A group of Islam radicals reportedly mowed down three Christians in Pakistan with their car, killing one of them, while claiming Christian girls in the country are only meant for “the pleasure of Muslim men.”
Pakistani police officials are slow to investigate the Jan. 13 attack by four Muslims who spotted these Christian girls while they were walking home to the Christian community of Baowala and followed them to flirt.
“How dare you run away from us, Christian girls are only meant for one thing, the pleasure of Muslim men,” one of the murderers shouted.
These men then rammed their cars into the girls. “Two girls fell to the ground; one’s hip was broken, the other’s ribs were shattered,” journalist Raymond Ibrahim reported. “The youngest, Kiran Masih, aged 17, flew up in the air and crashed into the speeding car’s windshield.”
The killers laughed as Masih died from her injuries.
“In any other nation, the perpetrators would be arrested, convicted for murder and sentenced for a long term imprisonment,” human rights activist Wilson Chowdhry said. “Violence against Christians is rarely investigated and highly unlikely to be met with justice.”
“Women particularly have a very low status in Pakistan, but none more so than Christian women who find themselves under the grip or terror, especially after this attack.”
