On 21th November Agnes father and her brother went to her boutique the owner of boutique Uzma assured them ‘that she will try to locate her and also finding her contact information with the help of FIA. She also called to investigation officer and threatens them about the high authority to avoid her from this issue. On the same evening the parents went to police station for the registration of complaint for their daughter against boutique’s owner Uzma, the admin officer asked them about the job venue and name of owner. When Admin officer of police station called to the owner then she showed her sympathy and cooperation, after 10 minutes some army official called to admin police officer to avoid the registration complaint against owner of the boutique. The police admin officer registered FIR against unknown.

Mr Shukat Masih and his son Samuel told me about all facts. Agnes is always using auto Rikshaw on monthly bases for her pick and drop. On 20th of November when her Christian auto Rikshaw driver went to pick her from boutique Agnes never came out the auto driver waited and then he informed her parents ‘that she is not coming yet’.

The CCT camera of the society has entry record of Agnes but not had outgoing record.

According to our finding the role of the police is still cooperative but the owner of the boutique want to convert Agnes to Muslim religion. Our team will provide all legal assistance to the victim family and raise the voice all over the world for justice.

Sara Sumbal needs your help

Sara’s Story

My name is Sara Sumbal. My family and I are asylum seekers in Bangkok, Thailand. We fled our home in Karachi, Pakistan, in 2013 when we became victims of persecution after my father, a Christian evangelist, was labeled a blasphemer under the Blasphemy Law for evangelising a Muslim man. My father was initially threatened by two Muslim clerics to stop evangelising or they would kill him and his family. They then ordered him to convert to Islam and all would be well. When he refused, they and the male members of the Muslim man’s family beat him unconscious and left him for dead on a garbage heap.

After my father’s recovery, the extremists threatened him again with death because he continued holding prayer meetings. Because we were traumatised and terrified, our family fled form Karachi to a friend’s home in the city of Bahawalpur.
