(PCP)Qaisar Masih a young boy of age about 18 years was brutally murdered on 21st April 2016, his only sin was that he fell in Love with a Muslim Girl named Mehwish daughter of Muhammad Billa Pehalwan. Billa along with his sons and relatives killed him and hanged him in front of his house displaying a message that No one dares to look at a Muslim women reveals facts finding mission of The Voice Society, a leading Non-governmental organization of Pakistan.
It was first reported by media that Qaisar Masih was killed and hanged on Tree to teach lesson to Christian by Mohammad Billa and others on resisting drug pushing by Muslims in vicinity of Christian to make them drug addicts.
According to recent reports, The Voice received a call from the neighbors on 22nd April at night and a team comprising of Adv. Aneeqa Maria, Shahid Anthony, Napolean Qayyum and Asher Gill went to the place of occurrence at Peer Mahal about 300 KMs away from Lahore.
The team met with family members, his mother, sisters and brothers and also went to the Catholic Church nearby and met Rev. Fr. John Joseph, Sardar Masih the Father of the deceased and few respectable of the Locality.
Rani Sardar the Mother of the Deceased met Adv. Aneeqa with tears in her eyes, she only said that, we all know who killed my son, he was the youngest, he was the apple of my Eye and they killed him brutally and hanged him in front of our House. I only demand Justice. I want the accused to be hanged and punished.
Ishrat Gulraiz is the sister in Law of Deceased and the wife of Gulraiz Masih, she said that the Muslim family is residing right in front of my house. The father of Mehwish (The Muslim girl) had threatened us several times the he will kill Qaisar and will set an example of terror in the whole community because he is trying to convert my daughter. I will never let him do this. She further said that he threatened all the sons of this house that he will finish our generations upon this act. She said, we are scared for our children’s lives now. Police is trying to make it a Suicide case, whereas everyone knows that it is a clear Murder. Our state and the POLICE have failed to provide us security and we assume that they will fail to provide us Justice.
Saira sister of Qaisar, told The Voice’s team that my Brother was innocent, he tried not to contact Mehwish but Mehwish said that she cannot live without him. She wanted to marry my brother. My brother provided her everything. He afforded every need of her and he was willing to marry her later. We told her sisters to ask Mehwish to avoid my brother because her father is a criminal and he will kill my brother. But none of our efforts could save my brother. We demand Justice. Police is with their Muslim fellows and are trying to make it a suicide attempt. She also said that my brother was hanged after being killed and his neck was broken and eyes were swell. There were marks of resistance on his body. Muhammad Billa and his relatives and sons killed my innocent brother.
Sardar Masih Father of Qaisar deceased said that he knows only one thing, if there is God he will do justice with us.
Ashiq Babar Ex Councelor of the Area told The Voice team that an FIR was registered after quiet resistance of the police as Police did not wanted to register an FIR and they were trying to make it a suicide attempt. But later they registered an FIR u/s 302 PPC, The FIR no is 160/16. But ever after the registration of FIR the police kept on influencing the family that it is a case of Suicide and not Murder secondly when we asked them for postmortem of the body of Qaiser, the police again showed its resistance and first refused to allow them for postmortem but later upon the protest of the family and locality they allowed the postmortem with the instructions to the Doctors that it is a Suicide case for sure. Now we don’t know whether the reports will come in our favor or not. Whether we will be given Justice or will be denied as always. We need your help.
