Pakistan’s Unwilling Converts

Pages: 1 2

On August 17, 2011, Mehek Rashid, a 14-year-old Pakistani Christian girl was kidnapped at gunpoint in broad daylight in the Pakistan city of Gujranwala by a gang of five armed Muslim men. As she was thrown into a waiting car, one of her abductors yelled out to the on looking crowd that he would “purify” Mehek before making her his “mistress.”

Unluckily for Mehek and her family, the kidnappers hailed from a prominent Muslim family, which prompted local Pakistani authorities to refuse to investigate the case.

Tragically, Mehek Rashid’s abduction and the corresponding indifference displayed by Pakistan’s judicial authorities are an all too familiar occurrence in Pakistan, one in which a growing legion of young Christian girls are kidnapped, forced to marry their Muslim abductors and convert to Islam.

In fact, it is estimated that over 700 Christian girls suffer this terrible fate every year in Pakistan, with the vast majority of incidents occurring in Pakistan’s Punjab province.

In many instances, the forced marriages and conversions are carried out by powerful and influential Muslim families who threaten and severely beat the young girls into verifying their compliance if questioned by local authorities.

This type of physical coercion occurred in the case of Farah Hatim, a young Catholic girl from Punjab, who was kidnapped in May 2011 by three Muslim men and forced to marry one of her abductors before then being compelled to convert to Islam.

Unfortunately for Farah, a Pakistani court closed her case by citing a written statement by Farah that said she had willingly married and converted to Islam, an admission Farah’s parents claimed was given under duress and torture.

According to Farah’s mother, the Muslim family involved in the case has a history of kidnapping young Christian women and forcing them to convert, but they remain immune to prosecution as they are backed by a local representative of Pakistan’s ruling party.

Sadly, these abductors have little need to take the added step of forcing compliance from their victims, given Pakistan’s legal entities are themselves either bribed to turn a blind eye to the situation or have no moral qualms about the practice.

This fact was aptly demonstrated in the case of two Christian sisters from Punjab, Rebecca Masih and Saima Masih, who in May 2011 were kidnapped, raped and forced to convert to Islam by a gang of Muslim men. The kidnappers had been hired by a wealthy local Muslim businessman who himself forcefully married Saima Masih the day after her kidnapping. When Saima’s father reported the case to local police, he was told simply to “forget his daughters.”

Moreover, Pakistan’s legal authorities even go to more proactive lengths to shield the perpetrators of these crimes. Khalid Gill, Chief Organizer for All Pakistan Minorities Alliance (APMA) has claimed police often delay investigations until after abducted women get pregnant, after which legally it is nearly impossible for courts to release them from their captors.

The end result is that these young girls often never return to their families unless they are lucky enough to escape their captors. Unsurprisingly, escape doesn’t mean that the perpetrators of the crimes will face any kind of judicial punishment.

The Centre for Legal Assistance and Settlement (CLAAS), which takes care of legal assistance for Pakistani Christians, has reported several disturbing cases of girls who escaped their captors, only to discover no charges were filed against their kidnappers.

    We are constantly reminded that the majority of muslims are "moderate". So why don't the moderate muslims who ave the vast majority, we are told, stop these atrocities and punish the small number of muslims who rape, kidnap and convert these girls to islam? It's because the quran encourages forcable conversion to islam. It's not against sharia law to foceably convert an infidel to islam. It's not a crime to the "moderate muslims", because the rapists are actually doing it for allah and it's ok to do thise to Christian girls. The bottom line is there are no "moderate muslims", all muslims adhere to sharia law and they put sharia law above our Constitution. Our leaders have turned America into a nation of fools who have been indoctrinated to accept their stupid intertretaion of our Constitution. The leaders of our political system in both democrat and republican parties must be run out of office and replaced with non career politicians. And it better happen soon or western culture and values is doomed.

  • LindaRivera

    Founder of Islam, Mohammad, was a HUGE slave trader and is considered by Muslims who follow their religion, to be the perfect man and role model. That is why Christian, Hindu and other non-Muslim young women are constantly kidnapped by ruthless Muslims.

    • Junaid

      Let me clarify some things about Islam so there are comments here based on incorrect information;

      Islam or Quran does not force conversions in fact it is clearly stated in Quran "there is no compulsion in religion". The acts of some muslims cannot and should not be blamed on the religion itself.

      Also, prophet Muhammad was not a slave trader and not only encouraged but actively freed many many slaves (men and women) during his time. To free a slave is one of the highest ranking good deeds.

      I encourage you to just read Quran and decide for yourself.

      The incidences listed in this article are deplorable and must be condemned by all. The issue is with some of the feudal and illiterate elements of the Pakistani society and not Islam.

      • NotMyProphet

        Here's a quote from an article in the Middle East Forum by Raymond Ibrahim.

        "Muslim scholar Majid Khadduri's thoughts on the matter [of sex slavery in Islam]:

        The term spoil (ghanima) is applied specifically to property acquired by force from non-Muslims. It includes, however, not only property (movable and immovable) but also persons, whether in the capacity of asra (prisoners of war) or sabi (women and children). … If the slave were a woman, the master was permitted to have sexual connection with her as a concubine."

        Here is the Qur'an quote to which this Islamic scholar is referring:
        sura 8 v. 1

        They ask thee concerning (things taken as) spoils of war. Say:
        "(such) spoils are at the disposal of Allah and the Messenger: So fear
        Allah, and keep straight the relations between yourselves: Obey Allah
        and His Messenger, if ye do believe."

        Also, sura 8 v. 67

        It is not fitting for a prophet that he should have prisoners of war
        until he hath thoroughly subdued the land. Ye look for the temporal
        goods of this world; but Allah looketh to the Hereafter: And Allah is
        Exalted in might, Wise.

        I would say that Pakistan would be considered "thoroughly subdued" and therefore it's non-Muslim population subject to "prisoner of war" status. Which is exactly how the young non-Muslim females in Pakistan are being treated by the Muslim population. It also sounds to me like the Muslim men in Pakistan clearly understand their religion and are honoring the example of their "exalted" prophet Muhammad.

      • Jaladhi

        Yeah right, Quran says there is no compulsion in religion!! That is why it also says" kill those who leave Islam"!!! And the followers of your ROP(religion of peace) always manage to kill apostates. Read your Quran and don't believe you imams who feed you all kind of lies about Mo/allah. Read hadiths and sira to know the truth about life your perfect man Mo/allah. You will come to the conclusion he was the worst criminal that world has ever seen. He looted, murdered, raped, had incestuous relation, pedophile(marrying a six year old Ayesha and sex with her when she was nine and he was 53 years dirty old man). For that act alone he will be thrown in jail today and will never be allowed to come out . And his god allah who was always present with him condoned all of his criminal acts. What kind of god is allah?? What do you think – is allah any god or allah is Mo's alter ego. So Mo himself is your god – Mo/allah.

        Find out the truth about Mo/allah right from your Islamic sources, Sahih bukhari, etc and then judge for yourself. My question to you: if Mo is your ideal man to be followed, how many criminal acts of his life are your willing to emulate? In truth many Muslims just do that and the rest of the Muslim population never ever condemns those action!!

        Open your eyes and mind, learn the truth about Islam. Leave Islam and be free again!1

      • ObamaYoMoma

        Islam or Quran does not force conversions in fact it is clearly stated in Quran "there is no compulsion in religion".

        Have you ever heard of the doctrine of abrogation, which is accepted by all schools of Islamic jurisprudence and by all sects within Sunni and Shi'a Islam, and which holds that when verses of the Koran come into conflict, the latter issued verses of the Koran abrogate, i.e., supersede and replace, the earlier issued verses? Apparently not.

        Indeed, that “no compulsion in religion” Koranic verse that you cited like a loon is an early Meccan verse, which was long ago abrogated by the latter issued Medinan verses, that makes it an obligatory duty in Islam for ALL MUSLIMS to fight jihad against unbelievers in the cause of Allah to make Islam supreme. In fact, the early peaceful Meccan verses of the Koran that originate from the time when Islam was still a peaceful religion before the Hijra and that have also been abrogated are the same exact verses that deceptive Muslims love to cite to dupe gullible useful idiot kafir infidels exactly like you. Congratulations…you couldn't be more gullible or more dumb.

        The acts of some muslims cannot and should not be blamed on the religion itself.

        In other words, like an unhinged loon you believe in the political correct myth that Islam is a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists, which is demonstrably false.

        For instance, if Islam is a Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists, then why are all Christians and all other non-Muslim unbelievers living in all Islamic countries without exception violently oppressed and systematically persecuted when not outright slaughtered altogether? Is that the way that peaceful and moderate people act according to you delusional leftists? Indeed, why are all you delusional leftists so narrow-minded that you're all oblivious to the existing conditions in Muslim countries?

        Indeed, if Islam is a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists, then why like clockwork in country after country where mass Muslim immigration is currently taking place in the West and in other non-Muslim countries as well, do the vast overwhelming majority of the Muslim immigrants flat our refuse to assimilate and integrate and instead form segregated Muslim no-go zones ruled by Sharia and in direct contravention to the laws of the states in which they reside? In fact, in France alone the government has already identified 758 such Muslim no-go zones in the case like most delusional leftists you want to deny the undeniable.

        Not to mention also that the history of Islam is nothing but the history of jihad warfare against non-Muslim unbelievers and the subsequent harsh and degrading institution of Dhimmitude, which puts to lie the notion that there is no compulsion in religion, as the entire purpose of harsh and degrading dhimmitude is to make life so miserable for subjugated dhimmis (non-Muslims living under Islamic rule) that they have no other choice but to convert to Islam. Indeed, it is the sole reason those Christians and other non-Muslim unbelievers living in Pakistan as dhimmis today are so violently oppressed and systematically persecuted exactly the same way it is also happening in every Islamic country in the world.

        • Abushuaib

          The verse in the Quran "There is no compulsion in religion" was revealed when the Prophet (may God's peace and blessing be upon him) was living in Madinah so it is a late verse and was not abrogated. Is in general in meaning and so still applies. It was not revealed in Makkah as you tried to indicate!

          • ObamaYoMoma

            "Let there be no compulsion in religion; truth stands out clear from error" (Sura 2.256).

            Apologists for Islam often quote this verse, and most Westerners, unfamiliar with the Koran and imagining that it must obey the same theological logic as the Christian Bible, assume that Islamic scripture mandates religious toleration toward non-Muslims. That assumption is inaccurate.

            The Koran includes many abrogated verses, called mansukh, and abrogating verses, nasikh; the latter cancel the former, rendering them invalid, though they nevertheless remain in the Koran and are deceptively quoted, for Western consumption, as though they still represented genuine Islamic beliefs. Nasikh and mansukh are legion: Of the Koran's 114 suras (chapters), only 43 are without abrogated or abrogating verses. That is naturally surprising, and so unexpected that few Westerners are aware that significant segments of the Koran have been theologically annulled. Mohammed's non-Muslim contemporaries were just as surprised.

            How does one know, when two verses are contradictory, which is abrogated and which is abrogating? It is a question of date: Later texts abrogate earlier texts whenever there are inconsistencies between them. The Koranic verses that teach tolerance and peace, in particular those that prohibit compulsion in religion, are among the earliest of Mohammed's many revelations and are thus liable to abrogation, whenever Allah felt the inclination to revoke his immutable word. Although Islam, unlike Judaism and Christianity, received its revelation from a single person within a short period of time, roughly twenty years, Mohammed was nonetheless able to impose upon his followers the implausible belief that the inerrant Muslim God had routinely changed his mind.

            The pacific, tolerant message of Sura 2.256 reflects the historical circumstances of its composition. Islam was still then decidedly a minority faith and Mohammed and his small band of followers, in Medina and surrounded by non-Muslim enemies, were threatened with destruction. The early Koran of necessity presented religious tolerance as a divine command because nascent Islam had not yet acquired the physical power to compel conversion: "The Apostle had not been given permission to fight or allowed to shed blood … he had simply been ordered to call men to God, endure insult, and forgive the ignorant" (Ibn Ishaq, Sirat Rasul Allah).

            But when Islam became powerful, Allah's eternal message changed. Islam could now "call people by the sword" — that is, compel conversion — and accordingly "verses of the sword" were conveniently revealed to the Prophet, verses that sanction and indeed command conversion of the Infidel by armed violence, which historically would be Islam's preferred method. Sura 2.256 was thus abrogated by a later verse, composed after Mohammed had begun to prepare his new Muslim empire for Jihad against the non-Muslim world: "Slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them, and confine them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush" (Sura 9.5). This "verse of the sword" not only abrogates 2.256, but also abrogates well over a hundred earlier verses that formerly taught peace and tolerance toward non-believers.

            Only the later, abrogating verse now represents authentic Muslim teaching.
            http://library.flawlesslogic.com/verses.htm

            Apparently, the Prophet (may he please choke on camel piss) revealed Sura 2.256 in Mecca as I said, and very apparently you are lame ass taqiyya spewing Muslim.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        Also, prophet Muhammad was not a slave trader and not only encouraged but actively freed many many slaves (men and women) during his time. To free a slave is one of the highest ranking good deeds.

        What are you smoking? How extremely gullible and oblivious of Islamic history can any one person be? Muhammad made his living off of plunder and the slave trade and regularly and routinely attacked non-Muslim unbelievers not only for the purpose of pillage and plunder, but to also round up slaves for the slave trade. In fact, Muhammad derived all of his income from plunder and the slave trade and believe me he didn't die a poor man.

        Indeed, besides jihad conquest and harsh and degrading dhimmitude, the history Islam is also the history of slavery, as Muslims enslaved both blacks and whites equally, since for centuries the Muslims not only constantly raided Africa for black slaves, but they also constantly raided Europe as well to round up white slaves. In fact, the word “Slavic” as in Slavic people is derived from the Muslim razzias (raids) for the purpose of plunder and for the purpose of rounding up slaves for their slave trade. As a matter of fact, slavery today in the Islamic world is still very much alive and well in places like Sudan, Somalia, Mauritania, and other places and would be everywhere in the Islamic world today as well if it wasn't for Western pressure. Indeed, you couldn't be more gullible or ignorant of Islamic history.

        I encourage you to just read Quran and decide for yourself.

        Not only have you never read the Koran, but you also couldn't be more gullible or ignorant of Islamic history, yet like a loon you are lecturing others who forgot more about Islam than you will ever come close to knowing to read the Koran. Indeed, you are the quintessential delusional leftist.

        The incidences listed in this article are deplorable and must be condemned by all. The issue is with some of the feudal and illiterate elements of the Pakistani society and not Islam.

        Really…then please explain why the same systematic oppression and persecution of Christians and all other non-Muslim unbelievers is happening like clockwork not only in Pakistan but also in every Muslim majority country in the world without a single exception? The obvious truth is you couldn't be a bigger moonbat.

        • Abushuaib

          The Prophet died a poor man, and did not make money on slaves! In fact, if anything, he could have lost out financially as he personally freed 63 slaves, and his wife Aisha freed 67. In total his household and friends freed several thousand slaves by paying their owners for their liberation.

          The name Slavic existed before the advent of Islam and so there isn't a link with Razzia. I couldn't find independent evidence of what you are saying: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slavic_peoples.

          The rich landlords in Pakistan abuse people regardless of their religion. Rich men have kidnapped and abused Muslim women as well. With their bribes, they consider themselves above the law. Their practices are unislamic and condemned by Islamic scholars.

            The notion that the Prophet (may he burn in hell forever) died a poor man instead of a rich and powerful warlord is nothing but taqiyya. The reality is the entire economy of the Muslims was based on plunder and the slave trade.

            Actually, the English word “slave” is derived from the practice of the Turks making razzias to round up Slavic people for the purpose of the slave trade.

            The rich landlords in Pakistan abuse people regardless of their religion. Rich men have kidnapped and abused Muslim women as well. With their bribes, they consider themselves above the law. Their practices are unislamic and condemned by Islamic scholars.

            Where are these condemnations?

            Yeah right and there is a man on the moon and the moon is made of cheese. The real truth is the same exact kind of violent oppression and systematic persecution that takes place in Pakistan against Christians and all other non-Muslim unbelievers as well, also takes place in every Islamic country in the world also as well.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Sadly, this sort of oppression and far worse takes place not only against Christians, but also against all non-Muslim unbelievers and also in ALL Islamic countries. Indeed, what is different from the kind of systematic oppression and persecution against Christians and other non-Muslim unbelievers in Pakistan from the systematic oppression and persecution of Christians and other non-Muslim unbelievers in Egypt? Nothing, as this sort of systematic oppression and persecution against Christians and non-Muslim unbelievers systematically occurs in all the Islamic countries, yet we are brainwashed to believe that Islam is a so-called Religion of Peace™ being hijacked by a tiny minority of extremists.

  • Stuart Parsons

    And my United Kingdom government recently rewarded Pakistan with a gift of £650,000,000. How can such an action be justified ? Islam really is EVIL as was its so-called 'Prophet and Messenger'

  • LindaRivera

    To Junaid,

    Taqiyya! Mohammad, was indeed, a HUGE slave trader.

    I have sat in a conference in Southern California were one of the speakers, an Egyptian Christian pastor, cried out in anguish over the kidnapping of many young Egyptian Christian girls, kidnapped by Muslim males in EGYPT. And I have been told in New York by a Christian Egyptian, that the kidnapping of Christian girls goes on all the time in Egypt. Also reported in many articles.

    I have walked in a protest march against Muslim slavery. The leader of the march was an escaped Christian slave from SUDAN.

    The hearts of many break over the terrible suffering of non-Muslims enslaved by cruel Muslims.

    Black Slaves, Arab Masters By: Andrew G. Bostom
    FrontPageMagazine.com | Monday, April 18, 2005

    A public protest in Washington, DC, on April 5, 2005 highlighted the current (ongoing, for centuries) plight of black Mauritanians enslaved by Arab masters. The final two decades of the 20th century, moreover, witnessed a jihad genocide, including mass enslavement, perpetrated by the Arab Muslim Khartoum government against black Christians and animists in the Southern Sudan, and the same government’s continued massacres and enslavement of Animist-Muslim blacks in Darfur. These tragic contemporary phenomena reflect the brutal living legacy of jihad slavery.

    Jihad Slavery

    The fixed linkage between jihad- a permanent, uniquely Islamic institution- and enslavement, provides a very tenable explanation for the unparalleled scale and persistence of slavery in Muslim dominions, and societies. This general observation applies as well to “specialized” forms of slavery, including the (procurement and) employment of eunuchs, slave soldiering (especially of adolescents), other forms of child slavery, and harem slavery. Jihad slavery, in its myriad manifestations, became a powerful instrument for both expansive Islamization, and the maintenance of Muslim societies. http://archive.frontpagemag.com/readArticle.aspx?…

    In the Bible, G-D gives the DEATH sentence for both kidnapping and murder.

  • ronwagn

    It is a shame that our government supports Islamic nations in any way, so long as they harm Christians and other religious groups. Obviously Shariah law condones this. Yet many of our liberals want to include Shariah in our legal jurisprudence.

  • alphakilosingh

    Why so much brouhaha about a noble act? The intention of the abductors of Mahek as the abductors themselves announced, was a noble one: they wanted to purify her! How ignorant the non-believers can be! They do not even know the simple truth that the only pure religion is Islam, followers of and all other religions are unclean. Purification therefore is the greatest service to the mankind a Mohammadan can do, and kudos to the abductors for this superhuman act!
    In an Islamic country like Pakistan, where the laws are clearly laid down about the rights of minorities, why should someone insist on living like a Christian? Purification of such souls is a must.
    You can write scholarly articles about these things because they are happening in far away lands like Pakistan, but the day is not far, when such news items will be published in local newspapers of USA. Can we do something to prevent it?

    ' TAQIYYA '
    Do your own research about it if you don't know what this means.

    islam IS EVIL. PERIOD.

    islam strives for world domination.

    The quran commands muslims to exercise jihad.

    The quern commands muslims to establish shariah law.

    The quern commands muslims to impose islam on the entire world.

    islam is NOT a religion, it IS a totalitarian ideology.

    islam IS and has remained a death cult from its beginnings.

    islam wants to dominate all aspects of life, from the cradle to the grave.

    shariah law is a law that controls every detail of life in a islamic society.

    From civic- and family law to criminal law.

    It determines how one should eat, dress and even use the toilet.

    Oppression of women is good, drinking alcohol is bad.

    The core of the quran is the call to jihad.

    Jihad means a lot of things and is arabic for battle.

    islam means submission, there cannot be any mistake about its goal.

    islam and freedom, islam and democracy are not compatible.

    They are opposite values.

    mohamed's "wife" was six years old.

    That makes mohamed a PEDOPHILE!!!

    Dear Friends, Most of you are quoting references out of context, misrepresenting the facts or are simply have biases due to ignorance. I may not have the knowledge that you have but I do know that I should differentiate between the real teachings of Islam and the actual behavior of some of the muslims. There is no denying that there are some muslims in all the countries that are following practices that are contrary to the teachings of the Quran or the prophet but please keep in mind that Muslims were the "superpower" for almost a thousand years and if Islam taught violence there would be no minorities now as they would have forced everyone to convert or be killed. So please think logically and not emotionally. Islam is still the fastest growing religion in the west as more voluntary conversions are going on in USA and Europe than any other religion. This is not because muslims in these countries are forcing the conversions but because they have taken the time to read Quran without preconceived ideas and biases.

    The myths like the "prophet married a six year old" are not the facts and should not be taken as such. There is only one God and HE is the God of Moses, Jesus and all the other so let's focus on what that God wants us to do and not on what some miscreants are doing to give a bad name to the whole society.

      Are you calling us friends because you feel at a disadvantage/outnumbered and you need to protect yourself? (Qur'an 3:28)

    • Lfox328

      In the countries the Muslims control, they are doing their best to see that there are no more minorities. The prophet DID marry a six-year old; he consummated the marriage when she was nine. Those are facts. Allah is NOT the God of Moses, Jesus, and all the others.

      You are in denial of what Islam is, and has become. It was born in violence; it embraces violence today. Individual Muslims might be quite peaceful, but the religion is autocratic, brutal, and keeps its' adherents in Medieval mind-shackles.

      Your quote: "but please keep in mind that Muslims were the "superpower" for almost a thousand years and if Islam taught violence there would be no minorities now as they would have forced everyone to convert or be killed." ……. Well, they most certainly tried until repelled by Christian Europeans in Spain, Italy and Turkey. ____Whatever good you may have to say about the majority of Muslims, the vast majority is doing next to nothing to counter the infinite number of atrocities your muslim brother is exacting on the world in the name of Allah. 12,000 attacks world wide where someone is killed or seriously maimed since 9/11/01. Something does not speak well of the core of that faith when there is such an enormous fringe elelment causing evil, to the point it is hard to describe it as a fringe.____Secondly, there are souls at stake here. Either Jesus Christ is the One and Only Son of the One True God, or he is not. Non-Christians may very well be saved by the mercy of God, but it behooves every man to seek out the truth! And both religions cannot contain the truth.

  • vanityofvanitys

    The free world is either asleep or too afraid to confront this menace.

    Then you have that liberal elitist contingency that keeps trying to tell everyone that Christianity is just as scary or evil as all these Islamic attacks because of the Crusades or the Inquisition or some other asinine piece of reasoning. Is the devil that powerful he can influence so-called intelligent men into being dupes for his own bidding?

  • junaid59

    We can discuss the history of Europe and crusades but that is not what this discussion needs to be. The real facts are there are almost equal number of muslims and christians in the world. They both believe in the same God and they both believe that good deeds in this world will result in a rewarding hereafter. So the issue is not muslims or christians but that every where there are people who violate the basic principles of humanity and cause huge problems for rest of the world. If 12,000 deplorable attacks have occurred since 9/11 then there have been over 50,000 INNOCENT people killed in the so called war on terror. So doesn't it make you wonder no one is clean in this and everyone must share the blame. YES, some muslims have definitely defamed the religion and must be condemned and punished but equally guilty are people who have bombed the innocent and destroyed lives on thousands. Let's be fair and rational in our views and not be biased due to our prejudices. Again, the issue is not muslims, christians, jews as no religion teaches violence on innocents but the real issue is there are some humans who utilize the religion (any religion) to their own benefit and commit atrocities. Whoever commits any kind of atrocities is wrong.
