Christian Widow In Pakistan Threatened By Husband’s Muslim Family: Convert To Islam Or Die

Matthew 16:24-25, “Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.’”

By Jibran Kahn, AsiaNews – “When I got married , the relatives [ of my husband ] have begun to exert pressure so that I convert [to Islam]. But my husband stood up for me , saying that ‘my wife and my children should feel free to profess their faith’. However, after his death his brothers have begun to terrorize us. They have sworn to kill us if we do not convert to Islam. ‘This is the dramatic and desperate appeal of a Christian woman and widow. Her husband was a forward-looking man, a Muslim but convinced defender of the right to religious freedom. She however is now in danger of being killed by his family members.

The marriage between Muhammad Sadiq Masih and Martha Bibi withstood years of pressure and threats from the man’s relatives, contrary to a bond with an ‘unbeliever’. The pair remained united and over time became parents to three girls and one boy. The daughters were married to men from Christian families – a fragile and often persecuted minority in Pakistan – and decided to keep the faith of their mother.

However, after the father’s death, the girls began to receive threats and pressures from his brothers [ Islamists ] to convert. The eldest daughter Nosheen Afzal, who is married with Kamran Afzal, has suffered direct and personal threats from family members. An uncle branded them as ‘infidels,’ because they live as Christians even though (the girl ) is the daughter of a Muslim . To escape the retaliation they had to leave their home the next night – in haste and in secret.

In recent days, her sisters were also targeted by relatives , with threats and pressures.” Read more.
