PERSECUTED CHURCH

Pakistan:

A court decision acquitted Pervaiz Masih on blasphemy charges over a business disagreement. Pervaiz is still considered a blasphemer, leaving his life at risk from vigilantes. Since the initial accusation in 2015, his family has also suffered greatly. His wife Zareena was severely beaten under interrogation by police, leaving her unable to walk or stand properly. Since she was physically unable to properly watch their young daughter, the couple's three-year-old child wandered away and was later found drowned. The exact cause of the tragic drowning remains a mystery. There are 218 other Christians currently facing blasphemy charges. While grateful for these encouraging court rulings, continue upholding these suffering believers in prayer. Intercede on behalf of the Pakistani government, that they will abandon their blasphemy laws, allowing freedom of religion for all of their citizens.
