And even though the daughter — her father died during the “stress-jihad” — is clearly in the right, guess who the (overwhelmingly Muslim) police are siding with? “Daughter Fights Muslim Tenant and Police for Family Farm,” from Right Side News, February 17:
The Washington-DC based human rights group, International Christian Concern (ICC) has just learned that a rich Muslim tenant has robbed his Christian landowner of several acres of farmland he is renting in Faisalabad, Pakistan. Distressed by the situation, the elderly Christian landowner died, and his daughter is now trying to recover the family farm, but police have refused to pursue the case.
This is another example of how Muslims in Pakistan specifically target their criminal activities against Christians because they know the justice system is prejudiced against non-Muslims.
Mehnga Masih, a Christian farmer, owned 11 acres of agricultural land in the village Chak 51 GB of Faisalabad district, and rented five acres of the land in 1998 to a Muslim farmer, Zahoor Ahmad Khan, for eleven years. Their contract provided that the land would remain the sole property of Mehnga Masih and Khan would only use it for producing crops.
After a few years, however, Khan cut down several trees so he could build a farmhouse and hired some men to work from his new farmhouse, none of which was allowed based on his contract with Mehnga. To make matters worse, Khan then tried to build a mosque on Mehnga’s property.
Considering that the Muslim prophet said: “If you ever take an oath to do something and later on you find that something else is better, then you should expiate your oath and do what is better” — how can Khan be blamed within an Islamic framework?
Mehnga reminded Khan that he could not build without permission, but Khan retorted that he was the owner of the land and could do anything he wanted. Mehnga successfully stopped him from building the mosque by gaining the support of his neighbors, but Khan refused to take down the farmhouse he had built.
Mehnga’s daughter, Josephine Akhtar Mehnga, told ICC, “That was a shocking thing for us and we smelled that Khan was planning something wrong and wanted to grab the land.” In the meantime, however, Mehnga became seriously ill and died. Josephine is convinced that the stress over Khan’s activities drove her father to his grave.
After Mehnga’s death, Josephine discovered that Khan had forged documents to say that he owned all 11 acres of the Christian family’s farm.
In 2005, Josephine and her brothers made an official request for police action against Khan, but the police refused to follow up on the application, and so Khan became more emboldened in his forged claim to the land…
