Murdered bodies of Narveen Bibi and Zulifqar

 

While Asia Bibi experienced yet another hearing delay by the Pakistan court system she may have heard the tragic news that her father, mother and brother were attacked. The attack resulted in Asia’s mother Parveen and her brother Zulifqar being murdered. Shamim Masih has the report.

Worse attack on Christians

ISLAMABAD: Asia Bibi was due to appear in Lahore High Court (LHC) on March 17, 2014, and went to Lahore for the case hearing. LHC deferred her case again, but there I came to know that farm laborers were attacked in District Kasur near Lahore. Sadiq Masih ([Asia Bibi’s] father) was brutally injured, while his wife (Parveen Bibi) and his son Zulifqar were killed on the spot.

 

I went there with Sohail Johnson chief of Sharing Life Ministry (SLMP) and came to know that on March 16, 2014, Baber Baig along with his companion entered the victims’ house forcibly. They broke into the house and opened fire on Zulifqar and Parveen Bibi who died on the spot while Sadiq got injured. The survivors include Nargis, Ulfit, Waqar and Patris out of seven members of the family.

 

Sadiq and his wife Parveen reportedly were pursuing the case of his son Youhana murdered on February 19, 2013, FIR 67/13 by the same accused [Baber Baig] and were cautioned not to peruse [Blog Editor: Shamim might mean ‘pursue’] the case. As soon as the Baber Baig was released on bail, they forced the complainant to stop pursuing the case against them. But they didn’t and [so] they killed [Parveen and Zulifqar] in revenge.  The accused [Baber Baig and probably other thugs] are the [perpetrators of] record in the history [tracked by] police. And [so] another FIR 302, 324 and 34/14 Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) was registered against the same culprits.

 

The SLMP team went there to take care of the matter. The SLMP provides the legal assistance and medical care to the injured of the family. The injured Sadiq Masih (head of the family) was admitted to the hospital for his medical treatment. Sohail Johnson said that it is a common practice, especially in rural areas, that majority Muslim landlords think about Christians as a commodity not human beings. They believe that Christians should follow their orders as they are slaves. [Blog Editor: Can you say, ‘dhimmitude’?] We are working to change the mindset of this feudal system, he added.

 

Christians in Pakistan live in fear of retaliatory attacks from the Muslim extremists enraged by the blasphemy accusations. Christians are being targeted because of ethnic prejudice. 

 

Be Blessed,

Shamim Masih
