Hector Aleem, the victorious prisoner

Written by Liza S.Josephine
“I am sharing the testimony of Hector Aleem, Chairman Peace Worldwide with the world.”
My name is Hector Aleem. I am a missionary and a human rights activist. I did lots of work for Pakistani Christians. There was a church destroyed in Islamabad for which I raised my voice and took the case to the Prime Minister of Pakistan and asked to register case against the culprits who destroyed the church. Instead of lodging the case against the culprits, the government of Pakistan with the help of muslim extremists registered a false blasphemy case against me under section 295-C. and arrested me. They looted my house and destroyed my office and kicked my family out the house.
During my imprisonment, I was not allowed to see my family and after my arrest, I didn’t know that where is my family neither my family knew if I was alive or not. I spent those days in complete solitude and during that period police officers, high officials of prison and the government of Pakistan with Islamic scholars kept on insisting me to embrace islam. They offered me money, high status, luxury cars, peaceful life and women to marry but I always refused. When I refused, I got punished by them and they hung me upside down with hand cuffs and beat me with wooden stick on my feet, hands and other joints. 
They used to beat me unless I get faint, when I used to regain my consciousnesses they asked me if I still love Jesus Christ? My answer was always the same, “Jesus is my Lord and I will not prefer anyone above my Lord Jesus Christ” then they start beating me again and this continued for four years. I was threatened by them continuously that they would kill my both sons and convert my daughters and wife to islam. In the meanwhile, my family continuously received threat letters and death notes. I was tortured in worst possible way both mentally and physically but I accepted the torture and solitude instead of leaving my faith and Jesus Christ. I got arrested due to my faith and spent four years in prison for the same reason. Jesus Christ, whom I chose not to leave had never left me. He kept me and family safe, I was not able to bear a little pain due to my heart condition but I tolerated much during my time in prison
I was released and acquitted from the case that has death penalty; no one has ever been acquitted from this case in the history of Pakistan. My life, especially the time of my imprisonment is full of miracles and I have many testimonies. I will keep sharing my testimonies with all of you and I am thankful to God Almighty that He has saved me and gave me new life. Today I am out of that country and living a peaceful life with my family which is a great blessing to me. Be strong in Jesus name. Amen.

Testimony of Hector Aleem

My main charge was blasphemy under section 295 C that has only one punishment which is the death penalty. While I was in prison, many other charges were lodged against me so that I could not come out and start my work that I left (my missionary work and construction of the church).

This incident was on December 21, 2010. It was my hearing date that day. I was brought from prison in front of the judge. My wife and both of my daughters were also there for the hearing; they were covering their faces. I thought that it was a normal hearing.  The judge called, and told me that after one hour your case judgment will be announced (not the blasphemy case, the other case) but this was a false case of land grabbing.  It was actually a church land where a church was to be built which was already there many years ago but was destroyed by Government of Pakistan.  My only fault was to struggle to rebuild that church.

When judge called me after one hour, he awarded me seven years punishment without any proof and evidence. I wasn't allowed to have a lawyer. And almost $2500 in fines and in case I cannot pay the big amount, I would have to spend 2 more years in prison as a penalty. In short, it was of total nine years imprisonment. I was shocked and very upset, and I thought that it's totally illegal and baseless. My wife and both daughters started to cry and I was so helpless and didn't know what to do. After the hearing, I was taken back to the prison. And there I was put into a dirty and isolated cell. That night, I cried a lot and I screamed with pain and the feeling of being deserted. I could not sleep that night, and I prayed all night. I asked God why He has forsaken me and why I am suffering like this. I asked Him that when you know the truth that it was not a land grabbing case but I peacefully struggled for the rebuilding of the destroyed church than why you still let it happen to me? Then I decided that I would go on 10 day fast, I will eat and drink a little after every 24 hour.

When I completed my 10 days fast, that same evening, a prison officer came to my cell and told me that I will be shifted to another cell. He said that you are being shifted to another cell because your sentence has been finished because the High Court Chief Justice took an action against the judge that awarded me a long sentence without any evidence. That judge was removed from the Government Service and he ordered an inquiry against that same judge. “Now your sentence has been removed and your record is clean and you are as innocent as a little child” the officer said. And those false charges (against me in that particular case) have been dropped. I thanked God and it was my great testimony in prison that it never happened that a judge be granted a punishment for awarding illegal punishment. After that I became stronger in God and my faith got stronger than ever. Our God is great and He is good. Satan keeps doing his work and God allows him to do things against us but God does His work in time and his timings are perfect. Amen

Hector Aleem: Pakistan is the hub of Evil Thoughts

Pakistani Muslims always hurt the religious feelings of others. Actually, Pakistan is an epicenter of terrorism and hub of evil thoughts. Then they claim on their paki media that all religions are enjoying freedom and that we respect all religions (which is not true). Now here is another way for Pakistani Muslims to express their hate towards Christians. There are shoes being sold in Pakistan which has Holy Cross and British Flag printed on them. For those who don't know, United Kingdom is officially a Christian country and the flag of UK has four Crosses on it. These shoes are being manufactured and sold in Pakistan and people are buying these shoes with joy with a thinking that they are crushing Christianity under their shoes. Center for Legal Aid Assistance and Settlement (CLAAS) took action on it. Chief of CLAAS Mr. Joseph Francis and his colleagues have been successful in registering a case. On October 09, 2014 FIR # 959/14 offence under section 295-C has been registered against unknown persons in the Saddar police station Cantt Lahore. Now this FIR has been registered against unknown persons, what will happen after that? who is unknown? will the police even bother to arrest someone? The answer is no, nothing will happen and no one will be arrested because of biased police and discriminatory system of Pakistan. The shopkeeper who was caught red handed, the place he bought shoes from and the owner of the factory in which the shoes are being produced, all of them should be arrested and punished. I have been in jail for 4 years due to a false blasphemy case (A crime I never committed), they arrested me as fast as they could but police did not arrest anyone in this case. I really appreciate what Mr. Joseph Francis did for our faith. May God bless him. Now what should we all do in reaction? Should we also make shoes with the flag of Pakistan and face of Quaid-e-Azam (The founder of Pakistan)???

Hector Aleem's interview in Daily Jinnah

This interview was published in a Pakistani Newspaper known as "Daily Jinnah". For those who cannot understand Urdu, Hector Aleem here is talking about some Christian politicians of Pakistan who are not doing anything for Christians. Instead of working for them, these politicians are misusing their name. (Media Coordinator, Peace Worldwide)

Hector Aleem writes about the murdered Christian Zafar Bhatti

I know Zafar Bhatti personally who was murdered in Adiala Prison on 25 September, 2014. Bhatti was accused of blasphemy under section 295-C. Pakistan has become the most dangerous country, these Christians get killed in the name of religion because civilised countries do not respond to these blasphemy cases and never come forward to help Christians in need. Western countries are providing aid to Pakistan for education and poverty alleviation to exterminate extremism but the more they get educated the more they become extremist. The biggest example we have is the leader of ISIS who is a PHD. The solution of this problem is not financial aid but a stern action by the western powers is needed. The Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif has arrived at United Nations Headquarters New York, USA. I urge all civilized nations to question him about what is happening to Christians in Pakistan.
A person who is accused of blasphemy do not get positive response by western embassies after they get released and if they succeed in fleeing from Pakistan they do not get positive and immediate response regarding the asylum in civilised countries. They get same response by the Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and other human rights organisations because all these organisations care about is Palestinians and IDPs of Pakistan. The western countries and all human rights organisations are also responsible of killings of these Christians inside or outside the prison as much as their killers are. The killer will not be punished but will be considered as a hero of Pakistan and Muslims, even the Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif would be smiling right now because he also considers him a hero. When Salman Taseer was shot dead, Nawaz Sharif and Shabaz Sharif did not attend his funeral. All non elected Christian parliamentarians should resign immediately and stand tall with the Christian nation because the whole Christian nation in Pakistan is under threat.

8 things every Christian should know about Rosh Hashanah

Rosh Hashanah marks the beginning of the High Holy days in the Jewish calendar – the days between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur ten days later (the ten days of repentence). What's it all about? Here's your handy guide...
  1. You might need a trumpet. Rosh Hashanah means 'head of the year', and marks the start of the new year in the Jewish calendar. It's referred to in Leviticus 23:24-25 as "a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts." Hence its other name – the Feast of Trumpets. A shofar is blown during the service at the synagogue. (In case you don't already own a shofar and you'd like to join in, they're available on eBay.)
  2. It is the new year for people... and animals and legal contracts. Technically there are four starting points in the Jewish calendar. Rosh Hashanah comes at the beginning of the month of Tishri, the seventh month, but it is the point at which the Jewish year is marked and the number of the year increases. It is the new year for people, animals and legal contracts. We are entering the year 5775 in the Jewish calendar.
  3. The exact date varies. The celebration happens on the first and second days of Tishri (usually in September or October). Observance of the day varies. Orthodox Jews will celebrate across two days, (this year from sunset on September 24, to sunset on 26), while some reformed Jews will often just celebrate one day.
  4. It's an Adam and Eve thing. At Rosh Hashanah Jews celebrate the creation of the world.
  5. It's not all 'happy'. Amid the merriment, Rosh Hashanah has a reflective note. The day before, some Jews will visit the graves of relatives or righteous people, to pray to God for a sweet new year. It is believed that the prayers are heard 'in the merit of' the righteous.
  6. There's a special moment to feed the ducks. Well, not quite. Rosh Hashanah is seen as a time to cast off sin and ask for forgiveness, which is called Tashlich. The idea is taken from Micah 7:19: "You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea." The ceremony used to be marked by emptying your pockets into the water, today it is more common to throw breadcrumbs.
  7. White as snow. To symbolise the cleansing of sin, some will wear white, and the ark hanging is also changed to white.
  8. There is good food! Despite the sombre side, no festival is complete without feasting – and this is no exception. Traditional foods include dipping apples in honey, honey cake and raisin challah bread, all symbolising the hope of a sweet new year. The challah is usually round, to represent completeness. (Again, if you want to join in, check out these recipes.)

It is a Crime to be a Christian in Pakistan: Hector Aleem

In Pakistan being Christian is a crime. If they raise voice for their rights or someone speak in their favor, their corpses will be on the road. I ask Prime Minister of Pakistan Mr. Nawaz Sharif, what will you say about Minorities in United Nations General Assembly? Are minorities living according to the charter of UN in Pakistan? That is why whoever gets a chance is fleeing from Pakistan especially Christians.

Peshawar bombing anniversary

On the anniversary of the Peshawar church bombings, the Archbishop of Canterbury has called for prayers for all those suffering under persecution around the world.
Archbishop Justin Welby, who visited Pakistan's Anglican community in May, said he has been "appalled to hear and see evidence of the hatred, violence and persecution" that Christians face across the country.
At least 119 people, including 37 children, were killed in a suicide bombing outside All Saints Church, Peshawar after a service on 22 September last year.
"Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who were bereaved and injured in these terrible attacks," the Archbishop said in a statement.
"As we have done, so must we continue to pray fervently for Jesus Christ to comfort all those whose lives were changed forever by these evil acts."
Islamic extremist group TTP Jundullah, which is linked to the Taliban, claimed responsibility for the attack. The group's spokesman, Ahmed Marwat, said: "They are the enemies of Islam, therefore we target them."
Welby said: "We must continue to pray and call for justice, and for the peace of Pakistan and the protection of Christ's people there," adding that Christians in Peshawar offered forgiveness to their oppressors in the days following the attack.
"With one year passed, we should reflect again in awe on this profound witness to Christ by our brothers and sisters in their darkest moment of suffering."
He continued: "As we reflect on the Peshawar martyrs, and their families, and all those injured in those shocking attacks, we do so knowing with deep concern that the often deadly persecution of Christians and other minorities has further escalated in many places, especially Iraq and Syria.
"We look back knowing that our prayers are needed with fresh urgency, as we cry them out to a God who shares deeply in the pain, anxiety, suffering and despair of all those persecuted for their beliefs."
The archbishop also urged Christians to "pray fervently to the God of peace and justice...that those who suffer persecution will know relief; that those who do harm will know justice; and that all people – both our friends or our enemies – will know God's peace and love in Jesus Christ."
The US Commission on International Religious Freedom recently found that violence against Christian communities in Pakistan rose substantially between June 2013 and June 2014.
The majority Muslim nation is currently eighth on Open Doors' list of countries where Christians are most violently persecuted for their faith.
According to the World Watch List, "there is a high degree of impunity regarding acts of violence against Christians" in Pakistan, and forced-conversions are not unusual."
The blasphemy laws in particular have been blamed for increasing inter-religious tensions.

Speech of Hector Aleem for minority rights

Hector Aleem's speech in "National Conference on the protection of Minorities in Pakistan: Issues, Challenges and way forward." with MNA Mr. Akram Gill and Senator Ms. Roshan Baruja etc.

Those who claim that 5% quota of government jobs for minorities was announced by a Christian Federal Minister during the tenure of PPP (2008-2013), following is the proof that Hector Aleem demanded for the 5% quota of government jobs for minorities during the Musharraf tenure and before that. This is the result of his struggle. Following is the link of the report on the conference in which the entire speech of Hector Aleem can be read (see page 17 and 18 of this report).

Appeal against Hector Aleem by Deputy Prosecutor General - Punjab

Mr. Hector Aleem Chairman Peace Worldwide was in jail due to a false blasphemy case and while he was suffering in prison some people and Pakistani organizations tried to defame him without any kind of evidence. When Hector Aleem was arrested, at the very beginning of the trial in January 2009, they started a propaganda that the charges of blasphemy are dropped but the truth is nothing like that ever happened. Blasphemy charges were only dropped in the final decision of the case. To support Muslim Fundamentalists and extremists, the Government of Punjab filed an appeal against the decision of Hector Aleem’s acquittal on government expenses, because they were against his work of human rights, religious freedom and rebuilding of Church. We remind you that no organization hired any lawyer for Mr. Hector Aleem. The only lawyer who was defending his case was Mr. Mir Muhammad Ghufran Khurshid Imtiazi Advocate Supreme Court of Pakistan. This lawyer was hired by his own family. This appeal is under process in Lahore High Court Rawalpindi Bench which means the blasphemy charges are still not dropped.


The decision given by the session judge of the trial court and the appeal against this decision are attached for your information.

Christian Students and Islamic Studies: Hector Aleem

Over the centuries people from different cultures & regions have always given more importance to the prevalent religion in that particular region at that particular time.
Christianity which has its roots in the Middle-East and South Asia was peacefully preached & practiced in Europe while Islam which too has its origins in the Middle-East found a permanent foothold in Asia & Africa. To openly claim that ones religion is superior to the other is in itself an act of blasphemy. 

Muslims live in North America, Europe, Australia and other non-Muslim countries, but never have the education system in these countries ever tried to impose an alien religious subject on their children, nor have the Muslim children ever been brainwashed into believing that their religion is inferior to those of other religions.  As a matter of fact all children in non-muslim countries are taught the importance of national unity, patriotism, love for humanity & economic development of their respective countries.

In Pakistan, since the last 67 years special emphasis is given to Islamayat (Islamic studies) in all educational institutions from primary to under-graduate level.  Diverse subject such as Mathematics, Science, Geography, History and even language subjects such as Urdu, Punjabi and Sindhi have Islamic concoction in them.  Alternative subjects such as Civics & Ethics are given little or no importance and even in these subjects, 75% teaching of Islam is present. This is well and okay if all the students in Pakistan come from Islamic backgrounds – What happens to children from Christian backgrounds? What alternative subjects are taught to them that do not include Islam? I am afraid the answer to the above two questions is not positively reassuring.

Islamic Studies is taught to Christian children from Kindergarten level and when these children reach the upper primary level, they are reasonably brainwashed by then into believing that Islam is the only superior religion and that their belief in Christ or Christianity is wrong-the Holy Bible unlike the Holy Quran has been amended and due to this fact it is no longer accurate and an inferior religion.  Teachers also coax these Christian children (05 years old and above) to renounce Christianity & embrace Islam to redeem themselves from sin and promises of a place in paradise.  Our Christian children when at home pose serious & misinterpreted questions to their parents about the activities that took place in their respective school and begin to question their faith creating an atmosphere or uncertainty, alienation & inferiority complex which later in life causes entrenched doubts about their religious convictions and even a switch to Islam, based on the earlier misinterpreted version imparted by their Islamic Studies teachers. It is no secret that these Islamic Studies teachers are in fact aggressively promoting Islam with the tacit approval of their respective educational hierarchy, which is turn are taking their instructions from the Government. Is this approach correct?

Let’s take another example.  There was a hue & cry in France about the issue of Muslim female students not allowed to wear the scarf while in School.  The Government of France made it amply clear that all students in France must follow rules & regulations and that the dress code did not include religious insignia or restrictions.  The point is that Muslim prefers to adhere to their religious values in non-muslim countries but force Islamic value to non-Muslims in their own countries. Why the double standard? Can Pakistani Government justifiably prove that Islam is in fact more superior to other religion? Pakistani print and electronic media always claim that the Holy Quran explicitly forbids Muslims from discriminating against other religions. Why then the unnecessary discrimination? Pakistani Government boast about the rising number of converts to Islam but in reality, other religions are not allowed to flourish, instead other religions are demonized here. Pakistani government never provides a level playing field and usually resorts to unethical & provocative methods to inflict physiological torture on Christians. 

Religion can never be forced onto others, Christians in Pakistan are guaranteed religious freedom both by the Constitution of Pakistan as well as the United Nations (Pakistan is a veteran member of the United Nations) but this guarantee only exists on paper – the reverse is actually applicable.

To compound problems Islamic studies is taught in the Arabic language – once again an alien and irrelevant language both for Muslim & Christian students alike, whom face extreme difficulty in comprehending this language.  Then there are a few schools that teach Civics or Ethics instead of Islamic Studies but it becomes difficult for children whom are studying these particular subjects to successfully pass their examinations.  This is another hand twisting methods adopted by the educators into compelling students from opting out of Civics/Ethics in favor of Islamic Studies. 

Interestingly enough Christian students, who complete Islamic Studies examinations, are given good grades, even though they may not have made a serious attempt to pass.

I strongly urge the Government of Pakistan both at Federal & Provincial level to cease teaching Islamic Studies to Christians; instead appoint teachers from Christian background to teach Holy Bible to Christian students.   This will improve the unemployment situation for the Christians, create an atmosphere of tolerance & brotherhood and will give Christians a sense of security- sorely missing in Pakistan.

Pakistani Christians applaud the Government into allowing Aga Khan Board to be established; similarly I recommend that a Christian Board too be created to facilitate children from Christian background.  
Forcibly eradicating other religious values & beliefs will only create an atmosphere of distrust, contempt, intolerance, discrimination & loss of self-esteem, a situation currently in existence in Pakistan.  Wake up Government of Pakistan before it is too late.

Hector Aleem writes about hidden agenda of ISI

Pakistan convened a grand conference of mainstream political parties to evolve consensus on national security policy and discuss proposal for talks with Taliban insurgents but what is the real agenda behind this conference? Agenda of the meeting was to bring peace and harmony in Pakistan and get rid of extremism and terrorism.

The resolution also states that “The Federal Government should consider the possibility of taking the drone issue to the United Nation as drone attacks are a violation of International Law. They also declared that we shall ourselves determine the means and mode of fighting this war in our national interest and shall not be guided by the United States of America or any other country in this regard” but the hidden agenda of ISI is to stop drone attacks and to have a complete hold on Afghanistan through Talibans.

ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence) and Pakistani politicians have a history of supporting and encouraging Talibans and other terrorist organizations. For example Khalid Khwaja an ISI officer in 1988 said in an interview to Asia Times Online that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif met Al Qaida Chief Osama Bin Laden thrice in Saudi Arabia. As per Khalid Khwaja’s Statement, he also stated “I joined my former Director General of ISI Gen Hameed Gull and played a role in forming the then Islamic Democratic Alliance consisting of the Pakistan Muslim League and the Jamaat-e-Islami.


Pakistan has been supporting Talibans and terrorism through ISI. The Generals and Chiefs of ISI are in constant connection with terrorists. The real agenda behind this conference is to empower and protect Talibans and to promote Talibanisation and Islamisation through Parliament of Pakistan, the statement of Khalid Khwaja and involvement of Nawaz Sharif in pro Taliban activities are examples of mind-sets of Pakistanis.

Other Politicians don’t need any introduction, e.g. Maulana Fazl ur Rehman and Maulana Sami Ul Haq are proud of recruiting Talibans in Pakistan. Hundreds of people including these politicians have performed Osama Bin Laden’s funeral prayers. They still address Osama Bin Laden as a Martyr.  Statements of Imran Khan and his Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) that all sanitation jobs should be given to the Christians shows their hate for Christians in Pakistan. Chief Minister of KPK Pervez Khatak further mentioned “the reason for this decision is because Muslims are holy and superior nation and Christians are untouchables and hateful Minority, that is why Muslims cannot do sanitation jobs and Christians on the other hand who are untouchables are perfect for that kind of job.” During a debate on budget in National Assembly, a parliament member of Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf, Mr. Mujahid Ali Khan, demanded for the release of Mumtaz Qadri (the man who gunned down Governor of Punjab Mr. Salman Taseer just because he was supporting Asia Bibi who is facing death penalty in Jail due to a false blasphemy case). These are the prominent examples of Imran Khan’s hate for Christians and his discriminatory and pro-Taliban mind-set. Imran Khan is in fact a reincarnation of Osama Bin Laden or Osama Bin Laden in disguise.

About the mind sets; let’s have a look at another example, few days back, intelligence personnel of Pakistan arrested a student of Punjab University; who was found to be affiliated with Al Qaeda and eight more students have been arrested on the information provided by the detained. This is another example of Taliban mind set of a normal student studying in a university. Mullah Baradar who is a high commander of Taliban is soon going to be released by the Government of Pakistan. Talibans are continuing their activities in Pakistan. Shahid Ullah Shahid, spokesman of Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan (Taliban Movement Pakistan) welcomes the joint decision of All Party Conference which supported and agreed on dialogues with Taliban.

Pakistan is a country which is hungry for power since its inception. It wants to be the leader or the super power of South Asian region. Unfortunately, it’s the only Muslim nuclear power in the world and this makes it even famish for power. APC is Government of Pakistan’s step to strengthen Taliban and generate its power in the region.

89% Pakistanis support Talibans but the Government of Pakistan is afraid of international community that is why they are creating the drama of dialogue with Talibans but in reality, they are giving them license to kill which will impose Talibanisation in Pakistan and will make it a complete terrorist and Taliban state.

NOTE:

This article was written by Hector Aleem in 2013 when the government of Nawaz Sharif (the ruling prime minister of Pakistan) held an All Party Conference by inviting all political parties of Pakistan for dialogues with Taliban. This proves that 89% population of Pakistan is pro-Taliban, that ISI promotes Islamisation and Talibanisation and guides all parties and encourages them to support Taliban. In other words, ISI is ruling all over Pakistan.

Views of Hector Aleem about SP. Singha

During the British rule of India, British Government sent Sir. Stafford Cripps (head of Cripps Mission) to India with his delegation. In that plan India was offered with a plan of independence.
Punjab Province was the biggest province of India, in the East of that Province Hindus and Sikhs were in majority so according to the plan that part was to be annexed with present day India. In the western part of Punjab, Muslims were in majority so that part was to be given to Pakistan. And from Lahore City to River Jehelum (present day Punjab, Pakistan) Christians were in majority, so according to the plan this part of Punjab province was to be given to Christians so that they can create their own separate Christian Country.
Punjab Assembly at that time voted on the plan, some members of the assembly supported going with India and some members supported with going to Pakistan. There were also Christian members of Punjab Assembly and at that time the speaker of the Punjab assembly was also a Christian whose name was SP.Singha. SP.Singha supported Pakistan and he also made other Christian members of Punjab Assembly to vote for Pakistan. So the Christian part of Punjab was also annexed with Pakistan due to the votes of SP.Singha and his other fellow Christian members of assembly.
At that time that was considered a vote for freedom but now after 67 years, Christians must decide….was it a vote for freedom or slavery? Implementing of Martial Law by dictator Ayub Khan 1958. Mrs.Singha left Pakistan and lived her life with her daughter in India.

Written by Hector Aleem "Christian Genocide in Pakistan"


In 1947, Christian leaders were influenced by the false promises of Quaid e Azam. SP Singha (the Christian leader) of that time voted for Pakistan, that vote was not for freedom, that vote was for slavery and bonded labor. 14 August 1947 is not the day of freedom for Christians, it is the day of slavery and bonded labor. Christians are already been tortured in Pakistan but other minorities like Hindus etc are also not spared. Pakistanis kidnap and forcibly marry the girls of minorities in Pakistan, the case of Rinkal Kumari is an example in this matter. Chief Justice of Supreme Court of Pakistan also gave decision in the favor of kidnappers. What will happen to people when the Chief Justice of a Country is unjust?

Christianity is the largest minority in Pakistan but besides being the largest number of minority, they are also the largest number of persecuted nation in Pakistan. There are lots of examples of Christian persecution since the inception of Pakistan.

Today, Pakistani Christians are regularly jailed, persecuted and even sentenced in false blasphemy cases. Pakistani fundamentalists are cutting the necks of Christians like street dogs, raping and abducting Christian girls. Shame on recent parliamentarians like Tahir Khalil Sandhoo and Kamran Michael who are enjoying the ministry with the ruling government, if they care even a little about their nation they should resign immediately and start working for Christians.

The recent case of Shafqat Masih is the worst example of blasphemy cases lodged against Christians because his whole family is in custody of the police and they have been shifted far away from their home city. This is the same case in which I was trapped and had to spend four years in prison for this offence. No Christian is such fool to send a blasphemous message to any Muslim cleric especially when they know the consequences, also, every Christian parent teaches their children not to involve their selves in any anti-Islamic activity.

There are no organizations especially Christian NGOs who are helping these victims of blasphemy instead they depends upon the local NGOs who do nothing but provides false news to the international media, normally all these organizations are the agents of the government of Pakistan who provides news according to the guidance of the Government of Pakistan.

Peace Worldwide condemns the misuse of blasphemy law in Pakistan because it is creating hate and inferiority complex in the minds of Pakistani Christians, the government, the secret agencies and courts are silent when several innocent Christians are facing persecution due to blasphemy law.

Pakistan should stop genocide of Christians of Pakistan. Or else a time will come when Christians of Pakistan will consider Pakistan their enemy and will rebel against it because same concept of two nation theory applies here.

Hector Aleem and his family were persecuted in the worst possible way

This is the letter which was issued by the Government of Pakistan. The wife of Mr. Hector Aleem (Human Rights Activist) submitted an application to Human Rights Ministry of Pakistan. After which they issued this letter just for a formality. In this letter, the Federal Minister of Human Rights ordered the Inspector General of Police to solve the matter within three days but Hector Aleem and his family were tortured for four years. In fact, when the police saw this letter, they tortured Hector Aleem and his family even more. This is the worst way a Human Rights Activist and his family are treated. Christians in Pakistan are number one in regards of persecution.

Hector Aleem describes two nation theory in Pakistan

Before the arrival of Islam in the subcontinent, nations living there like Christians, Buddhists and Hindus were living peacefully, then came the robbers and thugs like Mohammad Bin Qasim, Mehmood Ghaznavi and others from Afghanistan and Middle East, who disturbed those peaceful people and demolished and ruined their worship places. Pakistani Muslims of today still read those awful deeds of their ancestors with fun and tell these stories to children proudly and now have named their nuclear missiles on the names of these terrorists and thugs. Then came the British, who ruled this region for many years, Muslims of that time raised their voice for two nation theory and describing it as that they have different dresses and different religion from Hindus. But the Christians of this region have been facing discrimination since the arrival of Muslims in this continent because the real enemy of Christians are Muslims not Hindus since the arrival of Islam. Their history is full of killing Christians and Jews when Islam spreaded.  When Muslims arrived in subcontinent, they followed the same path of their ancestors and targeted Christians of the region. Muslims are targeting Christians all over the world whether they are in a Muslim country or a non-Muslim country. Where Islam is dominant (as in the Middle East and Pakistan) religious minorities suffer brutal persecution with little resistance. Where Islam is in the minority (as in Thailand, the Philippines and Europe) there is the threat of violence if Muslim demands are not met.  Either situation seems to provide a justification for religious terrorism, which is persistent and endemic to Islamic fundamentalism.

Pakistani Christians are very peaceful nation and they waited for 67 years for their right of free speech and freedom to practice their religion but they are never allowed to do so in Pakistan. Two Nation theory applies here because Christians have everything different with Muslims. Christians, Jews and Muslims are called Abrahamic religions but Muslims created the difference by calling God, Allah and it is forbidden for many non-Muslims in Muslims countries to call Allah as their God. This is the biggest difference they have created. Muslims only had differences of dress and religion with the Hindus but Christians have difference of religion, culture, language, customs, dresses and everything with the Muslims. According to our Christian faith, Jesus Christ is the son of God, Christianity is based on it, and we believe that God gave all His powers to Jesus Christ, this is our faith and after Jesus Christ no prophet is required. We have been hearing that Islam spread through sword, and it is still happening in Pakistan, I have witnessed what they do to Christians of Pakistan, Christians are forcibly made to accept the Muslim Prophet as their last prophet, they are forced to renounce their religion and faith and practice the Christianity according to Islam. We are forced to accept Prophet Mohammad as our last prophet and our Christian girls are forced to cover their heads during the recitation of Quranic verses and Azan in every part of Pakistan. During these 67 years, Christians of Pakistan have faced the worst examples of discrimination. It is now time that Christians should rise against this discrimination because it is unbearable when we see our Christian girls and women being raped and kidnapped and when the judge gives the decision in favour of the rapist and kidnappers by keeping discrimination and prejudice in his mind. In blasphemy cases, one can experience the worst example of discrimination and torture in prison during this case. I, myself have been the victim of this discriminatory law and experienced and eye witnessed worst form of torture that is impossible for me to explain. The First Information Report (FIR) of a blasphemy case can be lodged on oral statement and no official investigate the case before lodging the FIR. It is required that the plaintiff should be a Muslim and the officials trust him blindly, the accused is than brought in front of the plaintiff and clerics by the police officers and they torture him in front of his plaintiffs and others. The lawyers boycott the accused and no one takes his/her case and leaves the accused alone. It is essential that the judge who is dealing the blasphemy case should be a Muslim and when the accused is produced before the court, the first question of the judge is “Why did you do it” no one asks him if he really does it? In the result, the victim losses his family, house, relatives, respect and friends and during or before the trail he gets killed by the police or inmates. Same is in the education system; the teachers are discriminative towards the Christian students. From the very first day of school, Christian child starts to hear that Christianity is a false religion and that they should accept Islam if they want to go to Heaven. Christians never get any key post in police and district management.

Now let’s talk about Politicians of Pakistan, we all know about Fazal ur Rehman who recruited many Talibans. Chairman of Council of Islamic Ideology (Islami Nazriati Council) is Maulana Sharani of JUI (F) (Jamiat Ullema Islam – Fazal ur Rehman), the same maulana who criticised a Christian MNA (Member of National Assembly) Tariq.C.Qaiser, who recited “in the name Our Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit” in National Assembly though Tariq C Qaiser was reciting it as his own faith. After that they tormented and harassed him that much that he had to flee the country. Politicians like Imran Khan and Maulana Fazal Ur Rehman talks against Christianity bravely and proudly without any hesitation and give statements in favour of Talibans. When any terrorist attack or a blast occurs in Christian enclaves or Church we hear only one statement from President to MNAs (Member of National Assembly) that no Muslim can do this it is an act of enemies of Islam. Same is with print and electronic media of Pakistan; they keep disgracing Christianity and spread false news and hateful material about Christianity.

In the end I would like to say that Christians have not arrived in this region from USA or Europe they are the indigenous people of this region, but Muslims of Pakistan proudly tells about their ancestors as Sherazi from Sheraz, Bukhari from Bukhara, Qureshi from the Quresh tribe of Arab and etc. We the Christians of Pakistan are keeping our eyes on the international community and organisations like United Nations and Commonwealth to promote us because no one is helping us. Real Two Nation theory applies here in Pakistan, we want our separate homeland where we will be able to preach and practice our religion freely and openly. My article should not be made as a base of a separate homeland for Muslims living in USA or Europe because they have in migrated here from Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan and other Muslim countries but we are the indigenous people of subcontinent and we have the right to demand for our own homeland but Muslims of USA and Europe doesn’t. Also Muslims in Europe and USA are enjoying freedom and equal rights but on the other hand Christians of Pakistan are suffering torture, discrimination and extinction. It is our right for a separate Christian homeland in Pakistan.
