Islamic Tolerance and “No Compulsion In Religion” Alerts from WorldNetDaily.com, :
Two brothers who used to work at a brick kiln have escaped from what they describe as a kidnapping and torture by the business owner, who wanted them to convert from Christianity to Islam, according to a new report from Voice of the Martyrs, a U.S.-based Christian group helping members of the persecuted Christian church worldwide.
The two now have had to move to a new location in Pakistan, since the kiln owner continues to search for them, alleging they owe him a sum of about $750 — or 45,000 rupees.
The brothers, Shahzad, 18, and Saraj Bashir, 20, were working for the kiln company — at the rate of about 200 to 300 rupees per 1,000 bricks, but were being pressured by the owner to forsake Christianity.
One day their steadfast Christian faith brought their Islamic boss to a breaking point.
“When Shahzad and Saraj refused to convert, the brick kiln owner took them away,” according to a VOM source within Pakistan. “He put them in a small, empty room with a mud floor without a bed, chair or mattress.”
The source continued: “He kept them there for a month. He gave them food once a day and beat them with a stick when they refused to convert back to Islam. He also threw acid on their arms, but they remained true to their Christ.”
