Farrukh H Saif of World Vision in Progress (WVIP) has been accused of doing something nefarious to the Pakistan Christian community. In the article below Shamim does not provide any detail but only writes:

 

“I quote; the shameful act some Pakistani people did against the chief of World Vision in Progress (WVIP); Farrukh H Saif. I guess and believe that it is fabricated and planned against his organization and his family. … And this act by some duffer [Blogger Editor: I am guessing a “duffer” is a common British term – It means “An incompetent or stupid person, especially an elderly one] not only is a try to defame him only, but the entire community involved in helping Christians in the country. He said neither he has any affiliation with PML-N and nor can [he] go against the Christians of the country. …”

 

Shamim’s article is a character defense of Farrukh H. Saif who is the Executive Director of the Pakistan WVIP. The only negative I could find on Farrukh H Saif via Google is a WVIP notification denying they are “…against the Pakistani Christian Asylum Seekers” who fled Muslim violence to Bangkok Thailand. Since the context of Shamim’s story incorporates the political party Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). The Wikipedia write-up on PML-N labels the party a Center-Right coalition. Pakistani Christians tend to question just how “Center” the PML-N is. An Op-Ed by Nazir S Bhatti I found in the Pakistan Christian Post profoundly writes the reasons for Christians and other non-Muslim Pakistanis to distrust the agenda of PML-N.

Self – Esteem and Dignity lies in Mutual Respect

ISLAMABAD: Healthy self-esteem is important because some of us think too little of ourselves; on the other hand, some of us overestimate themselves. The key to an honest and accurate evaluation knows the basis of our self-worth - our identity. Evaluating yourself by the worldly standards of success and achievement can cause you to think too much about your worth in the eyes of others and thus miss your true value in God’s eyes.

 

Many Christian activists are working in this arena; some have a solid background and support. While others pretend but actually are playing blame games. This is the point which disgraces and creates ambiguity among our Pakistani Christian among West. I am aware of most but not all the activists and groups I noted trying to uplift lives of Christians in Pakistan. Who begin with good intentions but don’t always follow through once larger sums start coming in. This is sad that some Pakistanis seem to work against each other and this is what the West sees so does not feel able to trust or believe unity is possible to move the cause forward and support it.

 

I quote; the shameful act some Pakistani people did against the chief of World Vision in Progress (WVIP); Farrukh H Saif. I guess and believe that it is fabricated and planned against his organization and his family. To my knowledge and [what I have] seen [of] his work for the last couple of years, he is not this kind of person. Whatever his past is I [don’t] care, but [for] now he has saved hundreds of lives of innocent Pakistani Christians who [are] caught under the false cases. Farrukh is the leading person from the Pakistani Christian community who is currently working for the persecuted Christians in the Islamic world. And this act by some duffer not only is a try to defame him only, but the entire community involved in helping Christians in the country. He said neither he has any affiliation with PML-N and nor can [he] go against the Christians of the country. Pakistani Christians are dear to me and I love them and serve them beyond [the] horizon, he added.

   

Farrukh himself denied and condemns this shameful and cowardly act and urged those people to stop doing cunning [exploitation] and work honestly for the betterment of Pakistani Christians. Instead sitting in different countries and enjoy a luxurious life in the name of poor Pakistani Christians. He also warned and cautioned to take strict measures against the people involved in it.
