Hector Aleem Update and A Good News

Hector Aleem Family

I have been following the plight of Hector Aleem for some time. Below is the latest update which includes a plea for money from the Aleem family to pay the Pakistani lawyer that represents Hector. Evidently the lawyer is excellent and is willing to take the risk of representing a Christian accused of Blasphemy in Muslim Pakistan, but he requires his fee to continue his representation.

I have edited Mehwish Aleem’s original update for clarity. If I changed the meaning of any content, I apologize.

Hector Aleem Update and A Good News

Dear group members,

For the first time ever we are about to share some good news with you. As you all know that Our Father Hector Aleem is falsely accused of a Blasphemy charge. And you also know that Sunni Tehreek (A terrorist organization) is behind that charge lodged against our father. And you also know that when daddy was arrested, Sunni Tehreek lodged more cases on him (with different plaintiffs) to prevent him from getting out of the jail. But these other cases were lodged on him when he was in jail.

Hector Aleem was arrested in January 2009 due to that Blasphemy case and after three months i.e. on April 2009, more cases were lodged against him as criminal charges. Of course all these cases are false and there is no evidence against our father. This was done to prevent him from getting out of the jail and to increase tension for him and his family and to torture him mentally.

Those cases are being processed along with that Blasphemy case. But the good news is that our father Hector Aleem has been released from three of those Criminal cases because there was absolutely no evidence against him. In the order the judge wrote:

[S]ince two years there has not been any kind of evidence against Hector Aleem, and those cases were lodged against him due to the personal enmity of the plaintiff so he is now released from these three cases”.

But he is still in jail due to that Blasphemy charge and some other cases which are still being processed. We are 1000% sure that our father Hector Aleem will be released from these other criminal cases too as they are all at the end and there is no evidence against him. But that Blasphemy case is still very dangerous because it carries the death penalty if convicted. The Blasphemy case is also at the end and there are only final arguments left. But the judge who was processing the Blasphemy case has been changed.

We don’t know if he has been changed by the government or what but the new judge is about to come. We don’t even know the name of that new judge and that’s why the processing has been delayed till 4th of December 2010.

Our lawyer is doing an awesome job but he is asking for the fee. We paid him a lot, but still he is asking for the fee and I think that he will continue to ask for the fee until our father is released from jail. Sunni Tehreek (A terrorist organization) announced that to all lawyers that “a person who takes the case of Hector Aleem will be killed”. Now all other lawyers are afraid to take the case of Hector Aleem. There was another person from Pakistan who is a lawyer and was a member of this group agreed to take the case our father but when he saw the danger of Mullahs and that terrorist organization Sunni Tehreek, he refused to help us. Our current lawyer is the only lawyer in whole Pakistan who is brave enough to take our father’s case and says, “[M]y life and profession are in danger due to your case that’s why you will have to pay me whatever I ask you to pay, and if you won’t pay me….I will stop working and will resume working when you will pay me”. So we are in this situation.

It all happened in front of you, nothing was happening when this group was started in April 2010 but now things are changing. You all have supported us this far, we need your support once again and hopefully this time we will pay our lawyer his fee…our father will be released thanks to all of you.

The example of Asia Bibi is in front of you, she is convicted and is about to be hanged to death. (SlantRight Editor: You can read about Asia Bibi at SlantRight 2.0) There are many protests going on in Pakistan against Asia Bibi and all Blasphemy victims, the Mullahs want to kill them all. Because of this, the heat on our father’s case is increasing. And there is a 99% chance that the Mullahs will gather outside daddy’s court again and will try to do something bad. So please don’t let the same thing happen to daddy like it happened to Asia Bibi.

We are all very scared of this Blasphemy tension which is rising in Pakistan. Please pray for our father, pray for his safety and his release. Also please donate for our father Hector Aleem so that we can give that money to the lawyer and he will start his work again. You can donate any amount, even a few dollars helps. If you want to donate through pay pal then follow the link below and if you want to donate through snail mail then contact the Shouman who is in the Admin list. And if you want to donate through Western Union then you can contact Mehwish Aleem in the admin list. (SlantRight Editor: The contact information is on the Facebook Group of Free Hector Aleem)

Some people might not like it but we desperately need your help. We also want to give daddy some warm clothes he doesn’t have warm clothes and Christmas is near. You can send him some Christmas cards and encourage him but remember nothing should be written against Pakistan or Islam.

Here is the link to pay pal:

Thank you everyone,
God Bless You All
