Pakistanis Call For Laws Against Forced Conversions

4/7/19 Pakistan (International Christian Concern)- On March 30th, Pakistanis of all religious backgrounds came together to protest in Lahore over forced conversions in the country. Christians, Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs rallied together saying that “the minorities are afraid, a law must be passed to eliminate forced conversions”. In a country that has deep rooted Muslim and patriarchal traditions, ever year at least 1,000 girls are forcibly converted to Islam and recant their faith. In the last 40 days, nine young girls of Christian and Hindu backgrounds have experienced this.

With a unified front, those gathered specifically highlighted two people: Mian Mithu and Ayub Jan Sarhandi. Both are Islamic leaders who have been accused of multiple abductions and conversion cases but have never faced consequences from their actions.

One leader is quoted as saying, “it is unfortunate that many do not consider conversions extracted by force as a violation of human rights.” Pakistani Christians, a minority in the country by religion, also experience social consequences that make them disadvantaged. The call is for the international community to recognize when human rights are being violated in all manners.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
