(I Am Not Ashamed Of The Gospel Of Christ) A Pakistani News Agency is reporting the rape and murder of a baby 1 1/2 years old. Her body was found in Nazimabad. Nazimabad is a middle-class suburb of Karachi, Sindh,Pakistan. It was developed in 1952 to settle Muslim refugees in Pakistan. According to the report the baby was strangled to death after being raped. Details are not yet available.
Women and children are abused on a daily basis, there are numerous reports of rape and abuse especially among young Christian girls. In December of last year 2 girls were raped while they went outside their house to use the bathroom and didn’t return. They were found several miles away the next day. They were held at gunpoint and raped repeatedly by 3 men. According to some rape is on the increase in Pakistan. It’s hard to get numbers or testimony because the women are encouraged not to press charges, in some cases threatened with retaliation if they report it. Rape, gangrape, domestic violence, honour killing (Karo Kari), vani (exchange of women in settling the disputes), and forced child marriages are some examples of women’s rights violations that have occurred in Pakistan. And if the woman is Christian it’s much worse.
Schools are also under increasing attack the most traumatic being the slaughter of children by the Taliban at a military based school, killing 150 students and teachers. And after the Charlie Hebdo attacks a gang armed with sticks and stones attacked a Christian school forcing their way in, and threatening those inside. Schools have had to resort to hiring security guards, training children how to react in an attack and now allowing Teachers to arm themselves. A quote from the Washington Times from the Higher Education Minister in Pakistan say’s “We’re at war,”, arguing that the region’s 65,000 police are stretched too thin to provide a first line of defense to nearly 50,000 schools.”
And then there’s ISIS. ISIS is on the rise in Pakistan. They have such a good reputation for women. You see they kidnap, rape, torture and murder girls and think it’s a way of life. NBC reported a few days ago that the number of Taliban joining ISIS is increasing: “Hundreds of Taliban fighters have joined ISIS’ new branch in Pakistan, according to three militant commanders in the country.”
This should alarm the world at large, but mostly silence. Remember Pakistan is a nuclear country. If these weapons fell into the hands of ISIS well, let’s just say catastrophic. There would be none safe.
ISIS just released a manifest of what women should be:
- Beauty Parlors are works of the devil
- Children as young as 9 should get married (I’m sure this follows the example of the founder of Islam)
- Lead sedentary lifestyle, remaining covered and hidden (veiled) and at the service of men, their masters
- Clothing stores are also a work of the devil and should be avoided (Read More)
And we are the ones who don’t understand Islam?
