They wanted to humiliate and degrade these two Christians, and possibly get evidence for a case against them of homosexuality. Pakistan’s blasphemy laws are an endless source of persecution and misery for Christians and other non-Muslims in that country, but no one cares. It isn’t as if something serious such as “Islamophobia” were being committed.
“Christian man told to strip and give oral sex to his cousin accused of blasphemy, leaps from fourth story of Pakistan’s ‘FBI’ headquarters,” by Wilson Chowdhry, British Pakistani Christian Association, February 24, 2018 (thanks to the Geller Report):
A Christian man was fighting for his life at Lahore General Hospital last night after he took a ‘leap of faith’ to escape the brutal intentions of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) officers who wanted him to perform sex on his cousin who had been accused of blasphemy (click here),alleged the victim.
Sajid Masih was taken to hospital at Ganga Ram Hospital at 6pm (1PM GMT) and later transferred to Lahore General Hospital at around 8.20pm (3.20pm) and was expected to pass away, but through the prayers of Christians across the globe, he survived (click here). Today he gave a revealing statement to his lawyer that has shocked Christians across Pakistan.
In a video filmed by Sajid Masih’s solicitor and shared by Pakistan Today, he said:
“They [FIA officers] demanded my attendance at their headquarters to check my mobile phone [FIA officers believed Sajid had blasphemous content on his phone].”
“They used this pretext to take me to a bathroom where they started to beat me.
“They confiscated my mobile phone as part of their investigation, checked it and then started beating me again.
“I asked why they were beating me, what have I done that was wrong. They started roundly beating me again and told me they were hitting me because I was the ‘cousin of that boy’ [Sajid is the cousin of Patras Masih the primary suspect in a blasphemy case].”
“They told us to insult each other by using the word ‘Laanti’ (men under a curse), my frightened young cousin complied under great duress.”
“They asked me to remove my cousin’s trousers and have oral sex with him. I refused outright.”
“I explained that I can’t have oral sex with him because he is my brother, but my pleas made them angry. They then started shouting loudly at both of us. I saw a window in the room and quickly jumped out of it.
“After this they [FIA officers] downstairs asked why I had jumped from the window, at the time I was semi-concious [sic]. But I could hear everything.
“Khalid Saeed [FIA Sub-Inspector] took me there [to FIA headquarters]. No evidence of any crime was found on my phone”.
Already the FIA through Khalid Saeed have issued an expected reactive statement, in which they deny this version of the story. They have said that Sajid Masih simply panicked during an investigation and leapt out of the window.
Federal Minister for Interior Ahsan Iqbal has set in motion an inquiry into this incident but few Christians believe any justice will be forthcoming.
Christians trying to make sense of this whole episode were left reeling when they read an article in Pakistan Today, in which was written:
“Meanwhile, the FIA has also registered an FIR against Sajid Masih with the Civil Lines Police Station for attempting suicide.”…
