Egypt has been the recent paradigm of the persecutions of Christians by Muslims especially since the fall of Hosni Mubarak and the emerging power of the Muslim Brotherhood. The Coptic Christians of Egypt (10% of population – 8,200,000) are the largest grouping of Christians in a Muslim nation in which Islamic Supremacism dominates. There are pockets of Christians remarkably dwelling in other Muslim nations. The American ally (allegedly) Pakistan and partner in the GWOT (allegedly) also has a contingent of Christians in their population.
Figures cited in Wikipedia show there are a little less than 182 million Muslim in Pakistan. The same Wikipedia article shows 2,700,000 Christians reside in Pakistan. Pakistani Christians receive severe treatment under Sharia Law. Sharia is often used as an excuse for Muslims to exploit Christians in the case of property. Simply make up a blasphemy accusation of a Christian leader and your Church may be subject to confiscation and the leader on trial for his/her life.
Western media barely covers the horrific treatment of Christians in Egypt. Western media coverage of persecuted Christians in Pakistan is near zero. If it was not for a few bloggers people would not know there were Christians in Pakistan let alone persecuted Christians.
I have been following the plight of two Pakistani Christians both of whom have been charged with breaking blasphemy laws in Pakistan. I have not come upon any information as to their outlook in several months. I have to run across their status from organizations dedicated to exposing Muslim mistreatment of Christians or a few brave Pakistani Christians willing to risk detection by getting info out via the Internet. The two I am writing about are Hector Aleem and Asia Bibi. Both faced death sentences under Pakistani Blasphemy and both have receive some kind of legal reprieve the last I have read of them yet the last I heard they both were in a Pakistani jail or prison for whatever ludicrous Islamic Sharia Law ruling. (If anyone has heard anything about Hector and Asia let me know)
Join the Walid Shoebat Foundation in helping persecuted Christians in Pakistan and that Foundation be a whistleblower of the vicious tragedies perpetrated by Muslims upon Christians in Pakistan. Below is a little piece writing about Pakistan from the Foundation.
