The name of the man is Arshed Masih, and according to reports Islamic radicals tried to burn him alive right in front of a police station in the city of Rawalpindi. So did the police do anything to protect the Christian man? No, the police were too busy raping his wife. Now 80 percent of his body is burned and he is struggling to stay alive.
One of the saddest things is that their 3 children (ranging in age from 7 to 12) were reportedly forced to watch the attacks on their parents.
So how did this all come about? Well, it is alleged that in January Islamic leaders in the area asked Arshed to convert to Islam with his whole family.
After Arshed refused their request, the group of Islamic leaders reportedly threatened him with “dire consequences”. Apparently they were quite serious. But this is just the latest in a serious of vicious attacks on Christians in Pakistan recently.
