Christians in Pakistan face many Sharia-inspired injustices, and often find themselves victimized by police and government officials. Here is yet another example: “Christians protest against ASP,” from the Daily Times, with thanks to Nicolei:
LAHORE: A large gathering of Christians on Tuesday protested against Baghbanpura’s assistant superintendent of police (ASP)-Investigation for allegedly supporting a kidnapper. The protestors chanted slogans against police and appealed to higher authorities for justice. They said that Muhammad Abbas, a resident of Gohawa village, had kidnapped 14-year-old Christian girl Asma. They claimed that Asma’s family had appealed to the South Cantt police station to register a case but had been denied. They added that Abbas”s uncle Bashir had assured the family during a “˜Panchaiyat” that the girl would be returned in a few days. However, Bashir later produced a fake marriage certificate saying Abbas and Asma had wedded. Asma’s brother Nadeem Masih had tried to contact higher authorities but Bashir and Abbas shot him and fled, said the protestors.
