From our contact in Pakistan…
The Local Muslims of Saddiqabad in the town Mandi Farooqabad (district of Shiekhpura) tried to falsely accuse a Christian man named Jan Masih under Pakistan Blasphemy law. A Muslim resident of Saddiqabad named Sehar-ul-Zaman accused Jan Masih, saying that he used a cloth sheet on which there is a foot print which showed great disrespect for the Prophet of Islam. It was stated that it is a blasphemous act against the Prophet as Jan Masih used to spread that sheet on the floor and sat on it, that he even used the sheet to sleep on as well (image resembles the print on the sheet).
Sehar–ul-Zaman instigated other local Muslims who all gathered around Jan Masih’s home and started shouting against the Christians and Jan Masih. Sehar-ul-Zaman also contacted his senior leaders of Sunni Tehreek and Caravan-e-Islam. Our people in Pakistan were informed by the local Christian community of this incident.
Sehar-ul-Zaman is the same man who charged a young Christian boy, Sajid Masih (whom we helped save) under a Blasphemy law a year ago on 19th May 2012.
Our people contacted the local Muslim leaders regarding this issue. They also informed the police that Sehar-ul-Zaman has a track record of blackmail and harassment of the Christian community. One of the Muslim leaders – Haji Rasheed – initiated an investigation and Jan Masih was found innocent as he was not the one who made foot prints on the cloth sheet. Haji Rasheed also stated that they should take action against the factory owner who designed such sheet, not the innocent Christian Jan Masih.
After two days of dialogue with the police and other Muslim leaders, our people successfully saved Jan Masih from being trapped by such a false accusation. No FIR (Pakistan charge sheet) was registered against Jan Masih but his life is still in danger from the extremists. We plan to relocate him within next 48 hours. We would like to request you to keep praying for the Christians of Pakistan. It is apparent that over the last two years, the Blasphemy laws are being enforced even more, in order to persecute the Christian community.
We urge the international Community to lift your voice against these Dark laws and put pressure on the Pakistan government to repeal these laws.

About Shoebat Foundation
Born in Bethlehem of Judea, Walid’s grandfather was the Muslim Mukhtar (chieftain) of Beit Sahour-Bethlehem (The Shepherd’s Fields) and a friend of Haj-Ameen Al-Husseni, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and notorious friend of Adolf Hitler. Walid’s great grandfather, Abdullah Ali Awad-Allah, was also a fighter and close associate of both Abdul Qader and Haj Amin Al-Husseini, who led the Palestinians against Israel. Walid lived through and witnessed Israel’s Six Day War while living in Jericho. As a young man, he became a member of the Palestinian Liberation Organization, and participated in acts of terror and violence against Israel, and was later imprisoned in the Russian Compound, Jerusalem’s central prison for incitement and violence against Israel. After his release, he continued his life of violence and rioting in Bethlehem and the Temple Mount. After entering the U.S, he worked as a counselor for the Arab Student Organization at Loop College in Chicago and continued his anti-Israel activities. In 1993, Walid studied the Tanach (Jewish Bible) in a challenge to convert his wife to Islam. Six months later, after intense study, Walid realized that everything he had been taught about Jews was a lie. Convinced he was on the side of evil, he became an advocate for his former enemy. Driven by a deep passion to heal his own soul, and to bring the truth about the Jews and Israel to the world, Walid shed his former life and his work as a software engineer and set out to tirelessly bring the cause of Israel to tens of thousands of people throughout the world: churches and synagogues, civic groups, government leaders and media.
