On September 14,2012 relative of Muneeza, Rana Ishfaq called Nazir Masih,his brother Rehamat Masih and his nephew Shaukat Masiha and Shahzad Masih on his residence in the same village Chack 38 southern Sargodha for the resolution of this dispute and said them to bring blank stamp paper for an treaty among two parties. So when Nazir Masih and Rehmat Masih requested two respected men of Christian community in their village name Barkat Masih and Arshad Masih reached at Rana Ishfaq’s residence where Rana Ishfaq, Rana Sammi Ullah,Rana Javed,Rana Atta Ullah, Rana Rizwan and others were waiting for them carrying heavy  weapons. Rana Javed forcefully took the blank stamp papers from Nazir Masih and his fellows and other armed men at Rana Ishfaq’s residence threaten them and aggressively took  signature and thumb impression of Nazir Masih, Rehmat Masih,Barkat Masih and ex-general counselor Arshad Masih on a plain stamp paper . When these Christian men were leaving Rana Ishfaq’s residence,  armed men hinder them and said , you cannot go till  you return our girl Muneeza. After many hours’ plea and request of these poor Christians they were allowed to depart from there but on the same evening Rana Ishafaq and others attacked these four Christian houses and cast out Nazir Masih,Rehmat Masih,Shaukat Masih and Shahzad Masih along with their women and children from village forcefully.
Indrias Masih  a representative of Human Liberation Commission Pakistan Sargodha reported this incident through telephone to Chairman HLCP Aslam Pervaiz Sahotra and told the whole happening next day morning. On 16 September 2012 Indrias Masih brought Nazir Masih and Rehmat Masih to HLCP office 8 Davis Road Lahore where Nazir Masih explained the whole story of this incident to Chairman HLCP Aslam Pervaiz Sahotra,Director International Affairs Pastor Anwar Javed and to HLCP Legal team. Therefore HLCP legal team wrote an application against this prejudice of Muneeza’s relatives  with oppressed Christians Nazir Masih and others so application were submitted to SHO Police Station Karrana and to DPO Sargodha but nothing is acted by police on this application till date.
Muneeza who was an single girl ,married willing fully with Ansar Masih  after accepting Christianity as her religion, which is not welcomed by her Muslims parents at all but they assumed it an act of disgrace of religion Islam, as a result they registered a false case of kidnapping against Ansar Masih and his family with an accusation that Muneeza was already married with his cousin Yasir Amin S/O Muhammad Amin ,so Yasir Amin registered a false case that his wife Muneeza is kidnapped by Ansar Masih his sisters Samina and Rozina and by his old father Nazir Masih. Consequently Muneeza gave her personal statement in front of Special Judicial Magistrate Lahore District Courts stating that she was single and she is not kidnapped at all but now she has converted from Islam to Christianity ,  she married willing fully with Ansar Masih as a Christian girl.

In the intervening time somebody in neighbors made phone call to 15 emergency police that urgently reached at crime scene, so they arrested both parties and took them to Police Station Mustafa Abad, Lahore. SHO Mustafa Abad Police Station and SI Muhammad Hayat spared the offenders Collusively and expelled poor Ansar Masih while Police and Offender party Rana Ishfaq and others continued to exhort Muneeza to acquire divorce from her husband Ansar Masih but Muneeza replied refusing them that “I can not leave Ansar Masih because  I loves him deeply ,I am converted from Islam to Christianity  and now I am  expecting a child from Ansar Masih. I am a Christian girl and wife of a Christian man, so I reject divorce neither I am ready to go with you people.” After a while, Rana Sammi Ullah went to Ansar’s detention room and threaten him to divorce Muneeza otherwise you both and your relatives and NGO people helping you will not be spared at all. Second day police released offenders Rana Sammi Ullah and others who attempted to kidnap Ansar Masih and Muneeza , they were sent out of Police Station without any legal action or apprehension bout poor Ansar Masih remained detain and his wife Muneeza also remained in police custody who took their signatures on a blank stamp paper forcefully at their denial.
Later on HLCP official Bashir Chaudhry ,Aftab Gill including HLCP women wing leaders Ms.Rozi and Ms.Sheba went to Police Station Mustafa Abad and negotiate to Police for releasing  Ansar Masih and his wife Muneeza. When Ansar Masih and Muneeza reported HLCP officials the whole occurrence and told that about how Police took their signatures forcefully, HLCP filed application from Ansar Masih of this whole criminal act of kidnapping his family against offenders Rana Sammi Ullah and others including against Police SHO Mustafaabad Lahore  Mumtaz Kakar to SP Civil line Division Lahore but unfortunately no action was taken by SP Office, so another application was filed from Ansar Masih to Chief Capital Police Officer Lahore Mr.Shafiq in this regards. No action has been taken till date against kidnappers neither against nominated police official who did this oppression on Ansar Masih and on his wife Muneeza in this whole episode of injustice.

‘No compulsion in religion’:

‘One should be able to choose their religion’

 

Human Liberation Commission of Pakistan chairman Aslam Parvaiz Sahotra, said Muslim scholars should issue an edict against such hardliners who are “bringing a bad name to Islam”. He said no one could be forced to embrace Islam.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sahotra said that employers also often victimised their

servants through criminal proceedings. “They lodge

cases against their maids when they demand their

wages or their due rights,

 

Speaking at the service on Sunday, HLCP Chairman Aslam Pervez Sahotra said that women and children workers were being exploited and subjected to physical, mental and sexual abuse by their employers. He said children were being sold to work in big houses.

Sahotra said that employers also often victimised their servants through criminal proceedings. “They lodge cases against their maids when they demand their wages or their due rights,”

 

 

 

 

Minorities in Pakistan were not safe and regularly

suffered discrimination.

 

 

No one has ever been punished for attacks on Christian places of worship

Lahore: Almost 7 years ago, a mob of people angry at alleged blasphemy by a Christian burnt down three churches, a convent, a missionary school, a girl's hostel and a pastor's house in Sangla Hill, a small town in Nankana District, near Lahore.

 

 

 

 

 

They carried crosses and banners demanding that the

blasphemy laws be repealed and Aasia Bibi be

released from death row.

Chairman of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan, said that clerics should not be allowed to schedule protests during the celebration of Christmas and other religious holidays.

Aslam Parvaiz Sahotra, president of the Masiha Milan Party, said that Christians had a right to protest and the government must ensure that this right is not usurped by religious extremists. “Were it not for the police, the TNR protestors would have pounced on us,” he said. He said the Christians’ protest was meant to be a response to the rallies in favour of the blasphemy laws, which he believed were meant to “ruin” the celebration of Christmas.

 

 

Muslims or Christians or whatever religion,

nothing is above humanity.

Human Liberation Commission has raised a voice for the affected couple, the matter has brought to public notice the ever-needed necessity of tolerance in order for justice to prevail. In many Muslim-dominated societies, people are always welcome to convert from other religions to Islam. But when they leave Islam and embrace another faith, they are labeled as apostates and hunted or persecuted.

 

 

Constitution of Pakistan everyone has the right to live

wherever they want.

 

Human Liberation Commission head Aslam Parvaiz Sahotra condemned the couples’ eviction and said that according to the Constitution of Pakistan everyone has the right to live wherever they want.
He appealed to Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif and Punjab Governor Sardar Latif Khan Khosa to take notice of the matter and provide security to both couples.

Human Liberation Commission of Pakistan (HLCP), an NGO, offered to help them with accommodation and legal expertise. HLCP president Aslam Pervez said the family would be safer staying outside the Press Club.
