Lahore: February 19, 2018. PCP) Usman Masih, was falsely accused of committing Blasphemy on 25th May 2016 in Punjab Pakistan was released today from prison.
Today on 16th Feb, 2018, Judge Muhammad Moeen Khokhar, in Ferozewala, a town in Punjab Pakistan, announced the acquittal of all charges connected to the Blasphemy Laws based on the fact that there was no evidence. Usman Masih spent twenty months in the jail for a non-crime which he never committed.
Farrukh Saif International Director of Rescue Christians stated β€œIn 2016, the father of Usman Masih requested us for the help for his son. After our own investigation we found that there was a gang of Christian and Muslim men who took pictures of girls and women and posted them on Facebook and then black mailed Usman Masih. Prior to the Blasphemy accusation, these people physically assaulted Usman Masih. Usman Masih then submitted a criminal complaint, but due to religious bias the police never pressed charges. After Usman had made his complaint in an act of revenge, the same people who had attacked him physically filed false charges of Blasphemy with no evidence. The Police acted upon this false charge due to the discrimination we have witnessed many times in Pakistan over the last few decades.”
Keith Davies Executive Director stated β€œ We are delighted to be able to announce the securing of this acquittal and freedom for Usman Masih. It is tragic that people can get away with fabricating stories with no supporting evidence to imprison Christians using a law that should not be even on the statutes of any country.”
Once again God had used Rescue Christians and our thanks to Director Farrukh Saif for his work in setting another persecuted Christian free.
