Three Christian women, Ms. Arshad Bibi, Ms.Sajida Bibi and Ms.Sauriya Bibi, the daughter-in-laws of a Christian, Mr. Sadiq Masih, a resident of village Sereser Chak No.21 Kasur, a district of Punjab, were brutally beaten and then paraded naked by armed men employed by Muhammad Munir the son of Abdul Rasheed, a landlord that has the support of the ruling party, PML-N. The incident occurred on the night of June 3 after 11 pm when the male members of the family were attending to their jobs. The men, armed with weapons and sticks, were able to enter the house by scaling the boundary wall and unlocking the gate from the inside. At that time the women were sleeping in the house along with their in-laws Sadiq Masih (73) (father-in-law) and Ms. Rani Bibi (70) (mother-in-law).

The mob, lead by Muhammad Munir along with others, Abrahim, Muhammad Rafique and their sons, Ahmed, Asif, Abid, Wassem, Waqas and Shabir and three more unknown persons, entered the house. When the attackers invaded the house they started looking for the sons of Sadiq Masih, checking all the rooms and throwing their belongings about. When they could not find his sons they started beating the daughters-in-law.

The party workers then took the three Christian women out into the street where the lights were on and tore their clothes off. They then started shouting to attract the attention of the people nearby to let them see the extent of the revenge and power of the landlord. Nobody dared to stop them as the attackers were holding weapons. Due to the victim’s screaming and shouting some elderly people of the village came out and put their turbans on the feet of the attackers as a sign of high respect and honour. After this the attackers released the women but threatened the villagers that if they complained about the incident they will face more trouble.

While this was going on somebody called ’15’, the number of the Police Emergency Center and after much time the officers arrived. Rather than take action against the attackers the police tried to calm down the mob which was protesting against the incident.

The cause of the incident was apparently that on two occasions some goats belonging to the Christians had entered the fields of the landlord, Munir, who claimed that they had damaged his crops. As the goats belonged to the Christians Munir confiscated them.

On the morning of the incident Mr. Shaukat the son of Sadiq Masih approached Munir in the company of his sisters-in–law and requested him to release their goats. Munir refused to do so and stared beating him. Munir slaped him many times across the face and cursed him. When Shoukat, in retaliation, slapped him back Munir became furious and threatened him, demanding to know, “How dare a Christian slap him and he has to face the consequences”. It was this incident that lead to the revenge attack. At this time they also injured Mr. Sadiq Masih who received several injuries to his leg.

Comments : At first people need to realize no religion has taught mankind to treat and degrade people in this manner. People should not see this as the minority sect being oppressed but seeing it as individuals being oppressed in a society, various calamities have occurred of similar kind. People need to learn, respect and love each other . Not hurt , humiliate and kill each other.

To conclude in Islam this is not how it is preached and treat your neighbours  .

These people have acted based  on their desires and should be punished accordingly. We should seek justice for these women and their relatives who have been harmed. So future issues like these don’t arise in Pakistan or else where in the name of religion , caste, colour or whatsoever.

Thanks
