A Christian killed for his faith


A Christian killed for his faith


Xavier William

Younas Masih 55, a resident of Chaman, Baluchistan Province was shoot 5 times by un-identified men on 31st January while returning home. His condition was very critical, he passed away on Monday afternoon.

According to the details, Masih worked at a local company in Chaman, he was very honest and firm in his faith and was actively involved in the Church activities.

Masih was asked by his colleagues to embrace Islam, but he refused and stood firm in his belief. He tried to ignore the heated conversations with his colleagues. He was threatened of dire consequences.

He had a heated discussion with his colleagues on this matter, on 31st January Masih was returning home, he was stopped and shot 5 times. He was rushed to the hospital in a critical condition.

The doctors operated and took out the 5 bullets and shifted him to the ICU ( Intensive Care Unit). He remained unconscious for 3 days, Masih`s son tried to reach the police, but they refused to register the FIR for the incident.

Despite several attempts the police department refused to comment or even look into the matter.

Monday afternoon Younis Masih passed away in the hospital. His wife has been unconscious and the family is devastated on Masih`s death.

Human Rights organization Life for All condemned the incident and demanded immediate action in the matter. We question the scornful attitude of the authorities. The year 2012 was a worst year for the minorities in Pakistan. They were deprived of the their rights and discriminated at various levels.

This is really tragic, it broke my heart to know that an innocent has been killed for his faith. They threatened him various times and the most devastating behavior of the concerned authorities. Specially the police reacted in a very insensitive way, we demand protection of lives and properties of the minorities in Pakistan. The authorities must ensure that the basic rights of the minorities ate safe guarded.
