“Explaining the reason behind rising incidents of discrimination, abduction, forced conversion and rapes [and murders, of course] involving vulnerable segments of society,” a human rights advocate in Pakistan said, “You can always expect occurrence of such incidents in presence of a multi-law system.” That would be the sort of law-system the Obama administration is acquiescing to.
“Pakistani Christian man murdered,” by Dan Wooding and Sheraz Khurram Khan for Assist News, April 4:
FAISALABAD, PAKISTAN (ANS) — ANS has learned that a Pakistani Christian man was murdered on the night of March 31, 2009 in Samundri, located in the Faisalabad district of Punjab province, when he went to his brother’s house to get medicine for himself.
The family of Rashid Masih were worried about him when he did not return despite passage of several hours. Rashid’s family looked for him everywhere in Sumandri but could not get any clue on his whereabouts.
The family members of the deceased who had a sleepless night were shocked to find the body of Rashid in a dried canal near their home on April 1. The deceased has left two daughters Nomi, 8, Hansa 6, and two sons Shalom, 5, and Shalon, 2.
A murder case has been registered at the Samundri Police Station, but police have not made any arrests in this connection at the time of writing of this report.
Pakistani Christians have often complained about the apathetic attitude of the police towards them, apparently due to them being lowest of the low.[…]
Talking to ANS by phone, Mr. Anjum James, director of Social Harmony, Awareness and Development of Women (SHADOW), said that his organization pressed police for post mortem on Rashid’s body.
Explaining the reason behind rising incidents of discrimination, abduction, forced conversion and rapes involving vulnerable segments of society, Anjum James said: “You can always expect occurrence of such incidents in presence of a multi-law system.”
When asked to elaborate on what he meant by multi-law system he said: “On the one hand you have Sharia (Islamic Law), and on the other you have English constitution.”
He went on to say that in the “presence of several laws in a state, any person could commit an offence under the pretext of any of existing laws in the state.”
He called for a uniform legal system which is equally applicable to every citizen of the state adding that every citizen “should be treated on the basis of equality.”
