Lahore, we saw gangsters who kidnapped their dear ones were sitting with Mohammad Shahid Iqbad (Member Provincial Assembly) taking tea with SHO.
Kashif Aslam Masih told Sharing Life Ministry Pakistan team “ When we were taken to some unknown place, our eyes were kept closed with a piece of cloth, we were kept closed in an unknown place.
There were empty wine bottles in a large number. Some heavy physique gangsters were present there. Moreover, 16,17 young girls were also sitting over there. I came to know later that four/five girls were Christians”. Kashif told that “ my clothes were taken off, they hanged me by tying my feet with cord and turned my body upside down on the ceiling. Those cruel people started beating me with hot iron pipe. While Pervaiz and Kala were beaten with sticks, pipe and bats. They kicked us very brutally and cruelly.”
Kashif told SLMP team “when they were beating Hanifan bibi, they were continuously saying that she did not bring Christian girls so this was her punishment. We would implicate you in the case of stealing and you would be sent to jail. Sometimes, they said, “If you would ask your family members to arrange for 4 hundred thousand rupees, then you would get rid of this torture”.
