivation of Pakistani Christians in a slum colony just outside of Islamabad. The Christians in Pakistan may not be having their heads chopped off en masse as in the terrorist pseudo-nation calling itself the Islamic State but their lives are lived in oppression just as the dhimmitude (See Also HERE) Pact of Omar (Umar) etched in the Islamic stone of Sharia Law.

There is no official Islamic “dhimmitude” in Pakistan or in most of the Muslim dominated nations; however the treatment of non-Muslims is still in the dhimmitude Muslim mentality in Islamic culture. ERGO the Christians Shamim are advocating for are essentially treated as dhimmis by Pakistan Sunni Muslims.

Khana Dak Christians
Islamabad: Christians of Khana Dak celebrated Independence Day across the Korang Nala, where, they have no access to a road. The local government has turned a cold face towards this community. Residents raised small funds, which are awfully short of the total budget. On the 69th Independence Day celebration of Pakistan, I was invited to join the celebration at Khana Dak, (a Christian colony with more than 70 houses). There, Rah-e-Nijat Ministry arranged singing and a debate competition for young church members with the local priest. We drove through the pasture. The event was good and we all enjoyed it, at the end youngsters were encouraged [by] distributing shields to the winners.
But I noticed the disheveled existence of the local community in the area. This community lives across the Korang Nala, or Korang River, (Korang River is the outlet stream of Rawal Dame. This stream crosses Islamabad Express Highway from Korang Town and Judicial Colony). This river strikes this colony every year and destroys what meager housing the poor have which includes the elimination of food supplies, crops, and form animals. The recent and last year, I met with victims of the massive deluge but these Christians received no help from the authorities. They have been affected by the flood every year and yet no disaster recovery plan or infrastructure has been put in place to enhance their safety or security. Another difficulty they face [is] that the owner of the nearby colony (Qutbal Town) has banned their way to a road. Last year, there was a flood all around [Khana Dak] but there was no passage to this colony.
This year, the residents have been able to negotiate with the owner of the town and got the passage towards the road side. But there is a problem to construct the bridge on the Korang Nala. The local government should construct a bridge on the nala but the Capital Development Authority (CDA) does not fulfill its responsibility. The families have been working together to arrange funds. In the meantime, they raised funds for two big pipes. But this is woefully short of the level they need. There is an urgent call for support to the downtrodden families.
During the last year, when government agencies and charities have set up temporary shelter in the form of tents and providing food, clean water and medical aid in the flood affected areas, poor Christians of this area as well as Layyah, Sharoon Colony and Gilgit were overlooked and forgotten. Christian communities have survived quite miraculously and remain unscathed. Victims had lost most of their possessions which had been washed away with their homes or irretrievably ruined by water damage and bruising carriage via the water surge.
Presently, Rah-e-Nijat Ministry® is raising funds for the construction of the bridge; sources said that the total cost of the project is more than 2.5 million Pak rupees. Please help them by giving financially, that they might continue the work. I hope hearts are stirred to offer help to these victims, as I believe one day we all have to answer to our maker.

* Dhimmis at all times should be aware that they are inferior to Muslims and to behave accordingly.
* Dhimmis owe a special tax. Which must be personally handed, with the dhimmis ritual will be humbled (for example by saving them in the face). Pays a dhimmi not, you lose the right to protection and can do every Muslim to him what he wants.
* Muslims dhimmis can prescribe what clothes to wear so that their submission is emphasized.
* Dhimmis may not have cars or other motor vehicles, most bikes. They should always give priority to Muslims.

* Dhimmis should never, ever carry a weapon and can therefore do no service to the police or the army.
* The insult or offend Muslims with dhimmis is strictly prohibited, the converse is not a problem. A dhimmi who reproves a Muslim inflicts injury is heavy, the opposite case is a modest fine enough. If a Muslim kills a dhimmi and therefore no acceptable reason can argue he should pay blood money. On the killing of a Muslim with a dhimmi is of course the death penalty.
