Here is yet another video of a Pakistani Christian giving his testimony on how Rescue Christians saved him and his family:
His name is Rifaqat Masih, and he was almost killed through the violent instigation of Tehrik-i-Taliban (Pakistani Taliban); but we managed to get him and his family out of the hells of Pakistan.
We thank God for this, and we ask that you please support this cause by going to rescuechristians.org and giving what you can.
All money goes directly into helping the families who we are supporting and preserving.
Rifaqat Masih aged 49, his wife Samina and their three children daughter Shamasa Kiran 19 , two sons Wishal 18 and Rehoboam 16 were the residents of Gulgashat, Peshawar. Rifaqat is a lab technician by profession and his wife is a teacher, the children are all students.
Rifaqat, has been living a happy life and earning his livelihood by working in a hospital run by a religious organization in the city. Unfortunately over the last three years he has been facing serious threats from a religious extremist group Tehreek Taliban TTP.
Rifaqat states “In 2010 Muslim religious groups dropped leaflets inviting us to embrace Islam and threatened us if we denied. There were five minority families in Gulsashat Colony Peshawar – three Christian and two Hindu. We did not pay any heed to that invitation and carried our life as normal. One evening a man approached me by the name of Maulana Mohammed Akram, a cleric of the local mosque who inquired if I had received the invitation to embrace Islam? When I responded yes I did receive the invitation but I cannot leave Christianity, he replied angrily that it is his religious obligation to spread Islam and convert as many as possible to Islam. He advised me to embrace Islam or face dire consequences if I denied Islam. Immediately after two other Christian families that also had been approached moved to a different city in Pakistan. I also left the area within the city with my family. We felt secure when we moved.”
Rifaqat goes on “Knowing the threats to my life and my family and living in the same city is difficult but it was also hard to find a new job in a new city for me and my wife. We continued to follow our living in a new home in Peshawar and tried overcome the fear and threats. After about a year the same man came across me when I was shopping in the market and within a few days we was able to find our new home. My son was going to college and the same man took him to the local Imam Maulana Anees Ur Rehman who threatened my son and family and gave us a deadline or suffer severe consequences.
Rifaqat reached out to our partners on the ground in Pakistan and they checked the story and case history and we allocated funds to relocate the family in a different city in Pakistan as well as provide aid to get them new jobs restart their lives away from threats.
A mass exodus of Christians is currently underway. Millions of Christians are being displaced from one end of the Islamic world to the other.
We are reliving the true history of how the Islamic world, much of which prior to the Islamic conquests was almost entirely Christian, came into being.
The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom recently said: “The flight of Christians out of the region is unprecedented and it’s increasing year by year.” In our lifetime alone “Christians might disappear altogether from Iraq, Afghanistan, and Egypt.”
Ongoing reports from the Islamic world certainly support this conclusion: Iraq was the earliest indicator of the fate awaiting Christians once Islamic forces are liberated from the grip of dictators.
In 2003, Iraq’s Christian population was at least one million. Today fewer than 400,000 remain—the result of an anti-Christian campaign that began with the U.S. occupation of Iraq, when countless Christian churches were bombed and countless Christians killed, including by crucifixion and beheading.
The 2010 Baghdad church attack, which saw nearly 60 Christian worshippers slaughtered, is the tip of a decade-long iceberg.
Now, as the U.S. supports the jihad on Syria’s secular president Assad, the same pattern has come to Syria: entire regions and towns where Christians lived for centuries before Islam came into being have now been emptied, as the opposition targets Christians for kidnapping, plundering, and beheadings, all in compliance with mosque calls telling the populace that it’s a “sacred duty” to drive Christians away.
In October 2012 the last Christian in the city of Homs—which had a Christian population of some 80,000 before jihadis came—was murdered. One teenage Syrian girl said: “We left because they were trying to kill us… because we were Christians…. Those who were our neighbors turned against us. At the end, when we ran away, we went through balconies. We did not even dare go out on the street in front of our house.”
In Egypt, some 100,000 Christian Copts have fled their homeland soon after the “Arab Spring.” In September 2012, the Sinai’s small Christian community was attacked and evicted by Al Qaeda linked Muslims, Reuters reported. But even before that, the Coptic Orthodox Church lamented the “repeated incidents of displacement of Copts from their homes, whether by force or threat.
Displacements began in Ameriya [62 Christian families evicted], then they stretched to Dahshur [120 Christian families evicted], and today terror and threats have reached the hearts and souls of our Coptic children in Sinai.”
Iraq, Syria, and Egypt are part of the Arab world. But even in “black” African and “white” European nations with Muslim majorities, Christians are fleeing.
In Mali, after a 2012 Islamic coup, as many as 200,000 Christians fled. According to reports, “the church in Mali faces being eradicated,” especially in the north “where rebels want to establish an independent Islamist state and drive Christians out… there have been house to house searches for Christians who might be in hiding, churches and other Christian property have been looted or destroyed, and people tortured into revealing any Christian relatives.” At least one pastor was beheaded.
Even in European Bosnia, Christians are leaving en mass “amid mounting discrimination and Islamization.” Only 440,000 Catholics remain in the Balkan nation, half the prewar figure.
Problems cited are typical: “while dozens of mosques were built in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo, no building permissions [permits] were given for Christian churches.” “Time is running out as there is a worrisome rise in radicalism,” said one authority, who further added that the people of Bosnia-Herzegovina were “persecuted for centuries” after European powers “failed to support them in their struggle against the Ottoman Empire.”
And so history repeats itself.
One can go on and on:
- In Ethiopia, after a Christian was accused of desecrating a Koran, thousands of Christians were forced to flee their homes when “Muslim extremists set fire to roughly 50 churches and dozens of Christian homes.”
- In the Ivory Coast—where Christians have literally been crucified—Islamic rebels “massacred hundreds and displaced tens of thousands” of Christians.
- In Libya, Islamic rebels forced several Christian religious orders, serving the sick and needy in the country since 1921, to flee.
To anyone following the plight of Christians under Islamic persecution, none of this is surprising. As I document in my new book, “Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians,” all around the Islamic world—in nations that do not share the same race, language, culture, or economics, in nations that share only Islam—Christians are being persecuted into extinction. Such is the true face of extremist Islamic resurgence.

During an interview with Perry Atkinson of ‘Focus Today’, a program that airs on The Dove, Walid discussed his new book, The Case FOR Islamophobia.
Raoul Wallenberg, born August 4, 1912 saved nearly 100,000 Jews from the Nazi occupied Hungary in World War II. He provided safe houses, visas, food and protection to thousands virtually single-handedly along with resources provide by the U.S. government, but those only after many years of lobbying by a few dogged determined people in the USA.
He is recognized as having saved the most people from Nazi death camps in World War II. We honor his work with our own effort to emulate his courage and values with this new project. It is our intention to help, protect and rescue as many as possible from the nearly one hundred million Christians who are facing severe persecution and even death.
75% of religious persecution in the world is against Christians as per a report by “Church in Need”, a Christian organisation based in the UK.
They Examined 33 countries, citing that most of that persecution today is taking place in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
A startling quote from the study states, “The proportion of countries with a worsening track record of anti-Christian violence and intimidation would be higher were it not for the fact that in many cases the situation could scarcely have been worse in the first place.”
Pakistan is our primary focus for our initial push to save Christians who are suffering from the Blasphemy laws, which are used by Islamic extremists to make up charges against innocent Christians, in order to steal their property and stir up violence against the Christian population.On March 4th the Christian Minister of Minorities Shahbaz Bhatti was gunned down by Islamic extremists causing tremendous fear within the Christian community. Even in the short time since his murder, the violence against Christians has increased dramatically.
The Raoul Wallenberg Project is working with people on the ground who are well connected in the Christian community. They have reached out to us for our support to help alleviate their suffering, and in certain situations, help with their escape. For their protection we cannot expose their names publicly. In the future, large donors who are concerned about the transparency of funding, we can provide the names and details privately.
The work we do is practical. We will be supplying food, medicine, safe houses, legal help for visa applications, and in extreme circumstances, security details for rescue missions.
Our financial goal is to raise one million dollars a month – solely for the Raoul Wallenberg Project – which will allow us to make a significant impact to alleviate much of the suffering of persecuted Christians and remove them from their circumstances. We are working behind the scenes with members of Congress, in particular the staff of Congressman Allen West, who has kindly offered his help on Capital Hill. Other members of Congress will be recruited as public opinion puts pressure on them for their support of this real, and dangerous threat to Christians worldwide.
