Two young women, sisters, have been savagely murdered in Pakistan for refusing to renounce their religious faith. This report from Pakistan’s Centre for Legal Aid, Assistance and Settlement makes for disturbing reading and challenges Pakistan to reassert Muhmad Ali Jinnah’s commitment to freedom of religion or belief. The murderers must be brought to justice.
Report from CLAAS:
Two young Christian sisters, Abida 26, and Sajida 28, of Makhan Colony, near Lahore, were murdered last month after they continually refused to convert to Islam.
The police have arrested two Muslim men, Mumtaz Khan and Muhammad Naeem, on suspicion of killing the women.
Mushtaq Masih, Sajida’s husband said that both sisters were working in a medicine factory, and on November 26, 2020 they went for household shopping but never came back.
When they didn’t return their family registered a complaint of abduction with the police as both sisters had told the family they were often sexually harassed and even asked to convert to Islam by their co-workers Muhammad Naeem and Mumtaz Khan.
Although they made clear that they were Christian and married, the men threatened them and kept harassing the sisters.
