(Worthy News) - A Christian Pakistani girl was kidnapped and raped by five Muslims before being returned to her father a day later in a traumatized condition, ucanews.com reports.

Maria, the 15-year-old daughter of Jalal Masih, a local Christian laborer in Sheikhupura city of Pakistan’s Pubjab Province, was taken by five gun-toting Muslim men in a car on June 9th led by businessman Muhammad Sajid, then dropped on her family’s doorstep the next night after having endured severe abuse.

“The locals saw them abducting her at gunpoint in a vehicle. I reached his [Sajid’s] office but he was absent. We made contact the next day and he threatened to return her dead body if we informed the police,” Masih’s First Incident Report (FIR) at the local police station read.

“She was extremely scared.”

Legal Evangelical Association Development (LEAD), which is monitoring the trend of Christian girls abused by Muslim men in Pakistan, said 28 Christian girls were victims of kidnapping and rape between November 2018 and June 2019.

Most believe the isolated incidents of abuse are part of a wider assault on Pakistan's minority religious communities, which are mostly made up of Hindus and Christians, with forced marriage and conversion of young girls the chosen method for assimilating them into the majority Muslim culture.

“Only Christian and Hindu girls are victims in such cases. Crimes against religious minorities are increasing at a high scale in Pakistan,” LEAD national director Sardar Mushtaq Gill told ucanews.com.

As an indicator, the Pakistani province of southern Sidh alone saw over 1,000 such cases last year, according to estimates in the annual report of the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan.

The 96% Muslim nation holds the infamous position of number 5 on Open Doors USA’s World Watch List 2019.

  1. Such rapes put terror down into the very bones of young women like this. Remember, by eastern standards (for Jews girls become women at age 12) she is a woman now. And why would they value western opinions on it. That, though, excuses nothing these men have done to her and others like her.

    I tell you it now is about terror, put down into her very bones because that explains why nothing and no one but the God who truly does exist and His Word, Jesus (Y'shua) can heal it. And heal it He can. And does. But not if her parents now try to sweep it under the bed, or carpet, or by sending her off for Psychological therapy.

    Some things are "God-sized" problems. Much like a lot of global warming can never be fixed by mankind, all or parts of mankind. Too much damage has been done. So too, for this young lady.

    The good part is God is not only able to heal rape and torture (because 5 guys, come on, that was torture), God is willing. She just needs to ask God, better yet, ask Jesus (by whatever name she knows him as) to heal her from this terrible terror. And if she isn't able yet to have even that much trust again, well, living under her father's roof, he can ask for her.

    Therefore, there is much to hope for, much to put her (and our) hope in. His name means Salvation. His name is Y'shua and he is also known in the English Bibles as "Jesus." We all have every reason to have hope and faith, and to love Him.

  2. Here's the problem, in so many ways.

    This particular Worthy News Correspondent consistently reports to us Roman Catholic (and/or other catholic) news as Christian Persecution. Over, and over again, such reports must be investigated and too often turn out to be about Catholics, not Christians. Sure, there is a small chance that this girl and her father, her family, might be catholic Christians. that is possible. Yet, our Bibles tell us (and I shall use Catholic authorized versions, just to prove these things) in:

    1 Cor 5: 6-8 NABRE, "Your boasting is not appropriate. Do you not know that a little yeast[e] leavens all the dough? 7 [f]Clear out the old yeast, so that you may become a fresh batch of dough, inasmuch as you are unleavened. For our paschal lamb, Christ, has been sacrificed. 8 Therefore, let us celebrate the feast, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth."

    1 Cor 5:9-13 NABRE, [g]
    "I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people, 10 not at all referring to the immoral of this world or the greedy and robbers or idolaters; for you would then have to leave the world. 11 But I now write to you not to associate with anyone named a brother, if he is immoral, greedy, an idolater, a slanderer, a drunkard, or a robber, not even to eat with such a person. 12 For why should I be judging outsiders? Is it not your business to judge those within? 13 God will judge those outside. “Purge the evil person from your midst.”

    I repeat one sentence in that, "not even to eat with such a person." Not to even eat with "idolaters." How they shall we promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ if we can not even eat with idolaters? Read that whole Chapter. This is about those who call themselves brethren and yet are idolaters, are slanderers, are drunkards, inside our fellowships. In, with, those we consider our own.

    This article (this news report) comes to us via the "Union of Catholic Asian News Limited." That is the long form of "ucanews.com." It is stated (and almost hidden this time) inside the very first sentence of this Worthy News report, above.

    Likewise, see the word "idolater" in verse 11 directly quoted above, taken from the Catholic's own (Revised) bible. If you do not yet know what an idolater is, seek ye the Lord's face and Word on that. Have a look at Bible Dictionaries. See, the generic dictionaries, read what old Protestant Reformers had to say (Weslyan, or Luther). Have a look at what current Protestant teachers have to say on it.

    Better yet, read up on what present day Torah scholars have to say on the subject. God does answer prayers, you know. It's not a contest. It is not some competition between Jesus as the greatest of martyrs and all the other (dead) saints. There can be no competition with Jesus Christ. No one else's blood saves you or me. No one elses blood can stop Satan flat. Only the blood of Jesus buys us back from hell. Only Christ's.

    What did Jesus teach us, on how to pray? Is it not a direct communication with the Father? Then ask Him, our Father, to show you who is, and who is not, an idolater. Be prepared for Him to name you, to you. And to do that, be open to what God, the Father, and His Word come Incarnate, Jesus, want you to do as part of turning from that sin, from now on. For that is the crux of Protestant "issues" with Catholics. That is the (main) reason for the whole of the Protestant Reformation. And in many cases, it it is also a main issue many Hebraic Christians have with those stuck in some kind of mind-warp called The Protestant Reformation. It too is part and parcel of so many "issues" Messianic Jews have with non-Messiah accepting Jews, idolatry. To place a living man, up on some pedestal as comparable with God's own Messiah for us all, also is idolatry. There can only be one Messiah from the Holy One of all Israel.

    Just as importantly, therein lies the problem and reason why this poor girl was taken and raped. Did this poor girl, or her father, even know Jesus? Do they pray instead to Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ? Or do they pray to some other "Saint" who likewise, had some horrible death, which is how one becomes a "Saint" in the Catholic faiths? Perhaps they pray to, and/or adore (often called "venerate," like that makes it not an adoration) and hope in the (deceased now) Patron Saint of Pakistan, St. Francis Xavier? The same "Saint" on which the new Roman Catholic Pope "Francis" took his name (on Inauguration).

    Really, just who is their god? Is it the God of Moses? ...and all the saints. If you pray to someone else besides Jesus and/or his (our) Father, that is idolatry. Do you pray to me? That would be idolatry too, plus witchcraft. It's some form of witchcraft when the supposed recipient of said pray is someone now alive on this earth. It is some form of necromancy (witchcraft) to pray to the deceased. The first king of Israel, Saul, lost his place as king, because he had a woman (a witch to be specific) call up the ghost, the spirit, of the prophet Samuel. We, God's kids, are not allowed to do that.

    Read, in the ASV, 1 Samuel, Chapter 28. It explains it all. There simply is not enough room to do it all here.

    Salvation is in Jesus Christ. Only, in Jesus Christ. It is not his mother (blessed be her name) or his (step) father, Joseph, or St Francis who seems like he very likely did know and follow Christ. Leaving the Catholic Church, in Francis Xavier's time, meant instant death. Sometimes, some people, in certain places, or decades, are called by God to work within a social entity. For example, many people (I.e. Christians) live and work and witness, within oppressive nations, never rocking the boat they have to live, and work in. That does not in any way validate, say, North Korea or Chine or Viet Nam. This is also a perfect example of the Submissive Wife. Have a look at the story of Abigail, married to Nabal, who the Bible shows us was a foolish man at best. Read 1 Samuel 22. There are untold numbers of wives like Abigail in many cults, married to foolish men while their wives have read and understood their Bibles and have relationships with Jesus Christ, himself. What do they do? All are not foolish just because husbands are. What are they to do? They must ask God, Himself, just as all Catholic's must. Just as anyone, in any cult or in an Atheist group, must do. The Way is the same...for all people. In every nation. Ask the God of Abraham, or of Moses, or of David, or Hannah, or Sarah, or Miriam.

    However, it is not the blood of anyone but Y'shua (Jesus) which has the power to save us all. It is only his own blood, for he was Lamb, which the Eternal High Priest, now in Heaven, offers. His name is (in English) Jesus, the Messiah (Christ). He was alive and he rose bodily, so his blood is still Alive again too. This is why it is important to accept the sacrifice made by Y'shua (Jesus). And that he rose from that grave Alive, literally, and with his body Resurrected. he did so for Lazarus, another foretelling miracle, much the same kind. He is glorified, but never shedding his body, it was transformed and taken to be with the Father, with his Spirit. It was made better. Like the seed tat dies, and yet it was part of God's Word come in the flesh and as he rose back to life, so did his body and blood return to all it was before he died, plus all that Jesus had with the Father, in heaven. It acts on us, for us, and to us, just as (and so much more) the first Passover lamb's blood on the doorposts of the homes of all Israel, did. It is because those lambs were slain according to the Word of God given to that whole (enslaved) nation, via a true Prophet, Moses. Like all things leading up to the arrival of the true Messiah and rightful King of the Jews, they were foreshadowing. They were showing the way to what was truly coming.

    The significance of the fact that Jesus Christ shed his blood, for us, just can not be overstated. What Y'shua did is Eternal. He is our Eternal High Priest. We need no other. If we may speak directly to the Father (as Jesus taught us) then with one (eternal) high priest, we have it all! That too is part and parcel of the good news of Jesus Christ. This is almost as important as who our Eternal High Priest is. And so, from the new and revised Roman Catholic's endorsed bible itself:

    Hebrews 4:14-16, New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
    The passage is titled: "Jesus, Compassionate High Priest." 14 [a],
    "Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast to our confession. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has similarly been tested in every way, yet without sin. 16 So let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and to find grace for timely help."

    When one (anyone, esp a Catholic) reads that, in its context, forgetting all that is taught (brainwashed) to change God's own Word to us there, it makes clear who is our Passover Lamb. No one other than Y'shua HaMashiach, aka Jesus, the Christ, is, or ever can be, God's own Passover Lamb slain for us. That is exactly the Name by which John the Baptist gave him, on recognizing Jesus, publicly, John called him, "Lamb of God Who Takes Away the Sins of the World." And directly after John's recognition, naming him, and baptizing of Jesus, The Holy One of Israel, God Himself, spoke audibly to the public, saying, "this is My Son, in whom I am well pleased." It really doesn't get a whole lot better than that.

    There are no comparable skies opening up and the heaven's speaking for a Pope, any Pope.

    That "blood of the Lamb" of the Eternal Lamb of God, buys us back, all of us, who would believe the Gospel (good news) of Jesus, the Christ. That blood therefore must be eternal too. The very body of Jesus Christ, in heaven, still exists. Else, why do any of us, Protestant, Christian, Catholic or Messianic, celebrate Communion (aka The Lord's Feast)? Or how does it buy back the sinner not yet even born? How does it cover me, now. How does it cover you who defend Pope's as something God must respect, for He "is not a respecter of persons"! Peter said that. The first Peter. The real one and only apostle Peter. It is quoted, what Peter said, in Act 10:34 of the Roman Catholic Bibles.

    The father of this poor girl did not raise her right. The father of this poor girl can repent. She is old enough to have called upon the very Name of the Almighty One. Maybe she did. Truth be told, perhaps that is why these 5 Muslim monsters gave her back, alive. Perhaps she called on the right Savior after all, and asked for a miracle. While this is indeed a story of great persecution for one's faith, it just might be also a great testimony of Jesus as her Savior. We can not tell. That is the problem with these Catholic tales of persecution. It is not her persecution that needs to be told, we need to hear why did these monsters return her? Why did they go to the trouble of leaving her alive? Why did they transport her back to her own father's house afterwards? Did she cry out "upon the Name of Jesus" while they raped her. Did they tire of her doing that? Both can leave off the Catholic churches there. That father can lead his family, rightly, now. It is just such men as her father who our Lord calls to start up real fellowships. They, all of them, can be saved. Unless the Roman Catholic congregations there seize them and pervert their testimonies into something else. It's known for doing that...for millenniums now.

    1 Co 10:13  ASV, "There hath no temptation taken you but such as man can bear: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation make also the way of escape, that ye may be able to endure it."

    Maybe Jesus "made a way of escape" for her.

    Maybe this glass is half full.
