Christian prisoners in Pakistan have lost their religious freedom and facing the persecution

Rev. Shahbaz

Dear Sir/Madam,\r\n Please could you pray for the Christians prisoners of Pakistan that Christian prisoners have lost their religious freedom and facing the persecution by Mian Farooq Nazir, Inspector General of Prisons Punjab, Lahore, Pakistan that he has stopped the religious syllabus /Bible study and worship services and religious remission for Minorities prisoners and they have not any opportunity to improve their education under rule 215 of the Pakistan Prison Rulers (Jail Manual). And also reference to the Writ Petition No.599 /1994, dated 01-02-1994 in the Lahore High Court Lahore by Maurice Shahbaz, under articles 37 and 38 of the constitution of Islamic Republic of Pakistan 1973, it is the policy of the state to eradicate illiteracy from the country.\r\nI have many occasions written and visited to the Government official and concern authorities to salve the matter, but still no action has been taken. In Pakistan millions of Christians are routinely persecuted, tortured, raped and murdered by a society that does not tolerate them.\r\nI call upon all members of the Christian community globally to speak on behalf of the Christians in Pakistan and to highlight the distressing, dangerous and life-threatening conditions that we all live under. I appeal to you to help us survive this persecution and to speak on our behalf at the highest religious and governmental levels worldwide. I pray that the Almighty Lord make you a part of our mission.\r\nThank you. God bless you.\r\nWith best regards, \r\nRev. Maurice Shahbaz\r\nFounder and Director\r\nPrisons Mission Society
