10 May 2009
Lahore, Punjab: May 10, 2009. (Parvez Iqbal correspondent PCP Holland) The Lahore High Court took action on petition filed by sister of Javed Masih and recovered him in a very worse condition. Javed Masih is a Union Councilor of Union Council 9 of
According to Javed Masih who was half conscious and in very terrible condition briefly explained that he was caught hold by the Land lord Mohammad Ali, his son Mohammad Iftikhar including their workers and imprisoned him under their home made custody four days ago. During these four days he was beaten without food and water. Almost everyone on the spot was surprised while Javed Masih was hardly begging for few drops of water. During all this action Javed Masih lost his conscious repeatedly. It was even very difficult for him to breath and talk, Instead all this Javed Masih disclosed and said tried to escape from their custody during dark of the night but armed guards of land lord arrested and beaten him very badly. His wounds were very visible and his bad health condition is a big slap on Pakistani Government and their big promises before the media and international press.
Javed Masih further added that Land Lord also Robbed four hundred thousand rupees forcibly from him and just not to take his name land lord arrested him and brought to this condition. Javed Masih showed a cloth bag in which he saved money which was robed by the Muslim Landlord. He was crying and begging again for water and became unconscious.
Sister of Javed Masih, explained that since four days their family were searching for Javed Masih but no body including local police knew about him and finally I knocked on the door of Law and thankful to court for taking very legal and quick action for recovery of Javed Masih. Muslim landlord Mohmmad Ali, his son and all workers escaped leaving their weapons behind Javed. They also took keys of all locks put together with chains around Javed Masih but Javed Masih was still breathing. He shouted as much he can to get attention of the raiding party. After the help of local peoples Chains were broken and Javed Masih was taken to very first and nearest Narang Hospital.
Abdul Hameed, Sub Inspector of local Police in a very normal ways said the under section 367 of Pakistan Penal Code action will be taken again those responsible, but he also cleared that it depends what will be contents of the application against the culprits. It was very clear on the face of sub Inspector Abdul Hameed that he cannot take strict legal actions against the Land Lord and his supports. The reasons are best known to Abdul Hameed Sub Inspector and need no clarification to us because his Role was clear how he is under the threats of Land Lord.
Javed Masih was kept in a self made home prison by the Muslim Land Lord under a wooden animal trolley in between waste of animal and other dirty things around him. This incident put a big question mark on the face of Pakistani Government and Muslim Religion and their contract leaders that Where is your Law,
human right claims and your religious teachings. Indeed Minorities under you is your responsibilities??? You all are responsible to protect their lives, honor, and properties and what you peoples are doing to them????. Be ready for an unseen action from God almighty who will stand for His Loving Christians and take revenge.
In message to the Javed Masih and his whole family, PCC Pakistan Christian Congress assured him that community support is with you. First we wish Javed Masih to step in a good health and quick recovery for his health.
PCC demanded Government of Pakistan for protection of Javed Masih and his family, The strict and legal action is urged against Mohammad Ali, his son Mohammad Iftikhar and other Muslims involved in all this heinous crime.
