Beaten and Tortured for Crime He Did Not Commit; Now Free Courtesy of Rescue Christians

We would like to thank our supporters for without your help we could not have saved this man:

On 24th May 2016, Liaqat Masih contacted us in order to help his son who was arrested by the police over the charge of the sharing and publishing the Blasphemous material against Muhammad (prophet of Islam). At the time of Usman’s arrest all the Christians from the Nabi Pura village had fled and the Muslims were threatening to burn down all Christian homes.

When the Rescue Christian team investigated the whole issue, we found that there were a gang of Christian and Muslim men who took the picture of women and posted them on Facebook and then they blackmailed Usman Masih. Prior to this Blasphemy accusation Usman Masih was assaulted by these men in which Usman was badly injured. Usman Masih submitted a complaint against these men but the police did not act against them. In an act of revenge by his attackers the same people who assaulted him filed false charges of blasphemy with no evidence to support the claim, then Usman Masih was arrested. The anti Christian bias was blatant.

With the support of the police and some local influential people this gang registered an FIR against him under the blasphemy law. They accused Usman for posting and sharing the Anti Islam and Anti Muhammad material on Social media. Usman worked at a Honda Factory and he hardly has any time for the family, he never gets involved in any of such activities on the internet.

Police took his cell phone and computer for their investigation and later his ISP. Mr. Najeeb Ullah Khan testified in Court that he did not find any blasphemous material from Usman’s Cell Phone or Computer. He further explained that the Forensic laboratory analyzed his computer as well as his Facebook account and found nothing sub verse against Islam was published.

Even Eshan Asmat the complainant failed to provide any evidence against Usman Masih. Our team of lawyers proved Usman Masih innocence and after a long twenty months the Judge being Mohammed Moeen Khokhar on February 16 2018 signed the acquittal and release papers in the court of Additional and session judge of Ferozwala, Punjab.

The Judge Muhammad Moeen Khokhar understood Usman Masih was innocent and there was not a single piece evidence against him and provided more than enough time (nearly two years) for the complaint to show any evidence of guilt which they could not. While the judge did finally acquit Usman, it is still scandalous that he took twenty-one months for justice to be done as well as police torture to go unpunished. Our lawyers and partners were able to get justice but it took efforts that went way beyond what it should have taken.

Five women were killed and several others were injured after a gunman opened fire with a hunting rifle on people leaving a church service in Russia’s Dagestan region on Sunday, Russian media outlets reported.

The shooting unfolded outside a church in Kizlyar, a town of about 50,000 people on the border with Chechnya. The Russian news agency TASS cited Svetlana Petrenko of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation as the source for the number of people killed and wounded.

The Islamic State terror network claimed responsibility, according to its Amaq media agency. ISIS said the killer was a “soldier of the caliphate,” a man known as Khalil al-Dagestani, The New York Times reported.

The gunman was shot dead by police responding to the scene, a law enforcement source told the Interfax news agency. According to Interfax, the gunman has been identified as a local man in his early 20s.

“People were leaving a church after an evening service when he opened gunfire at them,” Shuvalov told TASS. Two police officers and a woman were among the wounded, according to Shuvalov. One woman later died at a hospital, a law enforcement source told RIA Novosti.

A witness posted a video of the shooting on Twitter, which captured the moment shots were being fired.

Russian television station REN-TV posted surveillance video showing the gunman walking with the gun along main streets of the city.

Russian news outlets also posted photos on social media of the alleged weapon used in the attack, in addition to a body in front of the church covered by a tarp.

Parishioners were at the church celebrating the end of the Russian festival of Maslenitsa, a holiday which marks the start of Lent for Russian Orthodox Christians, according to RT.

A witness to the shooting, Oksana, told RT the gunman targeted people as they were leaving the church, but many took cover inside the building.

“There were a lot of people there, moms with little children, elderly people. I believe God saved us, not allowing the man to get inside the church,” the woman told the news outlet.(source)

Muslim Terrorists Execute Three Christians, Shout “These Infidels Should Be Wiped Out”

Muslim Terrorists Execute Three Christians, Shout “These Infidels Should Be Wiped Out”

Three Christians were executed this weekend by Muslim terrorists. According to witnesses they said “these infidels should be wiped out” as they did the killings:

Suspected members of Islamic extremist group Al Shabaab shot three Christians to death in northeastern Kenya at 1 a.m. on Friday (Feb. 16), sources said.

Targeting Kenyans who came from other areas to work in predominantly Somali Wajir, some 100 miles from the Somali border, the suspected terrorists from the Somali rebel group entered the sleeping quarters of personnel at Qarsa Primary School and killed two Christian teachers and the wife of one of them, sources told Morning Star News.

After killing Seth Oluoch Odada, his wife Caroline and teacher Kevin Shari, one of the assailants said in the Somali language, “These infidels [non-Muslims] should be wiped out,” a teacher who survived the attack told a worker at Wajir Referral Hospital, the worker told Morning Star News.

The pastor of an area church, undisclosed for security reasons, told Morning Star News that Odada and his wife attended his church.

“We are very concerned about this selective kind of attack on non-locals who are also Christians in this region,” the pastor said. “Our other church members are not safe. Many of the church members, including teachers, have started fleeing the area to their home villages, and some did not attend the church for the Sunday service.”

It was not known if Shari belonged to a church. The bodies of those killed have been transferred to Chiromo Mortuary in Nairobi.

The hospital worker said that after shooting the couple, one of the assailants entered the house Shari shared with the surviving teacher. The gunman shot at Shari, and the same bullet struck the hand of the survivor, who fell down and pretended to be dead, the hospital source said, adding that the injured man said the shooter wore a mask typical of Al Shabaab militants.

The area pastor said local people believe area residents have joined Al Shabaab.

“I think these are the people who killed the three Christians,” he said.

Wajir is becoming increasingly dangerous for Christians since Al Shabaab militants appear to have shifted from Mandera, where they have carried out attacks in the past few years before the government recently erected a 10-kilometer wall on the border there, the pastor said.

Fear has shaken Christians in Wajir, he said. In Garissa, about 200 miles south of Wajir also near the Somali border, Al Shabaab has also been active. The pastors fellowship in Garissa reported several members did not appear for Sunday services.

“We as the pastors fellowship do register our concern to the government to protect Christians living in this volatile northeastern country,” the chairman of the pastor’s fellowship said.

The Wajir branch of the Kenya Union of Post Primary Education Teachers called for the withdrawal of all non-local teachers in Wajir County if the government fails to increase security.

“We cannot close our eyes as non-local teachers are being butchered,” a union official told Morning Star News.

Education along Kenya’s border with Somalia has been hobbled after non-Muslim teachers inn 2014 began refusing to work in the region following frequent attacks by Al Shabaab and its sympathizers on non-Muslims. (source)

Egyptian Christians Open Brand New Church Dedicated To Martyrs Slaughtered By Muslim Terrorists In Infamous ISIS Video

Egyptian Christians Open Brand New Church Dedicated To Martyrs Slaughtered By Muslim Terrorists In Infamous ISIS Video

On February 15th, 2015, ISIS terrorists captured 21 Coptic Christians and filmed themselves as they slaughtered the Christians on a beach in Libya one-by-one. The men, who were murdered for their faith in Christ, remained believers to the end.

Three years later, the Coptic Orthodox Church has completed and opened the Church of Al-Shohadaa, or “the Church of the martyrs” dedicated to these 21 men in Al-Our, Egypt- the city where 13 of the 21 men came from:

The Bishop of Samalut Church in Minya, Anba Befnosios, held Mass prayers on Thursday to mark the opening of ‘al-Shohadaa’ (Martyrs) Church in al-Our village, which is dedicated to 21 Coptic martyrs killed by the Islamic State (IS) in Libya, 2015.

20 of the Coptic martyrs had once been residents in Minya’s Samalut and Mattay villages, before they were kidnapped by militants in January 2015. A republican decree was subsequently issued in 2015 to open a church in their memory.

Dozens of Copts and families of the martyrs participated in the Mass in al-Our village. They lifted the Egyptian flag on the church walls and placed depictions of prominent figures. Additionally, posters of Pope Twadros II, Bishop Benosios, and President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi were hung in front of the church.

A statement from the Libyan Interior Ministry said that the remains of the Egyptian Coptic martyrs were uncovered in October 2017.

The bodies were found handcuffed and beheaded, dressed in the same orange outfits they wore in the video showing their brutal murder, the statement said.

Libya’s Public Prosecution announced in September 2017 that the perpetrators of the kidnapping and beheading of 21 Copts in February 2015 had been arrested, after authorities identified the location of the murdered Copts in Sirte.

The Egyptian prosecution had referred 20 people in 2016 to court, for forming a terrorist cell affiliated to the Islamic State group in Libya, saying that a number of the defendants had been involved in the beheading of the 21 Copts. (source)

Iraqi Christian Bishop Declares ‘The Persecution We Have Experienced With ISIS Is What We Have Been Living With For The Last 14 Centuries Under Islam, Anything Less Is Dishonest’

Iraqi Christian Bishop Declares ‘The Persecution We Have Experienced With ISIS Is What We Have Been Living With For The Last 14 Centuries Under Islam, Anything Less Is Dishonest’

Chaldean Archbishop Bashar Warda of Irbil, Iraq recently spoke about the persecution of Christians in Iraq. He said that anybody who is honest with the situation of Christians in Iraq must admit that the persecution of Christians by ISIS is nothing new, and that it has been going on for 14 centuries since the inception of Islam:

If Christians in the Middle East are going to be “honest” with their Muslim dialogue partners, said Chaldean Archbishop Bashar Warda of Irbil, Iraq, Muslims will have to acknowledge that the persecution of Christians in the region did not start with the Islamic State’s rise to power in 2014.
“We experienced this not for the last four years, but 1,400 years,” Archbishop Warda said during a Feb. 15 speech at Georgetown University in Washington, sponsored by the Religious Freedom Research Project of the university’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace & World Affairs.

Christians are partly to blame, too, in the dialogue, according to Archbishop Warda. “We did not push back against the recurring periods of terrorism that inflicted cruel pain upon our ancestors,” he said. He added that Christianity also needs to return to a “pre-Constantine vision” of the church, recalling Jesus’ words shortly before his crucifixion: “My kingdom is not of this world.”

Given the scope of the Islamic State’s campaign to erase Christians and all non-Muslims from the territories it had controlled prior to a counteroffensive that decimated its ranks and holdings, “there is nothing left but to speak plainly,” he said. “When there is nothing left to lose, it is very liberating.”

Archbishop Warda added, “We object that one faith has now the right to kill another. There needs to be a change and a correction within Islam.”

He said the typical Muslim response to Islamic State’s atrocities — declared genocide by the U.S. Department of State in 2016 — falls along the line of “ISIS does not represent Islam,” but rarely goes further, with no acknowledgment of past mistreatment of Christians or an expression of remorse for them.

“Post-ISIS, when ISIS has shaken the conscience of the world, and shaken the conscience of the Muslim majority world as well,” Archbishop Warda said, much of Islam “defines you as infidels.”

“In the Middle East, we have moved from fear to terror to horror,” he said. “Where next? … Hundreds of thousands of innocent people have died.”

He noted, “We have been hearing courageous words from some Islamic leaders. It should be encouraged,” although he cautioned, “we should not be passive, or simply pray for the best.”

With about $3 million donated by Italian Catholics, Archbishop Warda started the Catholic University of Irbil in 2015. It has 82 students, including four Muslims, in undergraduate degree programs in the arts and sciences. While there are other Catholic colleges in the Middle East, he said he thought it was important that this school have the name “Catholic” in its title.

The wait for reconstruction money continues. Archbishop Warda said the money is needed now, but governments just continue to “talk” rather than distribute funds. He took note of a March 14-15 conference in the region sponsored by the U.S. Agency for International Development. “They will probably just talk more” then, he added. “Maybe by late 2020” will the region finally see the promised funds, he guessed aloud.

“Your policy assessments have life-or-death consequences,” the archbishop said, asking for material support and not charitable aid. “Help us develop sustainable ways of life and income in Iraq,” he added, with the most critical needs being education and health.

For the estimated 200,000 or so Christians remaining in Iraq — down from about 1.5 million in 2003, when the United States launched the Iraq War — “ours is a missionary role, to give a witness to the truth of Christ,” Archbishop Warda said. “I am not speaking of conversion. I am speaking of the fundamental truth … that we can show in a moment of unique clarity.”

Archbishop Warda said, “So many of our people have fled, and so few of us are left,” but he added he does not begrudge families for making the decision to live elsewhere permanently for their safety or that of their children. “While it is true that our numbers are small, the number of Apostles were also small.” (source)
